Mini splits AC only or Heating too?
We have no central air and the summers are brutal. We can't find a window unit capable of cooling the entire first floor which is an open layout; so we decided to install a mini-slip air conditioner of 24,000 btu to solve the issue. Our bedrooms upstairs have window ACs. When consulting with the technician he suggested I install a mini slip that also offers heating. We do have central heating, so I don't understand what the benefit would be to have an additional heating unit just for the first floor. Can anyone advice or offer some insights? Should I spend the extra money to include heating as well? Will it save me any money or provide any extra comfort? Thanks!!!
