Forgive myself and others if I sound appreciate a dork, but I have never had a basement before. I was born plus raised in the deep south, plus down there the water table is too high for anyone to have a basement. Unless you live in a house on a hill, you simply cannot have a basement. In our new town, most people has a basement, plus most people have an attic, as well. This house is rife with storage space, plus I am giddy about it. I want to turn the basement into our Man Cave. The only potential problem I see is that the Heating plus A/C device is located down there, plus it generates a fair amount of noise plus ambient heat, then of course the gas furnace is supposed to generate heat, that’s the whole purpose, however when the actual equipment is in the same room that heat can get to be too overwhelming, then during the Winter weeks this will be perfect, because the gas furnace will make sure the basement is constantly sizzling plus dry. In the summer time weeks it could be a problem, so I will need to install some kind of cooling method to balance things out. I spoke to a local Heating plus A/C company over the iphone, who warned myself and others against doing that. She said that if I put an A/C next to the gas furnace then the hastily shifting temps will generate extra moisture. That extra moisture will slowly corrupt the air quality of the basement, plus eventually could lead to the growth of mold plus mildew. I don’t assume what to do!
