The last couple of days I've been relocating my photo studio space from an office space to a warehouse. I didn't need to pay utilities separately before, but will now. So I'm wondering about how I can cool the warehouse on the cheap. Thoughts?

It seems that there are solar powered aircon units available now, but like any HVAC application installation and  running cost depends on a lot of other variables. The volume to be cooled, the drop in temperature needed, and the insulation, and control of ventilation in the building would dictate how many units and what size you would need.

I have ceiling fans in my studio. Keep your studio AC off or very low unless there are people there. Shorts and t-shirts. Also, if you're lucky it is built on a slab which works as a great heat sink.

I think we have the opposite problem.  My studio space has been freezing, I ended up putting in a 45kw gas heater (which only took the edge off).


For you I would recommend opening shutter doors and trying to get some air movement.  Fans will also be your friend too. Hopefully the heat will rise and escape.
