How Horse Barn Owners and Managers Can Supplement Natural Barn Ventilation Systems With HVLS Fans

MacroAir Technologies, manufacturers of HVLS barn fans, publishes a white paper that explains how to lower barn heating and cooling costs while improving horse health.

MacroAir Technologies, Inc., manufacturers of HVLS (High Volume, Low Speed) horse barn fans, has published its newest white paper, "Horse Barn Ventilation Systems: How HVLS Fans Maintain Uniform Temperatures." The white paper can be downloaded from the MacroAir Website at

The free white paper explains why indoor air quality is important for horses, especially since experts cite poor air quality as one of the leading causes of decreased performance, illness and death in the horse population. In addition, readers will learn how HVLS fans supplement natural horse barn ventilation systems, significantly improve air quality, and maintain uniform temperatures -while helping to improve overall horse health.     

One HVLS fan, when used in conjunction with a natural barn ventilation system, can replace 50 box fans and cool down 20,000 square feet of space without requiring additional power to operate. In addition, barn owners and managers can realize a 30% return of heating energy dollars as HVLS fans can be run in reverse in order to move warm air down to the floor where it's needed most during winter months.

"Natural horse barn ventilation systems are ideal for horses," says Eddie Boyd, President of MacroAir Technologies. "Horses, like people, need continuous fresh air, especially in the barn where gasses can build up due to urine and manure and pathogens from mold and grasses fill the air. HVLS fans supplement these systems by continuously mixing fresh air with stale air. They've been proven in the dairy industry where they help increase milk production by keeping cattle cool. Due to their size and efficiency, HVLS fans significantly reduce energy costs. They also lower temperatures in summer and provide heat destratification in the winter."

Although the slow movement of HVLS fans is deceptive, due to their large diameter (the smallest HVLS fan is eight feet in diameter), HVLS fans move a large column of air down and out 360 degrees. This large column of air cools barn interiors much more efficiently than smaller, high-speed box fans.
