Fans in the Fridge

I’ve finally found a bit of time to get my fans installed in the fridge.

I’m still waiting on the humidity controller to arrive from China. Everything else took about 8 days to arrive, but the humidity controller has so far been 36 days – The tracking number shows it in NZ now, so it should arrive very soon.

I’ve lined one of the holes with a short length of PVC pipe, the other has a longer piece to reach lower to the bottom of the Fridge section – The longer length “sucks” air from the bottom of the fridge, effectively trying to fight convection and move the cold air from the lowest point back to the highest point.

The Fans are installed, but I still need to run the cables

I’ve also picked up an ABS plastic project box to house the electronics – I’ll be cutting holes in it this week to support the Temperature & Humidity controllers
