If you’re looking for a way to expand your living space without adding space to your home, refinishing your garage is a great option. Along with the endless possibilities of a converted garage, however, you’ll also face some significant obstacles, including wiring it for electricity and keeping the space comfortable throughout the year. Ductless mini-split heating and cooling may be the ideal solution, with some significant advantages over your traditional system.
Why Ductless Mini-Split HVAC Is Perfect for a Garage Remodel
Independent Climate Control
Traditional ducted HVAC systems are controlled by a central thermostat, which naturally causes some inefficiencies. While the temperature around the thermostat might be perfect, other rooms with more sun exposure or less insulation might be too hot or too cold. Ductless mini-split heating and cooling eliminates this problem with separate controls for each area of the house. This can be especially useful for a finished garage, which might be insulated differently than the rest of the house. Not only will your home be more comfortable, but you’ll most likely see a drop in your utility bills since your HVAC system won’t be working overtime to compensate for hot or cold spots.
Lower Renovation Costs
Ductless mini-split systems aren’t just more convenient; they’re less expensive to install. Normally, your contractor would have to tear out some of the wall and ceiling to run ducts and install equipment, which can take days or even weeks. Because they don’t require any ducting, mini-split systems can usually be installed in a day or two without damaging your drywall or ceilings.
