Farmers live and work at the mercy of the weather, and all too often that includes hot and cold days working on equipment in the shop. Beat the summer heat and improve winter work conditions with a single solution: Big Ass Fans®. Spanning up to 24 feet (7.3m) in diameter, Big Ass Fans move massive amounts of air to provide a breeze throughout the entire shop. Their patented airfoil and winglet systems are designed to sweep air over and around obstructions, including heavy equipment, making occupants feel up to 10°F (5.6°C) cooler.
Studies* indicate comfortable workers are more productive and moving fans up and off the floor creates a safer environment by minimizing trip hazards. A single Big Ass Fan can replace dozens of small, noisy overhead and pedestal fans while using only a fraction of the energy. Move hot air away from technicians working on running machinery and provide a comforting breeze throughout the space at the same time.
In the winter, Big Ass Fans are slowed to gently redirect heat from machinery or heating systems back down to the occupants’ level, improving both comfort and efficiency. The energy savings are similar to turning the thermostat down 3 to 5°F (2 to 3°C) degrees, which can translate to a serious reduction in heating costs – as much as 30 percent. And we can help you with energy-saving rebates, too.
