Do mini-split systems need to balance capacity inside and out?
In a nutshell: I’ve done the load calcs for a two zone building (large studio, small office). I need 24k BTUs overall in cooling (Bahamas) — that’s 4k in the office and 20k in the studio. We’re using ceiling cassettes for the indoor delivery, but of course the lowest capacity cassette is 7k. Can I do this:
7k ceiling cassette Office
2 @ 12k ceiling cassettes Studio
24,000 BTU compressor/heat pump
Will that work? My other option is to bump up to a 28,000 BTU outside and provide a 9k & 12K combo of cassettes in the studio.
