Air Conditioner Options for Your Garage Conversion

So you’re thinking about converting your garage into another room as an addition to your house? All kinds of people are doing so as it’s not only a fun and exciting project, but can add a fresh dose of character to your home. Of course a project like this requires a good deal of preparation. Though we can’t turn you into a professional handyman, we can help you prepare to complete the conversion by making sure you can weigh all of your garage air conditioner options.

Besides the entertainment for the game room or man cave you might be building, you need to think about an air conditioner as one of your most pressing priorities. Without it, your new room figures to be a lot less fun to be in during summer. There are a few options to weigh when thinking about what kind of air conditioner is best for your converted garage.

    1. You can connect an existing air duct from your house to the walls of your garage. This can happen only if the garage and the home are connected and have a conveniently accessible duct that can be connected to your garage. This is definitely a job for someone with expert knowledge, so consult with an expert from Norrell Service Experts to find out if this is a viable 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 sits right outside the garage. The indoor AC mounts to the wall near the ceiling. A mini-split system is also a type of packaged HVAC system, which allows you to get an air conditioning system that can handle your heating needs in the winter months as well.
    1. Purchase a window air conditioner. If connecting an existing duct is not a choice and the room isn’t that big, this could be a a fine choice. However, there are a couple downsides to this method. It is not the most efficient for evenly distributing air, and is not the most efficient for energy usage. If there is not already a window, a window air conditioner will leave a considerable hole in your wall that could look inviting to a determined thief.

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