I've always wanted to put an AC unit in my garage but so far haven't done it.
The garage is finished inside with brick on the outside and a room over it.
I now have to replace the side door, so I've been considering my options:
1. Put an AC unit in the wall. Which I think might be the best
solution, but I'd
have to figure out a way to get the bricks out, put in the
then cut the drywall. Hopefully I can to this without having to
cut any of the
2. My current door is a wooden door that swings in. I'm thinking
it with a steel door that swings out. The reason, is that I am
cutting a hole in the door, and mounting a window unit in the
door. With the
door swinging out, I would'nt have to worry about the unit
blocking the door
way when I'm trying to get in or out of the garage. I could
make some iron
straps to help hold it to/in the door.
3. The other option is to try and get a portable AC unit. Then I
could cut a hole
in the door for the exhaust vent. I could make up some
channels to allow me
to put a cover over the hole when I'm not using the portable AC unit.
I'm wondering if anyone has used any of these methods and how it worked?
Also any pros or cons?
