The Best Outdoor Fans


Installing the right type of equipment suited for a particular environment proves essential when considering the best fans for outdoor use. Designed differently than their indoor counterparts, outdoor ceiling fans will function if exposed to any weather conditions including rain, excessive heat, snow, ice, dirt, dust, wind and extreme fluctuations in temperature. Outdoor ceiling fans utilize a specialized protective powder coating and weather barrier in and around the decorative motor casing. The two types of outdoor ceiling fans include dry-rated fans for slightly damp areas and wet-rated fans for wet conditions.
