Each room needs air circulation, natural or forced, not important.
For this, there is ventilation. Car enthusiasts are no exception - in the garage ventilation is also necessary.
To create ventilation, it is necessary to ensure the flow of fresh air from the street and the outflow of "exhausted" air from the garage to the street.
You will need
- Lattice, metal and asbestos pipes.
Make a hole for fresh air. Its format and size depend on the imagination and preferences of the motorist himself. This can be multiple holes made in the gates of your garage or the only one, but a large hole in the wall next to the gate. You can make a hole by knocking out bricks and installing a grate.
Choose the diameter. If you are going to use a piece of pipe for air intake, then the diameter will be about 110-210 mm, or a square with sides of 11-21 cm, respectively. The optimum hole size should be 15 mm per 1 sq. M. Meter of garage space.
Make a hole for drawing diagonally on theThe opposite side of the garage. Often this hole is made in the ceiling of the garage, it displays an asbestos or metal pipe, which is 50-90 cm high above the roof of the garage and penetrates into it for 10-20 cm. You can do without a pipe, confine yourself to a hole with a lattice under the ceiling, but using a pipe will be much more effective.
Protect the pipe from moisture, debris, dust andmud. To do this, it is necessary to build a visor over it or buy a ready one. To reduce the condensate in the exhaust pipe, wind it with a heater. To allow ventilation to be regulated, make special shutters on the exhaust and supply pipes. In a warm time, they can be fully opened, and in winter - only partially, to limit the flow of frost air.
