If a standard order ships out prior to customer cancellation request, the customer will be charged a 25% restocking fee plus the original shipping fee and any additional fees such as reconsignments.
Standard orders can be cancelled up to five (5) business days following the receipt of the Sales Order Acknowledgement without penalty, unless the product has already shipped. After 5 business days, cancelled orders will be subject to a 10% cancellation fee.
Products sold with custom paint/appearance packages or any element of special engineering are final and cannot be cancelled after twenty-four (24) hours from the receipt of the Sales Order Acknowledgement.
Ultraviolet light (UV) that operates at wavelengths between 200-280 nanometers (nm) is typically described as being in the UV “C” band. The light in this type of spectrum is not visible to the human eye and can be used to inactivate pathogens in different applications.
Energetic UV-C photons (bits of light) damage the RNA and DNA molecules in a virus or bacteria to render these microbes unable to replicate, which makes them non-infectious.
Studies have shown that limited air mixing can reduce the effectiveness of air-based germicidal UV-C systems. The use of ceiling fans for air mixing has been shown to increase UV effectiveness by more than 60% (source). The CDC notes even larger increases in performance when UV-C and ceiling fans are used together. “In a room without adequate air mixing under experimental laboratory conditions, the GUV system effectiveness increased from 12% to 89% when a mixing fan was used.” (source)
Germicidal UV is a long-established, evidence-based, safe, and effective strategy for mitigating airborne transmission in rooms where person-to-person risk is greatest. All known pathogens are vulnerable to germicidal UV with variable susceptibility. Respiratory viruses suspended in air are especially vulnerable to UV, but even UV-resistant TB and fungal organisms are easily inactivated using UV. Upper-room GUV has an advantage over in-duct UV by mitigating person-to-person transmission within the room where high concentrations of pathogens increase risk. Advances in the UV industry, including UV-C LEDs and innovative fixture designs, ceiling fan and UV integration, and safe whole-room air and surface disinfection are revolutionizing the application widely to create healthier spaces. Upper room UV air disinfection has a long track record of safety and efficacy based on room experiments and field studies against a wide range of known pathogens and airborne health threats.
DUltraviolet wavelengths of 185 nm can generate ozone, but at longer wavelengths ranging from 250 to 260 nm, ozone is destroyed (source). The output of Haiku with UV-C’s LEDs peak at 265nm, with the vast majority of light output in the 255nm to 273nm range, so ozone is not generated.
No special or additional effort is required to install Haiku with UV-C technology. The UV-C fixture sits atop the Haiku motor and is operated with an included remote control or via the Big Ass Fans mobile app. Please note, Haiku UV-C LED units have a rated use lifetime (9,000 hours) and require replacement when exhausted. For larger installations, Haiku with UV-C technology can also be used with BMS systems that are 0-10v ready.
Haiku models produced in 2020 with SKU codes ending in “G9” are retrofittable. All prior model Haiku ceiling fans are not retrofittable.
Clean Mode is the process in which the UV-C LED fixture on the Haiku unit powers on and actively operates to disinfect and mix the air within the fan’s affected area.
Yes. Clean Mode may be operated continuously according to recommended guidelines. The lifetime of the UV-C LEDs will increase if Clean Mode is not operated continuously.
Clean Mode must be triggered via remote control or via the Big Ass Fans mobile app.
Ultraviolet light (UV) is not visible to the naked eye. When the Haiku with UV-C technology is in operation, a blue light will be illuminated, indicating that Clean Mode is actively operating.
No. The Clean Mode light will always be on if the UV-C lights are in operation. The Clean Mode feature can be turned off so that the fan may operate in regular use without the cleaning function.
Yes. Initiating Clean Mode will start the cleaning process. Your fan can operate normally during that time.
Yes. Haiku’s powerful motor works to mix the air in your space while the UV-C technology inactivates unwanted pathogens. It is important to leverage the powerful airflow of Haiku while operating the UV-C technology in Clean Mode. Without the airflow generating from the Haiku ceiling fan, the UV-C technology would only sanitize the air directly surrounding the UV-C fixture. Operating the ceiling fan in combination with the UV-C fixture brings sanitized air down to the occupant level.
The Haiku UV-C fixture can be replaced at any time to maintain maximum operational efficiency. The rated life for Haiku UV-C diodes is about 9,000 hours or about 375 days of continuous use. Using the Big Ass Fans mobile app, users will be able to track Clean Mode usage to gauge the wider lifetime availability of the product and receive a notification when their board needs replacement.
Haiku UV-C utilizes LED technology and not older mercury lamps.
Yes. It is not dangerous to occupy the space while Haiku with UV-C technology (Clean Mode) is in operation. The Haiku UV-C unit will only operate and disinfect while the airfoils of the fan are in operation. Big Ass Fans conducted use testing via a third-party laboratory and there was no assessed risk to occupants below the blade level.
When operated correctly, Haiku with UV-C technology is safe for your eyes.
