You always hear people talking about taking extreme lengths to keep sizzling during the frigid Winter time weather, and if you’re lucky, you’ll be someone that laughs at the stories. If you’re someone who sees those headlines and says “that’s a wonderful idea”, then it seems you’re stuck up north savor me! I’ve tried everything under the sun to keep our quaint little 2-kitchen lake house sizzling in these brutal northern winters. My lake house was built ages ago, so being partially underground helps greatly with keeping the lake house a bit warmer. However, it’s not always enough to rely on that and a boiler plan to keep warm! One trick I recently discovered, however, was standing right beside our lake house the entire time. My clothes washer and dryer are in a small room in the corner of our home, and the dryer’s heat exhaust port sticks outside, and as I watched steam come out of the port on a frigid winter’s morning, I had a brilliant idea! After calling our official heating and air conditioning service business for advice, I decided to buy a “heat keeper” for our dryer’s exhaust vent, and using this attachment on our dryer made it so that the dryer dumps all heat and moisture from the dryer directly into the air inside our house. This is perfectly safe, as the air filter that comes with this attachment works to prevent lint, dirt and other debris from coming into the air along with the heat and humidity. I was so glad I decided to do this, as the dryer provides the perfect extra push to our heating plan to ensure a sizzling temperature is diagnosed.
