See ZOO Fans in Action!
The thermal images in this video are from a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) computer model of a model H30 ZOO Fan mounted one foot below the flat ceiling of a 40’ x 40’ x 25’ high space with a ceiling-mounted heat source and a thermostat affixed 5’ above the floor, set at 70°F. The first images depict the stratification that occurs in such a heated space. Then the ZOO Fan is turned on and the simulation shows how the conditioned air is mixed until, at the end, its temperature is close to uniform throughout. The HVAC system runs less to maintain thermal comfort.
