Let’s face it, deciding to replace your air handling unit fan is no minor consideration. Sometimes a catastrophic fan failure means you have no choice but to replace the failed fan. Sometimes, the fan has yet to fail, and there are other considerations such as performance or maintenance.

Perhaps the biggest consideration for most clients replacing AHU fans is cost. Commercial grade AHUs, their fans, and other internal components can be costly. Operating belt-driven air handling unit fans requires regular maintenance and can be energy-intensive.

Making the best decision about what kind of AHU fan to use today can have major cost implications as the unit runs over the course of many years.

Comparing the upfront comparative costs of fan systems is pretty straightforward, but when you consider installation, maintenance, and energy consumption over a period of years, things get more complicated.

Mainstream’s EC fan arrays are incredibly energy efficient. Even though they have a higher upfront cost than traditional fan systems, they are the less costly option over time. Your specific application will dictate the payback period, but most clients can pay for their fans with energy savings in less than 5 years.

Don’t take out word for it. Let’s crunch the numbers together to figure out your payback period for using Mainstream EC fan arrays versus more traditional belt-driven AC motored powered fans, or any other type of fan you would like to compare.
