I'm not familiar with your appliance or fans, but on the Harman blower that I have, I used to have a flap over the fan inlet that allowed me to control the amount of air going into the box. I then took it off the timer control and plugged it into an outlet so that it ran 24/7. After that worked out well, I wired it to a ceiling fan speed control and took off the flap. It still runs 24/7, but only at about 1/3 its full-speed. Slower speed, less friction, lower heat - I'm hoping that this prolongs the life of the blower.
Is that what you had in mind, or am I way off-base?
