Question

Installing HAF FANS


Hi there i am installing 4- haf fans in my greenhouse and they are going to run in series. The total length of wire from the wire to the last haf fan is going to be 185 feet. This is the ratings for the haf fan: 120V/60hz and .78 amps.

I have a carol 3/c 18 AWG water resistant 300volt wire. Could i use that wire to run all the haf fans at the same time? Also what size breaker should i use?

THANKS

No! You must use an aprroved wiring method for your area.
Carol cable is an extension cord.
