in pergola. I have found a ceiling fan that I really want to install in the pergola. It is wet rated. Will it be okay to install this in the pergola?

I have one in my screen porch installed 7 years ago, no problem. It is rated for outdoors also.

Julie, I believe there are two kinds of fans - outdoor, like yours and wet rated, which is subject to total rain exposure.
