Adjusting for fans on a circuit


Hi,
First off, many thanks to everyone who posts on here. I have been coming here for answers throughout my project and found answers to just about every question I've come across. There is one question that I can't seem to find an answer to however...

Do I have to de-rate a circuit if there is a fan load on it?
Is this true for ceiling fans? Bathroom/kitchen exhaust fans?

(I hope I'm using the proper terms)

TIA,
Jason, PA

No derating is not needed.

What are some general (or specific) guidelines for wiring ceiling and exhaust fans?
