I recently bought a new 8” carbon filter for around $65 and attached to my 8” inline fan. After just one day my temps (even with the fan on high) went from 73f to over 84f so I removed the prefilter to see what that would do and maybe…maybe it reduced temps by 1 degree.
I’ve since ordered another carbon filter made by Phresh company. Was much more money but actually stated the CFM flow rating of the filter which is more than what my fan is rated at. It should be here tomorrow so I will be able to see the difference as I am in my second week of flowering and the smells are really getting well wonderful lol.
The “defective”? Filter will be sent back once I verify the new one is working as intended.
Has anyone else had issues with a new filter which seemed to severely reduce the CFM my guess by more than 50% just based on putting my hand over the outflow duct and feeling the flow.
