Outdoor Ceiling Fans

By: Mark Van Tuel

Outdoor ceiling fans are not made the same way as indoor ceiling fans, because being outdoors means that they have to be able to handle moisture. All outdoor fans have to be tested before they are sold to the public to ensure that they can handle the weather and being outside.

These types of fans are normally installed in places that are likely to be exposed to the different elements throughout certain times of the year, also in places that aren’t open to complete cooling and heating from a house. They were made to be strong and handle sudden changes in temperature and some of them can even handle days of rain.

The biggest difference there is between outdoor ceiling fans and normal indoor ones is the fact that outdoor fans are generally made from plastic or resin as they have to be able to deal with weather conditions, while indoor fans can be made from soft wood and other materials that can easily be damaged.

The Tommy Bahama Breezes fan model TB344AP is a model that features dark mahogany blades and a three speed pull chain. The blades come separately with the fan so you can design however you want to. The motor on this fan is the most powerful one ever made.

Minka Aire Gyro model F402-ORB is also one of the outdoor ceiling fans; this one is bronze in color and comes complete with a transmitter and function wall control. With twin turbofans, this fan produces rapid cool air circulation. Both the cages of the fan can be rotated to ninety degrees for your convenience.

The Fanimation Old Havana Ceiling Mount Fan model FA-FPH210AC has an antique copper fan motor. These fans are not only function, but they are also very stylish. With five airflow ratings, a 0.75 amp motor, and a non reversible airflow this fan will provide you with all the cool air you need.

Another one of the popular outdoor ceiling fans is the Emerson Maui Bay Model CF 2000WB. The great thing about this fan is that there is not only one type of blades that can be used, from tropical leaf blades to tear-proof sailcloth and hand woven wicker. This fan also has three speeds and reversible airflow.?

Concord Boardwalk Ceiling Fan Model 52BW5AP is available in aged pecan and it comes in three speeds that are accessed via a pull chain. This fan may look good but it is also cost effective as it will save energy and it costs less to maintain. It comes with an adaptor so that it can be installed in low areas.

Outdoor ceiling fans would not be complete without the Minka Aire Concept Wet Ceiling Fan model F577ORB. This fan is a very popular one because the motor has been modified to make it more powerful and it also keeps away bugs.

The Monte Carlo Grand Isle Ceiling Fan Model 5GIR54RB is also an outdoor fan. This one comes complete with a transmitter, three different speeds, different dimming options and reverse airflow.?

The amount of outdoor ceiling fans are virtually endless, every design and style is just about covered. There is an outdoor ceiling fan to suit every home!
