Outdoor ceiling fans

Outdoor ceiling fans are perfect for Australia’s warmer regions although even cooler areas can benefit from their use in the warmer months. They look great positioned on Verandas, patios and pergolas and provide a constant cooling breeze. Outdoor ceiling fans do need to be installed by a qualified electrician.

Types of outdoor ceiling fans:

  • AC outdoor ceiling fans: AC outdoor ceiling fans are generally less expensive than the DC variety. They have been around longer so often have more variety in style and can be controlled by a wall switch. Some DC fans can only be operated by a remote control.
  • DC outdoor ceiling fans: DC outdoor ceiling fans generally use less electricity and an array of magnets. They can run a lot quieter compared to the traditional AC variety and cause less wear on the motor. As a consequence of the added technology they do tend to be a little more expensive than AC.
  • Metal blades: Outdoor ceiling fans are exposed to the elements a little more. Metal housing and blades stand up to the elements quite well but if in coastal areas, 316 grade (marine grade) stainless steel or marine grade aluminium should be used .
  • ABS blades: ABS blades are perfect for outdoor ceiling fans as they do not rust and are quite resistant to accidental knocks. The ABS blades are also very quiet and are often moulded into aesthetically pleasing styles with the great air movement capacity.
