Is there any bad effects of small fan blowing directly over a 250 watt MH ?
Just thought I would ask before mounting the fans in my new hood...

I read just the opposite of that last night. I am by no means an expert on
this but I have been reading up a lot on MH. I'll see if I can find it.

well i post just on an IME as i have fans blowing directly across my 250's
and 400's and have had them doing so for over 2 years. i have no problems
from it, never had a bulb 'go bad', explode, crack, etc..........

but as always YMMV.

Please dont take it personally kc. I value your input and experience as
much as everyone else.

I did look around for it but I can not find where I read it. I have been
doing SO much reading on MH lately it has become an obsession.

In your defense, I will say that I only saw it in ONE place, not several.

IF I happen to find it again, I'll post the source and then we can determine
if it is reliable. =)

I looked through my history from yesterday and I could not find the exact
article that I had read but I did turn up a few similar hits in my
searching...

i read that, it is a posting on a board with opinions just like here.
the point i took from it was that it cools the bulb and therefore reduces
the light output. i dont see this with my bulbs as they get prety dang hot,
i have scares from touching them with the back of my hand when i was working
in the tank once.

And with the lack of info on it Ken, I would not worry about it.
