iDoes a super hot weather affects your figures?..n/a

I live in Bay Area California and it's hot today as in!
I'm worried that the figure will melt coz it's hella hot.
Do you guys have any idea if a figure will lean coz it's hot?
do u think it will affect the figure even though it's not directly affected by the sunlight?
But it's still hot and I think my figures feel what I felt

Yea portable air conditioner. I was looking to get one (especially 6K unit was good choice as it eats less power for less output); but, too bulky for my own good. It might be good to hide, but it still have a tube that need to be put out and might become noticeable when blowing out hot air.

There are also 10-12lb units that are 1k-1.5k btu power called zero breeze on kick-starter or Samsung coolpresso which was pretty neat; but, not sure if it will work well to make a climate controlled detolf. (not sure if worth the money), I was thinking about getting Sammy one when I go to ROK when visit and bring one back as it can be had for 170... (they all need exhaust tube or else will make your room burning hot).

If living in desert probably can use a swamp cooler (which is basically fan using evaporate water, but it will not work here as it is humid).

I am going to put up with running central when too hot and ice packs when somewhat hot, so I don't have to run central.

carbonate (2 dag(en) geleden) #22421353how about get a small portable unit that is easily hide-able?
You mean like a portable A/C? Does that work or which is better?

how about get a small portable unit that is easily hide-able? I was looking into Haier hpb08xcm 8K portable or Keystone KSTAP06D 6K unit which are lightest at 40lbs...

2hu (2 dag(en) geleden) #22421149No, it shouldn't. Just keep an A/C going and keep 'em off sunlight.
Pfft. I went to college in the Phoenix area. My god was that horrible.
and the Bay Area shouldn't be that bad. I'm around the LA area and I bet it's hotter here!

Yes they say it's way hotter in LA than in the Bay Area. But damn for me that's the worst day ever! Intensely hot that day.

Heldrik (3 dag(en) geleden) #22373269Here in SW France, the temperature can reach 40°C, thus making going outside like going to hell. I love my region but I hate its muggy summers with a passion (and to crown it all, its winters are damp). Summer can go choke itself on a big rusty pole or a splintery post. This is why I like autumn and winter: when you're cold, you can always wear more clothes, but when you're hot, you're kinda screwed. There's always the option to remove all your clothes (try this at work and see what happens) but you (still) can't remove your own skin without dying in gory and atrocious suffering. Thankfully, I have A/C in my living room where my figures are, but that means that even with closing the windows and shutters, my office and bed room are nos as cool as I'd want them to be. Oh well, at least I have it, so I'm not going to complain, am I?
As for figures, like many said, it's important to have them not in direct sunlight. The best way, if you have a Detolf or a shelf, is perhaps to put it near the wall that's bathed in the light. If that's not really possible, then try putting it near the north wall, where its exposition'd be minimum.

I can't remove all my clothes though :)) especially at work :)). Thank god we do have an A/C at work. But in our apartment, nope not allowed.

carbonate (4 dag(en) geleden) #22357791Dallas summers getting hot, was getting by with few blocks of ice packs in the storage at 90F (condensation is bad though need trays); but, if it's getting to 95F then will need to turn on A/C. Thinking about what to do still when it gets burning because A/C bills... it is not 24/7 or when get a detolf to finally display when get own room.
Ikr! Bills! It's not that hot at night but still hot in the day or in the afternoon.

Kirenisa (4 dag(en) geleden) #22357672If you're extremely worried about it perhaps invest in a window ac unit? They're cheaper than having a house unit installed. Also if it gets to hot and if you don't pay for water.. shut all of the windows and open all the doors except the one that go outside.. then run the shower on max cold water and place a big fan inside the door of the bathroom it'll cool your place down some. (Of course this isn't something you should leave running but you could do this during the peak of the heat if you're at home that is.
But uhm.. most figures in my experience can hold up to heat decently.. just make sure if they're in a box to air them out now and again or open your display case so they can breath better. I think worse case is older nendoroids / figures will get sticky sometimes.. I think it has to be extremely hot for figures to melt. However over time it may cause some issues maybe..? I'm no expert so I can't give you an answer outside of what I've experienced since I didn't have ac up until last year.

I've bought something to cool the air down in my apartment. And thank god it's not too hot compared the day I posted this.
