Now we are able to have perfect heating and cooling no matter what time of year it happens to be, and we don’t have to rely on the fireplace for our heating.
My wife and I invested in this lovely little lake house in a nice location in the mountains. It’s a bit of a drive to get to the cabin, however we invested in all the right things for this location over the years. We first got the place when our children were a little bit older, and they were able to love the place as much as all of us did. The thing we absolutely love is that the cabin came with a nice fireplace that keeps the whole place toasty in the winter months. Originally, there was no electricity, but we decided to install solar panels and we got an electric stove in there. There is already a wood burning stove, and we left that there because it looks so amazing. We also decided to have a ductless mini split that works with the solar power to our cabin. The ductless mini split was the ideal option because it’s so energy efficient and we didn’t have to worry about installing air ducts into the cabin. Now we are able to have perfect heating and cooling no matter what time of year it happens to be, and we don’t have to rely on the fireplace for our heating. Of course, we absolutely love using the fireplace. It is nice having the fireplace because you never know if something bad might happen, like we might not have enough electricity to run our ductless mini split. That can happen when you don’t get enough sunlight from storms or you experience constant cloudy days.
