Durable Outdoor Ceiling Fans

Does your exterior living space need more airflow? Then adding quality outdoor ceiling fans is just what you need. But which type should you choose between a damp rated and a wet rated outdoor ceiling fan? That all depends on what will be above the location where your new outside ceiling fan will be installed.

Areas to Use Damp Rated Models

If you're looking to install a standard styled, or even an oscillating ceiling fan on a covered porch, patio, or covered deck you will only need a model that is UL listed for use in damp locations. This is known as a damp rated ceiling fan.

When to Use Wet Rated Fans

If the location of where your new overhead fan will be installed is an open roofed pergola, or any other area where it may get direct rainfall, and we're not talking about a little blowing rain here and there, but rainfall that may be consistently beating down from above, then you will need a wet rated model.

Difference: Wet is Waterproof, Damp is Humidity Resistant

The difference between the two ratings is in the way the motors and 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 from entering in from above. This fan can handle heavy rains coming straight down onto it from the top without the water being able to get into the motor or other electrical components. It comes with ABS (Acrylonitrile Autadiene Styrene) blades, which is a special plastic material that is heat resistant up to 212 degrees, allowing them to be completely warp resistant under any natural heat wave. Of course, with all of these features, this version of the Raindance is an outdoor ceiling fan that is wet rated, and it is one of our better traditionally styled out-of-doors ceiling fans.

An example of a damp rated ceiling fan would be the TroposAir Mustang II. This model uses dual motors that can be tilted to throw airflow in a wide or slender downward pattern, depending on the angle of the motor tilt. Adjust them whichever way best suits your needs best. The blades on this one are made of a sealed walnut wood, and they will not warp due to dampness. Yet, since these blades are not plastic, they are not made to withstand direct downpours of rain, like their plastic counterparts. Although this is one of our more unique ceiling fans for patios and covered decks, it is not sealed from water that could to enter from above when a roof isn't present. Therefore, it should only be used outside of the house in a covered location. It can still resist humidity and blowing mist of rain when heavy storms are present, but it is not made to handle direct water pouring in from above the installation location.

Industrial, Tropical, Rustic, Modern Styles and More

Now that you should understand outdoor ceiling fan by rating that you will need, the next step will be to find one that meets your taste in nature-loving décor. We carry many name brands such as Minka Aire, Fanimation, TroposAir, Hunter, and Casablanca. All of which offer many designer choices in styling, from nautical inspired, to simple designs.

If your outside living area is along the coast, then you may love tropical themed ceiling fans. If you prefer contemporary architecture, then modern outdoor ceiling fans are most likely what you'll choose for your new exterior fan.

Whichever design choice is your cup of tea, you're sure to find the perfect one when browsing the vast selection we offer. And it doesn't matter the height of where you'll be installing your new fan, because we have outdoor ceiling fans that can be dropped on longer downrods for taller areas, and we have open-environment overhead fans that are low profile and can be flush mounted for when the installation structure is not so tall.

Remote Controlled Models

Once you've discovered your choice in styling, why not make controlling your new wind maker as easy as possible? Some come standard with hand-held or in-wall remote controls, while others have pull chain control operation. But these days, who wants to deal with having to get up out of the hammock to slow down their outdoor fan when the afternoon sun begins to settle? Therefore, even if you chose a design that does not come standard with a remote, you can simply add one as an accessory. They are available for every exterior model we offer.
