Everything You Need to Know About Misting Fans

All of us look forward to summertime. There is nothing quite like hanging out on an outdoor patio enjoying a pint with friends. On the other hand, there is nothing more unbearable than suffering through that friendly drink in the hot, oppressive heat of the summer. 

Each and every year, countless citizens endure the blistering heat and humidity of summer. The situation is especially worse for those working outdoors in the southern states. Extreme heat and humidity, when not properly managed, can cause dehydration, stroke, and even death. Elderly people and young children are especially susceptible to the effects of intense summer temperatures but, in most cases, they are not the ones laboring in the sun all day. As a responsible employer, it is your duty to provide your workers with a safe and comfortable working environment.

In some areas, it is not uncommon to hear about farm workers adversely affected by heat stroke and dehydration. It happens a lot more than you might think. In many cases, heat stroke and exhaustion in the agricultural sector can be avoided by making a reasonable investment in some of our outdoor mist fans. While it's not exactly practical to try to cool an outdoor work space of any great size, one of our portable outdoor misting fan can provide your farm workers with relief from the heat in the area they happen to be working in. 

If you are in the business of raising livestock, you should also consider how you can benefit from the technology behind outdoor mist fans.

So what is a fan mister, you ask?

A fan mister is a device that releases a fine water mist into the air, and distributes it with a fan. Our fan misters are a cost-effective, reliable alternative to expensive air conditioning systems. Another thing that truly sets our fan mister products apart from traditional air conditioners is the ability to use them outdoors. These units are highly effective at maintaining a comfortable temperature for your outdoor work area or backyard patio, and they cost approximately 80 cents per hour to operate. This is considerably less expensive than the costs associated with operating an air conditioning system.

Our high pressure misting fans are designed with only the highest quality components. The high pressure pump is crafted from stainless steel, and comes equipped with a self-contained filtration system. These pumps output water droplets as small as 10 microns, which flash evaporate upon contact with air, and leave no residual moisture. The quality and craftsmanship of our misting systems is simply unparalleled in the misting fan industry.

As mentioned above, our fan misters can be used both indoors and outdoors. Through our patented misting process, you'll never have to worry about moisture causing damage to your home. The mist from our fans evaporates immediately upon contact with the air, which will keep you both cool and dry on even the hottest days. In our extenshive product line, we have fan misters to meet just about any need. We have large-scale industrial versions, smaller residential versions, and even new portable fan units. If you are looking for a way to stay cool, we can help!

SPOT COOLING SYSTEMS

Instead of covering a broad area (backyard, patio, garden, etc.), a spot cooling system, isolates the cooled area. This means that you can be cooled while enjoying the sun, without wasting extra energy by cooling your entire patio.

Any warehouse can greatly benefit from one of these cooling systems. Air conditioning systems are expensive and not environmentally friendly. They also severely dry out the air, which is uncomfortable for many employees. Not only are these cooling systems more comfortable, but they are much more cost effective, saving businesses hundreds on energy costs during the summer months. It will keep productivity up, while other warehouses fall behind because of heat-induced fatigue. In that sense, a spot cooling may eventually pay for itself in results.

These cooling systems work in the same general manner as other mist systems, except they're portable so you can focus the cooling effects where you need it most. Water is sent through a pump and then distributed through the mist nozzles. This sprays out and cools the people in the direct vicinity of the machine. This is achieved by the circulating air evaporating the perspiration on the skin. The tiny water droplets further cool the skin, leaving you comfortable and generally perspiration-free.

Spot cooling systems are ideal for outdoor tables, recliners, gardens, or anywhere else around the patio. If you don't have a lot of people to cool down and don't want to spend a ton of money on a large mist cooling system, a spot cooling system is ideal for you. There is no hassle in installation and very little maintenance, leaving your body cooler and your wallet fatter.

HOW TO CLEAN A MISTING FAN

Keep your misting fan operating at its best with periodic cleaning and create havens of comfort even during the hottest days of summer. If you have decided to take time to give it a quick clean, good that you've paused. Please read the instructions below and not only keep your fan looking in better shape, but your lungs as well.

    • Unplug the fan from the electrical outlet and shift it to a location cleared of all clutter, may to a large table. Release the grill clips or unscrew the front grill that can be snapped apart. If your fan type comes under the category of irremovable grills, then consider using a can of compressed air.
    • Unbolt the blade cap, if you are able to unscrew, remove the back grill as well. If not you can make use of a small brush to remove the dirt deposition on it.
    • Clean the grill with a mild soapy solution with the help of a sponge. Make use of a soft bristle toothbrush to clean the hard to reach areas.
    • Slide the fan blade off and clean it thoroughly.
    • As you clean the fan with soapy solution, do not forget to clean them with dry cloth and keep it aside to dry out.
    • Replace the fan blade guards after all the parts have dried. Tighten the screws and the fan blade securely.

Nozzle cleaning:

  • Remove the nozzle and tap it slightly on a hard surface to extricate hard water deposits. Step two in this is to remove the ring and soak the nozzle in a suggested nozzle cleaner for 15 to 30 minutes. Then wipe it with a dry cloth, you can also make use of small pins to remove the debris if any and then dry it. When turned on, no visible water must be coming out of the nozzles, if so then make sure that you have fastened it tight, else you may need to replace it.
  • Well, now you are done! In case if you experience any shuttering when turned on, then it is good to call the experts and get professional advice.
  • Finally, remember, not all cleaning materials are appropriate, always consider using the highly recommended nozzle cleaner, and pump oil suggested by the wholesaler/retailer you buy. We at cool-off recommend using our own nozzle cleaner approved by the FDA. It combats rust and is proven to be efficient.

Not just pedestal, but all fan types are susceptible to dirt and debris build-up. Apart from the outer casing, the blades are also prone to dust deposition. Hence, a periodic cleaning along with regular maintenance every two years is highly recommended to avoid clogging and slow performance. Note: misting fans differ from one model to another; please refer the user manual of your model to come up with specific instructions of cleaning.
