I finally have my sewing room and equipment to a point where it is almost exactly where I want it.
I have one big problem though. The AC in my room doesnt cut it. I talked to my AC guy and he says I have enough airflow that it is the heat from the iron, the lights and the fact the room is on the second floor with a full southern exposure and the fourth wall is the garage attic. He suggested insulation which is going to cost as much as a long arm. My room can easily reach 100 with the main house AC set at 70.
Fans do not cut it. I have a ceiling fan and two others in the room. I have resorted to setting the whole house to 60 to get my room to about 80.
I tried to get a window air unit but the windows are side by side cranks. The only thing I could get was a portable unit but I really dont have a way to vent it.
How do you all deal with the heat and sun when you quilt in the summer? Can I use one of those portable AC's and "vent" it to the hallway without getting carbon monoxide poisoning?
