Don't know the answer to your electrical question of the 2 things on the 1
circuit.  But it is a basic one that somebody can answer definitively.

I thought I read someplace that "pusher" fans can interfere with "puller"
fans.  That is, use one or the other.  The use of both will result in a loss
of efectiveness.  Try disconnecting one and see what happens.  The test is
certainly easy and cheap enough.
