I decided to work on cleaning the air in my garage since I don’t have a centralized DC with a good filter. I made 2 of these on each side of the garage facing in the opposite direction, thinking whatever one fan is blowing, the 2nd fan will pull it in and filter it in a cyclone fashion; just on a bigger scale. It was relatively simple to make. It was made from 1/2” MDF, 2 – 20” box fans, dual filter system using a Merv 12 inner filter and a basic external filter. I installed hinges and a clasp so I can remove the filters easily as well as the fan if I ever needed to for some reason. And finally I bought one of those EtekCity remotes and since I had an outlet in the ceiling, this was a perfect solution. I can turn on both fans remotely anytime I want. It’s been about 2 months since I installed these and it’s definitely working as the external filter is definitely getting dirty. The air in my garage doesn’t smell all that musty anymore. I must be doing something right.
