Operating an electric kiln in the Canadian cold

28 November 2012 - 01:53 PM

I have a small studio in my basement and am just getting back to pottery after having my second child. I have always used a nearby gallery to fire my work. Now I'm considering buying a kiln so that I can fire myself. I don't have a lot of space and am thinking of putting the kiln in my shed. I live in Toronto, Canada and we can have humid summers and cold winters. Would there be issues with this setup (e.g. condensation, longer times to reach temps or cooling too quickly, etc)?

I would appreciate any thoughts or insights before I jump in! Thanks
