Single Head Minisplits / Air Circulation / Insurance – at odds?
There seems to be a consensus on this forum that single head (unducted) minisplits are the preferable way to heat and cool in many situations. When posters raise concerns about all the heating/cooling coming from a single source, the suggestion is often given to leave the doors open.
I was surprised last week to get a letter from my insurance company that included a request that the insureds make a pledge to “Close bedroom doors at night.” because a closed door delays the spread of fire and gives time to escape. The letter includes a note that the insurer reviewed new safety products showcased a this years CES (Consumer Electronics Show) including “products in development that will even close doors for you.”
Does anyone know what those products are and if they address moving conditioned air between rooms?
