Got the primer coat painted in the room. Now it's time for the exhaust fans. Any recommendations for quiet, powerful and reasonably priced fans is welcome!

you have a window in that room don't you?

I use a walmart box fan in the window and it works rather well. I can sit about 7' from the window and you can see the smoke float towards the window when its on.

I was looking into quiet bathroom fans for mine, just a thought.

I was thinking about this since you brought it up on Saturday--where do you want to vent the fan? The problem with a lot of kitchen/bath fans is that they have exhaust tubing which needs to be run somewhere. You have two exterior walls (well, technically 3) so I'm not sure a bath exhaust will do the trick. Basically you'll be cutting a hole directly in an exterior wall. Bath fans usually don't have very good damper systems, so you'll be open to the elements year round.

I'm kinda stumped, maybe a craftier BOTL can offer up better advice.

What about a bathroom exhaust fan with dryer duct and damper?

If you don't want to go the box fan rout, you can just put an exhaust fan in the wall that has metal shutters that open and close when you turn the fan on and off. There is a cover that you can put on the outside of the house over the shutters in the winter time.

The problem is that I don't think Ferg has any room to run the ducting since he's on exterior walls. Could be wrong.

To bad the portable wall mount scrubbers are so pricey.

I've been looking at these. What about an exterior-mounted fan?

In my oppinon, bathroom fans dont pull the scfm needed. I looked into various ventilation forms for my own room, and ended up making a home made system. I hung a boxed gable fan from the rafters in my attic space, and plumbed it to the room. It pulls something like 1500 cfm, and cost me a total of 100 bucks. And because it is hanging from the rafters, it is virtually silent.

Thanks for all the input everyone. I came to the same conclusion Troy...I was going to do a bathroom fan but I don't think it will pull enough. I want at least a 1000 cfm fan. I think I found a fan, or type of fan, that will work well.



These are wall mounted, from the inside, and have a cover. It's capacity is 1500 cfm and it seems like it will be relatively quiet. I found a few varieties of these and the only thing this is missing is a speed control. I might look for that. If any one is interested in more research on this fan, here it is: http://www.globalindustrial.com/p/hv...hutter-mounted

Oh, and I currently have a window fan in as well for a short term fix. I only have the one window though, so I don't want to block it. Also, I am going to temp control this room so I don't want to leave a window open during middle of winter.

I would go with a much higher cfm fan remote mounted as far away from smoking space as possible and run ducting to the room. That would make it easy to have multiple extraction ports for a more consistent air exchange and not dragging all the smoke past one persons head/face going to one common fan. This is how I will do mine.

Check out MarkTHS's brother's cigar room. http://www.ryandeyer.com/cigarroom He gives step by step pics and parts lists. He includes switch operated baffles for both the inbound and outbound air ducts AND for the internal HVAC ducts so smoke doesn't backdraft into other parts of the house. He also includes an in-duct heating coil for inbound fresh air that auto heats the air if it's under 70 degrees F.

He did all of it on a pretty reasonable budget.

Your room was the inspiration for my garage room! (Which is still a work in progress, and likely will be for some time!)

Amazing job!

Yeah, this room is pretty damn sweet but I'm not operating on this kind of budget. A 1500 cfm fan should be more than enough exhaust my 11 x 14 room.
