Classrooms, recreation centers, libraries and cafeterias are designed to house more students and operate more intelligently than ever before, often hosting a variety of activities. Available in a variety of sizes and models, Big Ass Fans® offer silent air circulation, allowing students to actually hear themselves think.
COMFORT IS MORE THAN A NOUN
In facilities without air conditioning, Big Ass Fans’ 10°F (5.6°C) cooling effect improves comfort without the distracting noise and energy draw that accompanies numerous small, high velocity fans. They also work in tandem with AC systems to provide a cooling effect and evenly distribute conditioned air throughout a space. Facility managers can utilize the energy-efficient fans to maintain occupant comfort with a higher AC set point, which saves money.
In winter, slow your Big Ass Fans to gently redirect rising warm air at the ceiling back down to desk level, improving comfort without creating drafts that would blow away papers. You’ll also reduce heating expenses up to 30 percent. And since Big Ass Fans are so energy efficient, organizations that upgrade to our fans can often take advantage of energy-saving rebates. They’re clearly the smart choice!
WE WENT BACK TO SCHOOL
If you’re seeking LEED designation for your facility, Big Ass Fans has more than 40 LEED-accredited design team members ready to assist you during any stage of the design process–from initial designs to final installation. We’re also happy to send Revit® files, technical specs or even help you through the LEED process.
WHITE PAPER HOMEWORK
It’s a fact of life—school budgets are always tight. Finding ways to cut costs, save energy, and keep students and teachers comfortable and focused are constant concerns when designing or renovating schools. With that in mind, we worked with architecture and engineering firms to put our fans to the test in a variety of educational facilities. After months of research and extensive testing, the result is a library of case studies and white papers that demonstrate the benefits of Big Ass Fans in educational environments. Check them out!
