Tiny Home Cooling Works Best with MRCOOL

tiny home cooling

Tiny home cooling and heating is, obviously, an important consideration. If you’re thinking about joining this growing movement, let us explain to you exactly why a MRCOOL ductless mini-split heat pump is your best option.

Tiny Home Cooling & You!

Good planning is a critical step when transitioning from a conventional house to a tiny home. Make sure you don’t forget how you’re going to stay warm or cool! The compact requirements of a tiny home mean you can’t rely on conventional central air conditioners or furnaces. If you tried, one of those units would take up a huge chunk of your livable space.

Which is bad.

You don’t have a lot of space as it is. The last thing you want to do is wake up in the morning and crawl over the furnace to get out of bed.

You need an air conditioning and heating system perfectly designed for non-traditional living.

MRCOOL Ductless Mini-Split Technology

Okay, so we didn’t actually design our MRCOOL mini-split heat pumps for tiny homes, but they work great anyway! Ductless technology has a ton of natural advantages compared to old fashioned window units or portable systems.

The biggest advantage is that, of course, a ductless unit is designed to work without air ducts for ventilation. Your tiny home is not going to use air ducts, so you need that sort of system.

Secondly, the only part of a mini-split that needs to be inside your tiny home is the air handler. This will not take up any of your valuable floor real estate. You can mount the air handler high up on an interior wall to stay out of your way in your tiny space.

Thirdly and perhaps most importantly, MRCOOL ductless mini-split heat pumps are designed for energy efficient and eco-safe operation. We manufacture some of the most efficient ductless units on the market, and all of our products rely on R-410A refrigerant. R-410A is a non-ozone depleting, chlorine-free substitute for last generation’s Freon. Tiny home living is about shrinking your footprint, and that should include your energy bill and your ozone impact.

Remember, with a MRCOOL ductless heat pump, you can live the tiny life you want without the sweat you don’t.

Do You Ductless Mini-Split DIY?

Maybe it’s the economy. Maybe it’s just people getting more careful about how they spend. In any case, do-it-yourself home projects are all the rage. Hit YouTube and you’ll find DIY videos on everything from air conditioners to zeppelins.

Okay, maybe not zeppelins, but I couldn’t think of any other good z-words.

Ductless Mini-Split DIY & You!

Ductless mini-split heat pumps and air conditioners are a good way for you to get specific, targeted heating and air exactly where you want it. They’re great for sun rooms, new additions to an existing home, or for making a garage bearable in hot summer weather.

You’ve decided you want and/or need a ductless mini-split. What about installation? Should you hire a professional or should you do it yourself?

Good question.

To DIY or Not?

The typical ductless mini-split heat pump is a complicated machine. If you are not a certified heating and air technician, you should definitely NOT try to install one of these by yourself. Aside from the potential damage you might do to yourself or the system, amateur installation voids the warranty terms for most ductless or conventional HVAC units.

There is one glaring exception to this rule.

The MrCool DIY ductless mini-split heat pump is specifically designed for amateur, non-professional installation. You don’t have to know anything about electrical wiring, refrigerant lines, or HVAC technology to put in your own MrCool DIY simply and easily.

Before you get ductless mini-split DIY crazy with MrCool, here are some skills you should master:

  • Modern hammer swinging.
  • Screws, nut, and bolt usage and taste.
  • Self-immolation avoidance behavior.
  • Semi-functional fingers.
  • Pants (optional).

More seriously, as long as you can wield a few basic tools and handle a measuring tape, you can install your own MrCool DIY unit.

And if you ever get stuck, you can always refer to our helpful YouTube videos:


So, don’t worry, and start DIY.

Quality of Life

MrCool Quality

Quality of life is a phrase marketing companies like to throw around a lot. What does it really mean?

A quick Wikipedia search can answer that question.

