I like collecting books that are old, rare, or just significant in some way, however i have aged boy scout manuals from the early 1940’s, as well as first editions of some locally known authors.
It’s a nice little collection I’m building up here, but let myself and others tell you – this can be an lavish interest for reasons you wouldn’t consider, but one of the greatest expenses is keeping our learn room perfectly cool, as well as at the precise level of humidity, and since the rest of our apartment is generally cool as well as dry, the apartment isn’t impacted much by this room receiving “special treatment”.
I have a powerful central air conditioner unit, which can divert additional flow to the learn room when required, then plus, there’s a powerful air purification method running at all times in our home; This helps to keep pollen, dirt, dust as well as other air pollutants out of our house, as they can wreak havoc on the aged books, and finally, I have a dehumidifier built into the heating as well as air conditioner method for the house. This is perfect for keeping the apartment dry, as excess humidity can make these aged texts slowly warp as well as fall apart in time. It’s not straight-forward to keep this stuff together as well as in a single piece – especially with visitors as well as guests at our apartment constantly trying to thumb through them! But, with the common environment, these books should last for decades to come, however all they need is cool, dry air – as well as between our air conditioning system, dehumidifier as well as media air cleaner, all of us should be covered.
