We received a call from a customer that had a cabin in the Arnold California area. We do a lot of homes in the Arnold area and know how bad these cabin-style homes can be in the summertime. We often find that a multi-zone ductless air conditioning installation in an Arnold, California cabin perfectly addresses the hottest rooms upstairs. The outstanding heat provided by these ductless heat pumps is often a bonus and it was here too.
Problem: The homeowner has a loft that is unbearably hot in the summertime and they rent the home out for weekends and holidays so they needed zone control in the bedrooms.
Solution: We installed a 19 SEER, 3-zone Mitsubishi ductless mini split.
This home had a source of heat and just wanted the ability to cool the home in the summer. In many cabin-style homes, we can put one large head unit in the upstairs to cover the entire area but in this case, they had two small bedrooms as well.
So the system was designed with one big 2-ton head unit that would take the brunt of the cooling load and would keep the living room and kitchen area cool and the customer wanted it below her mirrors so we squeezed it in between the bathroom and bedroom while running the refrigerant lines through the closet and outside.
Then for the bedrooms, we put individual room wall mounts so tenants have zone control when the doors are shut.
We also added WiFi control of all the head units via the Kumo app so the customer could control the room temps and set max and minimum temps that couldn’t be overridden by tenants renting the place.
We hung the unit on the side of the cabin to keep it out of the snow level so there is still the ability to heat the rooms individually in the wintertime…
