When my partner and I got married and bought a house, both of us were so excited to begin our new life together; well, she was a photographer and correctly would work in an office with a darkroom, but she decided she wanted a darkroom at home… So both of us hired some companies to set up the room, and they also proposed that both of us have a ductless mini split installed so both of us have a zone dedicated to that room with its own customized temperature control settings. This is because you want the chemicals mixed with the distilled water to be around 68 degrees and it’s easiest to achieve this by keeping the temperature control settings stable in the room, you don’t want those uneven temperatures fluctuating while both of us were in film development. So my partner was able to get the room set up perfectly and she had shelving and a sink installed as well for all her film developing needs. We didn’t simply just put any random heating, ventilation and A/C zone in her dark room though, both of us figured both of us might as well install ductless zones all throughout the house! The good thing is that everything runs off the same condenser because you can connect up to 8 zones off a single condenser unit. We’ve been incredibly comfortable living in our beach cabin and I care about the fact that my partner is able to do a lot of her own tasks from the beach cabin these days, then I get to spend more time with her and that’s a major plus for me! Of course, there are times when she will have to go into her workplace, but she’s considering starting her own photography business.
