Hunter® High Velocity Fans Offer Superior Air Movement

Memphis, Tenn. (February 13, 2008) – Hunter Fan Co. knows some living and work spaces call for vigorous air movement – something more than what a ceiling fan alone can offer. Garages, workshops, gyms, game rooms and job sites all demand powerful air movement to keep people cool and circulate musty or soiled air. Hunter developed a special line of fans called JetStream™ to meet the needs of these spaces.


“We’ve been in the air movement business for more than 100 years and have been committed to developing high-quality products that meet the diverse needs of our customers,” says Hunter Fan Product Manager Jeremy Tarr.


High-powered fans can even help get jobs done more efficiently – freshly painted walls will dry faster with the help of a high-velocity fan than stagnant air alone. “You can point one fan at the wet wall and another at the workers – the wall will dry faster and the workers will stay comfortable longer,” says Tarr.

Hunter offers three models of JetStream High velocity fans featuring powerful, 3-speed motors that come with a 5-year warranty:

  • 18” Garage Fan with integrated flexible task light and 360 degree “anywhere air” technology can be used on the floor or installed over head on its patented ceiling bracket. It can also be plugged into the extra outlet typically available for a garage door opener.
  • 18” Sherpa Cart Fan with two halogen work lights and power box, carries up to 200 lbs. of gear to the worksite. Height adjustable for placement in front of a standard window for use as an exhaust fan.
  • 14” Twin Turbo Jobsite Fan with sturdy aluminum frame, extra power box and rugged and convenient 2-wheeled construction.

JetStream fans incorporate the high performance air movement Hunter fans are known for with rugged durability that can stand up to the workload in rough working and living spaces.

Founded in 1886 and headquartered in Memphis, Tenn., Hunter Fan Co. is the world’s original ceiling fan manufacturer. Today, the company also manufactures high-performance air purifiers, low-maintenance humidifiers, vaporizers, portable fans and energy-saving thermostats.
