Opinion on Mitsubishi MLZ ceiling cassette series
I am planning to build a new house in Indianapolis, IN (Climate zone 5) and would like your opinions on using the Mitsubishi MLZ ductless mini-split series for heating and cooling.
My design consists of a 20’x60′ rectangle with the kitchen, dining, and living room as one long linear room with a mud room and powder room on the other side of the staircase, 10′ high ceilings. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, a full bath, and a master suite with bathroom, 8′ high ceilings. There is also a 12’x26′ wing with an office, bedroom, and a full bath, 10′ ceilings, connected by an 8’x6′ gallery.
I am shooting for a wall assembly around the R30 range. Do you think the MLZ mini-split series is a good choice for this project or do you think another HVAC system would work better?
P.S. Do you need an HRV with a mini-split system or just exhaust fans?
