If you are finally taking the plunge and converting your garage to a living space, you will undoubtedly spend plenty of time contemplating every detail in the room from paint color to furniture selection, but the one detail you may not have as a top priority is your air conditioning needs. Without it, your new room can 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.
- 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 a nearby duct that can be connected to your garage. This would need to be completed by an experienced technician. We can consult with you and tell you if this is the right option for your home.
- You can purchase a window air conditioner. If connecting an existing duct is not an option and the space isn’t very large, this could be a great fit. This method does not distribute air as efficiently and will leave a hole in your wall, but can be a very cost-effective option.
- You can install a ductless air conditioner, also known as a mini-split system. This type of air conditioner operates on its own condenser that is 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 means you can get an air conditioning system that can handle your heating needs in the cold months as well.
