Modeling of a HVAC Fan

I am in the process of modeling the flow rate produced by a HVAC fan and am having trouble with some details.
How should I approach this analysis in Fluent?
I understand that the differential static pressure is the difference in pressure between the inlet and the outlet but I cannot figure out how to apply this in Fluent.
Should I set the Inlet Boundary Conditions in Fluent to a "pressure-inlet" type, set the Gauge Total Pressure to -160Pa and do the same for the outlet but use atmospheric pressure instead?
And as for the rotation of the fan itself, am I right in saying this is done through settings in the Boundary Conditions of the fan body?
ie. Moving Wall, Rotational, Relative to Adjacent Cell Zones, Rotation-Axis Origin (0,0,0) and Rotation-Axis Direction (0,1,0)

Any help here would be fantastic!
