About 10 years ago, my wife and I decided to turn the attached garage into a den.
At that time, we did not think about the fact that the heat and the AC did not run to that part of the house. Now we are running into temperature problems during the winter and the summer. It’s absolutely clear that the planet is getting warmer and warmer every year. 10 years ago, the average summer temperature was around 93 degrees. Now the average summer temperature is closer to 96 degrees. Three degrees over 10 years is a huge jump. In another 20 years, the average summer temperatures are going to be over 100 degrees. It’s far too hot during the summer months to spend time in the den, but my wife and I recently decided to install a ductless AC unit. The ductless AC unit will help the indoor air quality a great deal. We rarely use the den at all during the summer, but it is a large part of our home. We decided to install the ductless AC unit after my daughter wanted us to watch our grandson every day when she was at work. The den was the best part of the house for a playroom, so we decided to have the ductless AC unit installed at that time. It was a bit expensive, but the results are amazing. The purchase of the new AC unit has doubled the amount of comfortable living space in our home this summer. The den is the perfect place for the kids to spend all day and now it is cozy and cool too.
