Your garage is a suitable storage space for workout equipment and old paint, but it would serve you much better as a craft room or spare bedroom. While refinishing the walls and putting down a new floor may not be very difficult, keeping your repurposed garage at a comfortable temperature is a different story. Fortunately, multi-zone heating and cooling systems solve this problem, eliminating the need to attach your garage to a traditional ducted system.
Independent Temperature Zones
Garages tend to be warmer in the summer and colder in the winter than the rest of your house, making them uncomfortable even if the walls are well-insulated. Because the thermostat controlling a traditional HVAC system is far away from the garage, your heater or air conditioner may not even do much to affect this room.
With a multi-zone system, you can set temperatures for each section of your house with independent controls. Not only will this help you save money on utility bills, but it will also ensure every room in your house is comfortable—including the garage.
Best of all, installing a multi-zone heating and cooling system can reduce the cost of your garage refinishing project, as the contractor won’t have to spend several days tearing into the walls and running ducts. In most cases, a ductless system can be installed in a matter of days without the mess and hassle of a traditional HVAC system.
