As most of us spend a third of our day at work, it goes without saying that we would all prefer to be comfortable in the workplace. Being comfortable includes both physical and emotional comfort. There is a large variety of factors that go into making someone physically and emotionally at ease. Here at Misso Electric, we strive to help our customers be more at ease and offer a variety of services that can help us accomplish our goal. One of these services is installing ceiling fans. After all, it is not uncommon for large, open facilities such as warehouses, barns, and aviation hangars to battle undesirable climates. These work environments as well as more enclosed office cubicle spaces, garages, factories and more can quickly become uncomfortable for employees, sometimes too hot, other times too cold, and also are often the cause of extraneous expenses for your company. Today Misso Electric is going to highlight some of the benefits of installing ceiling fans in your workplace.
Ceiling Fans Really Do Save Energy
Commercial and industrial ceiling fans help balance the temperature in your workspace by redistributing the air that typically gets trapped at ceiling level. In the hot summer months, these industrial ceiling fans blanket a massive area, moving air to create an expansive comfort zone with an evaporative cooling effect of up to 10 degrees! While it is true that fans don’t technically cool the air around you, the circulating air encourages evaporation, which can make people feel several degrees cooler. In contrast, during the coldest winters, hot air is pushed back down to ground level where it is needed. In a process known as destratification, your ceiling fan will draw heated air down and mix it with cooler air that settles near the floor. In short, commercial and industrial ceiling fans keep your employees cool, comfortable and working at their peak performance.
Ceiling Fans Can Reduce Cooling & Heating Costs
Let’s start by talking about the energy savings that installing ceiling fans can provide you with. Despite what you may think, ceiling fans do not actually lower the temperature in your room. Ceilings fans keep the air in your room moving which makes you feel cooler. When you feel cooler you are more likely to set your thermostat to a higher temperature. Keeping your thermostat at a higher temperature during the summer months will help you save money on your utility bills. During the winter ceiling fans can also help reduce your utility bills. Most ceiling fans have a setting that allows you to have your blades rotate in the opposite direction. When your ceiling fan runs in the opposite direction it will pull the hot air at the top of the ceiling down into your room. This will help make your room feel warmer.
Get Added Light By Installing a Ceiling Fan
Installing a ceiling fan in a room also gives you the opportunity to add more lighting. Most ceiling fans have lighting mounts on them. If you have a room that is darker than you want it to be, additional lighting will be a major benefit. When you are shopping for your ceiling fans you will want to have an idea of how much light you will want the ceiling fan to give out. Each ceiling fan will produce a unique amount of light depending on the light fixture on it.
Ceiling Fans Can Be Stylish
Years ago there was not a large variety of ceiling fans to choose from. Now there are literally thousands of different options for you to choose from. You can select a ceiling fan that is traditional, minimal, modern, classic, and more. Ceiling fans come in just about every shape, size, and color that you can imagine. The large variety allows you to make any kind of decorative statement you want with your ceiling fans.
