    Default Where best to place fan?

    Where could I place this fan for maximum efficiency? Any advice would be appreciated. My grow tent is a 60x60x170

    Intake lowest port in your tent ,

    Extractor Highest point possible

    Clip on fan just above canopy of plants

    That how mine runs , As all the heat & moisture you want rid of goes to the top

    Also the 90 degree bend on your extractor is reducing the flowrate @ 10-15% at every bend , You should try have the pipe as straight as possible

    Cheers bud, done all that. The extraction fan is too powerful for my grow tent, so I've put a few bends in the ducting and have a controller for it also.

    I always run two fans plus - both aimed at the wall and so that the airflow hits each other (at Canopy height) - to give chaotic flow.

    I would like to buy clip on 6” oscillating fans - but have not found any decent ones :-(

    Just make sure that fan is heavy duty enough. How many plants you planning on growing?
