Root Cellar Vent?
I'm building a small 8x10x8 foot high root-cellar into a hill, the floor
will be about level to the lower elevation so it can't build up with
water. The door will be in middle front of 10'....kind of a walk out basement.
The idea of how to run fresh air into the cellar is what I have to decide soon.
I'm making forms for concrete walls and want to run two holes through
the walls. It seems most air intake...from what I have been reading
is coming in from front, I have the idea of running pipe from the front to
the side and back of both side, initially fresh air coming in from the back/side's....2- 4"diameter pipe. This would allow several feet of under ground air travel, thus making the air somewhat cooler in summer and warmer in winter....having the pipe slightly uphill, so the air coming in is about 6" off the floor. The exhaust air, one only?.. about 4" diameter in middle of cellar. I haven't checked for pipe material yet, hope something like what they use for homes...toilet vent pipe?
Would this work?.. Any help is appreciated.
