Durable for Exterior Use

Does your outside 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 fan will be installed.

Areas Suitable Damp Rated

If you're looking to install a traditional design, or even a modern 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. The key thing to remember is, if your location is covered by a roof then the UL damp location listing is all you need to be consider. A little misting or blowing rain is not a concern, as long as direct rainfall isn't coming in from directly above the installation area.

When to Use Wet Rated

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

The Difference: Wet = Waterproof, Damp = Moisture 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 understand why outdoor ceiling fans have two different ratings, the next step will be to find one that matches your tastes in outdoor living 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 favorite exterior living space is along the coast, then you may love tropical themed ceiling fans. If you prefer contemporary architecture, then a modern outdoor ceiling fan is most likely what you will choose.

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 Control Outdoor Ceiling Fans

Once you've discovered your choice in styling, why not make controlling your new airflow machine as easy as possible? Some include 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 the air 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.
