Air Conditioner Options for Your Garage Conversion

So you’re planning on converting your garage into living space as an addition to your house? Many people are doing so as it’s not only a fun and exciting project, but can add a new splash of character to your home. Of course a project like this requires a good deal of preparation. Though we can’t turn you into the consummate handyman, we can help you get set to take on the task by making sure you can weigh all of your garage air conditioner options.

Besides the fun stuff for the game room or man cave you might be building, you need to consider an air conditioner as one of your highest priorities. Without it, your new room figures to be a lot less enjoyable to utilize during hot days and nights. There are three options to think about when thinking about what kind of air conditioner is ideal for your converted garage.

    1. You can connect an existing air duct from your house to the walls of your garage. This is only an option if the garage and the home are connected and have an easily accessible duct that can be connected to your garage. This is obviously a job for someone with expert knowledge, so consult with a specialist from Stevenson Service Experts to find out if this is the right option for you.
    1. Install a ductless air conditioner, also known as a mini-split system. This type of air conditioner works on its own condenser that’s installed right outside the garage. The indoor AC mounts to the wall near the ceiling. A mini-split system is also a special kind of packaged HVAC system, which allows you to get an air conditioning system that can handle your heating needs in the dead of winter as well.
    1. Purchase a window air conditioner. If connecting an existing duct is not a choice and there isn’t that much space to cool, this could be a good solution. However, there are a couple downsides to this choice. It is not the most efficient for evenly distributing air, and is not the most efficient for energy usage. If there is not an existing window, a window air conditioner will leave a large hole in your wall that could look inviting to a determined thief.

If you’re ready to press on with your garage conversion project, make sure your air conditioner needs are properly met. After all, an extension of your house should feel just as comfortable as every other room.
