As a hobby, I refinish hardwood furniture. I visit antique shops, garage sales, flea markets, as well as estate sales, looking for furniture for a cheap price. Very often, appealing pieces cost really little because they are coated in layers of paint or missing some hardware. The process to restore the pieces is labor-intensive. I first coat the furniture in severe chemical stripper to peel away the paint. I then spend hours going over the surface with an electric palm sander. I finish the project with a minimum of many coats of varnish. The process creates a tremendous amount of dust as well as fumes. It requires a well-ventilated, clean as well as temperature controlled workspace. When I built a little workshop in my backyard, I couldn’t figure out how to handle heating as well as cooling. I certainly couldn’t afford to spend a ton of cash on a hobby. I also had really little upgrade space to labor with. I finally called a local Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C company for some advice. She checked out my workshop as well as instantly suggested a ductless heat pump. The ductless heat pump is super small as well as lightweight. The indoor air handler mounted on the wall as well as is connected to a compact outdoor compressor. The whole plan required little more than a small hole in the wall as well as access to electricity. The Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C company had it installed as well as running in less than an hour. The heat pump provides both heating as well as cooling, operates efficiently as well as effectively filters dust as well as fumes from the air. It didn’t cost all that much as well as is entirely perfect for maintaining a comfortable year round temperature.
