And when I say "picture frame", I need to post a video of this thing opening and closing, but here's a picture of it open, when the unit is turned on:

That is really neat. I just had ductless A/C installed last summer. Is it ever ugly. I wish I had known about this as an option.

I had no idea what it looked like, 'cause it's a shop, but I now have more reason to trust the judgement of Robert Grupé, of Grupé Bros. heating & plumbing.

So, can you prop it in the open position when the gimmicky mechanism dies on you?

(Big fan of the KISS principle.)

Do you have a specific piece of art or photo that you are putting in the frame?

Larry, I don't yet, but my friend Phil who's got a large format printer and does some incredible landscape photography has offered to print something up for me.

Shadow, it's basically a fairly dense radiator and an IR receiver for the thermostat, so, yeah, if the mechanism ever breaks it'd be easy to jam it into the open position.
