I am updating the lanai attached to our house. The lanai used to be all screens that let in dirt, water as well as wind. The overhead fan got disgusting as well as the tile flooring looks terrible. My updates included taking out the screen as well as replacing with air slim windows. I swapped out the tile floor for nice hardwood. I also ripped out the icky overhead fan. Now that the lanai gets no fresh air or has an overhead fan, it is sweltering. The sun pours in from the windows. I guess love I am in a sauna or in a tanning booth. I think our next change will be getting a ductless cooling system installed. The ductless mini break can entirely mount on the one wall with the outdoor air compressor outside of the wall. I could have cooling powering that small room basically all year. It would costs me hardly anything. The room is air slim with the windows. No AC would leak out as well as cost me money. The ductless mini break would only affect the lanai’s temperature. It would be almost dirt cheap to cool that room for the few hours I spend out there. The only issue would be coming up with the money to buy the ductless AC as well as install it. I already spent a ton of money on the other lanai updates. I can’t actually afford to sink another few hundred dollars into that room. I could maybe try to make it through Winter time as well as then Springtime for the AC in the Summer. That way I can gather some money.
