Lower your energy bills: Save up to 25% on heating costs and up to 30% on cooling costs.

Unrivalled warranty: Stay at ease with warranties for 50,000 hour usage and one-year labour.

Energy rebates: Be eligible for energy rebates in select areas of Ontario.

Low operational cost: Move the most amount of air for the low operational cost of $0.25-$1.50/day.

Maintenance-free: All MacroAir HVLS Fans only have two moving parts. A gearless, direct drive motor drives the fan without using oil. No oil = no leaks!

Increase worker productivity: These HVLS Fans use evaporative cooling to make workers feel up to 8°F cooler, reducing the number of heat stress breaks.

Improve worker/product safety: Prevent condensation build-up on floors and products.


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.
  • Reduce energy bills by 1% per foot of ceiling height.
  • Save energy in the summer by raising your thermostat set point (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.

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.

HVLS Fans can be used in both winter and summer

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

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