Choosing the Right Outdoor Ceiling Fan
Here are some considerations to help you choose the best outdoor ceiling fan for your outside space:
Damp Location vs. Wet Location - outdoor ceiling fans are rated as either Damp Location or Wet Location. Damp location fans are for covered outdoor areas such as a porch or patio where the design will be protected from direct contact with rain. Wet-rated designs are ideal for an open gazebo, cabana pool area, or wherever the fan might be in direct contact with the elements. We also recommend that you use a Wet Location fan for waterfront or dock areas, for areas exposed to salt air and water, for high humidity areas, for areas with extreme hot or cold temperatures, and for locations with constant sun and UV exposure.
With Lights - Let your design do double-duty! As they create a refreshing breeze, outside ceiling fans with lights can brighten pool areas, porches and more. Plus, you'll enjoy the added safety and security of a well-illuminated outdoor space.
Style - Ceiling fans are available in a variety of styles from contemporary to tropical and more to match your home's exterior. Or show off your unique sense of style by creating your own custom ceiling fan! Whether you design your own or choose from our wide selection, you can be certain the quality and style is right on the money.
