The only reason I may use fans in the first place is to keep the bulbs 
cooler and assist the natural convection. 115 CFM would change the air 
under my canopy once every 2.4 seconds ;) Actually, I was planning on 
using the low RPM Panaflo to get somewhere around 40 CFM. That should 
keep any temperature related bulb dimming to a minimum, and still allow 
me to hear the TV.
