    That's very low. When I bring in minimal air due to really cold weather, I get over 2500 in a hour or so. Lots of bees in there.

    That could be Brian, this was my first year in my new shed and it was only filled to 40 cft per hive. Next winter it will be 20 cft per hive. But even filled to half capacity the room never got cold even with a week that stayed around -10-5 F. It is very well insulated ( closed cell foam) wonder if that is helping hold heat and then kicking the fans on more.
