Meet Our Experts
Working with Big Ass Fans means access to a dedicated group of behind-the-scenes experts in engineering, architecture and design.
Many assume the process of creating a recommended light or fan layout is standard across companies. It isn’t. The Applications Engineering team at Big Ass Solutions® collects detailed data on your location and makes specific recommendations, taking into account the processes, machinery, equipment and plans for the space. The team then generates professional layouts using the latest drafting software and estimates energy savings for projects.
It’s not a formula that plugs in square footage and average temperature—it’s a complex and customized recommendation. Applications Engineering is an all-star team at Big Ass Fans and Big Ass® Light. With diverse backgrounds and expertise in every aspect of our business, from installation to architecture, they have the training to solve the toughest customer problems.

Brains Behind the Scenes
The other secret behind Big Ass quality is applications testing. Our Research & Development lab is an engineer’s playground and the only facility in the world solely dedicated to testing air movement on a grand scale. The applications engineering team works with the technicians and researchers who develop and test fans and lights to collect and analyzes data from real-world modeling of common applications.
The teams have built full-scale replicas of classrooms, offices, residential rooms and warehouses to perfect airflow and distribution. It may sound intuitive, but many companies don’t go the extra mile—testing and reworking the calculations that drive their applications. It’s just one more step Big Ass Fans takes to ensure our products and services set the standard for quality in the industry.
