    Can anyone tell me correct direction for ventilation?
    It is to heating element? Or not?[​IMG]

    on a forced air incubator air intake should be on the negative pressure side of the circulation fan and your exit on a positive side.

    for still air intake at bottom, exit at top.

    if you mean airflow then the fan blows across the heating element.
