If your home does not come with central air or does not need central air, it may be best to go with a portable or window AC unit. These can be installed and started up same day, making them beneficial for when you need to have an AC unit up and running. One of the more difficult points of deciding on a portable AC unit is figuring out where to put them. Many call for being placed inside of a window, while others will have to sit on the floor. This can clash with minimalist design, which will throw off the look of the room. Here are some ways to have your air conditioning contractor install and disguise a portable AC unit in your minimalist home.
Bolt a slim window unit in a partial window
If there are any windows inside of your home that are smaller than usual, these are the perfect places to hide a window AC. Large and medium size windows let in a lot of sunlight and attract the eye. A smaller or thinner window won't filter in as much light and is the best place to put window unit. Have your air conditioning contractor choose a slim line window unit. This window unit should be bolted into the panel of the window. A slim unit will not stick out as much in the home nor the exterior, making it more minimal.
Get a curtain unit
A curtain unit is an air conditioning unit that can be installed on a ceiling, usually above a window. This type of air conditioner works well with those who would like to keep minimal clutter away from floors. This works for any size wall and can be easy hidden with the help of curtains installed above the AC unit. Curtains such as ceiling to floor curtains can hide the unit and make your home look taller. Be sure to have the curtans opened when running the air conditioning unit so that the air can flow freely.
Hang a ceiling ductless unit
One of the best places to install a unseen air conditioning unit is place it on the ceiling. A ceiling air conditioning unit will be shaped similar to a projector and not take away from the look of the room. Install a while ceiling unit so that it can blend in with the color of your wall. A ceiling unit will not use up any necessary household space which makes it the perfect choices for minimalists.
