With climate warming a reality, this summer promises to be warmer than ever. Fourteen of the 15 hottest years on record have occurred since 2000, as heat waves have become more frequent, more intense and longer lasting.
Quality Barn Fans
Keep your livestock healthy and yourself comfortable during these periods of record heat. A good cooling system starts with quality barn fans that can cool the barn up to ten degrees. Also consider water misters in dryer climates where the evaporation of mist will cool the area another several degrees.
Barn fans serve the additional purpose of keeping air circulating and removing harmful hay dust and pollen. Airborne dust and pollen can negatively affect your animals as well as own.
Barn Wall Fans
Wall fans provide a sideways air flow and can be directed on the animals to help control flying insects. Wall fans can be set to sweep back and forth thus covering more space.
A strong wall fan can keep several animals cool and free of flies, not to mention the comfort of farm hands working in the barn.
Large ceiling fans generate high levels of more indirect air flow and assist in keeping the air flowing throughout the barn. These fans can also be reversed in winter to direct rising warm air back down to the animals.
Floor fans have the advantage of being portable and can be moved to different areas of the barn as needed. As with wall fans, floor fans can be set to sweep back and forth to cover larger areas.
Flying insects are reduced considerably when there is a strong breeze generated by your fans blowing fresh air throughout the barn. A barn with an inhospitable flying insect environment can cut bugs by 80%.
Misting fans add another dimension to fan cooling by providing the cooling effect of water evaporating in the air and on the animal's body.
