Last summer, both of us started using the garage as a second entertainment room. We bought a large television, a small cocktail bar, and a couple of really comfortable chairs to put out there, mainly because my spouse and I smoke and it’s much easier lounging in there than going outside. Unfortunately, the first time both of us tried to relax, both of us realized that it would be impossible to be out there without an air conditioning unit! My spouse and I talked to the local heating and air conditioning company, however they said it was impossible to duct the central air conditioning component to our garage… Our air conditioning component was only strong enough to cool our home—adding the garage would be a damaging burden to the system. The heating and air conditioning company suggested purchasing a portable air conditioning component for our outdoor space. My spouse and I did not need the expensive heating and air conditioning company for that. We drove to the hardware store ourselves and found a few odd models to choose from. My spouse found the same air conditioning components online, many for $50 cheaper or more. We decided to buy a portable air conditioning unit, because the garage lacked any windows for a window unit. The portable air conditioning component worked undoubtedly well, and both of us haven’t had any complications with sizzling air making us uncomfortable again. As long as both of us keep the back door closed, the portable air conditioning component provides plenty of amazing cool comfort to the room. My spouse and I are so glad that both of us decided to turn the garage into a second entertainment room, it adds a second lounging area in the house that can even double as an outdoor poker or fitness room. As soon as both of us can afford to remodel the garage, we’re going to add a small bathroom in the room too. Then both of us can actually rent the section if both of us need extra income at some point down the road.
