The implementation of fans is a cost-effective, repeatable way to dramatically improve occupant thermal comfort. However, the use of personal cooling fans has historically been associated with auditory discomfort. Big Ass Fans’ AirEye product line has been designed to operate at low sound levels in order to ensure that thermally comfortable environments are also sonically suitable. Cumulative fan sound levels should be considered in addition to thermal comfort results for applications with large fan quantities. This white paper summarizes the findings of an in-depth pilot project completed at a 1MM+ square-foot fulfillment center in the Pacific Northwest that was implemented across more than 50 similar facilities nationwide.
