Multi split with ceiling fans?
I am looking into a multisplit heat pump system for our deep energy retrofit project. We are used to leaky homes with ceiling fans in all bedrooms while sleeping. We find the moving air to be very comfortable while sleeping. In fact we noticeably miss the fans when traveling even when there is a dedicated Hvac like in a hotel room. In general, is the modern usage of the term ‘comfort’ (meaning stable temperature and humidity) consistent with our desire to feel the lightly moving air when sleeping?
In my early design of the Hvac, I have a 5 zone system with a temperature control for each of 4 bedrooms. All the bedroom units also direct air into shared areas but I wanted each sleeper to be able to control the temperature of their room. Part of the extra zoning was to avoid adding celing fans for aesthetic reasons. Will I ever be able to replicate the fresh air feel of a fan with just the split units? Should I just simplify the multisplit design and go back to using ceiling fans?
Thanks for any comments.
