Lexington, KY – The all new 12-ft. diameter Element by Big Ass Fans is an energy-efficient, silent air movement solution designed specifically for air conditioned spaces. When Element is integrated with existing HVAC systems, the result is a more cost-effective method of cooling and better air circulation.
Element is an industrial-grade ceiling fan that provides the first stage of cooling in the summer. The patented airfoil and winglets help move air silently and efficiently over large spaces for maximum coverage. As temperatures rise, the air conditioning can then be activated to maintain humidity control and provide additional cooling. By using Element as the first method of cooling, the startup of the HVAC system can be delayed several weeks in mild climates, further reducing operational costs.
This strategy can be incorporated into most building automation systems to reduce operating costs, which can mean a 10 to 15 percent reduction over stand-alone air conditioning systems. Due to its large volume of air movement, Element can also be used to distribute the air from the HVAC system year round. This significantly reduces the amount of ductwork required in buildings and lowers the overall energy consumption of HVAC systems.
