Heavy commercial and industrial facilities get extremely hot and proper ventilation is required to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the facility. This helps keep your employees happy and your equipment running smoothly. Powered exhaust fans on the roof are usually not the best way to do this.

Many plant owners don’t realize how much time and money they are wasting with powered ventilation. They may not stop and consider that they are replacing several fans each year or that each of the dozens of 5 HP exhaust fans cost about $2,500 a year to operate. With day-to-day operations, and putting out one fire after another, it can be easy to overlook. However, when all of that time and money is added, the costs can be substantial.

That is why we created the Moffitt Cost Calculator. This easy-to-use program will show you exactly how much you could be saving by switching to a natural ventilation system. Enter the air-flow rate that you are trying to achieve in your building (in CFM) to see the price difference between a natural ventilator and a powered fan. It’s just that easy.

You may be surprised to see that a natural ventilator is often less expensive than powered fans. Depending on your ventilation requirements a natural ventilator, like the MatrixVent, can be more affordable than a series of exhaust fans.

Over the long run is when a natural ventilator really proves its value. The Cost Calculator will show the lifetime costs of each option and the difference between them. The only way to find a fan’s actual cost is by including the cost of all the energy it will consume throughout its lifetime.

Furthermore, while the energy cost of one fan may seem insignificant to a big plant, the costs of 20, 50, or 100 fans, can really add up.

This total also includes the lifetime maintenance costs. As more and more belts need to be tightened, and as more and more fans need to be replaced, fans take more and more time and money that could be spent elsewhere. The costs of maintenance and repair cannot be overlooked.

Of course, a natural ventilator, once purchased and installed, has no more costs. It requires no maintenance and uses no electricity. It also has an expectant lifespan of more than 20 years. This means that it should operate without incident for an exceedingly long time.
