How can I reduce the power on my hairdryer ?
I guess there are two things to consider.
- 1. The heating element
- 2. The fan speed
Reducing the fan speed wouldn't work as there would be too much excess heat, which would be dangerous.
Ideally i would like to reduce the fan speed and the power of the heating element although i would settle for just reduction in the the power of the heating element.
Is there a way to do this easily ?
I have a degree in physics but never been too keen on electronics. One way i thought would be to install a variable resistor on the main power to both the fan and heating element.
Can anyone think of an easier solution? Possibly one which require no extra parts.
EDIT: to those of you who have said 'just buy another hair dryer', you are a true inspiration to the DIY process…..thanks
