Replacement for Emerson 1/2 hp WHF motor
The motor in our 24" whole house fan died. It is a 1/2 hp Emerson. I believe the numbers are S60CXLG5067. It is 8.9/5.0 amps. We rarely use it on high, too much airflow. We are thinking that we may replace it with a less powerful 1/3 hp fan. The rpms are the same. Seems your 24" and even larger fans use a 1/3 hp motor. I sure would appreciate the energy savings if I could get away with the smaller motor. Can you think of any reason why I'd need a 1/2 hp motor like 6K394? Thanks.
