One of the best features of my house is the outside patio in the backyard that overlooks the swimming pool.
During the summertime, my kids and I use that space all day long and we often invite guests over to join us.
The outdoor patio is small, only fitting a small kitchen and table, but it’s functional. Since we spend so much time out there during the warmer months, I wanted to add fans. The space was too small to put portable fans out there though because they would take up too much floor space. Where the outlets were located on the wall, the fan would have to sit on the table or block the walkway, which I didn’t want. As I was researching fans for outdoor spaces, I discovered wall mounted fans. There was a wide variety of wall mounted fans at the local hardware store and I was excited about the options. I wanted something that would last and be easy to use. Because of this, it was really important for me to find a fan that came with a remote control. Once the wall mounted fans arrived, I asked my husband to install them for me. According to him, it was easy to install and he was really impressed that I had thought to buy such a thing. After the fans were all hooked up, I played around with the remote to see if it would work. There was a tiny sensor at the bottom of the fan that I needed to point the remote at, but it worked well! I’m so glad I found the wall mounted fans because they make a positive difference on the patio without taking up space.
