How much does a mini-split for a garage cost?

What size mini split system do I need for my garage?

Are you looking to install a mini-split for your garage but do not know the cost? Mini-splits are great because they allow you to change the temperature of an individual room. You can keep your garage significantly warmer than your house in the summer, driving your energy bill down. 

Coastal Home Services provides a wide range of heating and cooling options at affordable prices. Before purchasing a mini-split, know the costs and determine whether an investment in this type of heat pump is right for you. Although mini-splits have their advantages, some people still opt to install HVAC units in their garage. Please give us a call, and a member of our team of NATE certified HVAC technicians will be happy to help you navigate any questions. 


What is the best way to air condition a garage?

Do you spend a lot of time in your garage? Maybe you have a dog that spends most of his time in the garage. These factors might incline you to purchase a mini-split air conditioner for your garage. These systems remain popular in areas that do not come with built-in ducts, such as bonus rooms and garages. Maybe you store food in your garage or have a flat top grill used for cooking. All these scenarios make a mini-split appealing if not essential. Mini-splits use less energy and are less noisy than traditional HVAC units. If you are using your garage for anything more than parking your car, we recommend starting a mini-split for heating and cooling solutions. 


How much does a mini-split cost for a garage?

Mini-splits range in price depending on how powerful of a system you purchase. The average price range from cooling your garage with a mini-split is between $1,000 to $4,000. Luxurious brands and complex installations will also cost more. Fortunately, prices do not range too high for garage mini-splits because it only requires one unit. Installing multiple mini-split units into different rooms in the home significantly increases costs, but it remains cheaper over time than an HVAC unit. 


Mini-split vs. HVAC unit prices

Although HVAC units cost less initially, mini-splits are a better investment because they save money on the electricity bill. Central air conditioning units will need to be replaced after 12 to 15 years, but a mini-split will last over 20 years. They also are less noisy and do not require duct cleaning. For these reasons and more, many people choose to invest in their homes by installing multiple mini-split units throughout their house. It is best to weigh out your options before making a rash decision. You can also choose to install mini-split units over time to replace your old central heating and cooling system.
