If you have one, then you know how that little space keeps you at peace, sane, and balanced; a place of your own where you can sneak in anytime, and the wife and kids can’t just barge in; a place where the fridge is full of beer and the game is always on. That’s right, a man cave. How cool does that sound? Basically, a little sanctuary where all of your fave stuff is in their right place—probably some of your old mementos in the wall, big HD TV for your dose of viewing entertainment (hello Super Bowl Sunday), a kegerator or a dry bar, a handy little kitchen, a comfy couch, some of your computer stuff and video games, and maybe even a comfortable bed so you’d not have to trudge back upstairs or downstairs when you feel like dosing off.
As is often said, men will be men, and whether Science or your wife backs you up on this or not, you know that you have some Neanderthal streak hidden deep inside that’s always aching to come out. And when work, family obligations, and some crazy adult chores start to stress you out, it’s just part of your DNA to look for a place where you can retreat, reflect, recharge, relax, and scrape all of the worries or put them aside even for a while. And as cool as it has always been, a man cave can be real handy. Big-time handy!
Well, a man cave is actually not a new concept, and if you don’t have one yet but looking to set it up, be mindful of the fact that not all attempts turned out alright or as perfectly as it should have been for many people. The truth is, most of the time, it’s a case of forgetting what the place is really meant for. And what is it for, really? Comfort. And there lies the problem—when setting it up without considering all the aspects of comfort, which is most essential to make sure that everything is going to work. And when we’re talking about comfort, don’t forget that it is not just about the feeling of comfort that you’d get from having a nice, comfy, personal space. Comfort, if it has to be experienced at all, will have to come from something that you can feel—temperature. Temperature comfort or the lack of it determines the success or failure of creating a perfect man cave. And so climate control is very important. The question is: What type of cooling and heating solution should you choose for your man cave? Many options are possible and available, but nothing comes near as perfect as ductless mini split system. Read on to learn why.
