I was reading the directions for this fan and noticed that they mentioned it
wasn't recommended for locations that get over 104F.
It made me wonder why would it be so low condidering that most people put
bathroom fans in the attic - and I wouldn't be surprised to find my attic
getting over 104F in the summer. Would a fan like this only be recommended
for cold climates, do manufacturers even make this kind of distiction?
I would assume the rating would be for ambient and based on the motor
temperature rise to keep it under whatever was the design temp.
It's probably all right at the ceiling as temperatures won't be _too_
much over 100F right at the outlet and while running the air flow
through it will tend to cool it some. Does sound a little marginal
design for the application though, although I must admit I've never
looked at that spec for an exhaust fan...
