NewAir AF-520B Outdoor Misting Fan review: Four thumbs up from desert dwellers

My grandsons live in the hot, hot desert. Which qualifies them as ideal reviewers for the NewAir AF-520B 18-inch Ultra Quiet Outdoor Misting Fan.

NewAir AF-520B Outdoor Misting Fan

The NewAir AF-520B Misting Fan is an oscillating fan that has three speeds plus three nozzles that put out mist when the fan is connected to a garden hose. The water is easily shut off with the flick of a nozzle on the fan cord when desiring the breeze but no mist.

My grandsons, Bubby and Mac (or so named here on the blog) helped PawDad put together the NewAir fan I received free to review with the little desert dwellers.

NewAir Outdoor Misting Fan assembly 

PawDad said the fan assembly was easy as can be—really no more difficult than any other oscillating fan.

Once the NewAir AF-520B Misting Fan was assembled and plugged in to the outdoor outlet, Bubby connected the garden hose, turned on the water, and the cool misty fun began.


Yep! Four thumbs up from the desert dwellers—who will put the NewAir AF-520B Outdoor Misting Fan to good use this summer.
