Inexpensive heat transport?

Pete Koszulinski | Posted in Energy Efficiency and Durability on


I’m working for a lab that has a room that gets very hot and very noisy. In the winter we’d like to keep the door open to share the heat from room to the office area, but it’s just too loud. Does anyone have a way to transfer the heat from this room to a more quiet office area on the opposite side of the wall?

    I am no pro, but it sounds like you need 2 very large radiators (heat exchangers), water, and a circulating pump.

    This is the easiest way to do it: install a Tjernlund AireShare fan:

    There may be some sound transmission -- but much less than leaving the door open.
