I have a shed behind my beach house that is the ideal spot for a beach house gym set up.
The floor is concrete, the ceiling eight-feet high plus there is a window at each end of the building.
The shed is approximately twenty feet long plus several feet wide plus outfitted with electricity. I have various overhead lights plus plenty of outlets. I’ve added a folding mat, incline bench, set of hand-weights, medicine ball, battle ropes, jump rope, kettlebells, mini trampoline plus an elliptical to the shed. For the majority of the year, the weather is mild enough that opening the windows is pleasant. I love the fresh air, however, there are a couple of weeks in the Summer plus a couple in the Wintertide that are a problem. At first, I tried managing the indoor temperature with a box fan plus a space heater. I didn’t like that the device took up room. Plus, I wasn’t satisfied with the level of cooling or heating. The shed felt overheated plus sticky in the peak of summer, making it just about impossible to get motivated to exercise. The conditions were so freezing in the Wintertide that I needed to bundle up in layers of clothing. It was tough to warm up my muscles, plus I sad about injury. I decided to install some type of permanent heating plus cooling solution. I did quite a bit of research plus came across ductless heat pumps. The system consists of an outdoor compressor linked by way of a conduit to a compact indoor air handler. The conduit required only a small 3-inch hole in an exterior wall. The indoor air handler needed mounting capabilities up high on the wall plus access to electricity. The ductless heat pump supplies both heating plus cooling. It runs quietly plus is lovelyly energy efficient.
