The Various Benefits Of Using Camping Fans

When you are in the great outdoors, you often do not think about a fan that can keep you cool. However, there are countless benefits associated with camping fans, not solely limited to keeping your tent cooler in warmer weather. If you are curious about these benefits and if they could apply to your next camping trip, be sure to check out our overview below.

What Is The First Benefit Of A Camping Fan?

Cooling your tent down is paramount when you go camping in warmer weather. While you could open up your tent and leave some of the mesh panels open, you will find that this is not effective at all when there is zero wind. To get some air circulation inside your tent - and remove the warm air from your sleeping environment - a good camping fan can do the trick.

To ensure you get proper air circulation inside your tent, it is recommended to place a fan in front of a ventilation panel. Ideally, you want to keep all the panels and the front of your tent open, this enables the warm air to leave the tent once the fan has been switched on.

What Is The Second Benefit Of A Camping Fan?

One of the problems you can encounter inside your tent is a moisture problem. Many people believe that moisture problems only occur when it is raining outside, but this is not the case. In fact, even the action of sweating inside your tent at night could cause problems with moisture. Since the last thing you need is a mould problem, a fan could help keep the problem out of control.

A well-placed camping fan can dry out the interior of the tent or evacuate moisture in the same way it evacuates hot air. If you often go camping and moisture is a regular problem, then a camping fan should be the first item to put on your list for this camping trip.

What Is The Third Benefit Of A Camping Fan?

While we have elaborated on some of the side-benefits of a camping fan, we must also consider the main benefit, e.g. cooling. A cooling fan can do wonders for the temperature inside your tent, providing you are using the camping fan in the appropriate manner.

Campers who use a camping fan on its own will find that the temperature inside the tent is only a little better than outside. In some cases, it may not provide the benefit you expect from it. One of the ways to counter that is to create your own ice cooling system. By placing ice behind the fan, cooler air will be circulated inside the tent. Subsequently, you will notice a bigger difference once you get inside.

When you do not want to mess around with ice, there is no need to worry though. Having a little breeze on its own can be a big difference, as stagnant hot air can make you feel a whole lot warmer.

Tips Before Buying Your Camping Fan

Before you decide on a camping fan, there are some small details to consider. Here are the main things to look at before you buy a fan for your upcoming camping trip.

Power - While many fans are now operating on solar or batteries, there is a select number of fans that may require power. Naturally, power may not be widely available during your camping trip, so this is certainly something to consider when you look at fans.

Speed - The maximum speed your camping fan can handle will impact how effectively it can provide air circulation. The overall size of the fan can be important too, especially for larger family tents that need a bigger cooling capacity.

Operation - The final and often most important aspect of choosing a cooling fan is its operation. How easy is your intended camping fan to set up? Does it require a solid base, or can it be put on uneven ground? Considering where you are heading for your camping trip, these are all factors that should be on the considerations list.
