Our Covered Porch and an Arctic Cove Review

This was the year, you know the one….where everything starts to break in your house and everything needs to be painted…yep…this was the year. We have been in our home almost 10 years and we have enjoyed our time here, and our children have grown up here.

One of the best things we did when designing our home was to include a covered back porch. We spend a lot of time outdoors as a family. We east dinners out on the porch from about March until the end of October. We even wired it for cable and add a television during the spring and summer. Yet, even with all those memories and good times, we can not change one thing… It Is HOT In The South!!

So, we were thrilled to try out this amazing product from Arctic Cove

A super clever misting fan that sits on top of a 5 gallon bucket or hooks directly to your garden hose. Can you hear the sighs from my family? They feel like they are at an amusement park under the misters and all smiles.

Summers in South Carolina start in about April….seriously…and continue through about the end of October. The humidity is thick enough to { as my daddy says } “cut with a knife”. Yet, we still head outdoors { covered in sunscreen } and enjoy the incredible gift of sunshine.

So when we set up the misting fan from Arctic Cove, I think my husband may have done a little happy dance. It provides a fine mist of cool water and drops the temperature on our covered porch. My husband’s Sunday afternoon naps on the porch ¬†just got better! This little fan is a genius product….portable and convenient!

Yep…portable! Simply attach it to a 5 gallon bucket and you are good to go. It runs on a lithium battery and runs for a long time. On our back porch, I can use it without the bucket, it has an attachment to allow me to hook it to my garden hose.

If you want to see a happy husband, well let me let you in on a little secret. See, he has a plan for this amazing misting fan, he sees it on the sidelines of the football field.

He coaches our son’s youth football team and this is the perfect sideline ¬†accessory for them. They will feel like they have joined the big leagues! So after we get to use it through the summer, they will get to use it through football season.

So after all the work we have done this spring painting and repairing things around our home, we are excited to head outside and enjoy relaxing together as a family. The Arctic Cove Bucket Top Misting Fan is going to allow us to stretch that time outside and enjoy it even with the heat of the summer.
