I built a heated 'laundry closet' in a garage ,many years ago----

Older gal who was having a hard time using the basement stairs----she's 90 something now and we never had an issue with freezing----

If you wish to air condition the space, using a small room air conditioner might be cheaper than ducting into the house unit.

No offense but why on earth would you need this? I have a garage washer/dryer at my beach house and you scurry in to load the washer (<5 minutes). Return to put laundry in dryer (<5 minutes) and return to take laundry back in the house. Fold and hang the laundry in the house. I usually do it in the bedroom and the bed makes a terrific work surface. Air conditioning the laundry room makes the washer/dryer comfortable. Why would you need that?

Arlo,

I welcome all feedback, that's why I post here.

I never checked my garage temps but when it was 100 here this summer it was unbearable in my garage. The heat bothers her so I was just thinking for the cost involved it might be worth the comfort?

I have a laundry room in the house but its so small I fold clothes in the bedroom also.

The way to make a house into a home is to add little touches that make the place work for you---If that means air conditioning the laundry==then, if you can--by all means do it.

I am a firm believer in adding the things to your home that make your life easier and more enjoyable.
