Summer days are a great time to be outside enjoying the gorgeous Florida weather, but on especially balmy days, it can be a bit uncomfortable. Your patio or deck is a place to relax and unwind in comfort. You don’t want to be sitting there sweating and feeling icky. An outdoor ceiling fan can add a level of comfort outside that you will appreciate.
You will need to choose a fan based on where the fan will be hung and where you live. If you live near the ocean, you will need a fan designed to withstand the salty air. If your fan will be hung from a covered patio or deck and will not be directly exposed to the rain or snow, you can purchase a “damp” fan. If the fan is exposed to the elements, you will need a “wet” fan.
Wet fans are designed to prevent the electrical components from getting wet and shorting out. The wires are enclosed in a sealed, water-proof casing and the blades are made of a material that will not warp from the moisture. Your electrician in West Palm Beach can help you choose the right fan. Elcon Electric has the trained and experienced staff you need to install the outdoor ceiling fan.
Because of the special electrical needs of an outdoor ceiling fan, it is crucial you allow a trained professional complete the job. Whenever you are putting anything electrical outside, it needs to be correctly and up to code. Although it may seem like a simple enough job, it is something that should be left to a West Palm Beach electrician.
If you would like to enjoy the outdoors this summer without the excruciating heat and swarms of bugs, give Elcon Electric a call. We would love to talk with you more about your outdoor ceiling fan option.
