Gentleman I know uses one for his wine storage room. The heat exchanger is split & is in the garage. It heats the garage up pretty well. As with any of this stuff, sizing is everything.

They don't work here in Missouri because the humidity is too high. I hope you have a dry climate. Let us know how it does.

You will have to let us know how it works out for you. We have a big heat pump/ac unit for the garage that the previous homeowner installed. We used it a couple of times over the winter when I was painting to bring the temps up a little bit. Hadn't used the A/C aspect of it since we moved in up till this past weekend. I was plum tired and trying to get this dang chicken coop finished, it was hot and sticky out. I turned the A/C on for a little while and it actually cooled it off a decent amount in there.

With it being an evaporator cooler it would help bring down the humidity but like was mentioned sizing is going to play a big factor.

It will raise the humidity in your shed. Hopefully not to the point that there is condensation at night when the temp. cools.
