Installing A Ductless HVAC System Into A Mauldin, SC Garage

A Ductless HVAC System Provides Perfect Comfort in A Mauldin, SC Garage

One of the calls we get more and more of is to add HVAC to a home addition, or a garage that people want to use all year round. In this case, the homeowners in Mauldin, SC had a garage that they wanted to use more than just in the spring and fall. They wanted to convert it into a finished living space. 

In this case, their HVAC system in the home was fine, but there wasn’t a way to run more ductwork to the garage. Instead, a solution that works independently of their whole home HVAC was the best choice. A ductless mini split is perfect for these kind of situations. 

Problem: Our homeowners wanted to be able to use their garage all summer and all winter.

Solution: A single-zone ductless mini split was perfect for this situation and will provide them with impeccable comfort all year long.

Why A Ductless Mini Split Is Perfect For An Addition

Ductless mini splits have a number of advantages over other heating and cooling solutions. It’s no surprise that we are seeing more people in Greenville and the surrounding areas choosing these particular types of heat pump systems for their homes. 

Ductless Mini Splits Can Heat And Cool  

For one thing, ductless mini splits have the ability to both heat and cool a space. Lots of other solutions can only heat OR cool. Ductless can be used as an air conditioner in the summer, and as a heating system in the winter. Instead of using a window AC unit, which is cumbersome, and would have taken the minimal window space, this was a much better option. 

Ductless Mini Splits Are Quiet

Unlike a furnace that makes a big boom when it kicks on, or a window AC that rumbles the entire time it’s on, ductless mini splits are quiet. Ductless mini splits are around 32 db, compared to window units which range between about 50-70 db. 

I know that when I used to use window units, it would always mean having to turn the TV up, or move to the quieter part of the room to talk on the phone. For a space like a livable garage, a noisy unit would make the space much less comfortable. 

Ductless Mini Splits Are Energy Efficient 

Another great benefit of ductless mini splits is that they are energy efficient. These systems are heat pumps that run on electricity all year round. Instead of creating heat in the winter through combustion like a furnace that burns oil or gas, these systems use the minimal amount of heat in the air, and use that to treat the space. In the summer, the process is reversed to cool the air. 

Ductless Mini Splits Require No Ductwork

This is pretty self explanatory, but ductless mini splits don’t need any ductwork to operate. Instead we run a small bit of tubing up the outside wall, from the condenser to the head or cassette inside. 

Ductwork requires room in the walls, and can be expensive to install. For a space like a garage, ductwork would be almost impossible. A single zone ductless mini split was almost made just for this kind of project. 

The Best Heating And Cooling Solution For An Addition

For additions and garages, newly renovated spaces, ductless mini splits are a perfect solution. For all the reasons listed above, this is one of the best ways to heat and cool the space permanently. You don’t have to remove the ductless unit season to season. This system takes care of you all year round. 

You save energy, don’t need to install any new ductwork, and can keep the space comfortable all year long. These systems are also very environmentally friendly. Most local utility companies offer rebates, and the government even offers tax credits on heat pumps based on how energy efficient they are.
