Big Ass Fans, not for the faint hearted … a BlogTourNYC sponsor

March 12, 2012

The name says it all – Big Ass Fans are serious about ventilation! Today we are featuring them on our blog as they are one of the Blog Tour NYC sponsors.

Big Ass Fans has been making fans for over 30 years and they really understand the technology involved. The air foils on their fans are in effect big wings, they use aircraft technology to cool your environment very efficiently. We have all experienced an old-fashioned highly annoying ceiling fan rotating like crazy – maybe cooling the room but also killing any atmosphere. Big Ass Fans are known for their very quiet operation with a sound level under 40 dBa. Due to the technology they generally operate five times slower than traditional fans – but one Isis fan can do the work of nine standard fans.

Big Ass Fans have a range of fans for many uses including Industrial, Agricultural, Commercial and Residential. The biggest fan, the Powerfoil X has a span of 24 feet, that is over 7 metres wide! If you have an industrial facility that needs cooling this colossal fan would definitely kick the heat into touch.

For the residential market most home owners obviously require something smaller. If you have a larger home with high ceilings the Isis is a good choice. I love the style of the range, too many ceiling fans are still stuck in the last decade without a hint of contemporary design. The combination of aluminium motor housing and walnut air foils would be a perfect choice for today’s modern interior. Isis is available with an 8 ft, 9 ft and 10 ft span.

We aren’t all blessed with expansive interiors so Big Ass have recently launch the Haiku fan, the smaller friend to the Isis. This fan has a width of just 5 ft but includes all the great engineering Big Ass Fans are known for. With a very quiet operation these fans bring the efficiency of the larger models accessible to home owners.

Big Ass Fans mean business, their name shows that and the quality of their fans proves that. Take a look at their website – you might just never look at a ceiling fan in the same way again!

    Thank you for the article! We also retweeted your message. We are quite proud of our new Haiku fan. It is considerably smaller than our other offerings with elegant lines and all that great technology inside.

    I love to have powerful ceiling fans on my home since they are needed for proper ventilation.*
