This industrial manufacturing customer already had an HVLS fan to help de-stratify the air in summer and winter months along with exhaust fans and louvers in the building. However, the systems did not work together.
iFAN allows the customer to synchronize the HVLS fans with the other air-movement equipment (exhaust fans, louvers and intake fans). iFAN is set up to monitor the temperatures inside the building and outside the building and determine whether to bring air in or exhaust air out depending on time of year. This helps the customer maintain a comfortable temperature in the building all year. The fans were also programmed to speed up or down and change direction depending on the exhaust fans bringing air in or pushing air out of the facility.
