If you are fortunate enough to live in a warm climate but you find some days the heat can be a little much, consider an outdoor ceiling fan. They are specifically designed to withstand humidity, dust, heat and cold so you need not worry about the operation of the fan as long as it is installed properly. To enhance comfort and convenience some of the accessories available include remote controls and ceiling fan outdoor light kits.
Not as popular as indoor fans, outdoor fans are little harder to find, and when you do find them you will notice that the selection of color and styles available is somewhat limited. If you are looking for lights for your outdoor fan try this to help with your search. If you are using Google to do your research online, add quotations at the beginning and end of your search term. For example you would enter it just like this in the search box “ceiling fan lights outdoor”. By doing this it will filter the results and only return results with that exact phrase; if you like you can change the words around but keep your main words in between the quotations.
As you do your research you will want to make sure that both the ceiling fan and lights are UL rated for outdoor use. This will help to ensure that your fan can withstand the environment in which it is installed and function properly and safely. I suggest that it you are purchasing a ceiling fan for outdoor use that you buy the light kit at the same time, one that is made specifically for that make and model. Mixing and matching fan light kits with other ceiling fans may not provide the best protection from the elements. The smallest gap or opening could let dust and or moisture in which could limit the life of your ceiling fan and may void the warranty.
Ceiling fan outdoor light kits provide comfortable lighting with a nice cool breeze on those hot summer evenings relaxing on the patio. To help get the most enjoyment out of your fan and light kit, again, I would recommend that you buy an outdoor ceiling fan that is factory built with the outdoor light kit included. By purchasing both pieces together you will help ensure that all the parts fit together properly and are rated appropriately for the use it was attended. And if a warranty issue should arise it may make things a little easier when dealing with the manufacturer.
