One or two mini-splits for small rooms
Need help. A small room, 14′ by 25.5′, that had been added on to the garage side of the house, is being remodeled to provide a living space and sleeping space for me. Room is divided by a 9′ long wall, giving 14 by 14 to living space, a walkway/hall that will turn left into another room (previously a mudroom, now a walkway to main house and a powder room.
Sleeping area is pretty much just a 9′ by 11′ with space next to the hall for closet.
I don’t want a mini-split in the bedroom. I am sensitive to noise and cold (arthritis and Fibromyalgia). Using baseboard radiators for heat. Contractor is calling for 2 inside and 2 outside units for a/c – 9000 and 12000 BTU. That sounds like freezing me. I will not be able to handle all that noise nor cold air. Plus the owner’s a/c is on the back wall of what will be the bedroom. So wondering if I put the one unit on the garage side of the room that is kiddy corner across from the bedroom, would that work. Imagine would have to run pipes in the ceiling and down; would that effect draining? I would not use a/c if I didn’t have Asthma and laminate flooring. I also have medical conditions that make me feel cold most of the time. Thank you.
