Big Ass Fan Company, contributing to the country's growing movement towards sustainability, has found itself in a position to move air in an unlikely venue, a Brooklyn Catholic Church.
Typically, 200 parishioners travel to the almost century-old Our Lady of Refuge Church for the popular 11:30 a.m. mass each Sunday. The New York summer heat has discouraged congregation members, cutting the attendance in half. The parish employed the services of Big Ass Fans as a cooling solution to their heat-related absenteeism. Just one of approximately 50 churches nationwide that have purchased Big Ass Fans, Our Lady of Refuge will use a 24 ft. diameter PowerfoilPlus model to keep its congregation comfortable for years to come.
Since its inception, Big Ass Fans found its product primarily circulating in industrial and agricultural settings. In recent years, many other unexpected venues like churches, restaurants and offices have discovered the benefits of Big Ass Fans. Using only 1-2 hp motors, Big Ass Fans are inherently energy efficient to operate. To meet the needs of our growing customer base, the all-new Element was designed with functionality better suited to commercial settings. Combining its distinctive appearance with its high-performance operation, the new Element fan serves a wide range of applications. Los Angeles-based art gallery, Pharmaka, called on Big Ass Fans to provide an air movement solution that not only matched the sleek design of the spot, but also offered a sustainable benefit to the space. The silent, stylish Element will be featured on Planet Green's environmentally focused program, Alter-Eco, on September 8th.
