I have a lodge up in the hills. The terrain plus the weather are much unusual than those here at home. Primarily, I bought it to be able to have my youngsters like a get away in a locale with a more classic four season environment. The lodge is fairly primitive. There has been no HVAC to speak of in the lodge. There is a wood stove for heat in the winter. And it can run you out of there when it gets actually fired up. However, there has never been any sort of HVAC system. Now that the youngsters are older, the family spends quite a bit more time at the lodge in the summer. There is a lake within walking distance plus just miles of hiking trails. It actually is ideal for us. However, the more the two of us stay there, the more I’m leaning toward finding an air conditioner solution. I’m not too wild about a window air conditioner. I just don’t prefer them plus they are just so incredibly noisy; kind of defeats the purpose of all that serenity. And, the air conditioner for the cabin needs to be something myself and others plus the ladies can install. I’ve been looking on the internet, and I think I have found the answer. There is a fairly up-to-date HVAC system called the mini split heating and cooling system. The mini split device is completely ductless plus 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 the lodge. I’ve studied the schematics so, I believe confident my girls and I can get this thing installed officially. It may take us the better half of a weekend but, I think it will be totally worth it.
