    interior Hunter Original under porch?

    Can I hang an interior Hunter Original under a covered porch in Georgia?
    How to know which models Hunter Originals are exterior models?
    Will wood blades stay true when exposed to exterior humidity?

    Thanks!

    Bonnie, that should be fine as long as they are out of the rain. They've hung on porches like that for many years with no issues. If you're concerned about the blades, a good coat of varnish should protect them fine. There were and are newer outdoor versions of the Original, but I think the motors are the same, it's just that some have cloth or plastic blades. But solid wood blades should be okay on the porch. I would remove the blades during high winds such as hurricanes though.
    Bests,

    I've had no issues hanging mine outside and I live near the ocean.
    That's it, folks!
