    Using Misting Fans to Keep Your Houseplants Healthy This Winter

    For many people, houseplants are almost pets. You worry about them when you go on vacation, ask your friends to look in on them, and sometimes spend hours on the internet looking up a possible wilting condition. Of course, in most cases, all your houseplant needs is a reasonable amount of light, soil nutrition, water, and ambient humidity. Unfortunately, even if you stick to a strict watering and sunlight schedule, the inside of a winter home when the heater kicks on is often much drier than is healthy for the leaves of a houseplant. Most plants require not only water through their roots but also a reasonable amount of humidity in the air. Otherwise, they will lose moisture through their leaves which can cause brown spots and wilting. This is why many gardeners swear by misting, the act of spraying a light mist of water on your home, office, and green houseplants in order to keep their leaves moist and the air around them a little more humid.

    How to Enhance Your RV Vacations with a Misting Fan

    Going on a loner, couple's, or family vacation in your RV can be one of the freest experiences imaginable. Because you have everything you need inside, there's no need to worry about hotels, schedules, or even arrival times. You can always pull over and take a very comfortable nap, keep yourself clean, avoid questionable gas station bathrooms, and cook from real groceries instead of relying on unhealthy travel food. Whether you're going on an extended camping trip, want to work remotely in the woods for a while, or will be using the RV to visit family without needing a guest bedroom, RV life is a luxury. But it can get hot. Anyone who's gone RV camping before already understands the unique challenges involved in keeping your RV at the perfect comfortable temperatures. Even if your RV is well-insulated against the weather outside, they tend to build up heat inside the cabin. Cooking is a particularly serious challenge, as heat from the stove and oven can become intense in the small cabin

    5 Uses For Misting Fans To Keep Your Summer Cool

    We've all seen misting fans before. These simple devices use tiny nozzles, high-pressure water, and basic science to create localized areas of cool air, which can help you beat the heat during even the more unreasonable temperatures. But while we see them on the patios at high-end restaurants, or on the sidelines during professional sports games, that doesn't mean these fans are only for the rich and famous. In fact, there are all sorts of uses you could put them to this summer.

    #1: Making Your Porch Bearable

    If you've got a porch or a patio, then the natural urge is to use it to enjoy some of that fresh air you're entitled to.

  5. 3 Reasons to Install a Misting Fan in Your Garage Workshop

    3 Reasons to Install a Misting Fan in Your Garage Workshop

    The hobbies and skills we choose to work on at home are often incredibly revealing about a person. Many people transform their kitchens into a semi-professional workspace for recreational cooking, others establish an office stacked to the ceiling with screens and computer parts but the one hobby that is perhaps the most popular and can be found in almost every garage in America is amateur mechanics and engineering. Whether you've been building working on the car or teaching yourself to carve wooden furniture, millions of people spend a few hours in their garage workshop almost every evening and sometimes work on projects through solid weekends. Of course, while it makes perfect sense to keep the power tools, gas lawn mower, and automotive gear out in the garage, it does mean that your workshop is less likely to be temperature controlled compared to the rest of the house.
