Plenty of people get lost and confused when they start looking at misters for their home or business. People are starting to make the shift to using mist fans to beat the heat as they abandon their use of air conditioners.
Using air conditioners is starting to take a toll on most people’s bank accounts given by the fact that the price for electricity has risen, and will continue to rise, over the past few years. People are also concerned about the planet’s health as air conditioners have had a negative impact on the environment.
Unfortunately, shopping for a mist fan can be a difficult task for some people. Generally, the issue most people have is that they have no clue how to separate the right mister from the wrong one. Sure, every now and then a few people make a good decision, but there is still a difference between a good choice and the right choice.
Luckily, getting the right mist fan from all the different misters out there does not have to be difficult. A person can simply arm themselves with the right kind of information in order to avoid a potentially disastrous and costly mistake.
Below are a few rules and guidelines that can help people with getting themselves a good mist fan.
Going with plastic or metal mist fans
Mist fans are built using either metal or plastic. This is true for all fans. Either kind of building material has its own pros and cons.
The good thing about getting a plastic mist fan is that they are cheaper than metal models. Plastic mist fans present a good option for those who do not plan on spending much for their mist fan. The downside to plastic mist fans is that they were never meant for outdoor use. The plastic materials are incapable of withstanding the devastating effects of the outdoor elements.
Metal mist fans are the best option for those who plan on using their mist fan for outdoor applications. These are built to last and are capable of withstanding brutal punishment from outdoor elements. The downside to metal mist fans is that they are significantly more expensive that their plastic counterparts. The reason for the price difference is that metal is much more expensive to produce.
Misters and selecting the right pressure
Mist fans come in three different pressure levels. The pressure depends largely on a person’s needs as higher is not always better. A lot of people think that mist fans with high pressure water pump systems are better than the rest. This can be a mistake equivalent to trying to water a potted plant with a fire hose. People need to match their needs with the mist fan’s pressure system.
High pressure mist fans are the mist fans people usually see in large outdoor events. These are ideal for cooling a large area, especially outdoors as they generate the most amount of pressure. The large pressure allows the mist fan to cool a larger area that most mist fans cannot. They are expensive, but performance justifies the cost.
Medium pressure mist fans are ideal for those who just want a mist fan for their house. These give the right kind of performance who want something indoors, but can still be used for moderate outdoor use. These do not cost as much as a high pressure mist fan, but are more expensive than a low pressure mist fan.
Finally there are the low pressure mist fans. These are uncommon. The people who buy these are those who are on the lookout for a mist fan for personal use. These misters offer the lowest performance at the lowest price.
