The combination of a gentle breeze and our misting systems makes Fogco patio misting fans a great idea for a residential outdoor space or a commercial patio or deck. Our misting systems can be found in homes across the country as well as in resorts, restaurants, cafés, sports bars, and even in outdoor sporting event venues and hotel outdoor seating locations.

Tips to Maximize Cooling Effectiveness

Often, there is a misconception about how our patio misting fans can be used most effectively. To provide some guidelines and assistance in maximizing their potential cooling ability, here are some simple tips to keep in mind.

  • Air circulation is not required – with typical misting systems the natural movement of the air through the cooling process requires continual air flow to provide the maximum cooling effect. With the use of our patio misting fans the air is moved down to the surface by the fan, which means these fans are more effective even if there is not direct natural air circulation.
  • Consider obstructions – while our misting fans are designed for a specific square footage, this is open space square footage. If your patio has different areas that are divided by walls or other types of obstructions that limit air movement, it will also reduce the square footage of coverage.
  • Don’t stretch the square footage – if you want to be able to use all of your outdoor living space, don’t stretch the coverage of the misting fans. For example, if you have a 1000-foot area with one or two walls or dividers, a more effective option may be to choose 3 of the 400 square foot fans rather than one of the 900 square foot coverage models.

Add Style to Your Outdoor Living Space

If you have always admired that southern look of a large porch or covered patio or deck area with the big overhead fans, our WindChill Patio Cooling Mist Fan is a perfect addition to any covered patio area, and it will definitely add to the comfort and the style of your outdoor space. These patio misting fans are a must for anyone who enjoys spending time outdoors in the summer. The ability to not only provide air circulation but to actually cool the air through the misting system makes them a great addition to any home or commercial property.

These are a perfect addition to a restaurant or bar or for commercial outdoor seating areas. These classic looking fans also are very complimentary for a home patio, seating area or even an outdoor kitchen space. They also add temperature control to allow you to enjoy your gazebo or the area around a pool.

The Look

These patio misting fans come in a variety of different styles. We offer a very modern looking fan to a very traditional look. Colors and options include combinations of colors such as gold, brown and earthy and natural color combinations that will blend in well with any type of design and décor.

We also offer different powder coating options, giving you custom colors to coordinate with your outdoor design. Additionally, there are custom appliqués that are available with the fans, enhancing their design and providing an amazing look.

Our design includes a revolutionary deflector plate which allows for adjustment of the flow of air. With the air flow in place, the cool air from the evaporative process can be directed right where you want it and cooling up to 900 square feet of space.

We also offer smaller models for up to 400 square feet, providing a truly wonderful experience that will allow you to enjoy your outdoor space even in the heat of the summer.

The Cooling Factor

Each of the fans is equipped with 10 misting nozzles that encircle the base of the fan, hidden from view in the housing. This releases the very fine mist of water that drops the ambient temperature and allows for the cool air to blow and cool the entire area.

With our patio misting fans, you can use the standard 12” down-rod or request a custom length to position the fans at the optimal height. This creates a unique look that simply isn’t possible with other misting systems, or cooling fan combinations.

Our team of designers can help you determine the optimal configuration for placing the fans given your patio or deck area. We can also help with choosing the correct nozzles and system to give you the cool outdoor space you have been looking forward to enjoying. To learn more, call us at 800-607-6478.
