Though working outside has its perks—such as breathing fresh air, the enjoying nature, soaking in essential vitamin D, getting a tan, and staying in shape, all while making money—there's no denying that it has its downfalls; the biggest of which is severe heat stress. But most of these problems can be resolved using a misting fan at the job site. And that's why there's no need to sweat whether your crew may overheat during the hottest months of the year. Join us below as we explain five advantages of using misting fans for manual labor jobs this summer.
Staying Cool & Productive From landscaping, hardscaping, masonry and roofing to painting, carpentry, construction and paving, industrial high-pressure misting fans are perfect for any type of outdoor work. Because not only do they keep your workers cool, calm, and collected during a time of year when tempers tend to flare and concentration is lost, but they also keep your tools and equipment dry at the same time. This means your crew stays sharp, focused, and productive, helping you to maximize efficiency and improve your bottom line—without damaging valuable resources or risking the safety of your work environment. Trust us; this is an investment you won't regret making!
Perimeter Cooling Though you may be working under the brutal sun, the oscillating motion of misting fans provides perimeter cooling which makes it feel like you're working by the mist of a waterfall. This makes it easier than ever for your crew to put in a hard day's work during the most challenging months of the year: June, July, and August. Along with water and sunscreen, misting fans are essential to staying hydrated and maintaining high energy levels throughout the day—something older generations wish they had. There's simply no better way to avoid the effects of high humidity combined with extreme heat.
Stationary & Portable Options While portable misting fans come with wheels which you can use to safely transport them from one job site to another, stationary models are great for those manual labor jobs where you may work primarily at a single location. Either way, both options are easy to relocate and sturdy enough for any work environment. The exceptional convenience and utility of these models take the extra effort of trying to stay cool and productive out of the equation. By knowing that no matter what the temperature may be or where they may be working, your workers can have confidence in their health and well-being during the summer.
Durable Hardware Since misting fans are weatherproof, rust resistant, and are made with stainless hardware, it's as if they were built exclusively for manual labor jobs. Each model also has a centrifugal mist design that eliminates clogging nozzles, preventing the need for water filtration. Since these fans play an essential role in the efficiency of your crew, you need peace of mind knowing yours won't be affected by the elements. And that's why they provide an excellent level of strength and durability, standing strong for many years to come.
Affordability Misting fans are available in a variety of sizes and pressure levels, including low, mid, and high. They typically range significantly in price from a couple hundred dollars to a couple thousand dollars. However, in each case, you get what you pay for—meaning the price is relative to the performance you require. But no matter which model you choose, you can expect a satisfying return on investment as these products are designed to withstand the elements and curb the distressing impact that extreme heat and humidity have on your workers.
Summary In the end, purchasing a misting fan for your business this summer will help you gain a competitive edge in your industry due to its incredible cooling potential—something your workers will thank you for. Whether you plan on transporting it as you change job sites or keeping it in one location, it will offer a superior level of convenience. In addition, you can count on getting more than your money's worth as you will be able to use it year after year to increase efficiency and maximize profits. But above all, it will show your employees that you truly care about their health and well-being while working, showing respect and encouraging them to put their best effort forth throughout the day.
