Do mini split systems come cooling only
I have just started researching air conditioning systems and have many many questions.
A little background. We live in the northeast and our home is about 75 years old. It's a center hall colonial that is heated by lot water radiators. In the summer we install window cooling units. Since we're getting older we want to minimize the amount of labor that takes.
I just got one estimate on installing a multi zone system which would cool the living room, kitchen, master bedroom and third floor refinished attic bedroom. He told me that two units needed to be installed outside. One 4 zone unit and one 1 zone unit. But the units (Mitsubishi are cooling/heating units when all I really wanted was the cooling part.
So, I guess I need to know what my options are. Can I do cooling only? Are there advantages to having heat also? Would be the price difference between the two be substantial?
As you can tell, I'm a novice at this so any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
