Hello all. I am a homeowner who just finished my basement, which is around 450 sqft. The basement has 2 ceiling fans. All electrical outlets are 110 V. The basement is mostly a play room for my young children.
I need to understand what are my options to solve the heating and cooling problem. I live in the Atlanta, GA metro area.
I need to be able to heat the room in the winter and cool it in the summer. I also would like to be able to humidify during winter.
I understand I have choices:
- window unit
- through-the-wall unit
I could also use a radiant heat solution for the winter and use the ceiling fans for the summer. For the winter, I would need a separate, portable humidifier, which I don't like too much due to the maintenance required.
I don't think my HOA will let me install window or through-the-wall. I am still waiting for them to get back to me on this.
I am trying to stay away from central HVAC due to the costs.
Any insight on this will be greatly appreciated!
