Inkstainz I don't think he is talking about Liebert witch is designed for server rooms not houses.
That being said I have never liked working on the ductless types.


Very well aware was just giving an example of what is out there.

I'm afraid that you will be unhappy with the ductless units and will be wishing that you had gone ducted.

If you are seriously thinking about ductless mini splits, make sure you consider Mitsubishi. They perfected the inverter technology before most other brands out there. Just a thought.


They do make some of the better ductless units.

Mini-splits, if installed correctly could possibly be a great way to go. You will spend more money on the front end. Each room will have it's own indoor unit and you will only have one condenser located outside somewhere. Technology is great. Metro schools use these systems for classrooms. #1 thing is make sure you have a certified installer. I'm not sure how they would do in a room with a vaulted ceiling. I would probably suggest adding a ceiling fan in that room.

Mini-splits are all over Europe, South America, and Asia. I think Trane has a line of them. Mitsubishi, Daiken, and LG are probably the major players here in middle tn. If you have a floor plan, I can take a look and give you an idea of what your cost for equipment would be. When getting bids, make sure to let them know you are wanting "variable refrigerant flow" or VRF.

I have a Fujitsu in our living room up here. It cools most of the downstairs during summer and doubles as a heat pump in the winter unless lower than 20 degrees. The kitchen and living room have a pass thru - the back bedroom cools via fan in the evening blowing from the living room. Heat seems to flow without a problem by itself. We use oil or wood stove if temps go 20 or below. I love it - costs less than window units to operate and does a nice job. However two issues - replacement filters are expensive and during summer the drain pipe can clog causing the wall unit to leak water - it also gets a mold on it - so they suggest you spray the inside of the wall unit with bleach / water once a month in the summer to prevent the mold. Getting it off is nasty as there is no easy access to it. Not sure if this is an issue with Mitsubishi units.

The TN house has a central air heat pump system so I won't be needing one there but if it didn't I'd put one or two of these in.
