Chances are, you use indoor ceiling fans on a fairy regular basis. This is most likely because they help to increase air circulation and lower energy bills while creating a much more comfortable environment inside of our homes and other buildings. Outdoor ceiling fan installations provide many of the same benefits that indoor ceiling fans provide. One key additional benefit that you get with an outdoor ceiling fan is pest control. In addition to the breeze created by the downdraft, outdoor fans create an area that is difficult for many bugs to fly through, helping you keep them out of your patio or outdoor living space.
The general form and function of indoor and outdoor ceiling fans is essentially the same. There are, however, a number of differences. Because an outdoor fan must be outside at all times, it must be built to withstand wind, sun, cold and humidity. If used outdoors, an indoor fixture would very quickly rust and deteriorate because it is just not designed to handle this type of environment. All outdoor ceiling fan installations should be performed by an electrician in West Palm Beach. This will help to ensure that all of the wiring and hardware is properly and securely fashioned.
There are many different varieties of ceiling fan available. At Elcon Electric, we regularly see any number of shapes, sizes and colors that are designed to work with almost any decorating scheme or personal style. If you need help choosing a size or style of fan, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We would be more than happy to direct you to a number of different options. Once you make your choice, we can send a highly trained professional out to do the installation.
