  It is fairly common practice to operate evaporative cooling pads off both house temperature and an interval timer. For instance, the evaporative cooling pad pump would be set to turn on once house temperature reaches 82°F, at which time an interval timer would allow the circulation pump to operate a minute or two out of ten. Once the house temperature drops below 81°F, the circulat ...

wahmed ahmed Both are very similar and therefore would have similar air speed and electricity costs. The optimal size may have to do more with which dimensions would be the best for the nests and slats if they are going to be used.

Electricity costs can be reduced by installing energy efficient fansorusing fans less...which will not help bird performanceor keeping fans properly maintainedorusing variable speed technology

Syed Farjad Zaidi Yes, you generally need a different type of controller...though some modern controllers can do both single speed and variable speed fans. When you have variable speed fans there needs to be a speed controller on each fan. You can have a combination of both fans.
Dr. Mike Czarick likes the comment:
There are several ways, in my opinion, where variable drives can be very helpful. What I don't hear a lot of discussion about is multiple fans on individual drives, which can greatly reduce cost and the ability to correct deficiencies or stratification of air by using drive adjustments.
