i have a home studio and always wear a mask (a 3M N95 face mask) and
safety glasses whenever using my foredom for anything. i recently
enrolled in a casting class and of course use it when making
investment as well. there is a proper ventilation system at my class
at home, however, i don’t have a ventilation system. i work in my
basement which is almost 1300 sq. feet. I have been planning to set
up a HEPA filtration system w/vacuum.
Do you think a HEPA filter system would suffice?
I have a piece of equipment that has large hosing/tubing and a
vacuum that would suck the air from my soldering station and direct
it to the HEPA filter, but I have yet to get the filter. I am trying
to avoid a full ventilation system for 2 reasons, one- it still spews
toxins into the environment, and two- it is not as energy efficient.
what are your thoughts? would my home studio safe enough
w/vacuum/HEPA system? also, it’s worth mention that at this time I
have a full-time day job and only work in my studio maybe 12hrs a
