When I 1st started living out here, it was so much weirder than it is now. Even with all the planning and strategic execution of my project, it was tough at first. Living off the grid is not something that was done all that much back when I first chose to do it. But these afternoons, I even have residential Heating and A/C in my chalet way out here in the forest. It was so funny when the Heating and A/C pro had to follow me all the way out here. I had paid a bit extra for them to make the long trip. Still, that Heating and A/C supplier was pretty blown away by how far out in the woods I easily live. The Heating and A/C pro was able to install the ductless heat pump that afternoon and was back in the world by night’s fall, however and I was now the proud owner of a ductless heat pump. It’s just me and my wifey Sam out here so it’s not like my pal and I need a ton of space. So just one ductless heat pump was all we really needed. When it comes to heating, the wood stove provides all of that and then some. But as Sam and I are getting older, my pal and I sure wanted some better air conditioning for the Summer months. It can get thick and overheated here to the point that fans just weren’t enough. With the advanced solar array Sam and I installed along with the advancements in Heating and A/C technology made residential Heating and A/C a option for us. Sam and I even used the heating from the ductless heat pump a few times this past Winter… Normally, there is a fire going for our heating all Winter. But when Sam and I have to travel or go out overnight, it’s nice to have the ductless heat pump while I get the fire lit again.
