I decided that since I already have an electric stand fan in my room, I'm gonna place the filter there. Of course, placing a filter on a fan will reduce the airflow so to compromise:
- Don't cover 100% of the fan
- Make sure the fan is more than powerful enough to provide cooling. The weather is autumn-ish in the philippines with noontime temps maybe 32 degrees Celsius max so I swapped out my 125 watt stand fan with a 75 watt one. It is more than enough to provide cooling for the current weather. Next year when summer comes around and temps climb to 38 and more, I'll bring back the bigger fan.
I estimate maybe 2/3 of the surface area of the fan is covered.
This closeup shows the filter after around 3 weeks. Notice the color contrast.
