Industrial Fan Complete Buyer's Guide: Everything You Need to Know

Industrial fans are essential for keeping air flowing through large industrial facilities, but with so many options available, it can be difficult to know which one is best suited for your space. In this guide, we'll take you through the different types of industrial fans available, the pros and cons of each, and what you need to know about industrial fan costs, electricity costs, and noise.

Types of Industrial Fans

Industrial Floor Fan

Industrial floor fans are free-standing and can be easily moved around to direct air where it's needed. They're relatively inexpensive and require no installation. However, they take up floor space and can be noisy, which can be distracting for workers.

Industrial Pedestal Fan

Pedestal fans have a heavy base to keep them stable and their height and direction can be adjusted. They can be useful for increasing airflow and dispersing cool air throughout a

space. However, like floor fans, they can be noisy and take up floor space.

Industrial Wall Mount Fan

Industrial wall mount fans are secured to the wall, conserving ground space. They move large volumes of air and can be directed toward different areas. However, they're not as adjustable as floor or pedestal fans.

Industrial Drum Fan

Industrial drum fans are free-standing and use high-speed, high-volume power to move air quickly. They're great for ventilating large spaces but can be very loud, posing a safety hazard.

8-24 Ft Large Industrial Ceiling Fans

Large industrial ceiling fans conserve floor space and eliminate tripping hazards. They work by creating air movement from ceiling to floor, which increases circulation, controls humidity, and conserves heat in colder months. HVLS ceiling fans are very energy-efficient and generate minimal noise.

Industrial Fan Costs and Electricity Costs

The size of the fan is the most significant factor in determining the price of an industrial fan. Smaller fans will be less expensive but may not be as effective as larger fans. A complete industrial ceiling fan purchase usually includes a motor unit, blades, motor control panel, motor control cable, remote cable, and remote. The price can vary depending on the manufacturer, model, and features. The cost of electricity to run the fan will depend on how often you use it and how large the blades and motor are.

Industrial Fan Noise

Noise levels can be an issue in industrial facilities. While many industrial fans are noisy, HVLS fans are designed to create airflow without generating much noise. At MacroAir, we take noise prevention seriously and have designed our industrial HVLS fans to be as quiet as possible.
