SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — AirViz, MacroAir’s airflow simulation service, has been overhauled to provide automated custom visualizations. This enables customers to see how high volume, low speed (HVLS) fans would move air in their facility before purchasing and installing an HVLS solution.

The AirViz software, initially launched in 2014, is now optimized and enhanced as a new web application where MacroAir distributors can submit the dimensions of a customer’s facility online. Once sent to the web app, the system renders a custom 3D simulation utilizing new cloud computing technology. Before the applications’ redesign, MacroAir engineers had to manually calculate and animate the simulations, sometimes taking two days or a week to complete. By moving the platform to the cloud and fine-tuning the process, distributors and customers are now able to receive simulations for typical applications within a few hours.

AirViz uses computational fluid dynamics to simulate air speed, temperature, and airflow direction as it is drawn in and pushed out by HVLS fans. The virtual installation model precisely tracks the pattern and speed of the air in a 3D motion animation, allowing MacroAir distributors to more precisely determine how many HVLS fans a specific space will need. With the AirViz simulation, customers can virtually “try before they buy.”

A custom AirViz simulation can be can requested for free by contacting a local distributor or filling out a request on MacroAir’s website by visiting
