An Outdoor Ceiling Fan Adds Comfort

If you are looking to cool off your porch, an outdoor ceiling fan is a breath of fresh air! Dave and I love porch fans. They keep the air moving and fresh.

It's amazing what a little breeze can do to make you feel cooler and enjoy your porch a little while longer. A ceiling fan or pedestal fan (a fan on a stand) can be a big help.



Combine a ceiling fan with an outdoor misting system and you can cool your porch at least 25 degrees!

Some ceiling fans also come with a light kit - gives you extra light for evenings on the porch.
