had a mini split 24000 btu ac installed

we decided the bus "hangar" needed a/c because the exhaust fan drawing in 90 plus degree air, just made it to hot and dusty. so i had a samsung 24,000 btu a/c heatpump unit installed.


yesterday when they started, it was 90 in the hangar, and the front garage door was open, humidity was off the charts sticky 92 F with heat index at 102
once they had it running and testing out the temps started dropping fast to 80 with the garage door open, a few hours later with the room empty and all doors closed it got down to 77, and by 7 am this morning it was at 69F, so i opened up the 12foor wide 13 foot high door and brought the bus back in, temps shot up to 79 from the engine exhaust and heat, its down now after 3 hrs to 75-77, temps are fluctuating a bit and i am playing with the ceiling fans to see which ones or what direction has the best effect on overall temps

Just having a bit of un with you. When I transfer pictures from my phone to my "real" computer": I often have to manipulate them with an image editing program. I then save the results with the proper end point up, and voila!

Thats for the post Powerboatr, I have a mini split on my Dream Garage as well. Tell us more about the size of your Hanger? L x W x H. Looks like its insulated some as well? Is the building in full sun? Half sun etc.

Thanks.

Bob, pics kill me, they show up correct on the laptop, but then do the angle of the dangle on line . i need a disclaimer to hold screen at 90 angle for correct orientation







as far as the hangar, 26 x46ish by 14 at low point. r26 in ceiling with a 6" air space, ( getting that blown in by fall), walls are a hybrid foil closed cell foam material rated at r19, and yes its pretty darn close. doors are special built R19 rated doors with heavy air seals n all the seams and close points,

https://www.insulation4less.com/default.aspx

it stays pretty cool once its cooled down, but that ISC was HOT when i pulled her in this morning. i had to guide her myself up until the last few feet so i had a few adjustments in and out to get her on the spot, which led to big door being open longer than normal i have temp set at 75, and its reading 76 now so it should start throttling back on a/c .


ac is a samsung 24,000 btu with boost up to 27,500 is btu. .
its very compact but has lots of air flow and velocity. i still have to re-plumb the drain out side to flow to the water collection tank we use for the plants , ac guys could not do it becasue of some plumbing code, so they left me an easy fix when they ran the drain it was only 3k all in and installed. same folks that put one in the "big" house a few years ago, local guy.

I would love to have that garage but I don't have the room in the city where I live.

Think "PowerBall Winner", and you could buy an entire City Block!
You could put it right next to the Helipad, and the go-kart track!

A friend of my wife did hit a big lotto a few years ago. He wasted the money and his wife divorced him. He had millions and many new friends came out of the wood work to help him spend it. Of course the wife got her fair share of the money.

It would be nice to have that ability and means.

Paul

Consider this flooring https://armorpoxy.com/products/5-5-m...ern-3-95sq-ft/

The tile was cheaper than the prep on the floor for the stain(and then the stain cost)
