Project Summary

Texas Equine Hospital is renowned in the horse industry for its track record of quickly and accurately diagnosing health problems. The Bryan, Texas, facility examines nearly 60 horses daily, most under a 14-ft (4.3m) outdoor metal structure. But with temperatures regularly approaching 105°F (40.6°C), the process becomes taxing for both human and horse. “The heat that radiates off our shed makes it hotter than blazes,” said Dr. Cliff Honnas, owner. “The horses overheat, and it just makes work miserable.”

To combat the sweltering conditions, Big Ass Fans® installed four Powerfoil®X2.0 fans throughout the facility. Sized at 18-ft (5.5m) and 14-ft (4.3m), the fans circulate the stagnant air and provide cooling breezes that “make a 15-degree difference,” said Dr. Honnas. Not only did the Big Ass Fans make the clinical environment safer, they eliminated dozens of inefficient box fans that required constant maintenance. “Our old fans were such a pain,” said Dr. Honnas. “I get 10 times more airflow with our Big Ass Fans. They’ve made an enormous difference.”
