Finding a way to offset the warmth of the kiln

My partner made her name in the art community as a sculptor… At first she did massive showcase pieces, but over time as she refined her craft she focused on smaller object, however little pieces she could make unquestionably in her house studio, plus fire in her hand-made kiln out back.

This is where she truly shined the brightest, plus also what brought him the most personal satisfaction.

After the car accident she was unquestionably weak for a long time, plus just lacked the strength to work. This in turn wounded her confidence plus lust for life; She is getting stronger now, but is still greatly affected by heating plus humidity. This is a strenuous blow, seeing as how she works with a kiln plus previously was used to high levels of heating on a regular basis. If that was no longer going to work for him, then I needed to find a strong, effective means of cooling down her studio. Finding an a/c strong enough to offset all that heat was going to be a strenuous one. I called out a ventilation expert to see what she could recommend, plus she gave us some good ideas on diverting plus dispersing the heat from the kiln. With some modern exhaust vents plus ductwork the two of us could channel most of the heat up plus away, plus then put in a high powered a/c on the other side of the studio, but combined with the air vents, the modern directional a/c would cool down most of the studio so my partner could work.

 

Air conditioning maintenance

Ductwork sealing

My central heating as well as air conditioning plan gets quite a labor out in the Summer.

  • The air conditioning seems to never shut off because it is sohotwhere I live.

The odd thing is, ashotas it is, i’ve asked others in my area about their air conditioning, and they said that their central air conditioning plan does get a break here and there. That is when I found out that I had a problem. It seemed there was some air getting out through my HVAC duct, and the answer to this was to have the HVAC ducts sealed! With duct sealing everything, it will keep the cool air going around my house, and the air conditioning will absolutely reach the temperature set on the thermostat. I made a call to my heating as well as air conditioning company in neighborhood to set up an HVAC repair appointment for the duct sealing. I am lucky to have 1 of their yearly HVAC repair plans, so I absolutely do not have to spend my money for the duct sealing. I spend my money a fee of two hundred dollars a year for this service, and I have to tell you, it has saved me a lot of currency! This duct sealing task that I have to get done now would have costed me close to that yearly fee. So, you do the math! I had the heating and cooling workman out about a day later to do the ductlabor sealing. And as of this week, my thermostat reads what it should, and my air conditioning absolutely gets a break here and there!

Need ductwork sealing

My central HVAC system gets quite a toil out in the Summer.

The bizarre thing is, as hot as it is, i’ve asked others in my section about their air conditioning, and they said that their central air conditioning system does get a split here and there. That is when I found out that I had a problem. It seemed there was some air getting out through my ductwork, and the answer to this was to have the air ducts sealed! With duct sealing everything, it will keep the cool air going around my house, and the air conditioning will absolutely reach the temperature set on the thermostat. I made a call to my HVAC supplier in town to set up an Heating plus Air Conditioning repair appointment for the duct sealing. I am lucky to have 1 of their yearly Heating plus Air Conditioning repair plans, so I absolutely do not have to pay for the duct sealing. I pay a fee of two hundred dollars a year for this service, and I have to tell you, it has saved myself and others a lot of currency! This duct sealing task that I have to get done now would have costed myself and others close to that yearly fee. So, you do the math! I had the heating and cooling workman out about a morning later to do the ducttoil sealing. And as of this week, my thermostat reads what it should, and my air conditioning absolutely gets a split here and there!

I seriously suppose I made a substantial mistake by throwing out our outdated boiler

For the past 5 years, our wife & I were sharing a beautiful little 2 home office house up north.

We’ve been working on renovating the house & adding new features to it, including some changes to the house regarding appliances, but one big change both of us were hung up on for a while was the replacement of our furnace.

We’ve had a boiler in the basement for ages, which was heated using an oil heater. While the boiler had been faithfully working for us over the last half-decade, there have been times where it seemed to struggle to keep us moderate through the night. Also, it typically sounds appreciate the boiler is kettling now. If you weren’t aware, “kettling” refers to a furnace that has too many mineral deposits inside it & can’t function always. It sounds appreciate nothing, but kettling is entirely a death sentence for a boiler! Anyway, when I heard that sound, I thought we’d better switch to a new furnace – & fast. Both of us wound up cutting the connections for the boiler, throwing it out, & replacing it with a gas furnace to heat our home. At first, both of us were surprised by how much warmer the house felt with the gas furnace running! However, things began to change, as both of us noticed that the heat in the house felt drier to us. Both of us noticed this change & immediately, both of us began to wonder – what if replacing the boiler was a mistake? Well, the boiler provides a particular amount of humidity as it heats the house, so now both of us just had dry heat. It was a rough situation, as you might imagine!

