What to Look for in a Quote

Selecting the right high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fans for your facility involves more than just comparing HVLS fan costs. To make an informed decision that ensures optimal value and performance, it’s crucial to look beyond the numbers. A detailed quote for HVLS fans will include a site survey, expert recommendations, a customized facility plan, competitive pricing, and an attention to detail that creates trust with your chosen supplier. We’ll walk you through the specifics in this fan buying guide.

A Detailed Site Survey

A site survey is a thorough assessment of your facility to gather information critical to planning the placement, sizing, and installation of your new HVLS fans. When conducted as part of the quoting process, a site survey ensures accurate dimensioning, provides insights into existing environmental factors, and accounts for current infrastructure and utilities.

At VividAir, our team of air scientists includes installation experts who will perform a complete site survey with minimal disruption to your daily operations. We’ll blend the data from the facility drawings you supply with our own expert insights gathered during an on-site facility tour to create a detailed site survey to use in our project planning activities.

An Informed Expert Recommendation

HVLS fans are an innovative way to keep your employees cool, but unlocking their full benefits in your facility requires expert sizing and placement. Consider the experience level of the companies and representatives providing HVLS fan quotes. Have they worked on projects similar to yours? Can they provide case studies or recommendations from other satisfied customers?

The VividAir team utilizes decades of industry expertise to create our HVLS fan recommendations. We don’t do one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, we tailor our proposals to match the specific needs of your facility. Our expert installers consider and plan for the mechanics of the installation to ensure a smooth and efficient process. This careful planning provides a value beyond just HVLS and industrial fan cost- it maximizes the benefits of your chosen solution.

A Customized Facility Plan

Every facility has its own unique characteristics. A thoughtful facility plan will consider details such as:

· the layout of lighting grids to minimize strobe effects and shadows,
· strategic exhaust placement,
· sunlight exposure and site climate conditions, and
· how employees utilize different parts of the facility.

The VividAir approach to fan placement optimizes performance. Our sizing recommendations are designed to maximize efficiency: through careful sizing and placement, you might discover that fewer fans are required compared to proposals from competitors.

Attention to Detail

The level of detail provided in a quote for HVLS fans reflects the professionalism, accuracy, and commitment of the supplier. You should expect to receive fan specifications optimized for your facility, including quantities, sizes, and placement details. Pricing should include HVLS fan costs, installation costs, and warranty information. You can expect an estimated installation timeline, and details about how to communicate with your supplier’s project planning and customer service teams.

The VividAir team is well known for their exceptional attention to detail. From ensuring the quality of the HVLS fans we manufacture, to planning for installation in even the most challenging facilities, to communicating the best practices for maintenance- we share our expertise with you.
