    I made this with a spare bathroom fan, a dust filter and with a bit of imagination. The filters are cheap and easy to replace. Its plugged in a wemo controller and I programmed it to go on for 20min 3x a day. air quality improved 100% in the coop

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Wow, that is a great idea! There is a lot of dander and dust going on inside coops and I am sure this does a great job of removing it! You will want to share this with others in our Coop and Run Constructions section so members building their coops can incorporate it into theirs...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/9/coop-run-design-construction-maintenance

    Great job! And welcome to our flock!

    Cool!

    Where does the exhausted air go?
    Would be interesting to see what collects on those filters.
