MacroAir High Volume Low Speed (HVLS) Fans

The HVLS Fan – The Power of 34 Fans in One

One HVLS ceiling fan can do the work of 34 small industrial fans. Save on energy costs on as the single HVLS fan has low operational cost of $0.25-$1.50/day, compared to running 34 fans. Also free up floor and table space, by replacing multiple pedestals fans with a single HVLS fan.

What is HVLS and Why is its Technology Revolutionary?

MacroAir HVLS ceiling fans move a High Volume of air at a Low Speed (HVLS). Longer blades create a wider column of air that travels farther than conventional fans, while the low speed provides gentle air movement rather than disruptive wind. In addition, the amount of power needed to drive the MacroAir HVLS Fan is reduced due to its low velocity. MacroAir HVLS Fans result in complete air circulation with nearly silent operation. These fans operate at a minimal cost of approximately $0.25-1.50/day, depending on the model.

  • Immediately improve working conditions by making employees feel warmer in the winter and up to 8°F cooler in the summer.
  • Improve air quality and reduce the health risks by circulating fresh air through the facility to prevent inadequate airflow and poor ventilation.
  • Reduce energy bills by 1% per foot of ceiling height.
  • Save energy in the summer by raising your thermostat setpoint (save 6% per degree raised).
  • Equalize temperatures from floor to ceiling and front to back.
  • Speed up processing times for manufacturing, printers, disaster recovery, etc.
  • Increase safety by reducing condensation and moisture build-up.
  • Warm-up large areas 5x faster through even heat distribution.
  • Improve worker productivity by regulating air temperatures to reduce heat stress breaks.
  • Can work with your existing HVAC system by helping circulate air to the ceiling to make it easier for your HVAC system to cycle the air.

Comparing a Direct Drive Motor to a Traditional Motor

MacroAir Direct Drive Motor:

  • Up to 20% decrease in weight
  • No oil, no leaks
  • Silent operation
  • No VFD + 3x torque
  • Slim, sleek design
  • Zero maintenance
  • Only two moving parts
Traditional Motor:

  • Heavy, puts strain on ceilings
  • Use oil, potential for leaks
  • Noisy
  • Separate VFD
  • Bulky design
  • Maintenance required
  • Many moving parts

Prevent Health Risks and Improve Air Quality

HVLS fans circulate fresh air throughout your facility to improve air quality and reduce the health risks from inadequate airflow and poor ventilation. Poor airflow causes stale warm air, which is a breeding ground for bacteria and other pollutants. As a result, these pollutants cause breathing issues, illnesses and other health issues. Keep employees healthy maintaining a fresh air supply and airflow.

HVLS Fans Can Be Used in Both Winter and Summer

Use your HVLS fan all year to save up to 25% on heating costs and up to 30% on cooling costs! Create a breeze with an evaporative cooling effect in the summer to make people feel up to 8°F cooler. On the other hand, in the winter months, your HVLS fan will push down the warm air from the ceiling to keep everyone warm in the winter months.

Customers That Love This Product

After the installation of a few MacroAir HVLS Fans, we’ve seen a positive impact in equalizing temperatures throughout our facility which resulted in significant gas savings.

This past week with it being so cold we have noticed that the air barriers have stopped the cold from getting in and the fan keeping the warm air moving, allowed us to work in t-shirts because we are so comfortable.

Working with Northern Dock Systems for installation of our HVLS [fan] has been a great experience for Corvex! From quotation to installation, Adam and his team provided excellent customer service and support.
