My husband is a natural handyman & enjoys indoor modern home projects. We knew very well that our home required some remodeling & upkeep when both of us purchased it, this was where it’s appeal stemmed from. My partner tackled some really big projects when we first moved in. The wallpaper in the family room was old & 1960s purple flowers, this was the first thing to be replaced. Behind the wallpaper was some really nice wood walls that needed washing & staining. Once he completed this chore both of us moved our attention to the basement. We had a desire for our modern home to be the place where all of our daughters friends hung out we really needed a fun recreational area. The basement was the right size for young women to hang out besides the fact that it did not have sufficient cool air flow. We found an easy & rather cheap solution with the Ductless mini chop systems, and the ductless plan is also easier to install than most traditional systems. The hook-up between the outdoor & indoor units usually requires only a three-inch hole through a wall for the conduit, but since mini splits do not use ducts, we will avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork of central forced air units. Duct energy losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for conditioning. Considering the other cooling system options, mini splits gives you more flexibility for placement options. We decided to hang the indoor air unit on the ceiling to supply more chill air for the ladies, but they can be mounted, & there are some floor possibilities as well. Our new house is now the place to be!
