I am going to need to get heating and A/C installed in our outdoor shed.
When I first bought our place I figured the shed was nice to workout in! So there was plywood on one wall.
Who cares if there is no insulation? So the windows were old, no big deal. Well in the winter time it was just awful with how cold it was. I eventually ripped down the walls and ceiling to add insulation. I upgraded the windows with brand new. I figured if the shed was airtight I could get away with no heating and A/C, nope, I was still cold. I then tried to get by with a small area heater. In order to workout in the winter time I needed to wear long pants, a jacket and gloves with the area furnace on. If I thought to preheat an hour before my workout, I could eventually take off gloves and jacket. It wasn’t exactly warm in there though. Once summer time hit I knew that window A/C wouldn’t do the trick. I was tired of never being the right temperature. I finally just bit the bullet and called our local heating and A/C business. I told them to install a ductless mini split and charge what they wanted, however the initial cost was pretty darn high. The component is super extravagant, the heating and A/C install rate wasn’t. I have thought about it this way too. If I had to spend money to workout in a temperature controlled area everyday, how much would I pay? I thought I would be willing to spend around 10-15 a day, which would spend money for the component in a little over a year. So that helps when I think about it that way.
