Misting Systems vs. Fog Systems
You may be thinking, “aren’t they both just water?” Yes! But in a similar way that sand and soil are both earth. The short answer is that fog is thicker and harder to see through, and the mist is less dense. Here is a guide for you to determine if a mist or fog system is ideal for you to combat the Phoenix heat.
What is Mist?
Mist is tiny droplets of water that are so light they’re suspended in the air. The particles are light enough that they stay floating in the air and do not immediately fall to the ground. It’s easier to see through the mist than fog, which makes it convenient for outdoor spaces where you’ll be lounging and enjoying the conversation. Misting systems are ideal for seating areas, patios, outdoor kitchens, and more!
What is Fog?
Just like a cloud in the sky, fog is a collection of minuscule water particles that haven’t formed into rain droplets. It’s less compressed than rain clouds, allowing it to float without dumping the water onto the ground. Fog is denser than mist, making it ideal for creating dramatic drops in temperature. It provides a lot of shade, especially since the sun’s rays can’t bypass it when it’s floating low to the ground. Because of the texture and shape of fog, you can add to the aesthetic of your outdoor area while simultaneously making it more comfortable and enjoyable. Add fog over your pond for a resort-like effect, or to your outdoor lighting to create a calming aesthetic. Installing an outdoor fog system can help maintain landscaping and foliage that would otherwise dry out.
