Heating capacity of ductless system: 23K Btuh vs. 25K Btuh
I am looking at having installed a Gree ductless system into my older, 2-story, not tightly sealed home in Puget Sound area of Washington. The house was built in the 1950s at the latest, may be older by the style.
My question is whether it is worth the extra $600 for a 2K increase in BTUH? I am aiming to heat the lower level of the house, with high ceilings. The unit would go into a large open area at the front of the house, hoping some of the heat will find its way to the back of the house.
I have used wood heat in past years, with a ceiling fan in the open front area and a box fan in the hallway to move heat to the back. Not against continuing the fan setup.
So, $600 for an extra 2000 BTUH, and seer /eer increase from 18/12 to 21/13, EVO+ vs the Terra. Worth it?
Thanks for the input.
