I prefer to shop for handmade and one of a kind items. I rarely go to shopping centers or chain stores to purchase clothes, furniture or accessories. I bought a charming older home last year that already had major restoration task completed. The roof was less than 2 years old, modern hardwood floors had been installed that same year as well as a complete entryway and bathroom remodel. The garage was closed in and was now additional indoor space. I was walking into a sound investment… Of course, I wanted to add my own personal touch with some cosmetic changes. I planned to use the garage as an art studio. However, the previous owners had not installed a heating and cooling system in this area. My co-worker owns his own heating, ventilation and A/C corporation and came over to supply me with some options. His recommendation based on cost, time and effectiveness was a ductless heating and air conditioning system. He explained that the ductless A/Cs don’t need the ductwork or much of the electrical layouts that other forms of air conditioning require. Also, you have less noise as well because the compressor is installed outside. The need for an internal evaporator component with copper tubing to pump refrigerant into the blowers is even eliminated with the ductless system… Traditional air conditioning units really require a lot more work to install! The walls would need to be opened up to install the ductwork inside. The ductless system only needs to be mounted on the wall or hung from the ceiling. With the installation of the ductless heating and cooling system, my art studio will be the perfect temperature all year long.
