Please, please, hold the applause. I just couldn’t take another winter without heat, and I have a kitchen remodel coming up that will require me working in the cold, so I finally installed my shop heater. Yep, it took a long time, but it finally happened.
After running the wrong size gas line to the shop, and didn’t even measure 1/2 pound pressure at the heater, I decided to calculate what would be needed. I guess it would have helped by reading directions first. But, who does that?
Let’s see what the damage was to the pocket book; I had to purchase 125’ of PE-Pex so I could run 32’ underground. Oh, and I had to pick up TWO flex risers to connect to the black pipe at both ends. Between those three items – $325. Would anyone like to buy some 1” PE-Pex?
Now all I have to do is finish dry walling the ceiling and insulating. Looks like the money pit is endless.
In the mean time, it works quite well. At least I won’t have to wear thermal clothing while woodworking.
