Multiple Minisplit Heads in large room One Remote or Two?

kyeser | Posted in General Questions on

I just installed a couple Fujitsu minisplits heads in a large room.  The room is about 75 feet long so I wanted to space the heads for more even heating.  The heads run off a single condenser.  I put a single remote across the room in between the two heads.  The heads are spaced about 30 feet apart.  Is one remote the best way to control the two or should I use both remotes?

    I don't know the Fujitsu systems, but the remotes on Mitsubishi don't actually sense temperature--it's done at the head by default.

      There's an option on whether to use the internal one or the remote one for Mitsubishi. The wireless remote that comes with the unit (looks kinda like a tv remote) doesn't have a sensor. The MHK1/2 remote is wireless and has a space sensor. There are also the Kumo cloud wireless space temp/humidity sensors and some wired options too.

    That's funny because I had heard that the temperature sensing in the Fujitsus was in the remote.

    Commercially you can often slave units, but I'm not sure residentially. I would put a separate sensor in the area server by each unit, if you want to be discrete the Kumo cloud ones are fairly small.
