Wire form fan guards are only made to fit fans with the same dimension. Advantages to using cooling fan guards include lessening the amount of energy used by the fan, and increasing the fan's lifespan. Cooling fan guards have an influence over other aspects of fan performance as well, such as airflow and the collection of dirt. A cooling fan should always be used with a fan guard. Before a new cooling fan system is installed, the unit needs to be turned off and unplugged.