Quality and Air Conditioning

Modern humans have a better quality of life than any other civilization that ever existed in the history of our entire planet. We live longer, we eat better, we work less, and we play more. Plus, we’re smarter, healthier, and a lot more comfortable day-to-day. We didn’t evolve these advances; we built them using tools and technologies developed over thousands of years.

So, where does MrCool come in?

Modern heating and air conditioning technology plays a major role in our everyday quality of life. Sweating while playing dodgeball is okay. Sweating because it’s just darned hot outside is not. A crisp autumn wind can feel refreshing. An icy winter gale does not. Fortunately, our ability to control interior temperature means you don’t have to suffer through the seasons like your ancestors did.

Lucky you.

This does not mean that all air conditioners are made equal. An improperly sized system will either fail to adequately heat and cool or leave your house feeling clammy. A unit that improperly dehumidifies can lead to the growth of interior pollutants like mold and fungus. An old, energy inefficient system might do the job when it comes to air comfort, but will cost you an arm and a leg to keep running.

And that’s why you should rely on MrCool ductless mini-split heat pumps. Our systems are energy efficient, easy to install, and affordable. They heat, cool, and dehumidify. Many can even help you with your laundry and get the kids out of bed in the morning.

Okay, strictly speaking, those last two may not be entirely true. The bottom line here is that a MrCool ductless mini-split is going to deliver the quality of life you want at a price you can afford.

Financial Literacy Month?

Real Financial Literacy

Yes, it’s weird, but April is actually National Financial Literacy Month in the United States.

Wait, what the heck does that even mean?

Basically, the US government thinks it’s a good idea for US citizens to be informed about healthy financial habits. Stuff like don’t spend more than you make, don’t overuse credit cards, never look a gift horse in the mouth, don’t pet a burning dog, and so on.

Try not to get too excited.

Financial Literacy and MrCool

And now you’re probably saying to yourself, “Sure, I get that, but why are you, MrCool, talking about financial literacy?”

And I say, “Because saving money is just as important as earning money.”

And you say back, “Oh, you mean like saving money every month thanks to a high efficiency MrCool ductless mini-split heat pump like the Premier?”

And I say, “Exactly.” An energy efficient home heating and air conditioning system is a great way to stay ahead of your bills. After all, no one wants to sacrifice home air comfort just to save a few bucks. If they did, you’d see a lot more sweaty people. High efficiency systems, like all the systems you’ll find at MrCool.com, will let you shave dollars of your utility bill and stay totally cool at the same time.

So, how’s your financial literacy?

If it’s not as good as you would like, you need the MrCool Premier, MrCool Oasis, or the MrCool DIY. Studies that I just conducted among my office staff have shown that investing in one of these high efficiency systems will improve your own financial literacy by as much as 50%. You can’t argue with that. It’s science.

Okay, okay, maybe you could argue with that, but it is absolutely true that you can save money with a high efficiency, properly installed ductless mini-split system.

Building Your Own Home HVAC Unit!

Have you ever tried building your own home heating and air system using nothing more than the junk in your grandmother’s garage and/or basement? No? I have. It’s way harder than you think it’s going to be. At first, sure, you make good progress, because you found a fan. Then, everybody in the neighborhood freaks after you lose control of the fire.

But whatever.

The point I’m trying to make is that building your own HVAC unit is not easy. Installing a unit you bought off the shelf is not as difficult, but it’s no walk in the park either. If you don’t know anything about how HVAC systems function, what to do with coolant lines, or the proper application of a screwdriver, you can run into some real problems. The MrCool DIY ductless mini-split heat pump takes a previously impossible task, and makes it achievable.

By pretty much anyone.

I do mean anyone. I successfully installed the prototype MrCool DIY in our main office, and there was only one fatality. He was an intern, so I don’t think it counts. If you don’t have any interns, you have nothing worry about.

Plus, with the MrCool DIY, it’s almost impossible to start a fire that will burn down your grandmother’s entire neighborhood.

I Love Sushi!

