Big Ass Fans

Shopping for stuff for the new house sometimes leads to interesting, new information.

We are using a lot of ceiling fans. We like them. So we've been looking at a lot of ceiling fans. So we stumbled across this company named "Big Ass Fans." You probably think I'm making this up but just click the name borrowed from the web site and you'll find them.

They have fans from 6' to 24' diameter. They began in 1999 as the HVLS Fan Company. HVLS was short for "High Volume Low Speed" but people would say "That's a big ass fan!" So they changed the name.

The company is out of Lexington, KY. I noticed on web page it said that they believed to know them was to love them.

Their newsletter is Big Ass News.

I was going to post about the fact that I am now exercising over in the new house but Big Ass Fans just seemed so much more interesting.
