Do I need a damp-rated outdoor ceiling fan? 

A damp-rated ceiling fan is a fan that is built to withstand moisture and humidity but should not come into direct contact with the elements. If you plan to install your ceiling fan in a covered outdoor living area, such as a pergola, gazebo, deck, patio, or veranda, it must be damp-rated and ETL-certified for outdoor use. Enjoy comfortable cooling and versatile lighting for years to come with the help of a Smafan Outdoor Fan! Perfect for covered porches and sunrooms, Smafan offers a wide range of outdoor ceiling fans, all of which are created with premium materials, a damp rating, and an ETL certification to ensure safe and seamless performance in any outdoor living space. 

Select from Smafan outdoor fans with/ without lights

Smafan has many outdoor fans to choose from, including outdoor fans with and without lighting, for the perfect fit and functionality in any space. For those who just want to add cooling airflow to their outdoor area, Smafan offers high-velocity and powerful CFM ceiling fans without light. These fans are subtle and deliver strong air speeds to blend seamlessly into your existing decor and lighting. For those who want fine-tuned control of their cooling and lighting, Smafan offers outdoor fans featuring LED lighting that allows you to alternate between three color temperatures and fully dim the lighting from 100% to 1%. To ensure the right fit, you must also select the proper mounting type; flush mount for low-profile patios or an extended downrod for high and slightly sloped ceilings.
