From classrooms to gyms, great halls to cafeterias, Big Ass Fans take top honors in comfort. In the winter, slow your Big Ass Fans (large or small) to gently push warm air from the ceiling back to the floor to improve and reduce energy costs.
Whether it is heat, cold, or humidity, discomfort can strike anywhere and our building envelopes all vary-- ultimately, the effects of discomfort cripple students' morale and productivity and not every space is equipped to solve this.
In 1999, a fledgling fan company set out to do something about it: It started with a big idea in engineering: that the combination of size and quality design could fundamentally change what ceiling fans could accomplish. That high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) airflow—an entirely new concept—was the key to making spaces more comfortable and efficient. Because the “HVLS Fan Company” thought big, it didn’t take long for people to notice the impact our products had on facilities or for them, to re-brand the company the way they saw us: as upstart innovator Big Ass Fans. For schools, churches, and other public use spaces, we happily provide "de-Assed" products, or wherever this may be a point of concern.
Fast forward to today, the innovation did not falter- Our latest Clean Air System technology is now available after first being developed in 2017 as a solution to help with reducing infection spread of Tuberculosis in Rwandan hospitals. Big Ass Fans’ Clean Air System (CAS) is independently tested and proven to kill SARS-CoV-2 and other harmful pathogens using UV-C light and ion technology. Fans equipped with CAS provide comfort to your spaces, making a difference that your students and staff can feel.
Already being employed world-wide in countless public, commercial and residential applications, Clean Air System is an ideal solution for schools as being newly demonstrated, here at home by the Ottawa Catholic School Board. Since May 2021, they have purchased over 200 Haiku UV-C fans for their spaces. *The Big Ass Fans Clean Air System UVGI (UV-C) Antimicrobial Technology kills 99.9% of viruses in the air in 20 minutes. Virus testing includes SARS-CoV-2 and PhiX174 bacteriophage.
