Electrical Fires ?
    #338521 - 01/01/10 05:12 PM (7 years, 1 month ago)

Trying to imagine what one would look like starting from some thing like this.

     

or like this

          This one operates at 100 to 105f

What I'm wanting to do is build an enclosed shelf for them to sit on. So I can vent the heat outside. Have no idea if just heat would start a fire or if they would throw out sparks or why they would go bad.

Give me some idea's people.

Thanks

I'm gonna state the obvious and say it's time to upgrade to a digital ballast :wink:  I would stick yours in an enclosed area unless you were venting it with some fans.  You'll fry your ballast otherwise.

No. This vent is just for heat control.

Put some flat carbon filters on the a/c(not in use this week).Have never had a smell problem outside.
