Get Heating For Your Garage

If you use your garage to park your cars, keep your tools, and occasionally tinker around, then you might not even care that the garage doesn't have heating. However, if you are like a lot of other people who like to use their garage for everything from their regular workshop to their visiting quarters or game area, then you will want to make sure you have heating during those colder months. In this case, there are different things you can do to get heating in the garage and you can learn about some of them here. In most cases, a garage doesn't come heated; this is something you will have to have done yourself if you want it. 

Have the central HVAC unit routed

If you currently have a central HVAC system in your home and the garage is attached to the home, then you might want to have more ductwork installed that will direct some of that heat into the garage. If you do decide to go this route, then you can expect the garage to be kept at the same nice temperature that you have the rest of your home at.

Have a ductless mini-split unit installed

You can go with a ductless mini-split heating and air conditioning unit for the garage. This is a good idea for many people because it gives you heating and air conditioning together out of one unit that can be installed for the garage. You will even be able to set the thermostat from your phone, so you can turn the heat on for just the garage when you know you are going to want to spend time in there when you get home.

Window units

You may see plenty of garages with window heating and air conditioning units installed in the windows. While these units can heat and cool small spaces, you may find they aren't nearly as capable and efficient as the two types of systems listed above. Window units are also loud and they can provide small pests an easy entryway into the garage, especially when the unit is turned off.


Now that you have more information on some of the different ways that you can go about having heating and also air conditioning installed into your garage, you will want to give a call to a professional HVAC installer who can help you make other important decisions regarding your choice and also take care of the installation process for you.
