Multisplit temperature control per zone
I am considering a multisplit heatpump system for our 3000 s.f. two-story renovation located in Chicago, Zone 5. I like the idea of a multisplit system for its high efficiency and zone control. I would like to provide 1 unit per bedroom using ducted interior units that supply conditioned air to each bedroom.
Because even the smallest interior units will be overkill for these 150-200 s.f. bedrooms, I plan on ducting some of the air from each unit into common spaces while keeping the temperature control unit in the bedroom. I was told that in high performance (near passive) houses like this, i can’t really control the temperature in each bedroom like this. I find this a little hard to believe. If the unit is targeting a certain temperature in each zone, why can’t I get this level of temperature control?
Does anybody have real life experience with a solution like this?
