I like these motors
One motor, different horse power ratings. Just change the cap. Saves on shelf space too.

Oh heck yeagh.
Ed. I carried the Rescues on my truck when I was on my own. 4 motors. covered just about anything I ran into in light commercial. They carry them at United Ref.
I have seen the majority of the ones I have installed since installation. And in the last 3 years of duty not one has failed I know of."The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability." Henry Ford

Okay; I'm going to ask a really dumb question.
Why don't you just run the motor in 1/2 HP mode for all applications? RPM of the motors is going to remain the same, thats determined by the windings. The Amp. draw is determined by the size/pitch of the Fan Blade(s) and the drag from the motor itself. In my opinion the reason you would use a quarter HP motor, is because it's cheaper than a half HP motor, and maybe a smaller size. I've seen larger HP motor run less amps. in the same application as a smaller HP motor.
