About Our Smoke Test

Our smoke test is the best visual product demonstration we can offer. By placing a fan at its intended height and filling the ceiling with smoke, you can see that we’re capable of delivering a concentrated jet of air all the way to the floor, illustrated as plain as day!

What’s important to note when viewing a smoke test is that destratification¬†only occurs when the air hits the ground with enough force to “mushroom” out. The torus-shaped profile of air movement mixes the air evenly throughout a room. A fan that cannot reach the floor, like a lower power fan in a high bay space, only destratifies in the area where the smoke physically touches, and that can be 20 or 30 feet above the ground![1]

HVLS fans destratify through brute force and the excessive airflow they provide can have a negative impact on comfort. Yes, the space is destratified, but air velocity is so high they can cause a chilling effect. If slowed to reduce wind chill, then the fans are not providing full ceiling to floor mixing.
