I am constantly working on our home upgrading and remodeling all part of home ownership. Living in Iowa there are days with extreme weather either hot or frigid cold. In order for me to use my air compressor in the garage I have to prop open the door and run the hose in leaving the door ajar while working. This was not a good situation and I came up with a solution, a small pass through to run the hose through without having the entry door open.
While using the pass through I stuff rags around the house for further benefit.
I cut 1-1/2” foam plugs to insulate the pass through while I’m not using it. Pretty good set-up works great and the wife didn’t really mind the new hole I made in the wall for it.

Great idea and practical too. I keep thinking of doing something similar to this. I just have to run the line up my old Laundry chute. It was not a good location for it, because the laundry landed on top of the furnace. I actually moved the laundry upstairs to a large closet in the main hallway when we moved in. That was 25 years ago. That chute has been a door to nowhere since then. Thanks, for making me think about it again though. I have a quiet 4 Gallon Husky in the basement. The garage one is really noisy 32 Gal C-Man, so the access door might work for that one. :) Dan
