4 Ways a Multi-Zone Cooling System Can Expand Living Space to the Garage March 8, 2018

4 Ways a Multi-Zone Cooling System Can Expand Living Space to the Garage, Oyster Bay, New York

The garage is more than a space to house cars. It’s become a place to expand interior living, especially when homeowners have the resources to make that area a comfortable environment year-round. With multi-zone cooling and heating, you have control over where and how you moderate the temperature. If you’re planning on taking advantage of that extra space, here are a few ideas of what you can do with it. 

How to Revamp Your Garage

1. Workshop

Workshops have been a garage go-to for decades, a must-have for those who want to accomplish projects in peace. However, the area can get chilly during winter and humid in the summer, which limits your hours. With multi-zone cooling, you can transform your garage into an additional zone, adjusting the temperature as you see fit. 

As a ductless heating and cooling option, it’s simple to manage with the touch of a button, maximizing the time you can spend with your hobby. Add shelving and tables for more space and consider wall treatments and flooring to create an appealing and functional space. 

2. Home Office

Many houses don’t have the extra space indoors, or else families need it for their kids. Conveniently, your garage has ample room for a large office with a desk and computer area, or even a sofa and television to relax on your breaks. This is an excellent option for those who regularly work from home, and with multi-zone cooling and heating, you can keep comfortable year-round.

3. Home Gym

Save money on a membership by creating your own gym. With a welcome renovation, you can add padded flooring, equipment, fitness mats, and a TV to take at-home exercise classes. Since you don’t have to worry about driving to a facility, there are no excuses to neglect your workout routine—just walk out to the garage, stretch, and get started.

4. Bar

Love entertaining? The garage offers plenty of space to create and customize your own bar, complete with kegs, taps, a countertop, swiveling stools, and whatever your heart desires. With multiple people inside, a traditional HVAC system would be hard to manage, but when your garage is a set zone, you can adjust the bar’s temperature to meet your friends’ needs, creating a comfortable space to congregate and socialize.
