Are you looking for a cooling fixture that offers form and function to your home's exterior? Outdoor ceiling fans are made with light kits, motor housings, and fan blades that withstand humidity and moisture in damp locations. These outdoor ceiling fans are rated by the Underwriter Laboratories (UL) for outdoor use in damp or wet environments. A wet-rating by UL means the product has been designed with moisture-resistant bodies and all-weather blades that stand up to exterior conditions like rain, snow, ocean spray, and water. A damp-rating by UL means the design allows for some moisture to be present but the motor is not waterproof. These fans are perfect for providing airflow in your outdoor living space. Select an exterior fan from one of our many renowned brands like Minka-Aire, Hunter Fans, Casablanca, Craftmade, Kichler, Modern Forms, and Fanimation to enjoy your home's great outdoors.
Patio Ceiling Fans for Indoor/Outdoor Areas & Backyard Living Spaces
Are you looking to expand your living room to your backyard deck, pergola, or patio? Outdoor ceiling fans with lights offer additional convenience and enable homeowners to spend time outside during the spring and summer months into the evening. Available in flush-mount, low profile, or with a short or long downrod, you are sure to find a mounting option to fit your ceiling height, whether you have high or low ceilings. Outdoor fans circulate air to provide a cool and comfortable breeze that enhances outdoor spaces, open-air activities, and events. Outdoor ceiling fans are available in many styles and finishes, such as Pewter, Matte Black, Matte White, Brushed Nickel, Brushed Steel, and Stainless Steel. 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. Our outdoor ceiling fans buying guide will help you make the best decision.
Types of Outdoor Ceiling Fans
Are you in search of a way to make your Florida room more inhabitable during the height of summer? 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 location ratings can be exposed directly to rain, water, and snow. Wet rated ceiling fans are great for exposed gazebos, pergolas, patios, and porches. Be sure to consider some of our most popular outdoor ceiling fans, like the Monte Carlo Maverick II Outdoor Ceiling Fan with 52" blade span and wood blades, Modern Forms Aviator 54" Outdoor LED Hugger Ceiling Fan with Light Kit, Minka-Aire Java 54" Convertible 3-Blade Ceiling Fan, Minka-Aire Xtreme H2O 84" Outdoor Ceiling Fan, and the Hunter Cassius 52" Convertible Smart Ceiling Fan.
