Tips for Choosing the Best Industrial Ceiling Cooling System

Tips for Choosing the Best Industrial Ceiling Cooling System

Cooling systems are a must-have in any working environment. The most common is the ceiling fan. It must be a daunting task if you are in the market for new industrial ceiling fans. These fans come in various sizes, types and it isn’t easy to know which best suits your needs.

Choosing the best fit for your warehouse is not easy and requires careful consideration and research. Below are four factors that will help you to choose the best new industrial ceiling fans.

  1. Airflow Rate

Airflow rate is the amount of time it takes the fans to circulate air in a room. It is measured in Cubic feet per minute (CFM). It is important as it ensures proper air circulation and prevents the room from getting too hot at a time.

To determine if the air is circulating well, divide the space into cubic feet by the CFM of your fan as suggested by the manufacturing company. Ideally, it should take 5 minutes to circulate air in that space.

  1. Wind Speed

Wind speed is how fast the fan can move air to the ground. It is sometimes included in the CFM of the fan. This is important as it will determine how fast the room cools down.

When looking at the wind speed, consider the working environment. A room with fumes or many machines that heat up requires fast wind speed, and a room with just a few workers will use low speeds. 

  1. Mounting Hardware

Mounting hardware is usually included when purchasing new industrial ceiling fans. It is important to check which mounting hardware is used with the fan and make sure it fits your room.

The most important part of the mounting hardware is the extended rod used to install the fan. Ideally, the fan should not be too low such that it disrupts the workers and should not be too high and close to the ceiling such that there is no proper air circulation.

It is important to consider the size of your room and your ceiling clearance when choosing your mounting hardware. This will help you to make sure the mounting rod is the right length.

  1. Motor

The type of motor used is an important factor for you to consider. Industrial ceiling fans either use an AC or a DC motor. DC motor fans usually use direct current and are connected to a transformer connected to a power source. On the other hand, AC motors connect to the power source directly as they can run on alternate currents to reverse currents from the power source to the fan. Because of this, AC motors consume more power than DC motor fans.

If you are looking to install several new industrial ceiling fans and power is of concern to you, you could choose to go with DC motor fans. If power is not your main concern, then other factors may precede this one.


There are many factors to consider when purchasing new industrial ceiling fans, but the most important is to make sure there is good air circulation. A good fan should prevent the room from heating and keep it in a good working environment. However, you should note that a fan is not a replacement for air conditioning but rather a means to keep the room cool.
