Press Release Summary:
Measuring 9-15 ft in diameter, AltAir(TM) HVLS (High Volume - Low Speed) fans are used for cooling, heat de-stratification, and ventilation in large facilities. Products employ Variable Pitch Technology, Rotatair(TM) composite blades, and variable frequency drive capability. Adjusting blade pitch 0Â°-20Â° up or down, coupled with varying fan speed, promotes total control over air movement. When 3 or more fans are arranged in one array, they allow for complete air movement.

Start-Up Introduces Revolutionary High Volume - Low Speed Fan to Solve Large Facility Air Movement and Energy Efficiency Problems
Holliston MA - January 17, 2008 - Peter Caruso, founder and CEO of AirMotion Sciences, Inc., announces the market launch of AirMotion's brand new line of AltAir(TM) HVLS fans (Patent Pending). These large High Volume - Low Speed (HVLS) industrial ceiling fans are 9 to 15 feet in diameter, have small, highly energy efficient motors, and are used for cooling, heat de-stratification, ventilation, and as alternatives to air conditioning in large facilities. AltAir HVLS fans reduce energy costs and environmental stress, while enhancing comfort and productivity.
Mr. Caruso, the former President and CEO of MacroAir Technologies LLC, says his company will market, sell and distribute AirMotion AltAir HVLS fans throughout the US and abroad. "My goal from the outset was to design a better HVLS fan, and we are excited to finally introduce the next generation of product development to the market," he says. "Having learned a lot about this relatively new and exciting product category, I have been fortunate to assemble a brilliant engineering team to help us make a big leap forward in air movement technology. Our mission is to bring products that significantly reduce large facility energy costs while enhancing comfort and productivity inside these facilities. Through innovation, experience, and know-how we plan to be leaders in the industry bringing the best in design, production, and service to our customers."
The revolutionary AltAir fan design and technology, namely the Variable Pitch Technology (VPT(TM)), Rotatair(TM) composite blades, and a carefully engineered application of VFD (variable frequency drive) capability, all significantly advance the functionality of HVLS fans. By adjusting the blade pitch 0 to 20 degrees up or down, coupled with varying fan speed, users have better control over the air they move - a feature AirMotion calls, Adjustable Air Movement. When three or more AltAir HVLS fans are arranged in an array, they allow for Complete Facility Movement of Air, a capability exclusive to AirMotion Sciences.
"Though highly sophisticated, AirMotion AltAir HVLS fans are simple to install, operate and maintain. Our VPT capability allows enormous flexibility at one's fingertips in how and where air can be moved within a facility to provide comfort and reduce energy usage," says Joe Madsen, AirMotions's VP of Engineering. Emphasizing energy cost savings, improved productivity, and green benefits, the AltAir HVLS fans are the culmination of Mr. Caruso's knowledge of HVLS fan technology, understanding of industry needs, and the skills of a highly qualified engineering team led by Mr. Madsen.
Looking forward to the growth of AirMotion Sciences, Inc. and the market penetration of AltAir HVLS fans, Mr. Caruso states, "We are excited about the possibilities. We think that in working together with our customers we can all do well while also doing good. By bringing the next generation of HVLS fans to market, followed by other product innovations, we hope we will leave the world a better place for future generations." With energy savings, rapid payback, and green initiatives at the foundation of the company, AirMotion Sciences, Inc. benefits its customers as well as the environment at large.
