For the love of never ending strings...
Is it true that the Norwegians were the first to cut holes in the roof of
their shelters in order to let out the smoke from their fires?
Since huts are typically shipped w/o holes on the roof, aren't these added
holes adversely effecting the flames.
By cutting these holes didn't they sacrifice heating efficiency for "safety"
Since wood was much cheaper then, I'm sure it was not real concern.
With the high cost of wood these days, should a HVAC Guy like yourself close
Just want to know what HVAC techs were doing thousands of years ago.
And please, before you tell everyone your right & we're wrong, take a bath
So you're saying that HO's modified the design from factory specs to
make it safer or more ergonomic? Sounds like smart HO's to me.
The hole creates a draft which brings in more fresh air through gaps
in the walls that prevents complete flame oxygen starvation. So no, I
wouldn't say that a hole in the roof is "adversely" affecting the
flames - I'd say it's enhancing it.
A hole in the roof would have enhanced or increased the BTU output of
the fire *and* increased safety.
I'm waiting for you to show some.
No, I'd want to run a duct to the hole to insure that only the
combustion air went out through the hole and not heated, clean,
Those weren't HVAC techs. They were HO's.
The HVAC techs were knocking on their doors trying to sell them heated
