I wish I could simply set my plants or my fan farther away, just not possible. So I took some of my screen row cover or any cheese cloth like fabric. Made kind of a pouch that covers the front of fan. Just wired it on. I find that new fans can be kind of abusive sometimes. I do have a controller for the fan however they don’t work on our fans. So if you’re getting too hard of a blow… There you go!
