Solent fans can be used on verandas and patios; however the fan must be completely under cover. Exposure to water spray or rain will cause the ceiling fans to rust and damage sooner as they are not waterproof and exposure to wind will cause the fan to sway as they are free hanging.
How easy is the ceiling fan to install - is it something I can do myself or does it require a certified technician?
We do recommend that the ceiling fan be installed by a certified technician/electrician. Take note that the warranty becomes void and does not apply if the fan is installed by someone that is not a certified technician/electrician.
