I'm looking for some recommendations on outdoor ceiling fans that are used in covered patios, preferably buildings that have all 4 sides open.
I've done a search but only found some stuff from 07, so I figured I'd ask again.
My cover will be 16x24 so I'll have 2 ceiling fans, approx 60" each. One option is getting a large fan like a Big *** Fan http://www.bigassfans.com/products/isis/ , but they're very expensive. Another option would be the Minka Aire series. Relatively cheap but they move some major air at around 8500+cfm; plus they are DC drive so I could run them all day.
I'm looking to see what others have used, especially in this texas heat.
