Default Split heating ac units

We are trying to figure out if it’s possible to use a split

heating

air-conditioning unit in our yurt that’s up here in the Northeast Kingdom. Although we do have the

insulation

in the walls and ceiling and floor, We find on hot days it’s still can get uncomfortably hot and in the winter it’s extremely cold here so we need an additional

heating

source besides our very canadian drolet wood stove with blower, especially if we plan to rent it out on Airbnb. Has anyone use the split systems if so how did you install it? And are you happy with it?

The units I have seen have been mounted in framed houses, either above a door, or high up on a wall near a flat ceiling. I'm gonna guess -and it is a guess only- that would be doable in a yurt, assuming there is framing member for solid mount, and mechanicals accessible for an install. Good luck..

I made a bench with a framed up back the height of the GER wall. Think of a large chair with a high wooden back. I made it big enough that it is stable with the interior portion of the split unit attached.

The bench also has storage under it.

It is slid almost up against the yurt wall and the supply lines come up through the floor. Works great.

We have had many customers use ductless units in their yurts. The air handling unit can mount onto the rafters, onto the rafter supports (if they have the snow & wind kit) or onto an interior partition wall. The coolant line goes straight down through the floor and out to the condenser outside.
