Just spitballin' here.

 

I have a room in my house, in the basement, that is always cool; pretty much stays at 68dF year round, no matter what.

 

This makes it a great room for certain things like brewing, and other things where you need a constant low-ish room temperature.   

 

So I got to thinking.  In my attic, in the summer, it's almost always around 130dF.  

 

Is that useful for anything?

LOL.

 

I am trying to think of "things that should be stored at warm temperatures for best results" and coming up empty :D

Pretty much this.  I was up in my attic earlier this week and I was completely drenched with sweat when I came down from there.  Don't store anything up there... it's where the sun lives.  :D

Even with soffit grilles and ventilation fans in the attic, it is still scorching. Just don't pull too much hot air out of your attic. There is nothing stored there that has a low melt temp. lol

I have one of those rooms in my house.  It's the balcony that overlooks the greenhouse.  It is open to the greenhouse, but doesn't have good light.  I need to keep it open because the windows are the vent for the greenhouse.  Without those open, it gets well into the 130s every day.  Too hot for the plants.  But no one wants to be there.  I have no idea what to do with it.

Stirling engine.

I've thought about building one to run a small generator, even if the power output can only charge small electronics. They're just fascinating to me. To bad a Carnot engine isn't more than theoretical.

Works for me... I cut the plants down, and hang in the garage(hottest room in the house) for a few days, trim and cure in flip top bell jars.

Tell me how you dry your weed?
