There was more than one way to get heating in my garage.

Even though the garage is attached to our home, there isn’t any HVAC in there.

We have an opening from the garage into the basement, that is concerning in several ways.

If carbon monoxide built up from the car, it would seep into the basement where my kids play. I also had a concern about someone coming through the garage and getting into my house. My husband putting a locking door between the garage and the basement, but now the garage was even colder. My husband had a workshop in there, and I was looking for the perfect Christmas present for him. I wanted to have HVAC installed in the garage. I talked to the HVAC technician about having ductwork installed and have the current central HVAC heat and cool the garage. He said the furnace was on the other side of the basement, and it would be too far to extend the ductwork, but he gave me another choice. He said they made ductless HVAC systems that would be perfect for that space. There would be heating and air conditioning, and he could even put a compact unit in the bathroom/washroom that was in the garage. The price was a bit more than I was thinking of spending for a Christmas present, but our anniversary and his birthday were in that same week. The ductless HVAC system would suffice for all three. I didn’t want to wait until it was too cold for him to work out there, so I had the ductless HVAC installed two weeks later. My husband was elated and bought me a diamond tennis bracelet for my Halloween birthday.
