Purchased A Hunting Cabin? Tips To Stay Cool And Warm In It

Posted on

If you purchased a new hunting cabin, you need to ensure you can stay both cool and warm when you need to. This will give you a much more enjoyable hunting trip, as well as for anyone else you bring along with you. Below are two options you have to help you decide which would be best for your cabin.

Keep You Cool

If you plan to only use the cabin during the summer months, one way you can stay cool is by installing a window air conditioning unit. A window unit has all the components, such as the condenser, compressor, coil or expansion valve, cooling coil, and evaporator, all enclosed in one box. If you do not want to take up any of your windows, you can make a slot in one of the walls to put the window air conditioning unit in.

When choosing a window air conditioner, make sure you choose one that has the right BTU output (British Thermal Units). The higher the BTU the more expensive the unit. Talk with the salesman and tell them how large the cabin is and they can help you choose the right BTU.

Keep You Cool and Warm

If you plan to use your hunting cabin throughout the year and will be using it a lot, you should consider having an HVAC unit installed. This way you can stay cool and warm when needed. These units have three major parts: an evaporator, a condenser, and a compressor. The condenser and compressor are in the outside unit and the evaporator is inside.

If you choose to have an HVAC unit installed, make sure it is the right size. For example, if it is too small, it would run much more to keep the temperature at the right level, and if it is too large, it would be hard to keep your cabin at the right temperature and put a lot of strain on the HVAC unit so it would not last as long. This would result in a lot of loss money for you as HVAC units can be expensive.

The HVAC contractor that installs your unit can help you choose the right size for your cabin, as well as teach you how to properly maintain it. They can also likely answer any questions you may have about an air conditioning unit if this is what you choose. Contact a company like A Bailey Plumbing to learn more.
