My new house has a huge basement, and honestly I want to make wonderful use of the area. There are various things that I could do with the room, I’m thinking of turning it into an office, a gym, or even a gaming room! As of right now, I’m leaning towards turning it into a workout space because I don’t want to leave the house every time I feel like getting some exercise in. The only predicament is that the cooling system doesn’t come to the basement so I’ll have to find some type of A/C unit that I can have installed down there so that the space is more comfortable to be in. I had been considering the use of a portable cooling system but then a friend of mine recently mentioned that maybe I should try out a ductless mini-split cooling system. I saw on television that a mini-split cooling systems can be mounted onto a wall so that they don’t take up too much floor space. What’s even better about them is that they are supposed to be nearly silent! That’s a big reward for me because I would rather not have to listen to the sound of an cooling system while attempting to do my workout. I’ve researched the mini-split cooling systems online and the only downfall is that one of these systems would be considerably more pricey than a portable cooling system, however I feel that I would be paying for better quality as well as extremely more reliability. I’m going to be doing a lot more research before I settle on anything for sure, there’s no doubt though that I’ll need some type of cooling system down in the basement. I hope that I’m able to pick the right model because I want to get wonderful use out of all the space in my home.
