Minisplit recommendations for small California casita?
I’m building a new 500 sq. ft. casita in Northern California (Sacramento). Very well insulated (R31 walls, R-56 roof). Summer cooling is needed, and some winter heat, but I’m also installing sealed, vented gas fireplace (more for aesthetics). I am considering a small 3/4 ton (9,000 Btu/h) ductless minisplit, and was wondering if there were any recommendations for a unit or system for such a space. I was looking at a Mitsubishi unit.
Evenings usually cool down in the Summer, and I have a lot of thermal mass, but feel cooling would still be needed for hot days. Also considering a small, natural gas, exterior tankless water heater, and would appreciate recommendations for that as well. 1-2 max occupants.
