    Tangagoogoo,
    Well for that, I will try trial & error. In the winter homes are usually on the very dry side anyways and we run humidifiers. The vent I have is connected directly to a 120v. and I can use a dimmer on it. This way I can vary it's speed and have it running non stop but at a low spped, just enough to pull out as much as I want and create a positive pressure pushing outwards. Up till now, I haven't had humidity problems in the winter when the heating is on. If anything the humidifier works less because the thermostat senses the humidity in the house anyways.

    Toutouchiegoochiepoochie,

    Thanks... I'm gonna keep on looking into this as I wouldn't want to run into problems once I already had it up and running. It's always good to plan well ahead of time!

    Talking montrealgekkygaagamonmonkeys

    first, what the heck is in the water there!
    wouldn't very quite strong bathroom type vents in the canopy
    and/or fish room[in wall type] be enough? also, in the winter our HVAC tech at the board says the furnace fan should be on constantly to circulate air throughout the home making use of any heat created by appliances and such as well as deliver any tank moisture[humidity] evenly. The summer would be different or would it? If you like to run your AC always maybe the fan on here as well would help. I don't think humidity would be that much of a prob, in the dry winter months. Maybe like TOUTOUCHARAMBUTT said trial and error.I would definatly keep a meter to measure humidity on hand.

    John Rock..., or Johnny Rocck...., or John Rocky... oh whatever!!! ( is this your porn name??!!!),
    I do run my fan 24/7 on my furnace summer & winter for even distribution. This has also helped me to not have that typical musty sell that lots of basements often have. Yes, it gets dispersed evenly, but Mtl. IS a very humid climate in the summer & winter. So, it's better to have something in place as a backup..., just in case.

    By the way, wjat's a "quite" bathroom fan..., a fan that's not "exactly" a fan..., or what??!!!fft:

    Wink bathroom fan

    quiet bathroom fan, I've heard some fans that are really NOISY
    and I have one at home that is wisper quiet. God don't you guys do any work during the day! oh, wait a minute, I'm here too, doh! Also, there are 2 types of furnace fans![I just found this out] one runs on AC and the other on DC. the difference is apparently HUGE! on the hydro bill.

    Question

    and the batteries are charged with a little hydro when the fan is running I think? We will be installing a super efficient furnace in the spring and will definatly have this feature.

    This is the type of fan I bought and it is 100% silent. It can be installed on a speed controller, is non corrosive so it can suck out all kinds of SW air. It can also be used in labs and is not affected by volatile vapors and such. They are an industrial type fan that is designed to run nonstop if you want it to. You can't get them at HD type stores though, only specialty places and conractor supply places.
