Spending time in outdoor patio during the summer time can be the most pleasurable time. However, hot weather during the sunny season can make us a little bit uncomfortable. Outdoor ceiling fan lighting can be the best way out for this problem. With this tool you can cool while enjoying your patio. For your information, ceiling fan with light for outdoor is different from that of indoor.
Typically there are two types of fan, dam and wet-rated ceiling fan. Both types can be used. If your outdoor patio is a covered area, you can think about damp fans. Meanwhile, wet-rated fans work well for real outdoor area which is directly exposed to rain.
Since it is important to choose between the two types, you should first decide where to install the fan lighting. I have a covered gazebo and it is quite large. So, I think using a damp fan will be okay as the fan won’t be wet because of rains.
The local weather conditions should also be considered. For example, for mild weather which is not too hot, a ceiling fan lighting with medium power is sufficient. In this way, you can save more money.
Unfortunately, I live in the hub of the downtown where the weather is very hot even in the morning. So, the more powerful ceiling fan works better for me.
I like to choose ceiling fan lighting in a large diameter size. It is because the gazebo I want to cool has a large size too. When you choose the diameter size, you should consider not only the size of the room but also the height of the ceiling.
The higher the ceiling is the larger diameter works better. There are also types of ceiling fans with support rods and ceiling bars. Pick the one that is suitable with your outdoor ceiling condition.
Lastly, it is important to install a ceiling fan lighting that matches the decor of your outdoor. Ceiling fan with lighting for outdoor use are available in a wide range of styles.
You can choose the one to match the plants and trees surroundings, match the type of outdoor enclosure, and match the patio furniture.
As it is placed in outdoor area, the fan can easily show dirt or corrode, opt for dark color. It will be better if you install a protection on it especially if you live near the ocean to protect the fan from serious corrosion.
