My mother in law is moving in with us. That’s right but, not panicking yet. While she is moving here to live with us, she will easily be living in our guest house. The guest house was built in the fifties when our house was built. But, the main house has gone through a complete renovation with all the new conveniences added. The guest house was not so lucky. Rarely, does anyone easily stay out there. In fact, the space has become more storage site than living quarters. That all changes really soon. The main challenge is providing heating and cooling to the place. We live in an section that sees the triple digit temperatures quite regularly. So, I was perplexed with what to do for HVAC. I rang our local heating and cooling business for answers. A certified HVAC specialist showed up not long after to supply me some options. Using a window component was out due to HOA rules. I really didn’t want to put in air ducts and a full central air system. I was ecstatic I called our HVAC guy because he had the answer. The specialist advocated I put in a mini-split system. The main inside component is mounted high on the most strategic exterior wall. The outside components are connected to the wall component by tubes that connect to it through a small hole in the wall. The entire upgrade takes less than a afternoon. Additionally, no air ducts and the mini-split heating and cooling component is an energy miser. My mother in law will, at the very least, be cool in her new spot. I hope that makes her ecstatic.
