HVLS fans are High Volume, Low Speed fans.
HVLS fans are usually ceiling mounted and they distribute great amounts of air over large areas. Fan blades of traditional high-speed fans are typically 3 to 4 feet in diameter, while HVLS fans uses blades that are between 8 to 24 feet in diameter. The big difference in the size of the blades means that conventional fans need to work twice as much compared to these fans and thus spending more energy. HVLS fans are designed to circulate air effectively and efficiently and thus offering 20% to 30% savings on energy consumption.
As an example, one 24 feet MAKO HVLS Fan was installed on a church. It replaced 22 industrial fans and 8 evaporative coolers for an UNBELIEVABLE energy savings of 80% while increasing air circulation volume by 900%.
HVLS fans are also and ideal supplement to air conditioning. Moving air produces a wind chill factor, giving a person the sensation of being exposed to a lower temperature than the actual measured temperature. This means that the thermostat of air conditioning systems can be set at least 3 or 4 degrees higher without a noticeable change in comfort. Increasing the thermostat settings can reduce energy consumption by as much as 20%.
MAKO HVLS fan’s unique patended design uses a complex countoured shape that varies along its length. It is the shape of the blade that generates huge volume of air movement without using too much energy. The airflow effect caused by these blades is similar to natural, intermittent wind.
- Reduced humidity and condensation
- It also promotes cleaner air due to better air circulation.
- Improves comfort and efficiency of employees and thus raising productivity
- Saves space due to the elimination traditional floor or wall fans
MAKO HVLS Fans are prefect for:
- Aviation Facilities
- Convention Centers
