Painting Interior Walls Without Heat!


My Husband and I have 2 weeks to move into our new home, we are working on the furnace, the only heat we have been using right now is kerosene heater. We need to put compound on the walls and then paint, do we need to have the furnace on and the walls up to a certain temp or can we just use the kerosene heater? Also can we put our kitchen cabinets in without having heat? I also have one more question, we are re-doing the plumbing can we use PVC for hot water?

can you run 220 v electric heaters? just plug them into the dryer and oven outlets. regarding pvc why would you do that when you can run a proper water line with pex

How would we know, you chose not to add your location to your profile so you could be any where on the planet.
You need to go back and add your location!!! Just go to Quick links and edit it.
What's the the lowest temp.?
If your using one of those torpedo kerosene heaters I hope your leaving a window open.
PVC is only for drain lines!!
Supplys should be Pex, Copper or CPVC.
All many lines need to be 3/4" and 1/2" for fixtures.

I would be very wary of kerosene heaters, the exhaust they give off is bad for you and the walls. The temp should be above 50. I would wait till the furnace was fixed.

Fix the furnace. Portable kerosene heaters aren't suppose to be left running unattended.

Thanks everyone! Sorry i didn't add my location last night, Its on there now. Southern Ohio. We do not leave the kerosene heater on when we leave the home, we always have a window cracked while running it I was just wondering is the heat from the kerosene heater enough heat to paint the walls I have heard the walls need to be warmed and the temp outside plays a factor in painting, just trying to hurry and paint getting low on time and the furnace is being worked on.Our lowest temp here recently has been crazy on day it will be 28 and on another day it will be 40. For the water lines we are using CPVC i was just wondering if we could run the hot through them or will the CPVC melt?

CPVC is approved for use with hot water; PVC is not. It isn't going to melt. Doesn't matter what the temperature is to hang cabinets. Drywallers around here use propane heaters to dry the compound faster. Read one of your paint cans to see what it says about what the temperature needs to be. Hope you haven't stored the paint in this house; paint, especially latex, is not supposed to be allowed to freeze.

Not a good idea to heat the house while your there and paint it, then turn the heat off over night.
