    Incubator Fan Question

    I am in the final stages of setting up my incubator, a converted double door fridge.
    I am about to install the two fans. One at the top rear right hand side, and one at the bottom front left hand side.
    Now here is the question, do I set both to blow, or one to blow and one to suck.
    I want the best possible air circulation.

    Oh, I have cut away the partition between the top and bottom portions of the fridge.
    So it is in effect one big fridge.

    I only use one at the top to blow air back down and avoid hot spots.

    Heat travels up , one will do the job.

    Here is what you can use for a simple installation so no cutting necessary.

    Just install with the fan pointing down.

    The one at the top should blow the hot air down. The one at the bottom should push cooler air up.

    Going by the mounting arms it would have to be on the back panel or the left or right hand side panels.
