So I am looking at a new house. And hot water would be a hard retrofit and might not be worth the current investment restrictions. Can one recommend a good setup for a 'Backsplit' or 'Multispilt' style home. I am going there tomorrow for full measurements so I can get started on the Heatloss so that will be done. It's a home I am looking to purchase for myself (wife and family included). The levels are all aprox 550 ft^2 each. L1)Wide open 6' below grade basement - will be a workout are and laundry and maybe half bathroom
L2) front and back entry, half bath, two rooms (office/tv probably uses)
L3) open concept kitchen, dining and living room.
L4) full bath and 3 bedrooms.
In our current home we have lg cool art mirror finish minisplit system and we are comfortable with the look of splits if it's the most practical solution. Or would a hybird system be best, ducted split for bedrooms, wall or ceiling cassette for open living area. Honestly I'm open to the most practical option. Goal being that electrical costs lower a bit from existing baseboard system and added AC for a wife with Hypothyroid so she drips sweat in the summer even in our climate where warm is a day to get excited for. hahaha
In short looking for brand recommendations and distribution setup for this stlye home. There will be enough of a reno to do most anything.
