    co2 is 1.5 times heavier than air. and a 10% concentration is considered lethal. you should not be using it in an enviroment like you are describing.if you have a garage do it there or on a deck outdoors. those 2x20 cm fans are probably located high on the wall so in effect they are removing the air from your basement as the co2 settles on the floor slowly filling the room.

    MUCH better fumes wise, also capable of going down to -120 degrees before it starts to thicken.

    Funnly enough no........... my cellar has a door and a coal chute, i am in the process of unblocking, as it is a old yorkshire stone house, so its not like modern cellars in the uk where it has no window.

    2nd thanks for the advice but no, the 2x20cm fans are actually located low to the floor, for just the reasons you described. I was aware of that issue but thank you very much anyways

    I havent actually tested yet mate, havent even made my first run, im just preparing the cellar for when i get my kit. Buying it off johnny bravo, he made me an offer i couldnt refuse

    Venting i.e two 2x20cm fans low to floor blowing out through the open door anda coal chute directly outside.

    I planning on doing a video blog of this asap.
