Whether you need Dallas commercial fan installation for a brand-new building or have an outdated fan that just isn’t performing how you need it to, our HVAC professionals have you covered. We’ll install almost any type of commercial fan you can think of. The most popular types of units available today include:
- Roof exhaust units
- Wall exhaust units
- Commercial ceiling units
- Filtered exhaust and supply units
- Exhaust panel units
- And more!
Installing these devices isn’t as easy as slapping them on your wall or roof and calling it a day. Fortunately, our HVAC professionals have the knowledge and training to optimally install your commercial fan to ensure you get the right amount of airflow and ventilation needed for your space.
The steps we take for your Dallas commercial fan installation will be tailored to your commercial property and your ventilation needs. We encourage you to discuss any steps involved in your Dallas commercial fan installation directly with us, but to get a general idea of the steps involved throughout this process, we’ve provided an overview of the following basic steps:
- Preparation of installation area. Whether your unit is going to be installed on your wall, ceiling, or roof, we’ll need to inspect and prepare the area first. Using specialized power tools and equipment, we’ll cut a hole to the correct size for your unit.
- Commercial fan installation. With the area prepared, we’ll attach the frame and blades to the wall, ceiling or roof. Typically, we’ll apply caulking or some other sealing material to prevent unwanted drafts and moisture damage.
- Wiring. To finish off your Dallas commercial fan installation, we’ll connect it to power. It can also be set to run on a timer so that it isn’t left running accidentally.
Dallas Commercial Fan Repair
In addition to our Dallas commercial fan installation service, we also offer professional commercial fan repair. There is a wide variety of commercial exhaust fan repairs that we do, depending on the cause of the problem you’re experiencing with your unit.
Our commercial customers typically call us with one or more of these complaints about their units:
- A lack of airflow
- Uncomfortably hot temperatures
- Strange sounds coming from your unit
- Stronger fumes than usual
All of these issues can greatly affect your and your employees' comfort and safety.
Your commercial fan repair will begin with an assessment by one of our HVAC professionals. They’ll perform a series of tests to troubleshoot and identify the cause of your poorly functioning or inoperable device. Some issues we often find include the following:
- Failing bearing. Bearings are responsible for reducing friction when your fan's blades spin. Our HVAC team can repair or replace all kinds of bearings, including z-axis bearings, one-ball bearings, two-ball bearings, and sleeve bearings.
- Motor failure. If your unit's motor has died, your device is likely inoperable. Depending on the type of motor needed, this part may be replaceable.
- Belt failure. Belts within your unit may be in need of replacement if cracked or deteriorating. If its belt is in good condition, your device's pulleys may be misaligned, or your belts may need to be tensioned. Our HVAC team has the experience to identify all of these issues and take all appropriate steps to make the repair.

Dallas Commercial Fan Installation and Repair FAQs
How Do I Know What Size of Exhaust Fan I Need?
To determine the right size for your Dallas commercial fan installation, you’ll want to calculate the CFM (cubic feet per minute) of air exchange that you’d like your space to have.
You’ll need the following numbers to do this calculation:
- The dimensions of the room your commercial fan repair or replacement will be done in. Measure the length, width, and height of your room in feet.
- Your desired air exchange frequency, in minutes. There are different recommended values for this, depending on the type of industry you work in. For example, commercial kitchens need an air exchange frequency of 1 to 5 minutes, with an average of 3 minutes. In contrast, public bathrooms should have an exchange frequency of between 4 and 10 minutes. If you’re not sure what the appropriate amount is for your industry, check with our Dallas HVAC professionals.
To calculate CFM, you’ll want to:
- Calculate the volume of the room (length x width x height). In this example, let’s say the room is 15 feet long, 12 feet wide, and 8 feet high. This gives you a value of 1,440 feet cubed.
- Next, take a look at the exchange frequency you’ve chosen and determine how many times you want the air exchanged per hour. For example, if you want the air exchanged every 3 minutes in your commercial kitchen, you’ll want the air exchanged 20 times per hour (60/3 = 20).
- Now, multiply the number of times per hour you want the air to be exchanged by the volume of the room. In our example, this works out to be 28,800 (1,400 x 20).
- Finally, divide this value by 60. This gives you a CFM of 480 (28,800/60). You will therefore want to look for a commercial exhaust device with a CFM of at least 480 to meet your target.
Does this seem too complicated and overwhelming? That’s why we’re the experts! Our HVAC professionals can figure out the required CFM for your commercial fan repair or replacement.
When Is Commercial Fan Repair a Viable Option?
If you prefer to try commercial fan repair before commercial fan replacement, our service professionals can come over and conduct an assessment to determine whether or not repair is a viable option. We’ll always try to save you money wherever possible, and if this means doing a repair rather than a replacement, we’re all for it.
However, sometimes the cost of repairs is comparable to the cost of a replacement. If your current exhaust fan is quite a few years old, it may be more cost-effective to opt for replacement rather than do repairs, as newer models tend to be much more energy efficient, therefore saving you more money in the long run.
Our HVAC professionals will take the time to explain their recommendations, as well as the justification behind their recommendations. At the end of the day, the choice between a Dallas commercial fan installation and commercial fan repair is entirely yours, but you can rest assured that the team at Aire Serv will provide all the services you need for every kind of commercial fan repair, maintenance, and replacement work.
What Are the Benefits of a Dallas Commercial Fan Installation?
When it comes to a Dallas commercial fan installation, it’s all benefits and no drawbacks. Some of the biggest benefits include:
- Improved indoor air quality. Just as ventilation is important in your home, so too is it important in the workplace. To be effective, ventilation must be controlled. If uncontrolled, exterior air may infiltrate the premises to a greater extent than you desire, causing your HVAC system to have to work harder to heat and cool your space. Active ventilation, like that created through a Dallas commercial fan installation, efficiently exchanges stale indoor air with exterior air to improve your indoor air quality without allowing too much outside air to infiltrate the building.
- Improved comfort. These devices can actually lower the ambient temperature, making the room feel cooler and more comfortable. This benefits both your workers and your customers.
- Lower energy costs. An exhaust fan is much more economical for large commercial spaces than air conditioning. Run your air conditioning less and save on utility costs with a Dallas commercial fan installation.
What Does Commercial Fan Maintenance Involve?
At Aire Serv of Dallas, we’re big advocates for the importance of commercial HVAC maintenance. Performing preventative maintenance on a regular basis will prolong your unit's lifespan and save you money on costly repairs in the future.
If you choose to get our commercial fan maintenance service done regularly, we may perform some or all of the following actions:
- Replace shaft seal
- Clean wheel
- Lubricate bearings
- Add grease to couplings
- Replace belts as needed
- Paint and sealant touch-ups
We recommend scheduling a commercial fan maintenance service twice per year.
Is an Exhaust Fan the Same as a Ceiling Fan?
An industrial ceiling fan and an exhaust fan are two different types of units. Commercial ceiling fans are generally larger and more powerful than residential ceiling fans, but they differ from exhaust units in that they circulate indoor air in a room rather than exchange it. Exhaust fans actually push interior air outside of the building rather than merely recirculate it.
