Are you looking for cooling fixture that offers form and function to your home's exterior? Outdoor ceiling fans, also known as overhead patio fans, are made with motor houses and blades that withstand humidity and moisture. These outdoor ceiling fans are sealed to protect key motor and electrical components and rated by the Underwriter Laboratories (UL), an independent, non-profit organization that conducts product safety testing, and are designated for damp or wet environments. For example, Pergola fans have a Wet listing by UL and are designed with moisture-resistant bodies and all-weather blades that stand up to exterior conditions like rain, snow, ocean spray, and water. While indoor/outdoor fans used in areas that are not exposed to direct moisture, such as garages, sunrooms, and screened-in porches are Damp listed.

These exterior cooling fixtures allow you to expand your living space to outside your home, creating a comfortable and functional environment no matter the weather. Outdoor ceiling fans with lights offer additional convenience and enable homeowners to spend time outside during the spring and summer months into the evening. Exterior cooling fixtures such as these are ideal for family get-togethers and backyard barbeques because you cannot rely on Mother Nature to delivery idyllic 72 degree days every day! Overhead outdoor fans circulate are to provide a cool and comfortable breeze that enhances open-air activities and events.

Patio Ceiling Fans for Indoor/Outdoor Areas & Damp or Wet Locations

Damp-rated ceiling fans are great for covered areas like screened-in patios or porches and sunrooms, where rain or water will not reach the ceiling fan. Fans with UL-wet ratings can be exposed directly to rain, water and snow. Wet-rated ceiling fans are great for exposed gazebos, patios, and porches. These ceiling fans can easily be maintained free of dust and debris by using a water hose. UL-wet fans can be installed in dry and damp environments; however, UL-damp ceiling fans cannot be installed in wet environments, and indoor ceiling fans are strictly to be installed in dry, interior spaces. Outdoor ceiling fans are available in many styles, from contemporary to tropical, to complement and improve your home's exterior. Many of these outside fans include features like integrated lighting and handheld remote or wall controls. If installing an exterior ceiling fan is not an option, consider purchasing outdoor wall-mounted fans or outdoor standing fans, which are portable and can be re-positioned where they are most needed. Select an exterior fan from one of Del Mar Fans & Lighting’s many renowned brands and enjoy your home's great outdoors.

Types of Outdoor Ceiling Fans

Manufacturers like Emerson outdoor ceiling fans are producing exterior fans that vary in sizes, designs and finishes. These fans bring beauty and comfort to the great outdoors, whether it is enjoying drinks on the patio or reading a book in the gazebo. The following are the most popular types of outdoor ceiling fans:

  • Small – These versatile ceiling fans are appropriate for outdoor living areas with less than 100 square feet such as a balcony. However, do not hesitate to install a small outdoor fan in your kitchen, bathroom, pantry or walk-in closet to minimize indoor humidity.
  • Large – These ceiling fans are suitable for exterior areas greater than 300 square feet such as a large patio or front porch.
  • Flush Mount – These exterior fans are suited for outdoor living areas with a ceiling height less than the recommended eight feet.
  • With Lights – These outdoor fans combine comfort and safety by providing the cooling breeze of a ceiling fan with the necessity of a light fixture.

Installing Exterior Ceiling Fans

Installing outdoor ceiling fans is as easy as installing indoor ceiling fans. You should read the owner's manual to familiarize yourself with the detailed directions; however, here's a brief overview. Prior to installing an exterior ceiling fan, make sure the power is turned off at the circuit breaker box. Then, confirm all the necessary parts and tools are included in the original packaging. You may pre-assemble the downrod and fan blades to save time. Next, follow the instructions below:

  1. Install the mounting bracket to the junction box
  2. Hang the ceiling fan body from the bracket
  3. Connect the wires as follows: green ground wires, white neutral wires, and black power wires
  4. Attach the blades to the motor housing snuggly
  5. Fasten all screws tightly

Lastly, turn the power back on and test the new exterior ceiling fan at the highest speed. Look for wobbling and listen for noises that indicate additional balancing in necessary.
