I have a cabin up in the hills. The terrain and the weather are much different those here at home. Primarily, I bought it to be able to have my kids enjoy a get away in a place with a more classic four season environment. The cabin is fairly primitive. There has been no HVAC to speak of in the cabin. There is a wood stove for heat in the winter. And it can run you out of there when it gets really fired up. However, there has never been any sort of HVAC system. Now that the kids are older, the family spends quite a bit more time at the cabin in the summer. There is a lake within walking distance and just miles of hiking trails. It really is ideal for us. However, the more we stay there, the more I’m leaning toward finding an air conditioning solution. I’m not too wild about a window A/C. I just don’t like them and they are just so incredibly noisy. Kind of defeats the purpose of all that serenity. And, the A/C for the cabin needs to be something me and the kids can install. I’ve been looking on the internet. Believe I have found the answer. There is a fairly new HVAC system called the mini split heating and cooling system. The mini split unit is completely ductless and doesn’t block a window. The air handler is mounted high atop an exterior wall. It’s then connected to a small condenser which is tucked up under the eaves of a house. I’ve studied the schematics so, I feel confident my children and I can get this thing installed properly. It may take us the better part of a weekend but, I think it will be totally worth it.
