Summer is a time for enjoying the outdoors. It is great to sit outside and enjoy the sun, the shade, the garden and everything that nature offers. Yet, when it is too hot and the humidity creeps upwards, being outside can lose its appeal. This is when the fans come out but they can be ineffective, unless you have an outdoor mist fan.

All of us look forward to summertime. There is nothing quite like hanging out on an outdoor patio enjoying a pint with friends. On the other hand, there is nothing more unbearable than suffering through that friendly drink in the hot, oppressive heat of the summer. Outdoor mist fans can provide your customers with the much-needed reprieve from the heat they deserve.

What Is an Outdoor Mist Fan?

An outdoor mist fan is a simple form of cooling system that has been increasing in popularity since the early 1990s. At that point, it was being used to help cool down athletes during sports meets by “misting” them. Outdoor mist fans combine the use of a fan with a cooling source (water) and nozzles or sprays. Depending upon its size and shape it can be very effective in reducing the temperature of the air in its area by as much as 30°.

They not only cool down those who fall within its parameters, they also reduce those pesky insects without having to resort to chemicals. At the same time, in arid parts of the United States, an outdoor mist fan can help eliminate dust as well as odors. This makes it a very versatile device.

What to Look for in an Outdoor Mist Fan

Not all outdoor mist fans are created equal. Like many other products, there are some that are of higher quality. It is up to you to do the research that will lead you to the outdoor mist fan that meets your standards. To look online at reviews of the specific models and follow up to ensure they are unbiased and reflective of the product. It is also very important that you choose the right type – one that converges with your requirements, expectations and needs.

Consider what you want from an outdoor mist fan. Among the most probable qualities and requirements, you should include the following as part of your list:

* Size: Size does matter. It is important the size of the mist fan is capable of addressing the needs of the size and shape of the space in which you intend to place it.
* Portability: Misting systems are not as portable as an outdoor mist fan. Remember to make sure you choose a fan that can be easily transported outdoors and put into place without difficulty and major compromises
* Water Pressure: The water fan and pressure must be in balance. If you plan on using high water pressure and, therefore crate a finer mist, you will need a more powerful fan than you would with low pressure water.
* Fan Capability: The size of the fan is usually indicative of what water pressure it is able to handle. You have to make certain however, that quality is not sacrificed in the name of bigger is better

In the end, all these aspects need to work together. The outdoor mist fan must be balanced if you are not only to receive the product you want, but also if it is to perform its job effectively.
