In the process of building my new man cave/dream garage. The garage level has radiant heat in the floor. I'm planing to also hang a mini-split heat pump to cool the garage in the summer so I can play with my cars in comfort. The second floor will be a full apartment. It will have a full kitchen, bath and laundry. The second floor has a Bosch IDS 2.0 heat pump. This my first ownership of a heat pump. Backup heat will be a hydro-coil attached to the air handler and will be fed hot water from the boiler downstairs that is doing the floor. Bosch was not my first choice. I do mostly Carrier work but their high efficiency stuff is back ordered until at least October so I went with Bosch as the heating installation was holding things up. I was so impressed with this that I bought a second system to replace the aging R-22 system in the main house. The outside condensers are so quiet, I thought the first one was broken. All you hear is the turbulence of the air coming off the fan blade, not the 10 speed fan motor or the ECM compressor. So far, I'm really liking these. Expensive, yes but less then Carrier by almost half and I really like the construction along with a 10 year parts warranty. I'll post pictures later.

I am curious to see how this turns out for you. I put up a new garage a few years ago, 30 X 40 X 15' ceiling and had it spray foamed and it stays toasty warm even on the coldest days using minimal heating.
