inline fan

  1. Do powered inline fans run at full speed right out of the box, or do you HAVE to buy a controller to make them run at full speed?
     
  2. depends on the fan. the ones i got (from homedepot and every bit as good as a horticulture fan, but 1/2 price) didn't have a plug on it, you had to hard wire it. i installed a three prong grounded plug ($2.00) and a rheostat, the rheostat will allow you to set the speed.
     
  3. Most duct fans will run at full speed unless you add a controller.
    Basically the exact opposite of what you said.

  4. hey whodi...
    I have two of those and they run full speed right out of the box, however they are a little quiter if you tune them down a little with the reostat, they also sell speed controllers on ebay... Thats all I use to control heat in my rooms. I bought an extra one just in case one failed...
     
  5. youve just gotta hard wire em...

    could someone gimme a pic of this rheostat so i know what i should go get?
