Element Fan, Big Ass Fans' New Energy Efficient Fan

Candy Red

You’ve probably seen Big Ass Fans in the gym or in some larger space, and that’s because they’re huge and energy efficient.  Just last week, Big Ass Fans launched their newest product called the Element Fan.  Element uses the 10 airfoil and wiglet design to move air quietly and efficiently.  According to BAF: "At standard speed in a room with 16 ft. high ceilings Element is able to create comfortable breezes over an area larger than a basketball court, all while requiring less than 100 watts to operate. That is considerably less energy than even the most efficient small ceiling fan in production today."  I’ve been around these gargantuan fans and love them.  Seriously, they cool down a large space like nothing I’ve ever seen.  Plus, you can really get creative with the colors, so as far as large fans go, this is a dang good option to go with.
