There are two types of outdoor ceiling fans, damp-rated and wet-rated designed to be used in two different environments.
Damp-Rated: Designed to withstand moisture and humidity, but it cannot be exposed to the elements. A damp-rated fan is suited for a covered area outdoors such as a covered gazebo or a screened-in porch.
Wet-Rated: Designed to withstand rain, snow and wind. A wet rated ceiling fan has a completely sealed motor and weather-proof blades designed for function. It does not need to be covered or unistalled during winter.
Outdoor fans provide the benefit of a cooler relaxation area while keeping away unwanted bugs and mosquitos. You can say goodbye to sitting in the heat and say hello to cool and bug-free environment.
