The top 10 Best Outdoor fans released in the last 12 months - Updated for January 2021
Exteriors can benefit from fans just as much as interiors. Pergola fans provide cooling for outdoor areas, and create an ideal environment for either entertaining or relaxation. There is a diverse range of ceiling fans suitable for outdoor installation and we've picked out our favourite five. This list includes top performing models and a diverse range of colours and sizes.
#1 - AQUA DC CEILING FAN
✓ IP rating- highest possible for ceiling fans! ✓ Modern Design ✓ Light Option ✓ Size Options ✓ Colour Options ✓ Energy Efficient
-"The airflow is just incredible, and it’s really cheap to run!." -
Last year, Hunter Pacific gave us a world first, the Aqua DC, a ceiling fan with an IP66 rating. This innovation provided piece of mind for outdoor installations, because it means that the fan is protected against both dust and water. This summer, the Aqua is even better. It’s now available in either a 52 or 70-inch size. Not only is the Aqua DC the fan with the most protection against weather, it’s incredibly energy efficient too. Its 19-watt motor powers an impressive airflow in either size. This sort of air movement is great for outdoor areas in warm weather. The fan is also compatible with Hunter Pacific’s innovative wall control accessory, as well as the angled ceiling mount.

It comes in two sizes, and is available either with or without a light, allowing you to select a model with the features which best suit your needs.

Both sized fans in this range are capable of producing excellent airflow, enough to cool an outdoor area.
