Benefits of Using a Portable Misting Outdoor Fan

When the weather is sweltering outside and you can’t rely on air conditioning to cool you down, an outdoor misting fan can feel like a lifesaver. These fans use evaporating water’s cooling power to bring relief in hot temperatures, and are also beneficial for the environment. The use of portable misting fans can provide relief and protection from the hot summer sun at virtually any establishment. Read on to learn about the benefits of portable misting fans. 

1. Portability and Comfort

One of the main benefits of portable misting fans is that they can be conveniently used in a wide range of locations. They can be used at home as a less expensive alternative to air conditioners, cutting energy costs. They are also invaluable at large gatherings to help keep crowds cool, making visits to large events in the outdoor heat more comfortable and enjoyable. Portable misting fans can also keep people cool during sporting events, camping outings, or barbecues.

2. Safety

In addition to keeping people comfortable, misting fans keep people safe during the hot summer months. When temperatures soar, people are more at risk of falling ill or even dying from dehydration and heat stroke. However, portable misting fans use the sweat that forms beads on the skin to provide cooling. When a breeze goes over sweat beads, it cools the sweat and helps cool down the body.

3. Beneficial for Sensitive Groups

Children especially benefit from misting fans when they’re playing outside. Children sometimes forget to drink water when they’re busy having fun, which can cause dehydration, but misting fans can help them remain hydrated and cool. These fans are also immensely helpful in keeping animals cool, as animals do not always sweat the same way humans do. For instance, a dog burns heat off its body through its paws or panting. A misting fan can keep family pets or farm animals such as horses comfortable and cool so they don’t become ill or die from the heat.

4. Can Be Used in Industrial Settings

In certain applications, standard industrial misting systems are not the correct option for the job. In this case, portable misting fans can be used both indoors or out. Portable misting fans can be mounted on a wall, trailer, or a cart, depending on where they need to be transported and used. Portable misting fans are durable, rugged, and built for industrial use. These systems can cool large spaces or smaller areas, and can also supply the humidity needed for any type of application.

How Portable Misting Fans Work

Misting fans are comprised of a water supply, tubing, and special misting nozzles. Many larger misting fans also have high-pressure pump. Water is pushed through the nozzles, entering the air as droplets which evaporate when touched by exterior heat and form a light mist. 

Common Places You’ll Find Portable Misting Fans

Many commercial establishments and businesses use portable misting fans during the summer to keep their patrons cool. Theme parks, resorts, major sporting venues, and golf courses also use portable misting fans to keep families cool during events and outdoor activities. 

Some portable misting fans come with a stand that allows them to be conveniently moved from one place to another. This makes them great for special occasions such as family reunions, outdoor wedding receptions, and backyard barbecues. They are also wonderful for company picnics, school fundraisers, or children’s sports tournaments.

How to Find a Portable Misting Fan That’s Right for You

There are many things to consider when purchasing outdoor misting fans. First, how large is the space you wish to cover? Is it a simple backyard deck area where your family dines? Do you entertain often? What’s the average size of your group? High-pressure misting systems are generally used for commercial and industrial purposes, while smaller versions can cool the average backyard patio.

Our low-maintenance portable misting fans are great for moving around on your deck or patio, helping you enjoy the cooling effects of a misting fan all summer long.
