Vent Fan Options
 
I am looking to increase my current ventilation and was looking at the following:

https://www.amazon.com/Can-Fan-Inlin...ct_top?ie=UTF8

I currently have a 10" which is why I want to replace it with a 10" :) Anyone have any thoughts on these 3?

Thanks!

If you are looking to increase your ventilation, I'd be looking at the airflow ratings. The first option is 760 cfm, the second and third are both >1000. Not coincidentally, they are both more expensive as well. Do you know what your current fan is rated? It could well be that none of these are truly upgrades.

These fans are used by quite a few folks. I find them to be very good and quite a bit quieter than some of those can fans.

My current fan is about 400cfm... not enough. So anyone of these are an upgrade. I guess I should have been clearer in my questions :) I was more so asking if anyone here had used one of the fans I linked and what their thoughts on them were.

Those are cool! but with my window set up there is no way to mount it that I can figure, I will keep them in mind though.

I found an air conditioner support at Home Depot that i mounted to a board then I mounted a similar fan on top of the board, this hangs out the window in front of my torch. I take it in and out as i use it. https://www.homedepot.com/p/AC-Safe-...-080/100091666
