I really like the idea of using ductless mini-splits in our new home for heating and cooling. Before I get too excited and start getting quotes, I was hoping for some opinions and feedback from those that have experience with these systems. I know it is a difficult question without knowing our heat load (Manual J in process), but any thoughts of whether it may work in our house are appreciated.
Zone 5 - Detroit, MI
2,400 SF (2 levels) + 1,200 SF basement
2x6 wall w/ cellulose + 1.5" polyiso (r-10) on exterior
R-10 under slab
R-20 basement wall
R-75 vented roof
Very simple rectangle shape house
Pretty open first floor
We went lighter on the exterior foam than we would have liked due to buildabilty issues with unfamiliar builder/framer.
