Got my two fans mounted and operational, 1) 80mm and 1) 90mm. With both fans going, you can feel the heat coming out of the roof vent. Temp inside frig is holding @ 33 with the control set at 2 and outside temp @89. Very pleased with the setup. I may bolt a deflector to the outer edge of the fans so the air is directed straight up so it does not deflect off the accumulator and out the lower vent. I want all the air going up the chimney and out the roof vent.

At 89-91 degrees could you not get those temps before the fans?

1) I could not maintain a temperature .
2) fridge temp ran mostly in the 36 to 38 range

my fridge cooled to 32 degrees in about 9 hours . it could have been less but I only checked when I got home from work .

I could get the temps, but the control had to be set @4 instead of 2 and if the outside temp went to the high 90's and low 100, I had to set the control to 5 to hold the frig at around 34-35. It just makes the whole system work so much more efficient for our situation. For no more expense and effort to install, I think it it well worth it.

The gas burner just does not cycle as much. As far as saving propane, I imagine it is negligible, but every little bit helps.
