Summer time is the best time of year to enjoy the great outdoors—especially if you have an outdoor patio, deck, garden area, etc. The warm weather is always inviting, but it can be dangerous, too. A heat stroke can affect humans and pets if they are exposed to high temperatures, humidity, and direct sunlight for long periods of time.

However, this doesn’t have to be the case. The outdoors should be enjoyed by people and pets alike. Patio cooling and OUTDOOR COOLING SYSTEMS help people and their pets stay refreshed and cool on hot summer days.

Patio Mist Cooling 

There’s nothing more relaxing than enjoying time by the pool or lounging on the patio or deck. But on warm or hot days, it’s not always possible. Misting systems have been used for decades to help keep outdoor areas cool and make time outside more enjoyable.

Patio misting systems spray water in extremely fine droplets. They can reduce outdoor temperatures by 30 degrees without condensation or creating a wet environment. Mist cooling systems are designed to spruce up and cool down your patio, deck, backyard garden area, private tennis courts, and more. Misting fans can also be a great idea for residential outdoor spaces or commercial patios or decks in many industries: 

  • Resorts
  • Restaurants
  • Cafés
  • Sports bars
  • Outdoor sporting event venues
  • Hotel outdoor seating locations

A patio misting system can quickly cool temperatures down so that you can actually enjoy your patio—an extension of your indoor living space—more often during the year. It also offers the benefit of controlling allergens in the area, such as dust mites and pollen, thus helping to decrease your allergy symptoms. This type of system is also useful as an insect repellant, helping to keep flying insects around your home at bay.

PATIO MISTING SYSTEMS can also be used in many other applications. For instance, they can be placed in an enclosed environment such as a greenhouse, where they increase the humidity level and thus benefit your plants. Food stores can also benefit from these systems if they must keep certain items fresh. Product vendors can benefit from these systems if they operate outdoors as well, as the systems essentially add air conditioning to their environments.

Outdoor Cooling Systems

Outdoor cooling systems 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. These systems can be used in a wide range of settings: 

  • Waterfalls
  • Fountains 
  • Golf facilities
  • Tennis courts
  • Arenas
  • Theme parks
  • Restaurants 
  • Resorts and hotels

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, which means that energy is required for water to evaporate. The energy exchange that takes place with the mist fan leads to immediate outdoor cooling.

The effectiveness of your outdoor cooling system 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 Patio Misting and Outdoor Cooling Systems

Fans and cooling systems are ideal for controlling outdoor environments with light misting techniques. Models such as the WINDCHILL PATIO COOLING FAN and the Revolution and Revolution II humidification fan have become increasingly popular, especially during the summer months.

Fans like our WindChill can be mounted outdoors as a cooling fan for the patio or deck. It mounts just like a regular ceiling fan and blends into the design of the room—allowing customers to enjoy its features without having to look at any additional bulky equipment or distracting machinery.

If you’re looking for something a little more versatile that can be used both indoors and outdoors, our Revolution series might be a good fit for you. This series of cooling systems and fans work great for multi-season rooms and screened in porches. They can spruce up the room while also providing cooler temperature and less humidity. Enjoy your porch, decks, and patios again with the added benefits of a cooling system! To learn more, call us at 800-607-6478.
