Outdoor Ceiling Fans - Urban Ambiance

Outdoor Ceiling Fans: All Your Questions Answered


Outdoors ceiling fans make a statement for any home while providing a cooling breeze during those hot summer days. They are also great for circulating air around your patio, gazebo, or deck, making your outdoor living space more comfortable. With so many different styles and sizes to choose from, it's easy to find the perfect fan for your home.
But before you start browsing the best ceiling fans for your outdoor space, you need to understand a few things about how they work and what features to look for. Here are some common questions to consider before buying a ceiling fan for outdoor use. 

Can you put a ceiling fan outside?

You can put a ceiling fan outside, but not all are designed for outdoor use. Ceiling fans designed for outdoor spaces can withstand humidity, moisture, sunlight, and even salt air without rusting or corroding.
Fans designed for outdoor use have blades made from weather-resistant materials. Their motor is sealed to protect against the elements. They must be made with high-quality materials to enable them last longer.

What is the difference between an outdoor and indoor ceiling fan?

Ceiling fans are rated for either indoor or outdoor use. The ones made for indoor use cannot work well outdoors and vice versa.
  • Dry-rated ceiling fans are for indoor use and cannot be exposed to moisture.

  • Damp-rated fans can handle humidity but should be protected from direct exposure to water.

  • Wet-rated ceiling fans are rated for wet locations and are safe to use in any outdoor space, including covered patios and porches. 

Outdoor ceiling fans have a waterproof rating. They can withstand moisture and humidity, as well as direct sunlight. Indoor fans do not have this rating and should be used indoors only.

How do you tell if a ceiling fan can be used outdoors?

When choosing an outdoor ceiling fan, make sure to pick one that is rated for outdoor use. These fans are made to withstand the elements and will last longer than an indoor fan. 
Many outdoor fans are also damp-rated, which means they can handle moisture but should be protected from direct exposure to water. Wet-rated ceiling fans can get wet and are safe to use in any outdoor space, including covered patios and porches. 

Which is better: Ceiling or wall fans?

Both ceiling and wall fans work by circulating air to create a cooling effect. Ceiling fans can cool larger spaces more effectively than wall fans. This is because they're always centrally located, making them draw air from all directions.
Wall fans are less obtrusive and can be used in smaller spaces. They're not suitable for cooling larger spaces because they're mounted in one corner of the room. But they can be used in addition to ceiling fans to cool very large spaces. 

Is a patio ceiling fan worth it?

Patio ceiling fans cool the outdoor area during a hot day and offer a cool evening breeze to the house. The fans make your daytime and evening gathering comfortable and enjoyable. In addition, they help repel mosquitoes, bugs, and other insects. These fans are more energy-efficient than air conditioners. With all these benefits,  a patio ceiling fan is definitely worth it.

What are the benefits of an outdoor ceiling fan?

Outdoor ceiling fans offer a lot of benefits to homeowners. Here are just a few benefits that the fans bring:

They are decorative

The decorative elements of ceiling fans make them a great addition to any patio or porch. They can add a touch of elegance and class to any outdoor space.

Help you save money

Ceiling fans help you save money on your energy bills. The fans use less energy than air conditioners, and they can circulate the cool air around the room more efficiently.

Protection from flying bugs

Bugs such as mosquitoes are attracted to the light, heat, and movement that ceiling fans produce. By having a fan in your outdoor space, you can keep these pests away from your guests.

Ceiling fans help you stay cool

Outdoor ceiling fans can help you stay cool on hot summer days by providing cool airflow. The fans circulate the air around the room, which can help you feel cooler.

Ceiling fans improve air quality

Ceiling fans can improve the air quality in your outdoor space. The fans circulate the air, which can help to remove pollen and dust from the air.

Additional Light

Today‘s outdoor ceiling fans typically do not have pull chains, rather they are controlled by a remote control and can provide additional lighting for a patio or porch. Some versions are also compatible with a wall control which means you can use both a handheld remote while sitting in your chair and also control it when inside. Make sure when looking for outdoor ceiling fans you check to see if they include light kits, ideally with led lights, which are both long lasting and energy efficient as well.

What is the best ceiling fan for the outdoors?

A good ceiling fan for outdoor use should be weather-resistant and able to withstand the elements. You should also consider the size of the fan and the CFM (cubic feet per minute) rating.
It's also important to consider the blades. The blades should be made of a durable material that can withstand the elements and won't rust over time. 
Depending on the height of your patio or porch ceiling, you may look for ceiling fans with downrods which allow you to adjust the height or low profile, flush mount ones (also known as hugger fans) which are ideal for low ceiling heights.
In regards to functionality, consider fans with dc motors as they include remote controls and many are energy star compliant. These types of fans often utilize led bulbs when a led light kit is included and have reversible motors to allow for proper airflow depending on the season.

What is the best outdoor ceiling fan for a porch?

The best ceiling fan for a porch should fit your home's style. If you live in a farmhouse, consider a rustic fan. If you have a modern home, look for a sleek, contemporary fan with modern forms. For a beach house, try a nautical-themed fan. If you’re in the country, consider a modern farmhouse fan.
Popular finishes for outdoor fans are matte black, brushed nickel, and oil rubbed bronze. For those that include light kits, you’ll want a led ceiling fan that is also dimmable. This will give you a chance to control the lighting ambiance while enjoying your porch or patio. For the tech savvy, there are also smart ceiling fan options which can connect to your other smart devices.
If you do your research, you'll always find something that suits every type of home. Just make sure it's damp-rated or wet rated one to avoid any accidents.

What size ceiling fan should I use for my patio?

The size of your ceiling fan should correspond to the size of your patio. If you have a small patio, you'll need a smaller fan. For a large patio, you'll need a larger fan.
You should also consider the height of your ceiling when choosing a fan size. A higher ceiling will require a longer downrod to properly circulate air, while a lower ceiling can use a shorter downrod.
Finally, the blade span of your ceiling fan is also important. A larger blade span will move more air and be more effective at cooling your space. Also, many fans now include reversible blades which give you the opportunity to select the blade finish that best fits the style and ambiance of your space.

How many blades on an outdoor ceiling fan is best?

The efficient number of fan blades for an outdoor ceiling fan is three. This number of blades provides good airflow while also being energy efficient. Those with four to six blades offer quieter operation but are not as energy efficient. Those with less than three blades don't move enough air to provide effective cooling.
