    Yep ya need one. http://cmfarm.us/stillair.html

    If
    your house stays a constant temp then you can get away without it.


    All ya need is a 3 inch computer case fan an a 6 to 12 volt power plug. The fat black plugs

    Last one I did I hung it from the roof with wire like a ceiling fan.
