Determining if your garage can accommodate a heating and cooling system

Garages can be used for more than just parking your vehicles… They can be used as a workshop, extra storage, plus more.

Nonetheless, when you’re working out there more often, it should be a cozy temperature! Most garages lack the HVAC duct needed for usual heating plus cooling systems, and adding HVAC duct is an option, however it’s not the most cost-effective.

The best way to heat your garage is with a ductless comfort system, such as a mini-split program or a garage heater. A mini-split is similar to a heat pump in that it transfers heat rather than producing it. As a result, it’s a highly efficient heating plus cooling program for spaces separate from HVAC ducts. A small hole in the wall is usually used to affix these electric systems to the outdoor unit, garage furnaces are different from section heaters. The all-in-one heating program is installed on the ceiling or higher corners of a wall; then depending on the model, these furnaces can run on electricity, gas, or propane… If you live in colder weather conditions plus do a lot of dirty, dirty work, they’re good for you. Garage furnaces are heavy-duty plus designed to withstand dirt. They are the most affordable style. Depending on the fuel type, the cost is usually about half that of a mini-split. As with an oil furnace, garage furnaces use fuel to generate heat. A mini-split a/c is closer to a heat pump, which transfers warmth; however because of this, mini-splits are more energy-efficient. A garage oil furnace only provides heat. A ductless mini-split provides both heating plus cooling. Garage furnaces are usually mounted on the ceiling, so they take up extravagant overhead storage space. Mini-split systems are officially installed higher up on a wall plus don’t take up much space.
