Are you looking for a way to cool your indoor/outdoor space? Damp-rated ceiling fansare cooling appliances that are specifically manufactured for use in these environments. They feature moisture-resistant construction. Moreover, damp ceiling fans do not lose their good looks when they are exposed to moisture as well as sunlight. This makes them excellent choices for a patio, gazebo, pergola, or porch. Damp rated ceiling fans are available from many quality brands including Minka Aire, Monte Carlo, Fanimation, Modern Forms, Casablanca, Kichler, Craftmade and Hunter Fan Company. While fans with a wet rating are approved for use in wet locations where they might be exposed to heavy rain or excessive moisture, damp rated ceiling fans are not waterproof.
Choosing the Best Installation Space for Your Indoor/Outdoor Cooling Device
Many homeowners choose damp location ceiling fans for installation in garages. Because the spaces are typically not heated, moisture content of the air fluctuates considerably. In the same way, damp-rated outdoor ceiling fans are a good option for a pool house where frequent use leads to changes in the atmosphere. When you rely on this technology, you ensure that the fan will not experience operational problems during heavy use. Some homeowners prefer the installation of several small damp-rated ceiling fans to pinpoint areas that require better airflow during use.
Outdoor ceiling fans are available with both downrod and flush mount/hugger styles. Change fan settings with either pull chains, wall controls, or remote control. If you want something energy efficient, look for fans with an Energy Star rating, which are commonly equipped with LED light kits and DC motors. To ensure you can find a ceiling fan that matches your home's style, there are a wide range of finishes available including brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze, pewter, matte black and matte white.
The Monte Carlo Maverick Max High Airflow Outdoor LED Ceiling Fan with 70-inch blade span is a popular choice for outdoor areas. This fan features a dimmable light kit and reversible blades.
The Fanimation Subtle Outdoor High Airflow Smart Ceiling Fan with LED Light and Remote Control is the perfect addition to any smart home's outdoor living room. Its Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities allow you to change fan settings using your smart phone.
What is your choice when you anticipate exposure to the elements? In this situation, you will be well-served with a wet-rated ceiling fan. This appliance features fan blades and a housing that are impervious to moisture damage. Moreover, small outdoor ceiling fans are great choices when you have multiple spaces you want to cool down selectively.
