their $183 3c614 is also nice, and more efficient, moving 8908 cfm with
180 w (49 cfm/w) vs 3290 with 90 w (36 cfm/w) for the $73 4tm66.
then again, a 2'x8' stairway door with a 24' height difference between
basement windows and gable vents might move 16.6(2'x8')sqrt(24'x10f)
= 4115 cfm with a 10 f indoor/outdoor temperature difference at night.
