Mini split placement question

srwinford | Posted in Plans Review on

Would someone be able to share where they think the best placement and sizes of mini splits would be for this home plan.  16 ft walls and 7/12 pitch roof.

    It's generally (but not always) true that in a well insulated/sealed building, open spaces have enough airflow to keep temperatures reasonably uniform. Doorways (open or closed) don't.

    In a heating dominated climate, low wall mounts are more efficient than up-high mounts.

    Sizing requires a Manual J and Manual S.
