My TRUE GDM-49 does the same in a stock setup, but I power the entire unit off/on via controller. Huge electric savings to only have the PC fan running and does a great job.
I'm not understanding your huge savings.
The stock TRUE GDM evaporator fan motor draws about 9 watts. If run continuously, that's 216 watt-hours/day or 6.48 kilowatt-hours/month. At $0.15 / kilowatt-hour, that's only 97 cents per month. Two fans can run for less than $2 per month.
I'm not sure which fan you're using but a quick search of 110v pc fans show anywhere from 6 to 13 watts.
