It has been proven that the benefits of investing in an HVLS fan, such as greater productivity, employee morale, and workplace safety, outweigh the associated cost. In spite of this, front-end costs of purchase and installation do add up and can appear daunting. These costs may include:
- Electrical work
- Install location preparation
- Equipment rentals
- Installation labor
With the right supplier, it is possible to keep front-end costs to a minimum. One way to reduce them is by ensuring you are getting the best deal on installation. Hunter Industrial has taken the value of low-cost installation to heart and designed a fan that is lightweight, has minimal components, and requires less professional intervention to complete installation.
With any industrial grade equipment, the size and weight of the device is expected to be greater than your average home counterpart. However, these expectations do not have to be the reason for a more expensive installation. Hunter’s airfoil blades are designed to be lifted by a single person and need only two fasteners to secure them. This is up to six times fewer fasteners than some HVLS fan manufacturers. Additionally, many HVLS fan motors are so heavy a forklift is needed to move them. This leads to more equipment, more time, and more labor contributing to a more costly installation. Hunter’s motors can weigh up to 100 lbs. less than others and can be lifted by a single person. Each of these things reduces installation time, equipment, and the requirement for professional installers. Our development of one of the most lightweight fans available is just one way that Hunter helps to bring down the cost of putting your HVLS fan up.
In addition to lightweight components, Hunter also pre-assembles many of the parts to our HVLS fans. With fewer small parts to assemble, there is less time involved in your installation process, and not only this, there is also less room for error during installation. Additionally, fewer small parts to assemble also leads to fewer tools required for installation. Our Hunter fans can be assembled with only nine tools which most manufacturers have on hand. What does this mean for your bottom line? With less complexity, you are more likely to be able to manage installation without professional help. Our friends from Girl Gang Garage are a prime example.
Outside of the physical work of installation, understanding how the electrical system works is also something that often requires outside help. Not so with Hunter HVLS fans. Once again, the forethought put into reducing installation fees allowed us to pull together a wiring system that only requires you to insert the plug into the receptacle. So, if you find yourself in a position without an electrician — no problem! Once you have finished installing your HVLS fan, our plug and play technology makes fan operation simple. Plug in the fan, flip the switch, and you are ready to roll.
In essence, all of these attributes are lowering the potential cost for installation, making it possible for one non-professional person to complete the install. With the high front-end costs removed from the financial equation, an HVLS fan’s ROI becomes more beneficial and accessible. Too good to be true?
