Air inlets

A side wall inlet machine can take a lot of the work out of controlling house temperature and air quality while at the same time minimizing fuel usage. An inlet machine insures that the inlets open when the timer fans come on and close when they shut off. As outside temperature increases and more fans come on to cool the house, an inlet machine increases the amount of inlet opening to match the number of fans operating. As a result, the outside temperature can vary from below freezing to 60oF or more without the grower having to make adjustments to fans or inlets.
