One Multi-head Minisplit vs. Two Separate Units
We’re looking to build a cottage in western NH. We’re targeting about the minimum current insulation code (R30 for shed roof, etc). It is a one bedroom 875sf design, but we plan to add a walkout basement for a second bedroom. Given that the July average temps are 82 F day/ 56F night, I am thinking to just put one 12K minisplit head in the bedroom upstairs and one 12k somewhere downstairs (which will be partially below grade). The glazing will mostly face to the East and the lot is pretty well wooded. What are the pros/cons to having one multi-head mini split versus two separate units?
