Trying to specify the Diakin 3MXL24RMVJU in ResStock v2.2.4.

I know that the Fan motor rated output power is 122 W.

To specify fan power, I need w/cfm of airflow. However, I have airflow for three different fan settings (high, medium, and low) for both heating and cooling.

Diakin Fan Settings

Unsure which cfm I should use for the fan_power calculation.

Ask to manufacturer what airflow rate the fan motor power refers to. I guess it refers to medium airflow rate

rated motor power would always refer to high speed.

I ended up using medium fan cfm for heating in the denominator of my fan power calculation.
