We have been thinking about turning our more than one car garage into a beach house gym for the past couple of years.
It’s one of those things that has been in the back of our minds for a while, however all of us just haven’t ever gotten around to doing it until now, and we haven’t had the time nor the currency up until this year and so it seems like it’s finally the right time to start working on it.
The complication that we’re having is the fact that the more than one car garage was never absolutely set up to be a living spaceâ€¦ Up until now, all of us have absolutely had no reason to need HVAC ducts or heating and cooling out there; After all, the only thing that’s usually in the garage are our bikes, the grassmower, and our deep freezer. Those things don’t need to have heating and a/c, that’s for sure. But now, if all of us are going to be working out in that area, all of us are going to have to do something about the lack of heating and cooling out there. We spoke to an HVAC supplier about it once and he told us that he wouldn’t absolutely suggest running HVAC duct from the beach house to the garage! He said that if all of us tried to use the same HVAC proposal that all of us have currently, it might be too much of a load on the unit and the temperature in the rest of the beach house would suffer. Instead, he proposed something called a ductless mini split a/c proposal that would be able to handle both the heating and the cooling in the garage.
