I have a 11’x’ 22’ single car garage with a 7.5’ ceiling.
I just ripped down all my sheetrock, sealed the air gaps, and insulated at every wall.
My house is a split-level, so I have 2 beams that cross my garage, and those 2 beams separate my garage ceiling into 3 sections of ceiling.
I have 8 outlets that are 120v and 2 outlets that are 240v.
I have a model 50-875 Delta air cleaner that measures 24’x 28’x12” and am trying to figure out where to mount it. I have two 4’ T-8 fluorescent shop light fixtures that I am not married to, but in the past I had them mounted across the width of the front & rear sections of the ceiling along with a standard cheapo ceramic single light bulb with a pull chain in the middle section that I am not married to either, along with my garage door opener. I have used the air falter sitting on the floor a few times, but it has been sitting in my basement wasting away the dollars I spent on it.
At the front of my garage I am going to build and mount cabinets to hold all the “stuff,” and my Delta contractor’s table saw (which is on a base with wheels) will be under the cabinet. Also against the wall of the front of my garage will be my stacked rolling tool chest & drawers.
Should I mount the air cleaner in the middle section of my garage ceiling? Picking up air from the front half of the garage and returning the air out the rear towards the garage door, or will it be effective mounted facing across my garage where the air is picked up from the house wall side and blown out towards the outside wall?
I have a 6hp Ridgid brand shop-vac with a fine filter that I will use to collect dust from my table saw, joiner, router and compound miter saw via some ducts I will install – I only use one machine at a time since it is a small garage-shop and the shop-vac.
I’d really like to hear your suggestions and your experience.
Thank you for your help!
