It's "simple" physics. The temperature doesn't matter; insulation is insulation and works both ways. A 50 delta from inside to outside. 117 to 67 inside. Or in the case of Alberta, an 80 delta, -20 outside to 60 inside. It'll be tricky to find an 80 delta in the heat (hopefully).

Same as a thermos. Throw a flare in that ice box and it'll stay warm.

I can put another jacket on. I want to see you remove skin. If I have to pick 100, I'd rather it be -100.

heat is Much easier to obtain without lots of electricity... Fuel for some type of fire is easy.. so if you get it insukated to where you are able to cool on batteries / solar. then you'll likel;y be able to heat it pretty easily..

I wouldnt attempt using the heat pump function of a mini split except on the mildest days of chill.. the heat function uses more electricity and has the compressor run map higher average than the cooling run map.. at least on my 3 splits thats the case..

Wood stoves will run you out of a house. Heating a bus with one might be tricky because of that. Too much heat. Throttle the air WAY back.

Had a small furnace in my truck that heated my sleeper worked to about 5 degrees Fahrenheit i ran the engine below that to prevent gelling as i was in a lot of 15 to 20 below it ran off diesel about 1 cup a hour worked good even tho sleepers have poor insulation

Due to it being a Ductless Wall Mounted does that effect the circulation of Air/Heat???
