Installing An Air Conditioning Unit In A Shipping Container Home

Over the years I have noticed a trend of things having to be done by “experts”. If you watch a lot of TV shows its not a case of doing it yourself but getting in people to do tasks. This is simply removing the ability from many people as instead of reaching for the toolbox they reach for the telephone to get things done. Air conditioning like many other things can be done by people at home. That includes servicing which I recommend every 3 months personally with filter cleaning every month.

Anyway just wanted to share this video of air conditioning being installed in a shipping container as it does show how quick and easy it can be done.

Air Conditioning For Shipping Container Home

Yesterday seen the installation of the ductless split unit for the shipping container apartment. We bought it from AC World. Also had another meeting with a spray foam contractor. I can’t wait for the installation as they keep telling me what a huge difference the insulation will make to the shipping container home.

Finally the air conditioning is finished and running also helps maintaining a constant temperature with the front door also being installed even though still minus its handle. Wiring has also been completed in the apartment at least. Still need to get on with caulking and painting the skirting boards before the kitchen cabinets can go in. Hopefully all this will be done by the end of the month.

intelligent light switch
After reading about a smart home system in Popular mechanics I decided to go ahead and install the system in my home by replacing some of the lighting switches around the house. Instead of having a single switch the system uses multiple switching where the switches communicate with each other around the house. Things like being able to turn on and off the garage lights from the sitting room as well as the outside lighting from the sitting room. At the same time the system also allows all the lights to be rigged to one switch so you can switch all the lights off when going out, Pretty smart stuff.
