Ductless Mini-Split Heat and Air rustic
 

Ductless Mini-Split Heat and Air

Rustic cabin nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, NC. The cabin is a riff on the Appalachian culture and its architecture. Built as if it rose from the local woods, by local craftsmen with the tradition of seat-of-the-pants resourcefulness. The cabin echoes the Appalachian traditions of small is beautiful, and richness in simplicity.
Cypress wall panelling with nickel groove. The Mitsubishi ductless mini-split provides heating and cooling to the entire cabin.

Builder: River Birch Builders, Asheville, NC 828-777-3501

How well does this gadget actually work? My husband and I have thought about replacing our current AC system with something new and we've been at a loss of what to get. Any information about new AC systems would be greatly appreciated. http://www.armstrongservicesinc.com/Heating-Air-Conditioning/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The cabin has hot water, plumbing and electricity. “In that sense, it’s not rustic,” Britten says. The plumbing cost $3,000; the electricity, $3,400. A ductless mini split heat pump system for $3,400 provides the main heating and air conditioning.More: Get ideas from more cabin getaways
Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to 10 Ways to Hide That Air Conditioner
Individual mini-split air handling units extend about 7 inches (18 centimeters) from the wall and are about 3 feet (90 centimeters) wide, depending on the model. They are controlled with a remote control and have vents that open out from the casing when the unit is in use. To work efficiently they need to be unobstructed and placed high in the room so that the cool air will have the greatest effect as it drops to the floor. To keep the unit from sticking out like a sore thumb, you’ll want to integrate it with your room’s decor and design. Here are some good places for the unit, along with design tips.
