Industrial wall fan on covered porch - not UL507 rated plugged into GFI
 
Hi,
I'm located in Phoenix, AZ.
I bought an industrial fan to which I'm attaching a misting ring on the front grill, so the fan will blow mist over the covered porch area. The fan will be plugged into a GFI outlet outside on the covered porch. After the fact I realized that the fan is not rated for outdoors (UL507).

Is this too risky, or will plugging into a GFI be OK?

Thanks,
Ove
