Part time skimming

Anyone Run their skimmer only part time? My HOB Skimmer makes a bit of noise and I wondered if it might work out to only run it when the lights are on. they,the fan actually, make a bit of noise and with all the other stuff going on during the day I hardly notice it. But in the evening when the only lights on are the moonlights(no fan) it would be nice not to listen to the skimmer either.

Any thoughts ??

TIA

Shouldn't be a problem to run it part time, some don't run them at all. Personally, I never hear the background noise of the tank, but when something stops making that noise...it get's my attention quick
