Just installed a new envirovent, seems to be working properly but it's really loud. Like vacuum cleaner loud. A freebie noise measuring app on my phone put it between 76-82 decibels, and I can't imagine this thing running for the length of a firing, for me and for neighbors. A few questions for the collective: Is noise a known issue for the envirovent II system, or is it possible I have a defective unit? If it is just the way it is, how do you handle the noise? Do you keep it running for the entire time? Has the noise discouraged you from using it? Thanks, all!
Has anyone experience of both the Orton Ventmaster and the Skutt Envirovent 2 downdraft systems? I am in the process of researching a new kiln (in the UK) and the only downdraft venting available come from the US. Very few people seem to use them here in the UK but I see it as a much better option than alternative venting systems. My kiln will be a toploader around 152 Litres ( 5.4 cubic feet) and I fire to around cone 8 typically. I'm interested in quality over price, although they both seem to be similar in cost. Has anyone had the opportunity to compare them and has a view on their performance and/or longevity? Many thanks. Julie
