Fans for cooling and propane heaters in the winter months. I would install the heater in my shop.

My shop is in the basement so I have it heat and air-conditioned.
If i was to get the SHARP 9000 I would install it in the garage because I have some larger equipment like panel saw and would like a larger CNC table

My workshop is so minuscule that in inclement weather, if a portable fan or space heater is insufficient, I must forgo the current project in favor of planing the next.

How do you keep your workshop area cool in the summer and warm in the winter?

Currently using a 12,000 BTU 22 SEER Gree mini-split for our attached and well insulated two-car garage in northwest Louisiana - hot, humid in the summer and colder than you would think in the winter.

Where will you use the Sharp Mini Split if you win?

I need a smaller shop out back for my guitar building and the Sharp mini-split would be perfect for that.

In the winter I take my iPad with me in the garage , then go to this site and let the sarcasm about my non insulated shop warm it up . Only helps a few degrees though lol

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

My shop in neither heated or cooled. I use window fans in the summer and a portable heater to preheat my shop in the winter.

I would use the Sharp Mini Split in my work shop to extend my "wookable day's".

Default A needed expansion

Since my shop is in my basement, it is conditioned by my home furnace/air. My shop is only 13'x19', and it would be nice to expand into my un-heated garage to gain shop space. I have not done so due to not being able to control the humidity to prevent rust. The heat pump sounds like a great solution for year around use and could be quite economical to run. I would use this in my garage.

My shop/garage has no adequate climate control. It is heated in the summer and cooled in the winter largely by the local temperatures. Temperature extremes are moderated by a space heater in the winter and a south breeze in the summer. A mini split system would allow comfortable year around shop usage.
