I guess there is some electrical code that forbids connecting the 120vac
blower between one side of the 240ac line and neutral?
I hope this doesn't start another round of ground vs neutral wiring sins.

You can get more benefit with primary taps and not bothering with a pair
120V windings; use a seperate 120V line for blowers, LV supplies, etc.
Tapping the secondary limits your KVA as you go to lower voltages and who
the heck needs a CT in a big amp?
