Outdoor Ceiling Fan- Series-2
The installation continues without any trouble at all, in fact you will notice through my comments that I was quite impressed with this outdoor ceiling fan.
I was especially impressed when I realized that not only are these ceiling fans constructed to withstand weather conditions such as moisture, but provision has been made to reduce insect penetration as well.
Safety Note: If the outdoor ceiling fan is accessible and you are using the pull chain to operate it while being in contact with a grounded surface, or if the ceiling fan is within 5 feet of the inside wall of a hot tub or spa then GFCI protection is required.
|While I was on the ground getting ready to install the light fixture kit I couldn't help notice how there was a wood grain design that was clearly vi sable which helped the appearance of this outdoor ceiling fan.|
|The fixture mounted easily and I paid close attention to the sockets which stated the light bulb watt limitation which would prevent damaging the light fixture enclosure.|
|I must say that I was really impressed with the design features of this outdoor ceiling fan, even special provision was made to make sure the pull chain light switch would be totally accessible.|
|The light fixture covering was again made of a plastic material and fit nice and snug which will prevent insects from finding their way inside the warm and bright light fixture enclosure.|
|Now just to add the decorative pull chain devices and we are just about ready to flip on the switch.|
|Wow - I like it!
This outdoor ceiling fan is a winner with me and my client. The light fixture provided good illumination for the area, the fan did not wobble and the level of noise was really low, even at high speed.
|This outdoor ceiling fan really complements this patio area and will bring a lot of enjoyment for years to come.|
