[snip] We partially got around this issue by putting the makeup air intake in the basement, and installing a larger fan (10" ducting) so that it tended to heat the whole house rather than just one room. We dumped the air into the ceiling of the living room. The floor would have been nicer cause we could have laid on the vent. But the ducting was ran based on what was easy/cheap and not on what was best.

After the car cools down you need to find the control that lets you take the already chilled air from the passenger compartment and circulate
that air past the Cooling coils in your car. this is better than taking un-chilled outside air and moving it [past your coils and then blowing that
air into the passenger compartment ! This is simply reducing the Air Conditioning load ! This example also works when it is cold outside and
we want a warm interior. What you want to create for this space is a Thermo-Syphoning air movement - to naturally pump heat from your
Sunspace during the day *

Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars. Tiny ad:
