How to Choose the Best Upright Fan for Your Outdoor Space

Staying cool when you are outside or working in your garage where there is no air conditioning is possible with the right upright fan. When choosing an outdoor floor fan, there are several factors to consider, including:

  • Are you using the fan in an enclosed or partially enclosed space? To maximize cooling, you may want an oscillating fan that moves back and forth. 
  • How much airflow do you desire? A cooling fan should be able to put out enough air to keep you cool and comfortable.
  • Do you want the fan to also include misting features? Some outdoor fans can be connected to your garden hose to create a misting spray to make you feel even cooler.
  • How many speeds are on the fan? You want a fan that has at least three different speeds.
  • How difficult is it to assemble the fan? Some fans require more assembly than others, so it really depends on your DIY abilities.
  • What is the quality of the materials? You want to invest in higher-quality materials if you intend to use the fan a lot and operate it at its highest speed.
