I cut a hole in a wall to insert a 27"TV. The hole aligns with a stairway on
the other side. (about 8 steps.) So the Tv fits into the empty space under
the stairs. Its a split level house. One level in front and two levels in
the back. 1/2 set of stairs lead down and another 1/2 set of stairs lead up.
Not a huge space but enough to hold the TV. I'm concerned with the heat
generated by the TV causing the TV to overheat. I plan on installing a small
fan to vent the space.
There is a large closet next to the space that I can cut a hole through to
put a small fan in.
Would I be better to Pull air into the space and it would exit out the front
around the TV? Or should I turn the fan around and pull air out of the
space, sucking air in from around the front of the TV and blowing it into
the closet. ( the closet is always open. Its got louvered bi-fold doors).
The opening around the TV is about 1/2" on each side and 2" on the top. I'm
going to put a remote temperature sensor inside the enclosure to see how hot
I hope to figure a way to have the fan turn on automatically when the TV
This setup works out well. clears floor space in an already crowded room.
I started cutting the hole the other day while my wife was out shopping. Ha,
She just shook her head!
TIA for any Ideas.
