Another cold weather prep


Recommended Posts

AN1b4dHl.jpg  So we are going to see temperatures in the single diggits in a few days. So this is one of our things we do to contain our heat inside.


  We pull the ducted vent covers off and cover with a sandwich baggy. Then put them back in place. Once they are on if you open and close the door you can see them puff down when the door is opened. And up when the door is closed. There must be some venting to the outside I do believe. It mite be hard to see where it is.

I wonder if that will make the moisture issue greater with less outside air exchange? This is going to be an interesting experience for us to observe. I  assume that you have a big propane supply?

It's likely that when you close the door normally without the vents blocked, the closest vents pressurize the duct slightly, with the air escaping through the vents further away. There may also be some slight air duct leaks between the inner and outer roof layers. Blocking the vents likely wont hurt anything though.
