The hot summer temperatures in your area will drive you inside or in the pool, but you can stay outside using the special misting fans and misting tents created for home use. You have seen large misting systems at sports stadiums, but these systems are designed for home use. You may place a portable misting fan in your backyard, and all your guests will rest in cool comfort during your summer parties. This article explores how these fans work, how to set up the tents and when to make best use of these systems. #1: What Is A Misting Fan? A large misting fan using air power to blow cool water vapor over a large area. The fans alone are several feet in diameter, and you may adjust the speed of the fan to meet your needs. The lowest setting on each fan will calmly blow water vapor in your face, and the highest setting on the fan will blow the mist over a large area. You may cover a small backyard with just one fan, or you can blow the water vapor into an enclosed deck.
