Keeping an office space cool and keeping a warehouse cool are very different. There is a lot more space for heat to come in and for cool air to escape.
It is also essential to make sure that your warehouse is adequately insulated. Not only is this an advantage to keep cold air in, but it also helps to keep cold air out during the winter.
Once you are confident that your warehouse is adequately insulated, you can start looking at airflow without worrying about wasting energy and money.
An air conditioning unit doesn’t always do the trick, especially in a large warehouse where air flow is limited. If air conditioning isn’t cutting it, ceiling fans can help with the air flow. However, the higher your warehouse ceiling is, the less effective the fans will be.
If you have large ceilings, you can consider using fans with high volume and low speed. These fans will increase ventilation and can cover up to 20,000 square feet with a 24-inch fan.
SkyBlade fans cover from 11,300 square feet to 45,000 square feet and have an operating cost of about a dollar a day. Their fans also help during the winter by minimizing the temperature in the room and mixing the air.
Another solution can be industrial fans for areas that aren’t getting any cold air. This includes areas with lots of workers or machines.
Industrial fans from Northern Tool and Equipment can keep your warehouse cool without all the noise due to their belt-drive motors and low vibration levels. They also have rubber wheels so you can easily transport the fan to areas of the warehouse that need the most attention.
Take a look at the machinery in your warehouse. Running machines all day long can increase the temperature, so keep things efficient and only have machines running when they need to be running.
