Big Ass Fans Element

Element by Big Ass Fans vs. MacroAir AVD 3

Why an HVLS fan?

If you are looking for comfort solutions for classrooms, office spaces restaurants, fitness centers, or other commercial spaces, you might find an HVLS fan to be the perfect solution. Let’s directly compare competing models, Big Ass Fans’ Element to EnergyLogic’s MacroAir AVD3.

Where was HVLS started?

The HVLS (High-volume, Low-speed) fan solution was invented out of a need to cool dairy cattle. By cooling the cattle, the herd is able to produce more milk. MacroAir invented the very first HVLS fan to meet these needs and has since expanded globally to me the needs of many warehouses, public spaces, and commercial establishments.

Here are a few things to consider when making your HVLS Fan purchase:

How good is the warranty?

Big Ass Fans’ Element fan comes with a 10-year warranty on parts if you pay extra to have their factory install. If you chose to use your own installer or do your own installation to save on costs, the warranty will only cover 5 years. The MacroAir AVD3, on the other hand, offers the best warranty in the industry with a 50,000-hour runtime, no matter who installs the fan.

Who installs my fan?

The MacroAir AVD3 is easy to install and supports third party or DIY installation while still offering a full warranty. The knowledgeable team at EnergyLogic can help with any questions you may have, including arranging installation. Instead of supporting your installation the way you would like to conduct it, Big Ass Fans’ Element makes you spend extra for the factory install or cuts your warranty in half.

Isn’t ten fancy blades better than three?

Nope. Eliminating blades while maximizing motor efficiency technology reduces the weight, wear-and-tear, and energy costs per CFM produced by the MacroAir AVD3. Having winglets like those featured on the Big Ass Fans Element can also increase torque on the fan, decreasing the life of the fan. EnergyLogic’s MacroAir AVD3 gets the job done better for less, period.
