Comfortable heat in a sleeper house

3 posts in this topic

I am sure others on this board have encountered this situation…The air in my sleeper fish house is way too hot when retiring to the top bunks while the air on the lower bunks is a little on the cool side. I usually end up turning the furnace off at night so whoever is in the top bunks can breathe and get some sleep.

Any solutions to achieve a uniform air temperature in the fish house? I know a ceiling fan would help, but we are sans electricity while on ice.

I went and picked up what look like fans from computer servers at an unclaimed freight for five bucks apiece. They draw a very low amp rate and I was able to run three fans for over 9 hours on a 3/4 full vex battery. I have one pushing heat off of the heater and the other two pushing cold air off the floor toward the ceiling, do not reverse it, I know it doesn't make sense but it works and my shack is nice and evenly heated now!

A good way to circulate the air is to mount a fan in the bottom of a peice of tubing. Tubing size tbd by the size of the fan. Mount the tubing vertically on the wall and have the top about a foot or so below the ceiling. Have the fan mounted so it will blow the coldest air off the floor and up into the hot air at the ceiling. This will create circulation in the house, and can raise and lower the floor-ceiling temps 20 or 30 degs. or more. The more air you move the more even the temps will become. This will also work much better than just a fan blowing without directing the air. In this way you can get just 1 fan to do the work of 2 or 3. Just remember that a fan pushing cold air 6 ft vertically will not move as much as its rating says, and you should probably cut its rating in half or so. An 8x10 with 8 ft ceiling is 640 cu ft. If you have a 100 cfm fan that moves 50 cfm you should get a full exchange in about 13 min. This will also work better at setting up a circulation if it is mounted opposite the heater. grin.gif

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
    • Yea yea all ya auld pharts would  pass out the minute she popped the first button!!
    • Would he get a free hoodie for his efforts?
    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
