About Windmills

In the United States the word "windmill" refers to a type of wind-powered pump used to bring water out of the ground and pump it into stock tanks, irrigation ditches, or anywhere else it is needed. To confuse things a bit, in other areas of the world a windmill is a type of wind-powered mill (a device that grinds whole grains) and not a wind-powered pump.

Windmills - the wind-powered pump kind, that is - have been in existence in one form or another for thousands of years, steadily spreading across different continents and countries since that time. In the United States they famously cover the countryside from coast to coast and have become a strong symbol of farm, ranch, or country life.

Ceiling Fans: Dry, Damp, or Wet Rated

Many ceiling fans carry a rating describing them as UL listed for use in dry, damp, or wet conditions. So, what does that mean?

UL refers to Underwriters Laboratories, an independent organization approved by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) to perform safety testing on a wide variety of electrical devices and components, including ceiling fans. The different ratings are described below.
