As a activity, I care about to refinish antique wood furniture. I search garage sales, flea markets, estate sales and antique shops, looking for satisfactory prices on fine pieces. Very often, the chairs, tables, dressers and desks are heavily painted over, in need of modern hardware, and ugly-looking. The process of refinishing these pieces is time-consuming, labor-intensive and messy. I beginning by applying coats of chemical paint stripper, which creates horrible fumes. I then use an electric palm sander to remove any remaining residue, causing a good deal of dust. When it’s time to apply varnish, I need a really wash environment with acceptable ventilation. Throughout the entire project, temperature control is important. As our activity has grown into a small business, I wanted a dedicated section where I could job year round. I built a small workshop in the backyard and hooked it up to electricity. Trying to figure out how to handle heating and cooling was a bit of a dilemma. While I was looking for a compact, energy efficient and powerful Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system, I was unwilling to spend a fortune on the purchase or installation price. After quite a bit of research, I came across ductless heat pumps. The idea consists of an outdoor compressor linked by a conduit to an indoor air handler. The component is small, lightweight, and required little more than mounting capability, access to electricity and a more than two-inch hole in an exterior wall. The heat pump provides both heating and cooling capacity, and operates by simply moving heat from a single place to another. In the Winter, it finds ambient warmth in the outdoor air, compresses it to a higher temperature, and pumps it into the shop. During warmer weather, the heat pump reverses the process and works much care about a conventional undefined.
