I am far, far from fancy.
In fact, I still wear hoodies and shirts that I loved more than a decade ago.
No, I’m not hip, trendy or in any way fancy. So, it’s sort of hard to believe that I have a garage with air conditioning. I can hardly believe it myself. Garages with HVAC are the sort of things you see on TV or on car shows. They aren’t for suburban dads who use the garage as a small escape from everything. That’s really what the garage has always been for me. I take after my dad in that respect. My dad wasn’t much of a sit in the recliner in the air conditioning sort of man. He was always tinkering with something at his work bench. He had a work bench in the garage and one in the basement. The one in the garage was the one he used almost all year and for most projects. The work bench in the basement was next to the boiler and he could stay warm in the winter. I wonder what he’d say about my set up. It was much like his really for years. But I finally got tired of sweating it out when the summer heat hits. We live in a region where the winter is not the problem. The summer heat is what you have to look out for. So the addition of the ductless heat pump in the garage has been wonderful. I can enjoy plenty of HVAC cooling all summer out there and still have my peace and quiet. Although, I do get some projects done at my workbench. But really, I’m just soaking up all the quality heating and air out there now.
