You could look at bathroom/toilet type extractors like the type in this link.

the cheapest low voltage extractor fan(including timer and transformer), the Airflow Mini Loovent SELVMLFT Fan Blog Sparks Direct

Advertised as low power usage and quiet.

If this type is to big maybe you could rig something up using a cooling fan from a PC, small and quiet. You could fit it between 2 x 70mm vent covers. I suppose it depends on how much airflow you need.

Plug what ever you decide to use in to a digital socket timer and run it one hour on one hour off.

Hope this helps..

this would keep the hot end hot and make the bulb work harder before the dimmer thermo turned it down as at the cool end there would a constant stream of cool air presure being put in and the pulled

or you could have the exhaust fan at the hot end, and a blower at the cool end, or vice versa?
