Screened Porch

The 42" Minka-Aire Sundance is a very popular wet-rated outdoor ceiling fan for those looking to install a fan in an area that is often wet. The oil-rubbed bronze finish and the all-weather dark oak combine beautifully to make this an excellent fixture for your porch, patio, courtyard, or gazebo. The ability to withstand the natural elements, the small, 42" blade diameter, the 3,428 CFM rating, and the 65.6 high-efficiency rating make this fan choice a no-brainer. The 4.9 user review rating was only a bonus to backup what we already know about this quality ceiling fan.

Front Porch

The best-damp rated outdoor ceiling fan is an easy decision when the 48" Hunter Sea Wind fan is an option. The white ceiling fan blades against the white motor housing really brings the traditional Hunter style and craftsmanship to the forefront, and its classic style ensure it will match any location. The simplicity, reliability, popularity, and most importantly, the UL damp listing, rockets this ceiling fan to the top of our list. The flush mount ability is an added benefit for consumers considering the Hunter Sea Wind.

Covered Deck

The 60" Quorum Portico's unique aesthetics creates a beautiful centerpiece for any room. The nautical style downlight helps brighten the area, and when combined with the fan's high CFM rating, you'll quickly understand why we put the Quorum Portico in the #1 spot for covered decks.


There aren't any fans that are better fit for a sunroom than the 54" Hunter Biscayne. The combination of the damp UL rating, high CFM rating, and maritime styling makes this fan the very best for your outdoor sunroom.


Although the blade span on the 48" Westinghouse Oasis is on the smaller side, the airflow efficiency ensures a great breeze in your gazebo. This elegant, wet-rated ceiling fan features wonderful coastal styling with fan blades that resemble tropical leaves. The lighting design resembles an old-style lantern with a great efficiency rating, which helped this fan land our #1 spot for gazebo fans.


The 65" Minka-Aire Slipstream is by far the best ceiling fan to use with a pergola. Although the wet rating is its most important aspect, the sleek, modern, and 8 blade design is an important factor for having this fixture as #1. The great looks, low electricity use, and high airflow rating influenced this decision.


When it comes to selecting an outdoor fan for a lanai, the value of the 52" Minka-Aire Traditional Concept supersedes similar fans. The UL listed wet rating, traditional design, attached light kit, and included remote create the best value for outside your home.


The large 60" Emerson Loft outdoor fan is the perfect choice for any veranda. The multiple finish options ensure you can match this fan to any design, style, or décor that is already in place. The theme surrounding your veranda can be complete with this simple, large, and efficient ceiling fan.


Looking for the best garage ceiling fan? The 54" Hunter Bayview ceiling fan is the finest choice for installation in your garage and workshop. The decorative blades are reversible and resemble palm leaves. Although it is available in dark and light finishes, we prefer the darker Provencal Gold for a workshop that only requires additional air circulation.

Pool House

The decorative 52" Monte Carlo Cruise, with its decorative fan blades designed to resemble palm leaves, is perfect for a warm pool house. The efficient CFM rating and operation creates the perfect combination for a warm outdoor space, while the wet rating and wide blade span creates a cool, comfortable environment for all your guests in the pool house.

Florida Room
