I have at least 50 just in computers, maybe 80-100. 11 ceiling /
bathroom fans. 1 carpet fan (really great after a hot run). 6 free
standing fans. 3 AC/heating unit fans. 3 vacuum fans. 7 vehicle
fans. At least 9 for appliances. Approx. 95-135 fans total.
Fans drive me crazy. I'm always replacing them in computer power
supplies, CPU fans, etc. I had to replace one in one of the laptops
recently. It was a funky fan with no cage, three tiny arms, and an
exposed rotor. I ordered exactly the same manufacturer and part # and
the configuration was much different. Screws didn't line up, etc.
Luckily I was able to wedge it into the air guide cage inside the laptop
and it worked.
Oh, I forgot the fans in the UPS units, add about 6, and those in the
entertainment systems, add at least 9 more.
