If you own a prefab tiny house in a hotter part of the country, then you will probably have an air conditioning system installed in your home. The air conditioning system in your modular home requires regular maintenance just like residential air conditioning systems. If you fail to take good care of these units, then you will most likely experience issues or troubles with it in the near future.
However, several people who own small prefab homes are not aware of the fact that sometimes the design of your home can make the installation and repair of air conditioning systems a bit difficult or tricky. This is the reason why you should consult with a modular home manufacturer and seek their advice before buying an air conditioning system for your house. Modular home manufacturers will be easily able to suggest the right air conditioning system for any prefab tiny house model in a matter of few minutes.
Let us assume that you already have an air conditioning system in your prefab home. If you want to make the most of the system and use it for a longer period time, then you will have to regularly inspect the system by hiring an experienced technician. If there are any minor or major issues to the system, you should repair them immediately.
Note that if the condenser unit and furnace of your split air conditioning are incompatible, then you will regularly experience issues with the system. This is the major reason why you should use the products from the same brand for both the outdoor and indoor units of your AC system.
In certain cases, the ducts in your modular home that are located near the floor can get worn too quickly. So, you should also inspect the ducts within your prefab tiny house and ensure that they are in good condition. You should be also ready to replace them with a new one if necessary. Some prefab homeowners try to solve their AC problems by using window AC units but this doesn’t necessarily improve the situation.
However, if your modular home is not capable of accommodating split systems, then you will have to look for package units or self-contained systems, as they can be positioned on the outside of your home. This means that you will have more space in the interior of your prefab tiny house. Consult with an experienced AC manufacturer before making a decision.
