Hmmm, hadn’t thought of that. Putting the fans (filters) on a timer sounds like a good thing. So when you leave the shop for the day, the air still gets filtered some more. I like it!

That’s not a bad idea, I have a JET ceiling mounted unit that has a 2, 4 and 8 hour timer built in.

Have your say...
