Destratification is the process of mixing air – the warmer air at the ceiling with the cooler air at the floor – to achieve a more even temperature profile. In large, high-ceiling buildings, it means big cost savings, and at a minimal investment. Our fans target air movement in your buildings to bring heat trapped at the ceiling down to the floor. The result is — you turn the temperature setting lower, you turn it on later, it runs less often, and your customers stay longer. Air-Row fans have been successful in cutting energy costs by 20% or more. Click here to for an animated illustration of just how “destratification” works for you.
Our low-maintenance fans are ideal for any building where there is a large temperature differential between the floor and the ceiling, including:
Air-Row Fan Company has designed products to meet particularly challenging heating and cooling issues inherent with large, high-ceilinged buildings. Air-Row Fans are not “paddle” fans, but rather “destratification” fans that push air down in long columns to rotate the hot air at the ceiling with the cooler air down low. Beyond this, Air-Row’s fan products address many specific challenges –
Air-Row fans set the industry standard for blowing the greatest amount of air at the most efficient cost. The following readings were taken using a hand-held Supco Digital Air-Flow/Volume Meter (DAVM). In each case, the integrity of the air column was maintained, and the air column was never wider than three (3) feet at any elevation.
Air-Row’s fan products create very little noise, particularly on “low” or “medium” speed. Fans used at “high” speed are usually at higher ceiling heights where the noise is not an issue. To the right are typical decibel levels at various heights and speeds. You can see that even at “high” speed, Air-Row fans are no louder than a typical conversation
In a typical commercial/industrial building with a 20′ ceiling, the temperature differential from floor to ceilings can be in excess of 15 degrees. The addition of Air-Row fans can decrease that differential to 2-3 degrees. In addition, the fans will decrease the HVAC run-time and save 20% or more in energy costs
See the charts above. Air-Row has designed its fan products to fit into tight spaces among ceiling joists, beams, and duct runs, preventing any size or weight restrictions
Air-Row’s fan products set the industry standard for producing the most air for the least power. The Air-Row fan uses the equivalent power of a 40 watt light bulb, and 120 volts apply for these amperages
Fans need to be placed strategically to achieve the best results. The key to success if the proper placement of the fans, therefore Air-Row provides custom consultation to help you meet the specific challenges of your building. For best air mixing, there should be no obstruction from floor to ceiling
No. Air-Row Fans may be created without any exposed fan blades
Fan installation is simple, and each product comes with its own set of instructions. The Air-Row Fan Company has designed its fans to be the primary destratification device in large buildings. The key to success is proper placement, therefore Air-Row offers consultation specific to your building. With the Air-Row Fans in place, the main HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) supply air fans will only run when they are required for fresh air or thermal change
Air-Row products use a better fan blade for greater heat resistance, which is impervious to airborne chemicals and moves 10-20% more air. The Air-Row F-18 moves air down from as high as 40’ in a controlled column no more than 2-3’ wide.
In scientific terms, it’s the process of mixing air. For you, it means cost savings. In big, high-ceiling buildings, it means big cost savings, and at a minimal investment. Our fans take the air in your building and mix it like no other fan to achieve a more consistent temperature. The result is — you turn the temperature setting lower, you turn it on later, and your customers stay longer. Click below to see just how “de-stratification” works for you.
