I spent much of the Winter out in my garage.
After finally dealing with that space, I’ve found that I love puttering around out there.
The Spring is in full bloom down here and I’m already hearing the heat pumps kick on in the neighborhood. Air conditioning is already on the menu. Normally, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the garage once the heat gets going. Like most garages, it gets unholy hot out there. There wasn’t any ductwork extended to the garage. So the garage was not ever part of the central air conditioning of our home. But that doesn’t mean that I’m not enjoy air conditioning each and every day once it gets hot. Last year’s Spring cleaning was taken to another level. My wife and I always give the house a deep cleaning early in the Spring each year. We finish that off with having the HVAC professionals come out to do the ductwork cleaning and ductwork resealing. That’s always the capper to our deep cleaning. Well last year, I decided to take on bringing some order and cleanliness to the garage after years of neglect. I happened to be knee deep in that process when the HVAC technicians came to do the ductwork cleaning. That’s when they suggested that I have a ductless mini split installed so I could use my new garage space all Summer. What an amazing suggestion that turned out to be. I had a ductless heat pump installed just two weeks later and have never looked back. Now if anybody wants to find dad, he’s in the garage enjoying the quality heating and air from the ductless mini split.
