There are plenty of factors to consider when trying to keep your commercial space comfortable and safe. We want to take some time to provide additional information on a system that can make keeping your building or space comfortable that much easier.

Using commercial ceiling fans in Spokane, ID can help keep your commercial space far more comfortable, especially when paired with a commercial HVAC system. Let’s explore why the installation of a commercial fan is a great investment for your business.

What Makes Commercial Ceiling Fans Unique

Maybe you have found yourself considering whether it is worth it to get a commercial or industrial fan, rather than just installing a fan that is made for a house. Wouldn’t a residential fan work just fine? While a residential fan can work if your business is run in a house that has been re-zoned for business, we’d advise sticking with commercial fans for other types of spaces. This is because these fans are made to really serve these larger spaces with larger demands. Here’s why they’re unique:

  • Larger blade size: Much like a commercial HVAC system, a commercial ceiling fan is larger in size. This is because they are made to serve larger spaces effectively and efficiently. These fans can have fan blades that range between 52 to 100 inches in length.
  • Sturdier blade materials: The fan blades of a residential fan are likely to be made of a light wood or plastic material. In contrast, commercial fans are made of more durable materials like steel or aluminum.
  • Better continuous airflow: An industrial or commercial fan operates at a somewhat slower speed than residential fans. This is because they are made to operate for a continuous amount of time, using a more powerful motor. This is especially helpful in spaces like loading docks, warehouses, and other spaces that needed added assistance tp keep them cool.
  • Better comfort for larger spaces: Commercial spaces like offices or restaurants can benefit from the use of a commercial ceiling fan because they can help distribute air throughout a larger area. This improves the comfort of everyone from employees to customers.

The Benefits of Installing a Commercial Ceiling Fan

Installing a commercial-grade ceiling fan in your business space can be a bigger task than expected. It 100% requires a professional to get the job done, often because these fans are much larger than the kinds installed in a residential space. With all that said, when you have any ceiling fan that needs to be installed you should work with a professional who knows how to connect the fan to the electrical system and mount it safely to the ceiling.

When it comes to getting your commercial space outfitted with the appropriate type of commercial ceiling fan, you’ll want to work with an expert who has the tools and experience necessary to get the job done right. That’s exactly what you can expect from our team.
