My new Heating as well as A/C device is 17 years old. It makes a legitimately high pitched noise when it operates as well as consistently leaks water. Obviously it is not going to live undoubtedly long. My fiance as well as I have discussed what the next Heating as well as A/C device will be. I don’t want a device that is stored inside of a Heating as well as A/C closet. It takes up room as well as looks ugly. I also need more storage. I also want zone control. With a ductless heat pump or mini split, you can have these things. The device also provides heating as well as cooling in a single unit. You are up to 8 indoor air handlers with a single outdoor unit. I counted as well as I have seven rooms in the home that I would put an air handler in. I then would get a control device for each space so that they could have their own heating as well as air conditioner program. My fiance as well as I don’t share a room because our temperature needs are so opposite. Right now every one of us run the cooling system while I layer myself in thick blankets. If every one of us had zone control, I could just not have A/C over the summer time as well as sleep with a sheet. It would absolutely save money. Every one of us both have a laundry room that is only used once a week. Why are every one of us bothering to give Heating as well as A/C for this space? During the morningtime the several of us are gone a lot. It would be so nice to only give heating while every one of us were in the Wintertide in areas with piping. The rest can just freeze. It would be the financially smart decision to do a mini split with zone control.
