Destratification systems are one of the most effective energy reduction technologies available on the market.
–The Carbon Trust
Thermal stratification is a natural occurrence: hot air rises and cold air sinks. Your building’s HVAC systems are engineered to maintain a comfortable temperature on the floor and often overheat to compensate for stratification!
When your heater is running, heat rises and accumulates at the ceiling of your building, increasing the temperature and rate of heat transfer at the roof.
Conversely, cooled air from your air conditioner is heavier and will tend to sink to low points in a building or become trapped in difficult to circulate areas.
How Much Does Stratification Cost Me?
With over 100,000 units sold, we have received reports of reduced energy costs ranging from 20% to 76%. Your savings will come down to a number of factors, including ceiling height, insulation, target temperature, and levels of ambient heat generated by people and processes.
To combat the problem of thermal stratification, Airius offers a range of destratification fans that work in concert to continuously recirculate air throughout your building.
Airius fans are specifically designed to save you money and increase comfort. The fans continuously and gently mix the air, balancing temperatures (destratification) from ceiling to floor and wall to wall which helps the HVAC system maintain the desired temperature. No longer will you overheat or overcool a space, significantly reducing energy costs and dramatically increasing comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Stratification a Big Problem?
The main negative consequence of thermal stratification is that Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems in your building will be working in overdrive to maintain set temperatures at floor levels, costing your organization significant sums of money in performance and lost energy.
There will also be a negative impact on your company’s carbon footprint. Thermal stratification is the single biggest waste of energy in buildings today.
How Soon Will My Building Be Equalized?
The moment the Airius units are switched on in your building, the efficiency of your HVAC system will start to improve. Airius fans reach their full potential for energy savings within 48h.
Why Airius Fans?
For an effective destratification system, you must throw air the full distance from ceiling to floor where the people are and where your thermostat is located. Any fan that comes up short is not providing the needed circulation to maximize your comfort and energy savings.
Old style ceiling fans or a simple tube design will not do and thus all Airius fans feature a unique nozzle design and patented stator system to ensure that a laminar non-turbulent column of air is delivered from ceiling to floor — where we live and work. With any axial fan, there exists a radial component to the air flow causing it to spread laterally and lose velocity when leaving the nozzle. Airius’ patented fixed blade stator sits below the fan to transfer this rotational energy into linear motion exiting the nozzle. Having the airflow energy in line with the fan axis promotes a tight air column and maximizes the throw. In addition to the stator, the slightly tapered nozzle increases the exit speed and allows for the air throw to be maximized even further.
The combination of housing shape, patented stator and energy efficient motors is what makes Airius fans unique in delivering air over long distances using minimal power. With various size models featuring these unique design aspects, Airius has a suitable model for ceilings as low as 8 ft. and as high as 125 ft.
