Without proper ventilation and airflow, some environments can become unpleasant or even downright dangerous. But, air conditioners are expensive to install. It’s even impossible to use air conditioners in some settings. Industrial fans can be used instead to offer the same benefits air conditioning does, without the higher cost.
There are some jobs that just stink. Odors in the air are impossible to avoid in some occupations. Who wants to smell gas, hot metal, or their coworkers’ sweat all day? No one. Fans help move the scents away and save employees’ noses from the olfactory horrors they might otherwise have to deal with.
Bad smells aren’t the only thing lurking in the air. Particles float through the air like dandelion fluff. But, unlike dandelion fluff, there’s nothing pleasant about these particles. Some are allergens that can give workers watery eyes and a runny nose. It’s hard to be productive with distracting symptoms like that. Other particles are potentially dangerous products of the work that’s being done. Metal shavings, ash, and other small particles shouldn’t be breathed in. Fans help blow these particles away from the workspace, keeping them out of workers’ lungs.
Air drying is a slow process, but a fan can speed the process up. Powerful industrial fans can cut the drying time of materials and surfaces substantially. Wet floors, freshly cleaned cloths, and sweaty workers can all be dried out quickly with a fan.
Fans can also help dry out the air. Excess moisture is blown away, reducing humidity and making places like spas easier to work in.
Working in a humid environment is awful, but working in a hot environment is just as bad, if not worse. Heat stroke and dehydration from sweating are serious problems workers can face, especially in physical labor jobs. But, a fan can keep employees cool and prevent them from overheating.
Cool, fresh air is practically a necessity for people. Conditions that are too hot can cause serious conditions like heat stroke. High humidity feels disgusting and is a huge distraction. Particles in the air can trigger allergies and cause illnesses. Odors are unpleasant and mostly harmless but can cause headaches in workers who are already prone to headaches. Industrial fans can fix all these problems by blowing away dirty, smelly, humid, and hot air and bringing in fresh air. Not only is fresh air good for employees’ health, but it’s refreshing and invigorating to breathe in clean, fresh air.
