My modern Heating, Ventilation, & A/C component is 17 years old.
It makes a really high pitched noise when it operates & typically leaks water.
Obviously it is not going to live unquestionably long. My fiance & I have discussed what the next Heating, Ventilation, & A/C component will be. I don’t want a device that is stored inside of a Heating, Ventilation, & A/C closet. It takes up room & 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 & cooling in a single unit. You are up to 8 indoor air handlers with a single outdoor unit. I counted & I have many rooms in the house that I would put an air handler in. I then would get a thermostat for each space so that they could have their own heating & a/c program. My fiance & I don’t share a room because our temperature needs are so opposite. Right now the people I was with and I run the cooling system while I layer myself in thick blankets. If the people I was with and I had zone control, I could just not have A/C over the summer time & sleep with a sheet. It would absolutely save currency. We both have a laundry room that is only used once a week. Why are the people I was with and I bothering to supply Heating, Ventilation, & A/C for this space? During the morningtime the 2 of us are gone a lot. It would be so nice to only supply heating during the Wintertide in areas with piping. The rest can just freeze. It would be the financially smart decision to do a mini cut with zone control.
