Nyle vent.
« on: July 06, 2020, 05:34:59 PM »
Does the Nyle vent open when it has power and then close again when power is removed?  Hope that makes sense.  Thanks.

My guess is yes as I hear the relay close and the fan kick on when it opens.

lol.  When I was a new firefighter back in 1992 we didnt have fancy alerter systems that turned on our bunk room lights.  Instead we had a clapper that had a lamp plugged into it.  When the loud claxton would go off for a call, the clapper would turn on the lamp.  Of course it also turned on in the middle of the night when someone would sneeze or cough.

Just wondering if i can buy just the vent and wire it to a thermostat that turns on power when the temp reaches the set point.  So the vent would open when too hot and close once the temp goes back down.

The Nyle vents are passive louvers.  They don't have a mechanism themselves, when the fan is running, the airflow is enough to swing the louvers open.  When the fan turns off, the airflow ceases and the louvers close by gravity.
  
As such, its always a good idea to occasionally manually trip the louvers by hand to make sure they aren't sticking.

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, theyre burned, and you cant fix them.

Sawing is fun for the first couple million boards.

OH, I laughed WAY too hard at this. When I started as a volley, I thought I needed a pager charger that had a set of dry contacts to turn on a light to get me going. That was pretty stupid. I passed on it because I didn't want to disturb the wife too much. As it turned out my brain was trained such that before the first set of tones finished I would have my socks on and be out of the bedroom before the dispatch was finished. Oh, and the wife? For some reason she hardly ever heard the pager go off. I could leave on a call at midnight and get back at 5:30 and the only reason she knew I was gone at all was because she heard me coming in around the time she got up. In some (very small) way, I miss those days.

@Old Greenhorn yeah, I was already working fulltime when I got married, but then I started volunteering for the dept. where we live and I had the same things.  She would not hear me leave and then wonder what I was doing up when I was coming back home at all hours.  When we had kids, I stopped volunteering.
