Information

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.

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.

Comparing a Direct Drive Motor to a Traditional Motor

  • 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 forming because of inadequate airflow and poor ventilation. Poor ventilation and airflow can cause stale warm air, which is a breeding ground for bacteria and other pollutants. These bacteria and other pollutants can cause breathing issues, illnesses and other health issues. It is essential to maintain a fresh air supply and air movement in work areas to keep employees healthy.

HVLS Fans Can Be Used in Both Winter and Summer

MacroAir winter and summer usage

Winter usage (left): Slow-moving air column carries warm air from the ceiling down to floor level.

Summer usage (right): Large air column delivers a cooling breeze across the entire body.

Easy Controls with the Touch of a Button

touchscreen controls for HVLS fan

Controller 4 and Controller 30

Seamlessly control up to four fans or up to 30 fans at one centralized location with a fully-integrated LCD touchscreen panel. Fans can be run at speeds and direction independently of one another or synchronize to give you optimal fan control.

Take your smart controls even further by adding a MacroAir Temperature Sensor. Fans on your network will start and stop based on your desired temperature threshold to take the guesswork out of providing maximum comfort.

AirLynk BMS Integration controller

AirLynk BMS Integration

Do you work in a building or facility controlled by a Building Management System (BMS)? Now you can integrate your HVLS fans into your existing building management system to control and automate all the fans in your facility. No need to add a new control panel, just add your HVLS fans to your BMS console with AirLynk and control everything from one station.

Watch How Air Moves in Your Facility

Visualize the air movement in your facility with MacroAir’s exclusive AirViz visualization software. AirViz is specifically designed to help strategically place MacroAir HVLS Fans in key areas to move the maximum amount of air in any given space despite obstructions such as walls or tall racks.
