Using Ductwork with a Ductless Minisplit
We have really enjoyed our first winter with our MRCOOL DIY Ductless Minisplit, a replacement for our oil-burning furnace (in Zone 5a, CT). When our furnace was removed, so were the ducts, but the duct boots are still in place. We have two minsplit heads, one in a bedroom at the end of the bedroom and bathroom “wing” (about 600 sq. ft.) that blows directly through the open bedroom door down the hallway. That entire wing is perfectly cozy, even during the most extreme days, and is rarely set above 65 degrees. However, at night I would like to enable the resident of that bedroom to close the door, if desired. There is a duct boot directly to the right of the doorway in the path of the minisplit. May I add ductwork in a “T” with an inline fan directing the air through this duct boot and into the two other bedrooms? One run would be a total of 5-6 feet, the other about 8-10 feet.
