Which minisplit to get?
I’m new to this site and have been reading a lot of info on minisplits. Could anyone tell me which size Mitsubishi FHxxNA series or Fujitsu model I should get for my house: a 24,000 sf split-level home in Zone 7. The cold weather gets to -30F or so in Dec. and Jan., so it would need to be the better heat-efficient one.
I have a Pacific Energy wood stove; here is the TECHNICAL INFORMATION for the wood stove:
Heat Output Cord Wood (BTU): 72,000 BTU
Heat Output EPA (BTU): 36,600 BTU
Emissions: 3.4 gm/hr
Firebox Size: 2.1 cu.ft.
Log Size (recommended): 18 in.
Log Size (max.): 18 in.
Burn Time (max.): 8 hrs.
In the -30F temps, it works, but burns a lot of wood per hour.
So with that said, could anyone help me on choosing the right minisplit unit for my application?
Just don’t want to get it too small or too big. I would just use the wood stove when it would be extremely cold.
Thanks for your help in advance.
