ADEX Awards Call For Entries 2020-21
The Essence ceiling fan from Big Ass Fans is both an essential money-saving machine and a work of art.

In air-conditioned spaces such as schools, worship facilities, offices and restaurants, comfort is rarely easy – or affordable – to achieve. In most commercial settings, conventional ceiling fans are often outmatched by tall ceilings and open floor plans. They simply can’t move enough air to create comfort.

Our engineers set out to create a ceiling fan that could. Their goal was to develop a ceiling fan for air-conditioned spaces that, while lightweight, stylish and silent, also provided effective air movement. They replaced the traditional, geared motor with a maintenance-free, permanent magnet drive, eliminating noise and potential oil leaks; then they added electronic controls to further reduce noise.

The result was Essence.


Essence does the work of 28 standard ceiling fans at just one-seventh of the operating cost. Available in 8- to 14-ft. diameters, Essence is part of the world’s first and only line of ceiling fans designed for air-conditioned spaces. Essence can shave up to 30% off a facility’s heating and cooling costs, and its silent motor offers supreme comfort without a sound.
