Foundation House in Sonora

We got a call to come out and give an estimate on a home that had been using swamp coolers to cool for the past 20+ years. Customers wanted to put in a traditional ducted system for heating and cooling. The home is 3 bedrooms plus a man-cave type room and then the kitchen/living/dining are all open concept. There is multiple occupants and an infant in the home so the ability to operate each room at its own temp was very intriguing to the customer. Also, the kitchen had a finished basement under it so ductwork would have needed to go through their basement area to feed kitchen.

Problem: Swamp cooler doesn’t keep up after 95*. Swamp cooler brings in smoke from forest fires, pollens, dust, smog. Difficult to get ductwork through crawl space. Several occupants that would like zone control per room.

Solution: We installed a 5 zone Mitsubishi ductless mini split giving them zone control for each room as well as the living room. With whisper quiet technology they don’t have to worry about noise. This cleaned up air quality in the home and offered a solution to get around the basement as there is no ductwork.

This house was on foundation but it was actually built out about 5’ on the back side of the home. We installed special track pieces to hide the refrigerant lines and keep a nice clean look all the way to under the home.

The front side of the home was all brick and we needed to be able to put a unit in the room, so using an interior wall we where able to mount the head unit and pop out the back into the closet of a bedroom next to it. We ran the refrigerant line down the inside of the closet in track so its well hidden and cant be damaged, then dived under the floor and out to the outdoor unit.

The out-door we set on the back side of the home, on a prefabricated sound damping pad. Electrical came all the way from the other side of the home, through the attic and out the back side to the outdoor condenser.

Another professional install in the books….

Cabin in Twain Harte

This home is located in Twain Harte, California and had an existing heat source but no solution for cooling. The couple living in the home had just retired and wanted to enjoy their home more now that they would both be in the home for longer periods of time during the day.

Problem: No cooling source, and no place to run ductwork. The customer also wanted to have a more contemporary look to the wall mounted units.

Solution: We installed two designer series wall mounts in the home. A larger one for the living space and a smaller one for the bedroom.

This home had the challenge of getting the living room units refrigerant lines to the back side of the home as there was only a crawl space through part of downstairs and a finished second bedroom. So we had to run the refrigerant lines horizontal in the front of the home, wrap around back side of the gutter and come down the wall to allow the drain to have fall. From there we went horizontal again until we found the crawl space and had the ability to dive under the house.

On the back side of the home we came down next to the window and dove under the deck.

Electrical came from the back side of the breaker panel and right into crawl space. We then added a disconnect and flexible whip to the unit.

We set the unit on a styrofoam sound dampering pad.

We added refrigerant charge, registered their 12-year parts and compressor warranty with Mitsubishi and these customer are set to go enjoying the benefits of a nice quiet air conditioning system on those very hot days. As well as heat when next winter comes…
