Oh, that's a good breeze.
Yeah, a bit hot today Mick so we've just turned the fan on to cool the area down a little bit.
A great idea in a place like Queensland. So why is this the right thing for this environment?
So, Mick, the fan we've chosen is a Hunter Pacific Aqua DC fan. It's the world's first IP66-rated fan.
IP66-rated, what does that mean?
So IP66 is ingress protection. Basically, it's completely dustproof and also protects against high-pressure water jets so you can get in there and clean it properly.
Really good for coastal locations in an outdoor deck area like this one.
Yeah so close to the beach that's particularly ideal.
So I used to have a fan that had two speeds, stir the air and just high speed. How many speeds does this one have?
This one's got six speeds here, Mick. All controlled via the remote control so you don't have to get up and change at the wall like you used to.
Yeah, yeah absolutely. And are there any other features that you would recommend about this particular (ceiling) fan?
Yep, so the Aqua fan has its timer setting as well, one, two or four hour settings. So basically hit that after that say one hour period it'll automatically turn itself off.
That's a good feature, I'm always leaving my outdoor fan on at night.
This would be good for you then. There mate.
