Mini split head placement
I want to put a 24,000 BTU mini split into a single story structure that measures about 36 X 24. It is divided into one long space and three bedrooms across the back. I know I won’t get anything into the BRs without open doors but the simplest location is on one of the narrow end walls in the main area. My question is whether the unit will adequately condition the whole space or if the localized feedback from the one end will control temps and the far end won’t get cool. Or is it small enough that with the air movement I don’t need to worry? The alternative is an inside wall which is more central but more trouble for routing connector pipes. 8′ ceilings, moderately insulated, some large southern exposure windows but shaded by trees and overhanging eave.
It’s actually a summer home but the mini heat will be a real bonus in the spring and fall as a back up to the wood stove.
