How Can I Benefit from an Outdoor Mist Fan?

By October 14, 2015February 16th, 2020No Comments

Thanks to modern technology, regulating your indoor air has never been easier. However, many home and business owners don’t realize how easy it is to also keep their outdoor areas cool during the balmy summer months. An outdoor mist fan from Fogco Systems Inc. is a convenient and cost-effective tool for making any outdoor space more comfortable and inviting during the hottest times of the year.

What is an Outdoor Mist Fan?

These fans have been utilized for decades to cool outdoor spaces. They can potentially reduce your outdoor temperature by 40 degrees Fahrenheit without causing a noticeable rise in the area’s relative humidity. Now that certainly will provide comfort on a hot and humid day. These systems can be used in a wide range of settings, including patios, waterfalls, fountains and golf facilities. They are also useful on tennis courts, in arenas, at theme parks, in restaurants and at resorts and hotels.

How Does the Outdoor Mist Fan Work?

At 1,000 psi, a high-pressure fan can produce water droplets that are as tiny as five-millionths of a meter. With the droplets being so small, “flash evaporation” takes place, and this decreases your outdoor area’s ambient temperature. The process is known as thermal dynamics, and it is effective in that energy is required for water to evaporate. The energy exchange that takes place with the mist fan leads to immediate outdoor cooling.

How Effective are Outdoor Mist Fans?

How effective your outdoor cooling system is depends on multiple factors, including the current air exchange rate, humidity levels and existing temperature. You may experience drastic results if you have low levels of humidity—below 50 percent—and temperatures greater than 80 degrees Fahrenheit. This is particularly true if air exchange is constant on your patio or other outdoor space. In addition, the evaporation of a greater amount of moisture leads to greater cooling capability.

Fogco Systems Inc. offers a Revolution Series fan that is actually effective not only for outdoor applications but also for indoor ones. Our experts can assist you in obtaining the type of system that will meet your unique outdoor cooling needs from one summer to the next.
