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 heating system to the space in order to work all year long. Thankfully I looked into the walls and ceiling before purchasing our heater. I noticed the lack of insulation and now our shed is getting a facelift. I replaced the windows for up-to-date 1s that fit slim in the frames. I tore down the walls to add insulation in them and the ceiling. Now that our space is totally airtight, it is not that freezing 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 heating plan to keep myself and others hot and most likely would want AC in the summer. Now that the shed isn’t too awful on temperature control, I assume a easy space heating system will do the trick. I assume 1 small, electric heating system and perhaps a window a/c in the summer time will be fantastic enough. If I go a year and I am not totally ecstatic with the level of heating and air conditioner, after that both of us will call a Heating plus Air Conditioning company and get ductless upgrade. I very hope it doesn’t come to that though. I just replaced our walls, sanded and painted over them. The mini chop upgrade would require a hole being drilled right in our strenuous work. It would be kind of ugly having a big unit on the wall too.
