Air Conditioner Options for Your Garage Conversion

So you’re considering converting your garage into a relaxing space as an addition to your house? More and more people are doing so as it’s not only a fun and exciting project, but can add a great amount of character to your home. Of course a project like this requires a good deal of preparation. Though we can’t turn you into the consummate handyman, we can help you prepare to complete the conversion by making sure you know about all of your garage air conditioner options. 

Besides the fun stuff for the game room or man cave you might be building, you need to think about an air conditioner as one of your top priorities. Without it, your new room figures to be a lot less fun to utilize during hot days and nights. There are a few options to consider 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 will only work if the garage and the home are connected and have a conveniently accessible duct that can be connected to your garage. This is obviously a job for someone with the proper know-how, so consult with a specialist from Robinson Service Experts to find out if this is a viable option for you. 
  2. Install a ductless air conditioner, also known as a mini-split system. This type of air conditioner works on its own condenser situated right outside the garage. The indoor AC mounts to the wall near the ceiling. A mini-split system is also a special kind 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. 
  3. Purchase a window air conditioner. If connecting an existing duct is not a choice and the space isn’t very large, this could be a a great fit. 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 a built-in window, a window air conditioner will leave a large hole in your wall that could look inviting to a determined thief. 

If you’re ready to move forward on your garage conversion project, make sure your air conditioner needs are properly met. After all, an extension of your house should feel just as comfortable as every other room. Give the pros at Robinson Service Experts a call at 847-306-8730 or schedule an appointment online today.
