“In talking with our customers, we realized a tremendous growth opportunity for residential fans,” said Carey Smith, president and CEO, Big Ass Fans. “For over a decade, Big Ass Fans has engineered high-performance air movement solutions for tens of thousands of satisfied industrial customers worldwide. We now have the ability to bring this patented technology to the residential market in Isis - a truly innovative, energy-saving product that really works.”

Due to the company’s reputation for innovation, design and sustainability, it ultimately decided to enter the residential market as a direct response to customer demand for quality, high-end residential product.
“Our customers have asked for this, and we have responded,” said Smith. “We’ve expanded our business model and created a Big Ass Fans sales team dedicated to promoting Isis residential. We’re rolling out new selling tools, including literature, brochures, sell sheets and consumer facing Web content.”

The initiative will kickoff with a new consumer and trade print campaign. The newspaper advertisements will debut in May 2010 in Los Angeles Times, Dallas Morning News and West Palm Beach Post, among others. The magazine advertisements will be introduced starting in May 2010 in Elle Décor, Azure, Architectural Record, Interior Design, New York Spaces, and other architecture, design, home and garden, and luxury regional publications.
Residential Isis Ceiling Mount Fan
Isis is a versatile, slim, contemporarily designed ceiling-mount fan that delivers consistent energy-efficient comfort year-round. The fan was originally designed for commercial spaces, but is now available for residential properties. Isis comes in a standard aluminum finish, but is also available in chestnut, black, white and silver, or can be color-customized to match interior décor.
Isis is engineered, precision-balanced and hand-built with aircraft-grade aluminum and industrial components. It is driven by a proprietary prime mover and improves circulation in large spaces like foyers, lofts and great rooms. Its sweeping airfoil blades, shaped like aircraft wings, revolve slowly and quietly to produce gentle, yet powerful currents of air.
Isis provides a cost-effective method of controlling energy costs through improved circulation. One eight-foot Isis fan covers more area than nine small ceiling fans, while using only one third of the energy of one standard fan. Weighing less than 100 pounds, Isis can be installed in spaces with ceilings as low as 12 feet. A hybrid of advanced engineering and industrial performance, Isis carries a limited lifetime warranty.
