THIS little puppy BLOWS!!
It's an outdoor fan - the best I've ever purchased. It's an outdoor misting fan but I never use the mist. Black girls don't like their hair to get wet, you see!! :) My den leads out to the patio/backyard - so in addition to the Privacy Screen/Divider posted above, there's a large awning that covers the patio. In Texas, the summer heat can be brutal. But I LOVE being on the patio in the morning and as the sun sets. I bought this fan because of its compact size and because it sits on the floor and, of course, because it's a heavy duty commercial fan that can 'live' outside - no pulling in and out! I had the first one for about 1 year before I bought the second (wanted blasts of air blowing in multiple directions). They've been outside through several storms, cold, heat, rain, whatever.... And they still work as perfectly as the day I bought them. YES... they are a bit expensive ($120.00 ea) but if you've bought outdoor fans before, you know the $50.00 version doesn't last very long. Because this model is well built, I call it hefty, I don't expect to have to buy another outdoor fan for years to come!
