I had always wanted a sort of game room or something.
- But my kids just weren’t interested at all in ping pong, pool or air hockey.
Of course, that didn’t mean that they didn’t spend endless hours playing games. My kids often preferred staying inside the heating and cooling of home to play games online than go outside and doing something fun. So my plans for that gameroom sort of fizzled. Once the kids hit highschool and junior high, it became clear that I would be needing a space of my own to get some peace and quiet. That’s when I started thinking about the gameroom idea again. But this time, I decided that I’d make it more of a Dad room. With the help of a couple of buddies, we erected some interior walls in the basement. From there, we added a couch a couple of TV’s and a couple of old recliners. It was at least a start and served its purpose. However, as time went by, I realized that my new space needed more in the way of good heating and cooling. Where we live we get some rough winter weather and the summer is plenty hot requiring months of air conditioning. My new space was set up in the basement where there was only one HVAC air vent. So I called the HVAC company and they installed a ductless heat pump in my game room. I’m now calling it a game room because I added some old school arcade games as well as a pool table. The ductless heat pump provides quality heating and air in my new game room.
