It’s all about the porch and patio if you’re entertaining this summer. Social distancing, check. Masked up, beer chilled, a playlist on your phone, where are those Bluetooth speakers? You’re almost ready to have friends over, but there’s one last thing: How to keep everyone comfy out there? You need a ceiling fan that’s built for wet spaces like your porch, under your arbor, or gazebo! A good one keeps the bugs off AND moves that damp, humid Wisconsin air creating a little wind-chill effect that keeps even your fussiest friend perfectly cool.

We’re wading into a summer like no other, and we’re gonna be happy. We can do this. We can fight a pandemic and be with our besties and be safe. But let’s not be crazy: don’t put a ceiling fan meant for a kid’s bedroom outside. And don’t jump in buying a fan from a big box store just because it looks ok. It’s destined for the landfill and you haven’t even paid the credit card bill yet. Madison Lighting’s fans are chosen for room size, rated for volume of air, built to run indoors, in damp locations or all the way out wet locations. The motor housing isn’t sealed like the fans from the big box stores, so if you ever need to service it you can. A good ceiling fan is built to run, sort of like your fridge. Nope, Madison Lighting fans aren’t headed for the landfill. You’ll be donating it to Habitat for Humanity Restore because you’ve decided to redecorate before it goes, ‘cause this baby is gonna run quietly, reliably, for years. And did we say it’s going to look pretty cool, too?

See you in the showroom (where you can shop safely because we are following the CDC’s recommendations for businesses like ours: we observe social distancing, our staff is wearing masks and we hope you will, too, while we keep high touch surfaces clean, doing our best to provide a clean environment that won’t rattle your nerves.) If you aren’t ready to shop yet, call us and we’ll set up a virtual shopping appointment. Together we’ll pick out the right fan and ship it to your doorstep, free. A summer like no other? Yes, but we’ve got this.
