For many people living in regions with high humidity, it seems as though nothing will take the moisture out of the air but in truth, humidity fans can help. These fans are made specifically for humid places. In addition to functionality, you will still enjoy smooth contours, great style, and easy operation regardless of the room in which the fan is used.
You will actually find a number of brands that make humidity fans such as Casablanca. For instance, a three-speed fan is a popular choice, featuring a UL rating for damp or humid locations. When buying your fan, we suggest you go with one that offers a direct drive motor with a 30-year warranty. You will also find a number of blade sizes although 40 and 50-inch seem to be the best sellers.
Humidity fans also come with all-weather ABS blades in many cases or you can pay a little bit extra if not. Additionally, humidity fans have a moisture resistant motor with stainless steel hardware. In fact, even the hardware is stainless steel, which keeps the fan protected from the high levels of humidity. When buying this type of fan, make sure you choose only a UL damp or UL wet rated light kit.
Just as you would with other fans, humidity fans come in a wide range of styles, sizes, and materials. For instance, you might choose a white fan for a cottage porch, nursery, or bedroom whereas brushed nickel would create a more sophisticated look for a formal dining room, living room, or den. In addition, the blades are available in many different options such as rustic iron, black matte, bleached oak, classic white, weathered pine, and more.
With humidity fans, both the fan and light fixture is specially designed so they can handle direct exposure to the elements. Although you would not hang a fan outdoors or in a location where it would get wet, this means it can operate with high levels of humidity without being damaged. For the installation of a humidity fan, the outlet box has to be recessed and then mounted to the six-inch side of a 4x6 wooden beam.
