Join us for a detailed look at our proprietary Speclab software, the science behind thermal comfort and fans, as well as case studies of increasing energy savings up to 30% through the integration of Big Ass Fans in building design.

SpecLab uses CFD and proprietary airflow data to model complex facilities—complete with interior walls and other building elements that impact airflow—and run precise simulations of our fans’ performance. Coupled with a free facility inspection by our airflow experts, SpecLab ensures the perfect recommendation for the size, number, and placement of the Big Ass fans in your space.

Only Big Ass Fans offers groundbreaking SpecLab software, a cloud-based, comprehensive configurator that allows you to work side-by-side with our experts to specify airflow solutions. Using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and your building’s unique layout, SpecLab creates a full 3D simulation of our fans in your space, letting you see our recommendations in a level of detail never before possible.

  • Visualize and quantify Big Ass fans’ impact on personal comfort
  • Evaluate fan performance in a 3D simulation of your space
  • Fast-track project approvals with a data-backed airflow analysis
  • Test airflow and efficiency for new construction and retrofit projects

Property managers and owners can reduce or maintain their costs by measuring indoor air airflow and modeling the building's energy savings. There are ways to integrate software modeling systems with existing systems to create a more comfortable and sustainable solution for indoor spaces, creating a symbiosis of technology. This session will address sustainability from a quantifiable perspective to save on your bottom line, increase indoor comfort, and be green. The speaker will address how to test airflow and efficiency for retrofit projects, evaluate our fans' performance in a 3D simulation for each case and calculate savings, explore how you can facilitate or fast-track project approvals with a data-backed airflow analysis, and more. Join us and learn how we visualize and quantify the impact on personal comfort through some real-life examples.