It’s not typically easy trying to live with the minimum

My friends & I appreciate to go on what both of us call “nature trips”… Basically, both of us go out camping, but both of us try to rely on as few new supplies as both of us can, then if it uses GPS, relies on data, or needs a special controller to work, both of us don’t use it! Instead, both of us use only “primitive” technology, or stuff that both of us can make out of spare parts that both of us might have available. Both of us do this mostly because it’s a fun activity, although I suppose it’s also useful for a survival situation! However, I will say that it’s not typically easy to live with just minimal equipment or supplies. Plus, our trips are planned & we’re ready to live off of virtually nothing; When it happens in real life, it’s a major hassle! That’s what happened to me the other afternoon, as our home’s furnace broke down without warning. As the electric furnace sit silent in the basement of our home, I had to rely instead on the fireplace I typically kept scrub for decorative purposes. With the furnace being down for an indefinite amount of time, there was no telling when it would be ready for use again! I had to make sure the fireplace was even safe to use before I could just throw a log in & hope to get a fire going, thankfully the fireplace was clear to use, although I only had enough wood to get through a afternoon! I had to leave & grab more firewood, & when I got back home the house was already reaching a chilly temperature. It was a nice thing I poured antifreeze in the pipes, or I would’ve been in rough shape! See what I mean? Minimal living only works when you’re ready for it!

Finding a way to stop the heat of the kiln

My hubby made his name in the art community as a sculptor, but at first he did big showcase pieces, but over time as he refined his craft he focused on smaller object, however little pieces he could make particularly in his current home studio, plus fire in his hand-made kiln out back.

This is where he honestly shined the brightest, plus also what brought him the most personal satisfaction.

After the automobile accident he was really weak for a long time, plus just lacked the strength to work. This in turn wounded his confidence plus lust for life. He is getting stronger now, but is still greatly affected by heating plus humidity. This is a tough blow, seeing as how he works with a kiln plus previously was used to high levels of heating on a proper basis. If that was no longer going to work for him, then every one of us needed to find a strong, effective means of cooling down his studio. Finding an cooling system strong enough to offset all that heat was going to be a tough one. I called out a ventilation expert to see what he could recommend, plus he gave us some enjoyable ideas on diverting plus dispersing the heat from the kiln. With some current exhaust vents plus ductwork every one of us could channel most of the heat up plus away, plus then put in a high powered cooling system on the other side of the studio; Combined with the air vents, the current directional cooling system would cool down most of the studio so our hubby could work.

Watching those energy savings

I actually do not like enjoying the night news, but i have no interest in it, do not care what is going on most of the time as well as it flat out depresses me! They never have anything positive to say these days, but so why bother with it? Well, I was over a friend’s house as well as they had the news on, as well as for once, I have to say they entirely said something non-deimportant as well as entirely useful! They did a whole story on energy savings in the country, as well as with it, came a ton of energy savings tips.

The energy savings tips they provided were some things I already knew about, like not leaving lights on when you don’t need them as well as not running the cable set if you’re not enjoying it… But the energy savings tips that actually got our attention were related to the use of heating as well as cooling products.

They said that central heating as well as a/c units were the main cause of ultra high electric bills, as well as that there was a few ways around this, one energy savings tip they provided for Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C use was to buy a few space heating systems for the Winter time instead of using the heating. That a single was actually a shock! I never knew that space heating systems did not use a ton of energy! The other was suggesting buying a few ductless mini split a/c units to split use of your central a/c component in the Summer, however another energy saver I didn’t suppose about! Well, thanks to this news story, I suppose what i’m going to be buying entirely soon!

Living in my sweet Recreational Vehicle

In any event, I never lived anywhere outside of that van for more than a few afternoons, plus I’m still the same way this week.

I suppose my meanderlust started in my childhood, when my folks lived on the road for most of what I can remember! For a while they drifted around in a van following the Grateful Dead, which will tell you how old I am! After that I’m not sure why they did it, maybe they had warrants on them, maybe they just didn’t want to settle down anywhere. In any event, I never lived anywhere outside of that van for more than a few afternoons, plus I’m still the same way this week. I don’t have an old VW van though, I have a sleek RV with cable tv, a shower, plus air conditioning, however the RV plus in identifiable its air conditioning, is so nice I don’t see what else a apartment could offer me, but during the afternoons I rarely even use the weather conditions control, I care about to drive like my folks did with all the windows fully open plus the winds of the road flooding the interior. That is only for while driving, however, because when it is time to park I constantly shut up the windows plus crank the A/C down to the coldest setting, and over the years I have even become rather adept at concernshooting my Heating, Ventilation plus A/C equipment in the vehicle, and without a regular location to live I of course don’t have a regular Heating, Ventilation plus A/C tech who I can trust to service my stuff, so I l received to service it myself. I have found that a lot of standard, weekly upkeep on the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C equipment will keep it running well for a long time.

The great air duct sealing

My central heating & air conditioner plan gets quite a work out in the Summer. The air conditioner seems to never shut off because it is so tepid where I live. The different thing is, as tepid as it is, i’ve asked others in my area about their air conditioner, & they said that their central air conditioner plan does get a break here & there. That is when I found out that I had a problem. It seemed there was some air getting out through my ductwork, & the answer to this was to have the ductworks sealed! With duct sealing everything, it will keep the cool air going around my house, & the air conditioner will actually reach the temperature set on the temperature control. I made a call to my heating & air conditioner company in neighborhood to set up an Heating & Air Conditioning service appointment for the duct sealing. I am lucky to have one of their yearly Heating & Air Conditioning service plans, so I actually do not have to pay for the duct sealing. I pay a fee of 2 hundred dollars a year for this service, & I have to tell you, it has saved myself and others a lot of money! This duct sealing task that I have to get done now would have costed myself and others close to that yearly fee. So, you do the math!
