The Best Option: Outdoor Misting System

January 9th, 2017 | Posted by Gary Wintering

Everyone loves the summer, but those hot summer afternoons and evenings can make it difficult to enjoy time outside. Outdoor misting fans can cool down your outdoor area, while bringing a touch of southern charm to any outdoor living space.

Popular in theme parks and other public areas, outdoor misting systems can be both efficient and comfortable. Foolproof and cost-efficient, misting systems can make summer barbecues and outdoor get-togethers more enjoyable for the entire family.

How Misting Systems Work

High-quality outdoor misting fans are designed to deliver an incredibly fine mist, or a fog, which contains individual water droplets that are just microns in size. As the water is forced out of the nozzles, fine droplets are formed. When the drops of water come in contact with the hot, dry air, flash evaporation occurs.

The evaporation process draws heat from the surrounding air, dropping the ambient temperature by as much as forty degrees. The fan then blows this cooled air down and over the surrounding space, creating a cooling effect without a direct breeze or the annoying noise of those large outdoor box fan units.

Installing an outdoor cooling system is a simple and cost-effective way to expand the use of your outdoor living space. This is true for a residential home, a restaurant, coffee shop, hotel, resort or community center. It is also an ideal option for a park or a landscaped area in a commercial building.

If you haven’t seen our patio cooling fans yet, you will be amazed at how these will add a real sense of style and décor to your deck, patio, gazebo, pergola or outdoor kitchen area. They are able to cover up to 900 square feet with a single fan, making them an extremely cost-effective addition for the space.

At Fogco, our outdoor systems are designed to provide the optimal size of water droplets and the ideal mist production to decrease the ambient temperature. Our systems can be installed under covered areas such as patios, pergolas, or gazebos or they can be designed and customized to blend into the landscape or work with a variety of different misting pillars and stands in open areas.

The Benefits of Misting Systems

 

  • Cost-efficient and energy-efficient: Contrary to popular belief, misting units are much more water- and energy-efficient than traditional cooling methods. It takes about 75 gallons of water to power an air conditioner, whereas an outdoor misting system needs less than a fourth of that to get the job done. 

 

 

  • Easy to maintain: When installed properly, outdoor misting systems can be low-maintenance and long-lasting. Once you have decided what your system will look like and where it will be placed, the installation and maintenance are relatively hassle-free. Should your system ever give you any issues, we offer a lifetime guarantee for free phone assistance as well as a network of mechanics that you can consult for repairs.

 

 

  • Concealed plumbing: Outdoor misting systems can be designed to conceal piping, plumbing, and nozzles. This adds to the aesthetic appeal of the outdoor space and minimizes any visibility of the plumbing. High-quality misting pumps are designed to be extremely quiet and, like the pipes and plumbing, they can be strategically hidden within the landscaping or out of sight from the area.

 

 

  • Special effects: In addition to amazing cooling performance, outdoor misting systems can also be used to create special effects. It is possible to produce the look of fog over a pond or water feature in a residential yard or a commercial property. This is also a terrific option cascading down a retaining wall or along the border of landscaped area.

 

Options for Systems

At Fogco we can provide a customized approach to an OUTDOOR COOLING SYSTEM for both residential and commercial properties. This allows our design team, working with the client, to provide just the look that is perfect for the given location.

For example, around a pool deck area, mist can be used at the deck level to give an amazing diffused look at the surface of the pool and the surrounding deck. This can be enhanced by underwater or overhead lights.

Systems using columns or pillar types of misters are perfect for walkways, sidewalks or for seating areas in the landscape. Misters along the interior roof of patios and gazebos provide instant relief from the heat without the need for high powered fans.

Designs and Options

This series of outdoor misting fans comes in a range of different designer treatments. Each of the fans is powder-coated, which means they will stand up to outdoor use without rusting or corroding. 

They come in a range of different colors including brown, black and tan. Various design elements will work with any patio, outdoor kitchen, living space, color scheme or design theme.

While the operational specs for the system are always critical, it is also important to consider the aesthetics. There are several factors to keep in mind, all which provide a different look or style to the system without compromising cooling potential.

The design team at Fogco has the experience to create just the look you want. Just give us your ideas and we can turn them into reality.
