For far too long, I’ve just sort of pretended that the garage just really wasn’t even there.
This was some sort of transference because I was partly responsible for letting it get to the condition it was in.
When we moved here, my wife and I were so excited to have a house with excellent residential HVAC and a two car garage. We had been living in apartments up until that point. So you can imagine how excited we were to be living in our own place. I even put a workbench out in that garage so I could slip out of the air conditioning the kind of fool around when our kids were little and I needed a break. The garage also served as the secret spot when my wife needed a moment would go out to sneak a cigarette. The older the kids got, the more the garage got trashed and became a junkyard. This was distressing to me to the point where I just had to put it out of my mind. I would try to clean out the garage but it would last a few days before it was wrecked again. But once we all got locked down inside the central air conditioning of the house, I knew I was going to need some garage time. But I also knew that I would need more than just a clean organized garage. We were rolling into summer so I called the HVAC company to see what they could do to about some residential HVAC in the garage. The answer was of course, a ductless heat pump. The HVAC technician had that thing installed in an afternoon. Wow, what a difference having that ductless heat pump and some quality heating and air has made for that space. I love it out there now.
