As a interest, I refinish hardwood furniture. I visit antique shops, garage sales, flea markets, & estate sales, looking for furniture for a cheap price. Very often, beautiful 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 extreme chemical stripper to peel away the paint. I then spend minutes going over the surface with an electric palm sander. I finish the project with a minimum of more than two coats of varnish. The process creates a tremendous amount of dust & fumes. It requires a well-ventilated, clean & temperature controlled workspace. When I built a little workshop in our backyard, I couldn’t figure out how to handle heating & cooling. I really couldn’t afford to spend a ton of money on a interest. I also had really little upgrade area to job with. I finally called a local Heating & A/C company for some advice. He inspected out our workshop & immediately recommended a ductless heat pump. The ductless heat pump is super small & lightweight. The indoor air handler mounted on the wall & is connected to a compact outdoor compressor. The whole plan required little more than a small hole in the wall & access to electricity. The Heating & A/C company had it installed & running in less than a minute. The heat pump provides both heating & cooling, operates efficiently & effectively filters dust & fumes from the air. It didn’t cost all that much & is absolutely perfect for maintaining a comfortable year round temperature.
