While air conditioners chill the air, fans are meant to circulate it which means they can be used for heating or cooling a space based on the season. In a bedroom, a ceiling fan is great to use for a comfortable sleep without needing to run the A.C. In outdoor spaces, a ceiling fan can create a tranquil retreat.
However, when using fans outdoors make sure the blades are weatherproof. Also keep in mind that damp-rated fans should not come in contact with water, but wet-rated fans are suitable for coastal and rainy areas.
