Do ductless mini splits make sense for a large house?
We’re in the middle of designing a new house to be built at the Jersey Shore and would like to keep our carbon footprint as small as we can for a rather large house (about 3600 sq ft). We’re interested in ductless mini splits so we don’t have ductwork in the attic and crawlspace and for their superior efficiency. Can this system work with so many rooms? The first floor living space will be a fairly open floor plan, but the second/third floors will have 6 bedrooms/6 bathrooms, so lots of closed doors.
Also, being at the beach, we really need to be able to control humidity. Would a ductless system with the right house ventilation be up to the task?
I’ve read many of the articles here and on Gardenweb but can’t find any that address using these systems in large, many roomed homes. Thanks in advance for your help!
