Protect Your Vintage Cars With Air Conditioning
As an antique car enthusiast, you perform regular maintenance on your collection to maintain their value and preserve their vintage appeal. You wash and wax them, change the oil, and check the engine.
These treasured vehicles are very much a part of your life and taking care of them is something you truly enjoy!
Climate Control Protects Your Vintage Car
Another factor important to maintaining your investment is climate control. Our Florida summers are brutal and most garages aren’t air conditioned.
On an average Southwest Florida summer day, that 100 degree outside temperature can easily equate to 120 degrees or more in your unconditioned garage.
The issue here is heat and humidity gets trapped in your unconditioned garage like an oven. Humidity can cause damage to the mechanical and technological elements of your car.
In extreme cases, drying and cracking of the car’s dashboard, upholstery, exterior paint, and damage to other elements can occur.
Controlling the heat and humidity can also prevent the formation of rust, mold, and mildew.
Add Air Conditioning For Protection
There are various opinions on whether or not you need air conditioning to protect your classic cars. But one thing is for sure… adding AC to your garage will give you peace of mind your vintage car collection is safe from the elements, and you are doing everything you can to protect your investment.
If you want to ensure your car continues to get the same TLC you’ve provided for it, then adding air conditioning may be right for you.
OK, let’s say you’re ready to add AC to your garage.
Do you extend your existing duct system to the garage? We recommend No. There are many issues with this, including the expense, lack of efficiency and the sizing of your current system. Your home’s AC may not be able to handle the additional load.
Ductless Mini Split Protects Vintage Cars
A Ductless Mini Split doesn’t need full-sized air ducts to work.
Unlike a conventional central AC system, a ductless mini split system uses an individual air handler and one outdoor condenser unit, making it an efficient choice for cooling an individual space, like your garage.
The cool air then circulates through these units minimizing temperature swings and controlling humidity.
With a mini split in your garage, showing off your car collection to your neighbors is now cool and comfy – a piece of cake!
On a side note, mini splits can cool up to eight rooms with just one outdoor condenser.
Vintage Car Protection Provides Peace Of Mind
While most cars depreciate as they age, a classic or collector car is an investment and appreciates with time. The bottom line is with a mini split, you’ll sleep better knowing your treasured car collection is cool and safe in your air-conditioned garage.
The potential damage will no longer be a worry and you can rest assured knowing your car collection is as cool and comfortable as you during the brutal summer heat of Southwest Florida.
