Can someone please tell me the pros and cons of each?
And more importantly what would you do in your house?
My wife and I are renovating a 1911 house with a boiler system. We have take out most of the plaster and we can there for do almost anything with respect to cooling. We have decieded to leave hot water rads as the heat source because I hate the blowing of a forced air system. We have also decided to cool from the top down as a result of efficencies we hope to realize because cold air is heavier than warm air. We were told 4 ductless spilts would be enough to cool our 2,000 square foot 2 story home.
The cons (so i have been told) to the ductless spilt are that because one unit will be in the hall the bedrooms will have to sleep with doors open.
The second con is the you have a white box hanging on your wall or ceiling.
The cons to a high velocity system are that they are noisier then the ductles split.
The second con is that you can not control individual rooms like the ductless system
The third con is that you can feel the blowing air when you walk under the hole.
all thoughts and opinions would be a big help.
