The outdoor space at home needs lighting and air circulation at the same time. It will be impractical if the light and fan are separated. It will be great if you have a ceiling fan featuring the light. Since you intend to set the ceiling fan in the patio, deck or creative glass sunroom, make sure that it is specifically designed for an outdoor use. It will be hazardous to use the indoor ceiling fan with light for the outdoor purpose. The forces of Mother Nature can be resisted by the outdoor ceiling fans because they are created in different design and parts from the indoor ones. The outdoor space is mostly affected by the presence of moisture and water. Therefore, it features the sealed decorative motor casing.
The stainless steel material is used as the main component in this ceiling fan with higher grade of wiring and ABS plastic blades. The lighting fixture is located on the top. It is designed for outdoor usage. If you are interested to install an outdoor ceiling fan with lights on the patio, outdoor kitchen design or decking area, select the suitable type. There are two major choices available. Both are the ceiling fan for wet location and damp location. If the ceiling fan with light is installed in chic uncovered patio, terrace or porch, select the wet rated outdoor fans. The direct fans and wind will never affect the safety of ceiling fan and light. It is a good choice for illuminating the open porch, pergola and uncovered wooden gazebo.
The damp rated outdoor ceiling fan is the suitable option for the covered porch, gazebo and pergola. Therefore, this lamp and fan are protected from the rain and excessive moisture. Actually the outdoor fan can be used for indoor purpose. It can be installed inside the bathroom or small laundry room because of the high level of dampness. If you live in a windy area, it is recommended to install a ceiling fan without blade holders. You can reduce the risk of having the blades on the ceiling fan broken. It will be better if you consult with the shopkeeper before you purchase a new ceiling fan.
