Q: Does it have to be vented?
A: Yes, this is required for all of our units.
Q: Can we use a vent fan to help with airflow?
A: Yes, and we recommend this!
Q: Can we attach the vent fan to the module and use the Medi-Kool compressor to run the fan?
A: Absolutely not. Each fan will need it’s OWN separate 12V source, NOT one shared with the cabinet. This will result in failure.
Q: What size fan can I use?
A: Anything less than 36 square inches of space requires a vent fan. The smaller the space, the bigger the fan. These can be purchased through Mermaid or they can be bought anywhere that sells these types of fans.
Q: Which direction should I make the air flow?
A: The hot air should be pulled out of the cabinet space and blown into the cab area. Outside venting is the best option if possible, instead of pushing hot air into the ambulance, etc.
