Many thanks Tom!

Just to clarify, you're running the air mover in a doorway to exhaust the air out of the room, with filtered air coming in the room.

So for my scenario, it would be best for me to put a box fan in a window with a filter taped to it, blowing in.  Then foam insulation covering a doorway with a hole cut out down bottom for the air movers, with a filter on the inlet side.

Window or door open for air in, with a filter. Don't need a fan.

Air mover on the floor with a filter over the inlet. Get the stuff you're spraying as close as you can to the air mover.

Anyone have experience/knowledge of a Novair 2000?? Would this be acceptable for
Overspray dust?

@Twoodman66  Never used one, but it should be fine.
Same principle as the Build Clean. About the same price.
Anything that filters, moves and exhausts the air out of the space you are working in is better than none. This can be as minimal as a fan with a filter in front of it to industrial air filters.
Just remember to exhaust out of the home. If you don't you have a big clean up and some unhappy folks.

I would love to hear what you got and how it works for you.

In a recent bookcase install I used the Build Clean unit as an air cleaner. Worked well. It will get a good work out when I spray a kitchen in a couple weeks.

I wonder if it's possible to move too much air in an area where one is spraying?

Yes, definitely possible, but you would find it difficult to actually set up and spray with that much air flow and turbulence.

Moving too much air could mess with the lay down.
