How to Choose the Right Industrial Fan Installer

So you’re looking for an industrial fan installer– what are some tips for finding the right one? Obviously, you want to work with an installer who’s reliable and cost-effective. What are some specific things to keep in mind when searching for an industrial fan installer?


First, you should look for an installer who knows and understands your business. A good installer is familiar with your industry, services, technology, etc. They’re not coming into the building “blindly,” but, rather, somewhat familiar with what you offer and what you need to improve your working conditions.

What are your requirements? If possible, define those requirements to yourself first, and then to the potential installer. Take some time to write down what you need and why you need it. Ideally, be as detailed as possible. This way you have some key information to share with installers, so you’re prepared when you speak with them about your requirements.

Timeline Expectations

How are your expectations? Do you expect the work to be done within a week of calling a company? Are you okay with waiting a month before work starts? Do you expect there to be no shipping delays (despite the pandemic), or problems with parts? Basically, be realistic with your expectations.

Pricing Expectations

When it comes to cost(s), typically you find three potential installers and then weigh their pros and cons. Usually, it comes down to price, doesn’t it? So, most people choose the one in the middle. If someone can do the job for you for $750, $1,000 or $1,500, you’ll likely choose the one for $1,000. Besides price, ask about their support. Do they have a help desk or number to call if you’ve got issues? Are upgrades available in the future if needed?

Strong Communication

Speaking of questions, don’t be afraid to ask as many questions as you want in order to find answers to your concerns. A good company will not only welcome questions, but be able to put their answers into words so you can easily understand them. Communication is key! You should feel heard and listened to, and it should be easy for you to contact someone at the installation company. When you call them, someone attentively answers the phone in a pleasant manner and is ready to help. If you call and never get another human being on the line, you’ll probably just give up, right?

Solid Reputation

When looking for the right installer, search for companies that have been around a while and have built up a solid reputation in their industry. You can look for online reviews, talk to references about their experiences and/or physically visit companies and see what they’re like “in-person.” Ideally, you want to work with a company that has been in business for several years and looks like it will be in business for many years to come. You also want to work with quality people who can complete the task fairly quickly– quality and timeliness of work certainly matter.

Your next industrial fan installer brings with them technical capacity, the right products and tools for the job and a “can-do” attitude– their skill sets and expertise should give you peace-of-mind that they’re going to do a fine installation job and you won’t have to worry at all. If, for some reason, you don’t feel comfortable about a person or crew member, you should always feel empowered to speak up and ask for someone else to work on your project. For instance, if you see someone doing something unsafe and you’re worried that your company could get hit with a lawsuit, ask them to stop what they’re doing and tell them “This is unacceptable.”
