An update on the bus/shed heater.


It is now powered by a 30A power supply, and the exhaust is extracted with a 150mm fan and ducting.

I got a whole lot of ducting leftovers for $60 off marketplace. The fan was a freebee from when I worked at a tech company in chch, they cleared the storage out and let us take what we wanted, I grabbed loads of shit. I still have boxes of ally brackets and bus bars in my container...

The fan is pulling right on that exhaust so I checked the temps while running it, it hits 43 degrees on high, 30 on low. That ducting isn't sealed so it is sucking air as well. The fan is a Pabst that is rated for 70+ deg so should be sweet.

Still need to mount the supply and an RCD in a box for safetys and cut a hole in the shed to waft the fumes out.
