mini split heat/cool system
Hi looking for some all across the board info. on a mini split system from HVAC contractors,subs or customers that have this system? prices to expect,best system out there, how many sq.ft. does a single indoor unit cover,. I mean are they as great as these ads and sites make them out to be? etc,
I want to cool and heat 585 sq.ft. 2 bdrm. 1 bath. ,so all rooms are rather difficult to get equal heat or cool air too with the layout plan with one big window unit or several. Plus efficiency factors with a split like a central system would be great too. Some ads I have seen say these split systems are perfect for an addition of 500 to 1,000 sq.ft. ,or a supplimental heat and air source to your current central system should you find more heat and cool air is desired.'

[QUOTE=jimbo;255611]585 square feet is an ideal candidate for a split mini system. First, it eliminates need to install ductwork, which may or may not be a big deal depending on access. If you are in a climate where a heat pump will suffice for heating, a heat pump system will work well. You cannot adequately heat and/or cool two rooms with any kind of wall or window system, due to lack of air circulation.
Jimbo, it looks like you are online. I hope so. We have a rather complex (at least the HVAC guys think so) system set up. We have one room detached from the main house and it has a Mitsubishi Slim Jim mini-split, cooling that one room only. The mini split has been producing mold and sometimes is actually dripping condensate onto the little "vane" at the bottom that directs the air. Would you be able to communicate with me about this problem?
