So,


What I did was a bit unusual but it worked.

I used an old squirrel cage that I ad from when the air handler on my HVAC system was replaced.

The air return was attached to a plenum in the ceiling which in turn had a soft duct run that went to the squirrel cage.

Mounted a switch on the wall and off to the races.

In the winter, I simply installed a 3/4" foam board where the filter would normally go.


Works great.

I need to build one too. I'm not a good designer but an excellent copier so would you go first?

That's how I got to the 6th grade.
