Game Room HVAC & Temperatures
« on: March 02, 2011, 06:59:11 PM »
Hey everyone!  Just saw some chit chat on Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning in the V3 Thread.    Here are some of my viewpoints:

Where you live is for sure a deciding factor on everything!

It is usually always Hot and Humid where I live, so I require a house sized 2 &1/2 ton A/C unit with Gas Heat.  I also have a de-humidifier in the game room to keep the humidity at a constant 40%   This keeps the game room cool and comfortable year round.

Notes:   

Humidity above 60% will cause damage and increase the chances of mold and silverfish.  Paper and posters will curl.  It will feel damp and icky.

I don't know exactly how the weather is where most on this board are, but from what I gather from where Bruno lives, it's like the upper U.S. here, bitter cold winters, and lower humidity.

If you have a smaller game room, like the size of  two bedrooms etc, you might could get away with a smaller heater.  But if it's way larger, Gas would be a better option than electricity.   

I keep my Thermostat set for Heat at 70  and A/C is set at 77, With the de-humidifer, it makes it seem so much cooler in the gameroom in the summer when it's 98 outside with 88% humidity!
