  • Heat

    Who works in there shop in this heat? Who has AC in their shop?
    I am not a big fan of the heat, not 95 anyway. I would be perfectly fine with 70-75.
    In the future I will look for a summer home where it's cold.
    Thankfully I have AC in my shop. It is a 2 stage unit. The compressor is outside and the condenser and fan are hung on the wall. Everyday I go out there I thank the man who invented AC.
    Where is it cooler this time of the year? Any homes or preferably condo's for sale?

    Since my shop is in my attached garage, it tends to stay under 78 degrees no matter what the outside temperature is...if I remember to leave the garage door closed, so working in it in 95 degree outside heat is not too much of a problem. I do need to heat it in the winter though.

    A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

      Haven't been able to work in my garage for 3 days. Every day into the mid 90's. Supposed to be better today - now I have to play catch-up.

        My workshop is in the basement. Our house is A/C which we use sparingly but with the heat wave (95F +) here in Ontario it is a blessing.

        My problem is that the basement gets cold so that I have to come up for some heat every once and awhile. No vents open to basement and we have a couple of cold air returns but still cool.

        It won't be long and the heat wave will pass and we are looking for nice weather.

          I have a fairly small workshop 10'x20' so It doesn't cost an arm and a leg to

          run a small 5000 BTU airconditioner. My shop stays cooler if I keep it closed up

          in hot weather as I have it well insulated.
