Yeah I got really confused when my friend turned up the oven to highest temperature and then changing it back down to 300 after like 30 minutes.
I was like "bruh"
@Tentastic, that's sometimes true but depending on the oven it does work, like for instance I had an oven that took over an hour to heat up to 350° but when we used the broil setting for fifteen minutes and then switched to the baking setting it was pretty much at the right temp
@Finch, but there's a huge difference between broil and oven.
That type of heating would definitely make sense
@Tentastic, right so turning the heat up isn't the same as using a different part of the oven but on some ovens the broil setting is just a higher heat setting that blasts heat out of one specific part and would be similar, but with the home heating thing it doesn't work like that I agree
@Tentastic, it’s weird how sink water doesn’t change temperature very fast, but shower water changes temperature as you turn the handle. I know it’s a different appliance, but it’s still interesting.
@AceWolf456, hopefully your shower has an in line heating element, and it's less water just under pressure, so a change in temperature fast should be expected. A sink however has wider tubing and the source of the heat is usually much farther away. Unless you have an above sink boiler from the 50's
@AceWolf456, Had me at different appliance
@Tentastic, I don't do it so it heats up faster, but I'll put it on 200 when it needs to be 180, just so it definitely is up to temp when I open it and put the stuff in. Obv put the normal temp on after then. I don't like the idea of heat loss from the oven being open, as well as the heat only just reaching what you need and just teetering on that edge. I know that it's a minimal loss but still
@Finch, that's just a busted ass oven
@AceWolf456, i help paint newly built homes and yes it fascinates me.
@AceWolf456, it's about flow rate and material thermal load usually. When you need hot water, you have to clear all the current water between the outlet of the heater and the output of the device be it shower or sink. Standing water does not efficiently move heat anywhere, so you lose the water heat into the pipe as time goes on. This let's the pipes cool off to ambient temperature. As the water starts moving, the heat is lost into the pipes first as it travels, until the pipe between is at the max temperature. Since a shower moves way more water than a sink usually can, the pipes in between reach thermal load quicker and the hot can reach you faster. This is why running your shower for a bit can accelerate the sink heating up, because until the hot water branches off to the shower itself the flow has heated up those pipes leading up to the joint, saving time as the lower flow rate only needs to heat the last run. This in reverse is why people leave taps on to prevent pipes bursting
Everything about this is quite valid.
@ThePandaPool , yes. I have banned my wife from thermostat. She still abuses car heat though, I'll set her side at 74 in winter, and she cranks it to 84 since it's blowing cold air 30 seconds after the car started.
@ThePandaPool , wife crazy?? ThePandaPool ACTIVATE!!!!
Oh boy things to come when I knock up my future waifu
It's me. I needed to hear it
Punctuation, my dude. It's important.
I thought someone was talkn about Texas again.
