I recently figured out that our backyard shed isn’t insulated.
For a long time I would just freeze to death anytime I wanted to work on projects.
I figured I needed to add a oil furnace to the space in order to work all year long. Thankfully I looked into the walls plus ceiling before purchasing our heater. I noticed the lack of insulation plus now our shed is getting a facelift. I replaced the windows for modern ones that fit narrow in the frames. I tore down the walls to add insulation in them plus the ceiling. Now that our space is totally airtight, it is not that cold anymore. Am I totally comfortable? Not really! Before our insulation project I was thinking of adding a ductless mini split. I figured I needed a powerful oil furnace to keep myself and others hot plus most likely would want A/C in the summer. Now that the shed isn’t too bad on temperature control, I think a straight-forward space oil furnace will do the trick. I think one small, electric oil furnace plus perhaps a window a/c in the Summer will be fantastic enough. If I go a year plus I am not totally ecstatic with the level of heating plus A/C, after that I will call a Heating as well as A/C business plus get ductless replacement. I really hope it doesn’t come to that though. I just replaced our walls, sanded plus painted over them. The mini split replacement would require a hole being drilled right in our taxing work. It would be kind of ugly having a giant machine on the wall too.
