Let's move some air!
The UC Hopland Research & Extension Center has been blessed with several in-kind donations of products to assist the completion of the Rod Shippey Educational & Field lab Facility. As part of a energy-efficient HVAC (heating and Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system there is a very large fan that plays a key role in air movement within the large "multipurpose room" or "Extension Hall".
This large fan is actually manufactured by the Big Ass Fan Company located in Kentucky. It has a 12 foot wide diameter, and moves air subtly, efficiently, and quietly. The company first built fans for large open horse-arenas .... hence the name... but they now make many, many sizes and styles of fans. The company generously donated this fan to the cause ... which really helps to stretch the budget dollars even further.
