Central air vs mini split?
I would like some opinions on central ac vs Mini splits. Building a new home approx 2600 sq ft. I am partial to hydronic heating, but would like to have the ability to have AC. I want to be cost effective while being energy efficient as well. So it goes round and round with central ac conventional duct work ......or a unico system, which people have mixed reviews on. Heat pump system with an air handler, because I am not a fan of the cassets or heads. Everyone I have talked to says that mini split is the most efficient but I still cannot use that as a primary heat source in (Maine). So now I have the added cost of baseboard,panel rads, radiant etc. So my question is if you were building a new home what would be your choice for heat and ac?
