You can get one that runs both.*GAS

 

In response to the OP, you can use a cheapo at your own risk.

 

I used a varispeed(yep that little black/blue dial gak) for about 2 years before with a 5' RVK, no humming just the dialled down air movement sound. Then I had a kid..

@Military Grade can you just run the fan speed controller at a set percentage with no probe - is that manual

Yeah. Right dial has temperature settings and at the end of the dial it has a manual position that over rides the auto speed up and down feature for targeting and let's you control the left dial for manual % speed control.

Do these eradicate the humming of the boxes?

If you get one keep an eye on it...both mine were a few years ago and maybe they've solved the issue, there was no probe with the one I had.

They have a guarantee whatever the case...:yep:

Got to say I've been using the twin outlet with node for a good few years with no issue, the only drawback is it never switches off as you cant turn the minimum below 20% fan speed.

Have a look on this site for a Wac1. It's cheap, reliable and no hum. There is a little bit of diy involved but nothing major.

that's the exact reason i paid more, also the auto stepping is great if you are not around at lights on and forget to step it up!

As far as I remember It works on the low power 6" Rvk A1. Not the L1

 @Joint hogger can hopefully confirm?
