Nice system. My shop is well insulated so it stays fairly cool most of the day in the summer and I have a radiant tube heater for winter so that would be a tough question as to whether I would put it in the shop or my house.

Default Sure Can Use This

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

I work out of an uninsulated Florida garage. Heating is never a real issue, but cooling is! Generally, it's open doors and a big noisy fan for the cooling. Oh, and lots of water to drink.

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

Unlike somebody, here, I'd be insulating the garage.

What is really impressive is the 22 SER rating.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Nothing ever gets built on schedule or within budget.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

In SW Missouri during the summer it gets pretty warm and I use fans and the exit method. It gets to warm I exit the shop. In winter I have a couple of electric heaters that keep it fairly warm. If it gets to cold I use the winter exit method. I go in the house. I would definitely install the unit in the shop.

In the summer, the garage is actually pretty cool in the morning as long as I don't open the bay doors too often. After 1300, it starts to get pretty hot. When that point is reached, both bay doors open and the circulating fan is run. At sundown, the doors have to be closed so the mosquitoes don't begin feasting on me, so a low speed fan is used.

In the winter, I have a propane heater that I use to get the shop up to temperature, then I shut it off and it's usually not that bad as long as I don't go in and out of the big doors.

I would love the mini split system to use for my wife's sitting/sewing/workout room that we added on a while back. The heating and cooling ducts for that room hang inside of my workshop, and lower the effective ceiling height a foot. Plus, it is hard to balance that room with the rest of the house, so she usually supplements with a space heater in the winter time. The ability to have that room on it's own thermostat will give me back my overhead clearance and probably put a dent on the power bill.

I have a window air conditioner, and a 220 volt electric heater....

Well....in the summer i open both ends of the shop and turn on the fans, in the winter.....pretty much the same thing..lol...on cooler days I might light a propane heater.

This would be perfect in the office......gets a little toasty in there.

I have a split system in my shop for heating and cooling.

I would use this system in my home office.

My shop is heated by the sun during the spring, summer and fall months. In the winter I have a propane heater but it doesn't do much.

If I were to win I would probably use it in my 3 Seasons room which I try to use year around.
