I just bought one for my fan and it works wonders
all is much quieter
Ok, so I plugged my HTG fan controller back in today to see if I could try to get this problem under control. It does make a slight buzz still, but it is not as loud as it was previously. Is this "buzzing"/"hum" noise a BAD thing? Is it wearing down my fan? If not, I can live with the buzz over the 747 Jet Engine noise any day.
you can build a box for your fan and sound proof it, you can get insulated duct,
what makes the buzzing sound? the controller? i dont get that, my is dead silent.
I'm mostly sure the buzzing comes from the fan, but only when I have the speed turned down past 50-60%. When the fan is running on the FULL speed area, there is no buzz, or when the fan is plugged into the direct outlet there is no buzz from the fan. Only when I am regulating the speed, there is a hum coming from the fan. Is that hard on the fan at all? Or is that just how the controller operates...?
i dont know mine is silent, certain fan are meant for controllers and some arent.
someone else will chime in.
Yeah, the fan says it's speed controllable both on their official website and the site I purchased the fan from. So, I don't think there should be any problems with controlling the speed of it... fan has been used for less than 10 minutes total run time too so it's brand new.
ok let it run it may stop buzzing once its at its speed for awhile. JMO
Anyway, the poster was running a "speedster" fan controller on his fan and it would hum unless the fan was at full speed. He said it was caused by the way the controller varied the speed by using the chopping on and off of the power, instead of sending less power through it.
Hope that made sense,
