Ductless Systems Provide a Great Way to Air Condition a Garage

If you’re retrofitting your garage into usable living space, or searching for a practical way to protect stored household items from the Mobile heat and humidity, discover how ductless systems air condition a garage and offer a sensible energy-efficient solution.


Ductless Systems Air Condition a Garage and More

Ductless mini split air conditioners are compact workhorses that easily outperform wall A/C units for efficiency and cooling capacity without the security risk and eyesore for accommodating a large hole, nor the expense and extra workload placed on a central system for extending ducts.

Ductless systems air condition a garage and/or a converted bedroom above the garage easily, and you can also enjoy a zoning system for personalized temperature settings in each area. For instance, if you don’t need cooling in the retrofitted rooms overnight or at other times, simply turn off the ductless unit to save energy while the central system cools other spaces in the home.

There are three primary components to ductless cooling systems, and this is how they work:

  • Outside unit: The compressor/condenser components are housed at the outside unit. The outside unit is compact and versatile, providing multiple installation options for best aesthetics and convenience. Scroll compressors provide efficient and powerful cooling no matter how hot and humid it may get.
  • Conduit: A small hole in the outer wall of the home is all that’s needed to extend a thin conduit to each indoor air handler. The conduit houses the high-efficiency refrigerant, power source and condensate drainage line. It may extend well over 100 feet, depending on the chosen model, to accommodate practically any installation.
  • Air handler: The air handlers offer multiple installation options. You may choose to mount the sleek air handler high on a wall, flush in a drop ceiling or from the ceiling. Floor mounting at the baseboard is another option for discreet installation.

Ductless systems air condition a garage, retrofitted rooms and room additions for a convenient and energy-efficient cooling solution.
