How to Cool a Garage Converted to a Family Room
When you need more space in your home for people, not cars, a garage conversion offers you a cost-effective way to create a fun hangout spot for your family. Making sure that the new room keeps everyone cool in hot weather is the key to your family’s enjoyment. When you live in the subtropical climate of Tallahassee, Florida, an unconditioned space just isn’t an option. Selecting the right air conditioner can help turn a converted garage into your family’s favorite gathering place.
What Are My AC Choices?
Depending on the size and configuration of your current central AC system, you may be able to extend existing ductwork into your new family room. If your cooling equipment is outdated, underperforming or needs frequent repairs, upgrading to a new whole-home system may be the best option. If you’re searching for an air conditioner that will cool your new space independently, however, Mitsubishi Electric ductless air conditioning offers multiple advantages over traditional window units.
The Ductless Solution
Mitsubishi Electric ductless air conditioning products work much like conventional split AC systems, minus the ductwork. Conditioned air is delivered directly into your converted garage through a trim air handling unit. A conduit line accessed through a small hole cut behind the air handler connects the blower to an outdoor unit. Non-invasive installation is just one of the reasons that the Environmental Protection Agency recommends ductless systems for room additions and remodels. Additional benefits include:
- Compact size
- Design flexibility
- Energy-saving performance
- Quiet operation
- Remote-control convenience
- Security against intruders
