This will work for a room of that size.
will be using fan in an electrical closet/room to assist in ventilating both dampness and any fumes from charging battery bank (2 deep cell marine batteries) used for emergency power back-up (running power inverter). Do you think this fan will do the job? Again, closet or room is very small, probably 3.5 feet by 4.5 feet by 6.5 height. Will be hooking up the Broan 24 hr timer so that fan does not run all the time. thanks, Joe
