How Do Indoor & Outdoor Fans Differ?
While dry-rated ceiling fans are ideal for cooling down your home efficiently, the blades and other mechanical features aren’t designed for outdoor areas, such as a porch or covered patio. Instead, you’ll need a wet-rated or damp-rated option that can handle moisture, rainstorms, and dampness. By checking a fan’s rating and considering factors like the wiring and materials, you can choose one that works for your needs, whether indoors or outdoors. Here is a guide to the various ratings so you can make an informed purchasing decision.
The Rating System
There are three primary ratings.
- Dry-Rated ceiling fans can only be installed inside the home in dry locations.
- Damp-Rated fans are for outdoor covered areas or indoors where there is moisture.
- Wet-Rated fans can be used anywhere indoors or outdoors, even in the rain or snow.
The materials and design determine the rating. For example, a wet-rated fan must be water-tight to protect the motor, lights, and sensitive wiring against harsh weather conditions.

Not to mention the maintenance it requires to clean and upkeep a fireplace–having to constantly take out the burnt ashes, sweeping the chimney and making sure the space around the area is tidy.