You know what I love? Sushi. You know how I love eating it? While not sweating. Do you know the best way to eat sushi? No? Obviously, the best way to east sushi is while a MrCool ductless mini-split heat pump runs quietly and conveniently in the background.


If you’re having trouble enjoying this great Japanese contribution to world cuisine, it might be because your home heating and air system just isn’t cutting it. You need to get online and order a MrCool ductless mini-split heat pump. I recommend the Premier, it’s pretty much the best ductless mini-split on the market.

Premier not floating your boat?

You should check out my Oasis. The Oasis is cool, calming, and, unlike a real oasis, neither packed with sand or mouthy camels. Camels can be real jerks. We were going to package a live camel with every Oasis we shipped, but it turns out shipping live camels across the world is incredibly expensive.

Of course, maybe you’re more of a do-it-yourself kind of person. Might I recommend my MrCool DIY? Even if you don’t know anything about modern heating and cooling technology, installing the MrCool DIY is simple. We built it for the amateur who wants great air comfort while saving money on installation.

Check out MrCool Premier, Oasis, or DIY on MrCool.com, and maybe you’ll finally be able to enjoy a nice California roll.

You’re welcome.

Take a Minute to Relax and Appreciate Me

Taking a moment everyday to kick back and relax is important. That’s why I make sure I devote a solid seven hours to nothing but relaxation every single day. It’s not that I want to sit on the veranda of my beach house drinking expensive scotch while seagulls poop on surfers. I could be doing other things, but I put mental and bodily health high up on my list of priorities.

I’m a temple.

Shocking though it may be, not everyone has a beach house and a veranda. Some people are forced to relax in the only home they own. Unusual, sure, but that’s just the way it is. How can those goodhearted, hobbit-like people ensure they relax appropriately?

With a MrCool ductless mini-split heat pump.

Let’s take a look at the MrCool Oasis. The Oasis is a great ductless mini-split system. It gets reliable energy efficiency, and provides real-life air comfort. You can’t relax when you’re sweaty or when your freezing. Fortunately for you, the Oasis can cool you down in hot weather, and warm you up when it gets cold outside.

Or inside. I guess you’re really more concerned about the inside temperature than the outside one. Anyway, I’m rambling.

My point is that if you have trouble finding your relaxation location, get a MrCool Oasis, MrCool DIY, or MrCool Premier ductless mini-split heat pump. They’re almost as good as a beach house, a veranda, and all the Spanish-language soap operas you can watch.

Now, if I could only learn Spanish.

Why I, MrCool, Am the Best

In case you don’t know, I’m Magnus Cool, owner, founder, and fearless leader of MrCool.com, MrCool International Enterprises, MrCool Industries of America, and a lot of other things with the name ‘MrCool’ in them. I could talk all day about my myriad life accomplishments such as my extravagant stamp collection, my ninja skills, or my inventive technological genius.

But I won’t.

What I will tell you about is why my company, MrCool, manufactures the best danged ductless mini-split heat pumps on the market. They’re really ‘cool’.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist that one.

I don’t want to go on too long, so I just made you an easy-to-read list.

  • MrCool ductless mini-split heat pumps will make you cool. Not like Travolta-grade cool, but physically cool.
  • They can make you warm too.
  • They are built for energy efficiency. What does that mean? It’s science-talk for saving money.
  • They are eco-safe thanks to R-410A refrigerant. I don’t exactly know what R-410A refrigerant is, but my engineers assured me it wouldn’t turn anyone into a frothing mutant beast.
  • All my heat pumps are packed with cool features like sleep mode, low ambient cooling, multiple system protections, and an anti-super spider gravity field.
  • MrCool brand heat pumps are guaranteed to remain docile and motionless. When the robot aliens arrive with their machine-control rays, my heat pumps will not come to life and attack you. Watch out for your toaster though.

And that’s mostly it. There’s other stuff, but I have to get to a round of golf in 20 minutes.
