HVLS is an acronym for high-volume low-speed. HVLS fans are oversized fans for large spaces, usually commercial and industrial facilities which have high ceilings, and a very large volume of air to move.
HVLS fans work exactly how they sound – the blades move slowly, unlikely a regular residential fan you would find in a home. But the blades on an HVLS fan are usually 4-10+ feet long, which means they are able to move massive amounts of air with a much lower speed than the consumer fans you would find at stores like lowes or home depot.
HVLS fans are an option for any space that can fit one, they provide a significantly higher level performance than regular sized fans. This means you’re able to cool spaces better, distribute more air more evenly, and use less energy – saving you money on heating and air conditions and saving you money on the energy used by the fan itself.
Right now there are many HVLS options on the market including brands like Big Ass Fans, Macroair, Hunter Fans & more, but they all have 1 major problem limiting their performance.
Humongous Fan is leading the industry with a humongous advantage. If you pay attention to the design of the fan blades, Humongous Fan is the only American HVLS fan manufacturer that uses Performance Engineered Blades™ – blades that were designed uniquely for HVLS fan performance.
Humongous Fan fan blades provide superior performance because the blade was designed and engineered to mimic the most efficient blades in the world – propeller blades and windmill blades. Why would you create a fan blade that isn’t designed like a propeller? Well we don’t know why…
In 2007 Humongous Fan thought – we could do it better, so we did. Our Performance Engineered Blades resemble that of a propeller because they are widest near the hub. The closer you get to the hub of the fan, the slower the blade is actually moving, so it needs to be bigger to optimize the amount of air it can push. Making the blade wider near the hub improves airflow significantly without compromising energy consumption.
This thought process led to the development of the Humongous Fan Fan blade, an HVLS fan system that maximizes airflow along every point of the blade, allowing for a lighter-weight, higher-efficiency system with a bigger lifetime value. Humongous Fan maximizes airflow, improving temperature change, and providing more energy savings.
Humongous Fan Fans provide industry-leading airflow giving the best possible performance. This means our fan system lets you feel up 15º cooler in the summer while saving up to 33% on energy bills, YEAR ROUND.
Humongous Fan has a full line-up of HVLS fans for sale, from 8-foot fans perfect for smaller or narrow spaces all the way up to 20-foot fans for massive warehouses or industrial spaces – and everything in between.
