hello all just wondering what folks use,i have a can fan but its not very night time friendly and i have to shut it off,in the mornings i can be met with a lovely aroma although someone outside the house may not have the same opinion.

 

I gotta step up my CF size to 5 inch and the Fan will have to be the same i presume?,currently looking at something like this

https://www.justfans...alkemmur4l467d6

 

i dont particularly want to do a lot of tinkering diy as i just want plug and play for now,theres also a more expensive eco version of that fan

 

anyone else see more cost effective energy efficient fans out there that are an alternative option to soler and palau?

 

or should i just get a muffler for the can so i can run it at night ?

Not sure about different makes of fan but if you get one bigger than you need and turn it down it will make much less noise.

 

Stay safe amigo, if you can smell it in the morning you can bet someone else can as well.

 

All good things

Bought this fan a few weeks ago and it's been spooky quiet. It's inside a tent and I never hear it. Not sure if you can buy it UK or not though. For some reason I was thinking you were in the USA ez?

@The Dude Abides makes a good point when he says to get a larger one and run it at less than full speed - This will probably make a significant difference and will leave a bit of headroom for hot summer days :)

S&P are slightly cheaper at TLC Direct :)

+1 for the oversize the fan and run it off a controller team.

i know its a bit of outlay for the controller and the fan, but its money well spent, in my opinion. 

I can walk past the outside of my 3kw room and hear nothing more than a whisper of air expelling.

You could oversize a RVK (bullet proof fans by the way) and control it down to 30% safely, even less with a variac.

Here is another question could the air foam filter cover on the outside of the CF just need a wash too? as in not performing optimally because of reduced air flow? 

I think i also made the mistake of buying the lightweight smaller version of the CF and the volume of carbon to air flow could have just been reduced,although do think too the light is a factor because the stench is meaningful at certain times ha ha

 

thanks @bigbadbillybob will check RVK,im running a 4" fan currently is it best to jump one size up to the 5"? :)

na, na  go to 6 at least, but there are 2 diffent 6 inch rvks, you want the lower powered A1 fan, not the noisy as fuk L1 version. another option would be a 8 inch fan/ filter  set up, but don't buy a rhino pro filter, they are shit these days, treat yourself to a mountain air one
