Keeping your livestock happy and healthy is key to good production. In addition to proper feeding and access to water, animals need fresh air at all times to promote optimal growth and help prevent disease.
Air quality in barns and other indoor agricultural environments can become compromised in many ways:
HVLS fans are an ideal solution for all of these air circulation issues. An HVLS fan is designed to create slow-moving columns of air to gently and effectively ventilate large spaces and diffuse stratified layers of air. Their evaporative cooling effect helps to reduce moisture levels in the air and keep livestock comfortable so they are less likely to suffer the devastating effects of heat stress. Unlike low-volume, high-speed (LVHS) fans, HVLS fans don’t blow things around. They operate quietly even on startup, to provide your livestock the calm, low-stress environment they need for optimal health and productivity.
Lower vet bills and higher livestock productivity aren’t the only ways HVLS agricultural fans can help to improve your bottom line. They can also help save you money on energy bills.
Compared with an LVHS fan, a VividAir HVLS fan uses 80 percent less power to ventilate your barn or other building. Because it can move so much more air, one HVLS fan can do the job of multiple LVHS fans. And it can do so with extreme energy efficiency: Even our largest fan (24 feet) runs on only 3.15 amps.
VividAir has been manufacturing HVLS agricultural fans for over a decade, and our staff collectively has more than 75 years of experience in helping our customers find the ideal fan solutions for their applications. If you are looking for a high-quality agricultural ventilation fan, consider the following options:
All of our HVLS fans can be installed in tandem for greater coverage and are fully compatible with building automation systems.
