WHY USE WALL MOUNTED FANS?
Keep spaces cool without taking up floor space.
Wall mounted fans come in a range of sizes and styles. You can find small fans that cool a single room and larger fans that keep the air moving across your factory floor. Here are some good reasons to consider wall-mounted fans as part of your cooling system.
King’s WFO line of wall mounted fans are outdoor rated for wet locations and offers 3 fan speeds. High speed produces a strong breeze, but can be noisy for certain sensitive environments, so in a residential or restaurant setting, choosing the low or medium speed can be a game-changer for quiet operation.
Wall fans don’t take up any floor space. That makes them ideal for spaces where you need to move freely, like gyms, garages, or workshops.
EXCELLENT AIR CIRCULATION
While ceiling fans push air down, wall mounted fans push air through space. You can send cooling breezes in one direction or direct the fan with the oscillating feature across a wider area. Wall fans are excellent at moving cool air through rooms and removing warm air.
STAY COOL OUTDOORS
Wall-mounted fans are a good choice for outdoor patios and decks and can help keep bugs away. Consider adding an optional misting kit to your wall-mounted fan, to disperse a cool water mist while they circulate air.
GREAT FOR GREENHOUSES
Plants in greenhouses and grow rooms need regular air circulation. The air helps maintain even temperatures, provide ventilation and prevent plant rot.
WHAT SIZE WALL FAN DO I NEED?
The size of your wall fan is the most important thing to consider. In a large room, consider adding two fans on adjoining walls. You’ll get circulation and cross-ventilation.
Determining the size fan you need doesn’t have to be complicated. Knowing the size of your space and a quick look at airflow in cubic feet per minute (CFM) and is all you need.
If you want to be more specific, you can calculate the volume of your space (L x W x H) and then divide that number by the maximum CFM for the fan. This will give you the number of air changes per hour (ACH).
If you know how many ACH you want, you can multiply the volume of your space by that number, and divide by 60 to find the CFM needed to achieve it.
Example: 450 sq. ft x 8 ft. ceilings = 3,600 cu. ft.
3,600 cu. ft. x 6 (ACH) = 21,600
21,600 / 60 minutes = 360 CFM
