Keep Your Cool
If keeping things cold helps you to keep your cool, then you should consider ZOO fans. These small, quiet, energy-efficient fans, are specially designed to improve circulation and eliminate problem areas by creating even temperatures from floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall, in open areas, around machinery, in racking, in coolers, and on loading docks.
Often used to noticeably improve comfort in the Zone Of Occupancy (ZOO)—down on the floor, where most people live and work—ZOO fans are equally adept at keeping product “comfortable.”
Even temperatures and humidity, improved and consistent shelf life, and reduced spoilage, simply by improving air circulation and eliminating uneven conditions. Which helps you to keep your cool, and…
Keep More Cold Cash
In addition to product savings, operating costs can be reduced in several ways. Facilities cool for the warmest spots, which are often located in the corners below where the evaporative coolers are installed in the wall. These expensive-to-operate coolers and multi-horsepower blowers must run longer than necessary to ensure that these hard-to-reach locations remain at the same temperature.
Shift the task of air circulation to ZOO fans and let these small, energy-efficient, fractional horsepower fans mix the air more thoroughly and effectively at a lower cost. With even temperatures from floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall, thermostats are satisfied more quickly and problem areas are eliminated. Thus reducing overall operating cost. Use the coolers and blowers to introduce conditioned air, not to circulate it!
Equipment that runs less frequently will also require lower maintenance and have a longer service life.
And with AC, it’s likely that the juice you’re saving is electricity, not natural gas. That means that even savings of 10-15% deliver a very fast ROI. That’s a great return on keeping produce cold and hard cash in the pocket.
Reduce Condensation, Stay Dry
The negative effects of condensation and wet floors cost commercial and industrial facilities billions of dollars each year from slip and falls, damage to inventory, lift truck accidents, mold, and, in more severe cases, facility downtime. Problems range from localized areas like a wet floor under an evaporative cooler, or on equipment, or a traffic area by a door, to much bigger problems like wide area sweating slab syndrome.
ZOO Fans can help to eliminate these problems through a range of solutions. For more localized condensation problems, simply aim ZOO Fans at the problem area—humidity will disperse, relative due points will shift and condensation will be significantly reduced if not eliminated entirely. Targeted air circulation does wonders for these kinds of problems.
For broader areas, more fans and a smart control system tied to your existing HVAC systems can solve sweating floors and dripping condensation. Don’t sweat it—just give us a call!
ZOO Fans ensure that air reaches all the corners and aisles, and maintain the consistent conditions needed to eliminate trouble spots. And by hanging ZOO Fans from the ceiling or wall, or even overhead conveyor systems, they’re out of the way.
