How large a space are you hoping to cool? One room? One LARGE room? One SMALL room? One floor of a two-story house? A whole four-story house?

What's your climate like where you live? Very hot, dry, year-round? Cool most of the year but two weeks of hot during the summer? Just a little too warm in summer? Blazing hot all summer, including nighttime?

How's the insulation in the building you want to cool? Is it a plain steel building with no insulation? Is it a trailer? Is it a frame house with 4" walls and R13 fiberglass insulation? An old frame house with no insulation? An adobe building? A timberframe house with 8" of polyisocyanurate foam insulation?

All these are important to know when you select an air conditioner.

For most of the USA, assuming a frame house with 4" of fiberglass insulation, a 10,000BTU air conditioner will cool one large room or two small rooms pretty well, or a 5,000BTU AC will do one medium-sized room. Different places, and different house designs, and different types & amounts of insulation, will all have a profound effect on how much AC you need/want.

What should I do in order to make sure my dog house stays cool in the summer?

In order to keep your dog's house cool during hot summer days, consider to do the following:
  • Place the dog house in the shade so it doesn't get too hot from the sun.
  • Make sure that the house is ventilated so warm air can come out.
  • If it gets really hot inside the house, you should put a fan to cool the house down or buy a small air conditioning unit made for dog houses.
  • Place a cooling mat on the ground of the house. This will help the dog to cool down during the hot summer days.

My neighbor is selling his Suncast DH350 Dog House for a really good price. Is it worth me buying it even though its already 5 years old?

It really depends on the quality of the dog house. If it's been kept in good condition and it can be used safely for your dog, then I say go for it. A new one costs around $80, so the price your neighbor is selling it should be much lower.

How much will it cost me to buy a duplex dog house for my 2 dogs? I just think its much cuter than buying 2 separate ones.

If you are looking for a duplex dog house, take a look at the Petco website. They have a nice one for around $800 made from cedar wood.

Due to having 3 large dogs I think my forced air heat ductwork should be cleaned ???

Hello, with the 3 large dogs I would say so. Actually without the dogs, your ductwork should be cleaned out. This depends on how old the house is and how much dust has accumulated over the years. With animals, the ductwork as you thought should be cleaned out more frequently. You will discover that there is less dust in the house after a cleaning.

I have a 3 car garage in Minnesota all insulated attached to house. What size and type of heater do I need. I also have 4 dogs that go in and out constantly. its about 840 SQ FT

Generally they say about 10 per SQ/Ft so in reallity you would need 8400 watts. You would then have to consider your ceiling height. If it is a 10 ft. ceiling and the fact that your dogs are going in and out you may need even more.
