Multiple Application HVLS or High Volume Low Speed Big Industrial Ceiling Fans

The bigger the area, the harder it is to maintain. Large industrial facilities such as warehouses and manufacturing plants present a huge operational challenge because of their size.

With extremely tall ceilings and a lot of square footage to cover, cooling, heating  or destratifying the air in these spaces—as well as keeping its occupants comfortable—can be difficult. The solution: HVLS big industrial ceiling fans 6 feet to 24 feet in diameter can provide a comfortable climate and reduce energy cost for large industrial facilities. An individual fan can cover up to 24,000 square feet of area.

Keep your facility, and the people that work there, cooler and more comfortable while taking a load off of your air conditioning system with HVLS or high volume, low speed ceiling fans. Applications for these high efficiency industrial grade ceiling fans include the following:

Warehouse – Industrial ceiling fans help keep product integrity in tact, while also creating happier workers

Agriculture – HVLS ceiling fans reduce feed spoilage, animal foot / leg problems and produce healthier happier animals – reduce dust, mold and mildew – keep bugs and smells away – decrease ambient temperatures

Food & Beverage Facility – Ceiling mounted high volume low speed fans keep ambient conditions steady to help insure the success of every batch produced

Restaurants & Bars –  Patrons, workers and product alike will appreciate air circulating ceiling fans – Pennies a day makes these fans a cost savings to you over much less efficient AC costs

Aviation / Hangars / Airports – Help keep temperature fluctuations to a minimum for traveler, technicians and service workers by utilizing a high-volume, low-speed type fan

Manufacturing – The fact is that temperatures affect productivity and worker safety – concentration is lost when either too hot or too cold – air quality is also a major issue in manufacturing. Either as a stand alone unit, or along side your existing HVAC system, the HVLS ceiling fan may be an effective way to cool the area(s), reduce costs, and as a byproduct increase productivity.



By incorporating industrial HVLS fans into your overall HVAC system strategy, industrial property owners can realize significant energy savings while also taking part in the  growing sustainability movement.

What are HVLS Ceiling Fans?

High-volume, low-speed ceiling fans displace a high-volume of air because of their huge fan blades. HVLS industrial fans are designed for large areas, as their blades have a diameter of at least seven feet. Large blades aside, it is actually their low speed that makes them so effective. Because they move so much air with each revolution, they are able to rotate much more slowly than a household ceiling fan would, which reduces air turbulence and improves circulation.

HVLS Industrial Ceiling Fans Reduce Energy Costs

HVLS industrial ceiling fans are must-have items for any industrial property owner because they can help lower energy costs throughout the year. 

In hot conditions, an HVLS ceiling fan helps deliver the cool air provided by air conditioning systems throughout the entire space. By eliminating cold spots near vents and helping cool airflow reach everywhere, HVLS industrial fans allow for greater temperature control. Also, they reduce the workload for air conditioning systems, which can be a huge source of energy and cost savings.  

In cold conditions, industrial HVLS ceiling fans help preserve the existing heat in the building and make sure it is evenly distributed. Without an effective ceiling fan, the air in industrial spaces becomes stratified, which means that there are layers of different air temperatures throughout the space. HVLS industrial ceiling fans fight this natural process by helping to push the warm air down from the ceiling to ground level. 

Integrating HVLS industrial fans into your building’s existing HVAC system will significantly reduce energy consumption all year round. Learn more about how an HVLS fan ceiling can reduce your energy costs by using our handy calculator below.

How HVLS Fans Improve Industrial Spaces

Industrial spaces have high ceilings and massive square footage, which makes regulating indoor temperatures and humidity levels very challenging. 

Responding to these challenges is precisely why HVLS ceiling fans were designed and implemented. Rather than cranking up HVAC systems to their maximum capacity, adding an big industrial ceiling fan provides a simple solution to a complex set of problems.

The benefits of HVLS industrial ceiling fans include:

Energy Cost Savings

Because your building will require less heating in cold conditions and less air conditioning in warm conditions, HVLS fans will put a lot of money back in your pocket over the long term. They are easy to install, and don’t require any modification to existing HVAC systems, which makes their up-front costs manageable. 

Improved Productivity

More and more studies are beginning to show what industrial building owners already know through experience: that productivity suffers in uncomfortable conditions. This is a phenomenon that applies equally in cold or hot temperatures. The further temperature and humidity levels get away from a comfortable range, the more productivity drops. 

With the help of HVLS industrial ceiling fans, maintaining consistent temperatures throughout a facility is easily achieved, which will go a long way to keeping your workforce happy and productive. 

Environmental Sustainability

Because HVLS ceiling fans reduce overall energy usage, they can be an integral part of your efforts to make your building more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Increased Safety

Large, open-concept buildings like industrial facilities often contain significant amounts of dust, chemical fumes and other airborne contaminants that can have negative health effects on workers and visitors alike. 

With a large industrial fan, your building will have improved air circulation and increased air quality, which reduces the health risks from airborne pollution and lets everyone breathe easier.

A Large Industrial Fan Can Solve Big Problems

Not all solutions need to be complicated or expensive. 

A single HVLS industrial fan can solve many of the common problems faced by industrial facilities. For optimal heating, cooling, and ventilation, reduced energy costs, and healthier, more productive employees, an HVLS fan is often the best answer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the largest fan that you offer?

The Largest fan we manufacture is the EQ24. Our 24’ diameter fan is the largest fan allowed as per National Fire Protection Association guildance. Refresh fans manufacture high volume low, speed fans for industrial, commercial, and agricultural use.

Which fan do you recommend? And why?

We analyse every application to learn about your specific goals. Each application requires a different set of air movement requirements. It is important to take into account obstruction, whether your application is for cooling, heat savings, or both. Once we understand your specific facility we can design a layout and recommend the correct HVLS Fans to maximise your return on investment.

Where are Industrial Ceiling Fans used?

Commercial or industrial ceiling fans are typically used in Manufacturing, Distribution / Logistics, Automotive, Retails, Fitness, Military, Agriculture, Dairy Farms, schools, churches, offices, factories, and warehouses. Such a fan is designed to be more cost-effective and energy-efficient than traditional directional fans.

These fans allow for greater temperature control which lead to reduced environmental impact and significant cost-saving.

Frequently Asked Industrial Ceiling Fan Questions


Industrial ceiling fans are used to regulate temperatures in large, indoor spaces in both hot and cold conditions.


In order to cool a large space, like an industrial facility, you need a fan that can displace a massive amount of air. High-volume, low-speed fans are the best type of ceiling fan for this application because they move large amounts of air with great efficiency.


Just because a ceiling fan is rotating slowly doesn’t mean that it is not powerful or effective. Smaller ceiling fans with powerful motors consume a great deal of energy, and have a high cost of operation. HVLS fans, by contrast, are designed to be as efficient as possible, delivering powerful results far more effectively with their massive, slowly rotating blades.
