How to Lower Heat
    #4159447 - 05/10/05 10:38 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Anyone have some good ideas on how to lower temp in a room with no window? There is a fresh air vent for a dryer hookup that goes outside maybe get a squirrel cage fan?? I'm not interested in using ice at all because i would rather have something automated to control the temp and I don't want to hastle with ice. My house is air conditioned, but not central air. I could cool the room down if i left the door open but i keep it closed with a hepa running 24/7 to fight possible contams. Also I should note that the door is kept closed to keep cats out too. Room size is approximately (7' x 8'x 9') (LxWxH). Temps are starting to reach in the mid 80s during the afternoon when the door is left closed. I read a post once about using an electric thermo controller for about $80 that could turn on a cooling unit such as an open fridge? Any better suggestions?

>>There is a fresh air vent for a dryer hookup that goes outside<<



If you want/can spend the bucks, a small portable window or free standing type air con unit (with thermostat) on a shelf, the floor (or wherever) rigged to exhaust the heat exchanger out the dryer vent would work - well.

Has anyone had any success with using a small sized fridge with the door open running 24/7?? maybe it might be enough to cool down the room 7x8x9
Trying to look for a cheaper alternative to a $400 portable air conditioner for such a small area.

that would be far to wasteful of electricity, the compressor would run constantly
and it wasnt designed for that type of cooling application, it wouldnt take long to die

You didnt search very hard. You can find them for much cheaper..more like 100.

The only ones that I can find for under 100 are ones that use ice or water to cool the room. I guess I will just leave the door open during the hot hours of the day.
