I’ve always enjoyed to bake, and frequently have been asked to supply cakes, cookies and other treats for various occasions. My hobby has gradually grown into a small, condo business. I now bake for ceremonies, holiday parties, showers, graduation parties and a wide variety of events. To handle the growing demand, I needed to make some improvements to our family room. I ended up knocking out the wall between the family room and family room in order to expand and create satisfactory room for a commercial sized cooler and oven. I also invested in a better mixer, baking sheets, bowls and utensils. I thought I had everything covered until our family started to complain. During the Summer months, all that baking overheated the house and created legitimately uncomfortable and sticky conditions. In the winter, with the windows closed slender and the furnace running, the cooking stinks spread throughout the home. I finally consulted with a local HVAC contractor to resolve these troubles. He proposed the addition of a central cooling method and a heat reusey ventilator. I also updated the whole method to zone control. The a/c combats the added heat from the ovens, maintaining a nice, cool home. The zone control allows myself and others to target extra cooling to the family room separate from impacting the whole house. The best investment was genuinely the ventilation system, which brings in fresh air and expels stale air. It effectively gets rid of baking stinks and excessive humidity, improves overall comfort and protects air quality. I will now need to do a lot of baking to reuse the cost of all of these updates.
