Durable Outdoor Ceiling Fans

You feel it is too hot outside at times to enjoy your outdoor living space and you're searching for Outdoor Ceiling Fans, but which type do you need between a damp rated outdoor ceiling fan and wet rated exterior ceiling fan? That all depends on the location outside of your home that you will be installing your new outdoor ceiling fans. If you are looking to install one on a covered porch or covered patio, all you'll really need is an UL listed damp rated model. If the location of your new fan will be an open roofed pergola, or any other area where it may get direct rainfall coming down from above the fan, you will need a UL Wet Rated Outdoor Ceiling Fan.

The difference between these two types of fans is in the way the motor and areas where the other electrical components are sealed, and in some cases the type of blades being used. For example, the Gulf Coast Bamboo Raindance is completely sealed off to prevent water damage and can be directly rained upon without the water harming the motor or the electronics. The blades are made of a special ABS (Acrylonitrile Autadiene Styrene) plastic, which is a special plastic material that has no true melting point, allowing them to be completely warp resistant. Of course, with all these features this version of the Raindance is wet rated, and it is one of our better traditionally styled outdoor ceiling fan models.

An example of a damp rated model would be the TroposAir Mustang II. This model uses dual motors that can be tilted to throw air in a wide or slender downward pattern, whichever way best suits your needs. The blades are made of a sealed walnut wood that will not warp, yet at the same time they shouldn't get wet from direct water contact either. A light is also integrated between the twin motors that power the fan. Although this is one of our more uniquely styled outdoor ceiling fans, and an awesome exterior fan at that, and it will hold up perfectly under a covered outdoor area, it is not a wet location model. Therefore it should not be installed unless there is a covered roof above it.
