Altra-Air Fans & Heating
In most large buildings, heaters are mounted overhead so as to not interfere with the space. This creates a heat gradient differential of 10 - 20 degrees Fahrenheit from floor to ceiling.
Because heat rises a situation called 'stratification' occurs. The heaters are now heating the top 2/3 of the building, working overtime to force heat down to the floor and at thermostat level.
By thoroughly mixing the air, the Altra-Air fans can virtually eliminate the temperature differential (or de-stratify) between the ceiling and the floor. Thermostat settings can be reduced without any loss of comfort, resulting in a reduction in heating costs.
