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.

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.

DIY on Demand

You can’t sling a alley cat these days without hitting some new do-it-yourself endeavor. But why would you? Slinging cat is weird and gross. You should only sling things like bolas and boomerangs. I’m a gifted bola slinger myself.

Moving on.

Do-it-yourself! Yes, everybody is into the ‘DIY’. It makes sense. Doing your own work on your home or car can save you a lot of money. Everybody loves money, even me. That’s why I’ve made so much of it with my many varied business ventures. I don’t do a lot with my money. I mostly reinvest, buy things I like, or put it in a big pile for the dog to roll around in. Way better than leaves.


Sorry, I got sidetracked.

What does DIY have to do with MrCool?

People are into DIY so much we here at MrCool International Enterprises decided it would be a good idea to design a MrCool heating and air system specifically for eager DIY enthusiasts. I wanted to call it the MrCool Install Your Own Ductless Mini-Split System, but the marketing department told me that was too wordy. They decided the MrCool DIY would be better.

If you’re wondering, the MrCool DIY ductless mini-split heat pump is pretty darned cool. Since it is designed for amateur installation, it comes with features you won’t find on many other systems.

The most important components of the MrCool DIY are the precharged ‘Quick Connect’ linesets. Every air conditioning system on the planet uses coolant, and most use chemical coolant. You really need to know what you’re doing when it comes to installing a regular air conditioner.

The MrCool DIY linesets are different. These linesets install easily, and come precharged with refrigerant. You don’t have to know anything about chemical coolants or air conditioner installation to properly connect the coolant linesets on the MrCool DIY.

The electrical work and the base mounting on the MrCool DIY are also designed for easy installation. Basically, wait I’m saying is that an idiot with a hammer, a screwdriver, and two brain cells to rub together could get a MrCool DIY up and running. You should be fine.

I’m MrCool

MrCool Quality

Hello there and welcome to the MrCool blog. It should go without saying, but I’m the man himself, Magnus Cool. You can call me Magnus, Mister Cool, Monsieur Cool, or Bruce. Bruce is my middle name.

Now, you might be asking yourself, “Who is MrCool? Why is he writing a blog? Is he really smart? Good looking? Where are my car keys? What happened to my bagel?!” Some of those questions I can answer, some I can’t. I did not eat your bagel, that was Carl in accounting.

First, I’m the big brain behind my company, MrCool. We develop and sell MrCool brand ductless mini-split heat pumps.

MrCool DIY

These compact machines are designed to deliver air comfort anywhere you need it. They’re lightweight, easy to install, built for energy efficiency, and won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Mainly because current international laws no longer allow us to accept human limbs as currency.

A lot of you are probably wondering what, exactly, a ductless mini-split heat pump actually is. That’s an easy one.

Simply, a heat pump is a heating and cooling machine. It works exactly like the conventional air conditioner you’re probably quite familiar with. Unlike an air conditioner, a heat pump can reverse its operating cycle to pump heat into the home instead of just cooling it. The name kind of says it all.

The ductless mini-split part of ductless mini-split heat pump refers to the fact that these units do not need air ducts to operate. A traditional central heating and air system pushes conditioned air through ventilation ducts to different areas of the home.

This is great, if you have air ducts, not so great when you don’t. A ductless mini-split does not need them, so homes without can still get cooled or heated air.

The mini part of the name just means these systems are small. They’re still powerful, just a lot easier to place and install. They can go, well, just about anywhere you want.

And now you know. Which is half the battle, or so I’m told.
