Hey Everyone,

I recently bought a new air filter jet 110b. I’m planning to hang it during the weekend. Instead of hanging down the ceiling joist I want to put it on top of the ceiling joist. I’m planning to add 2×4 perpendicular to the joist and add filter on top of it. Would this be a good setup? Attaching a picture of my garage.

I don’t see why not.

It may not be as effective. This is a relatively high volume unit as long as it can get a good airflow coming into it and exiting out of it. Any disruption of airflow on the input side will reduce flow, any thing on the back side that restricts airflow could deflect it back towards the input side thus reducing the effectiveness if that clean air is sucked back in. Also any obstructions on the input side that disrupt airflow may cause the particles to fall out of suspension since they are slightly heavier than air. If you use the joists for wood storage or if it partially floored as it looks in your photo it will do a superb job of keeping the area between your rafters and your ceiling joists clean. You will be changing the pre-filter often and cleaning the main filter often. Make sure they are easy to get to. It’s a great unit. I love the remote speed control and timer. I let it run for an hour or two after I leave the work area to help eliminate dust in the shop.

Your Jet air filtration unit is a nice unit. As northwoodsman notes. Is there through air circulation to rotate air through the shop. 2nd; where you plan on putting the unit, is it in reach to vacuum out or clean the filter. And or change the filter. I use a vacuum hose to clean my filters when I’m sanding a lot. Differs the cost of replacing the filters.
