Outdoor ceiling fans. Ceiling fans are great additions to outdoor spaces as well, providing a cooling breeze in the heat of summer. When shopping for fans, you’ll see that they are rated to withstand dry, damp or wet conditions. For an outdoor space, such as under a porch or pergola, a ceiling fan that is rated for wet conditions is necessary. “Wet location fans can actually sit in the rain or get hosed off, since they are fully contained and their blades won’t warp or get damaged from the sun,” Halcovich says. Ceiling fans rated for damp conditions can be used in bathrooms, carports or anywhere that may have moisture but no direct contact with water or the elements.
