Will A Mini-Split System Work Here?
I'd like to cool (no heat needed) a sunroom and a workshop that are not cooled by my central heat pump.
On the house diagram, the 10'x20' sunroom is at the lower left corner, and the 12'x19' workshop is at the upper right corner.
Installing window units in those rooms will require the usual costs for carpentry and window removal, plus the cost of adding electricity in the sunroom, plus the cost for two window units. I'm guessing a total of $800 or more.
Even though a Mini-Split would cost more, I'm wondering if it might be a more efficient installation for cooling those two separate areas.
My heat pump is located near the left corner of the back of the house. The Mini-Split condenser could be located there too, putting it about 30' from the sunroom and 25' from the workshop. The air handlers could be centered on the right wall of the sunroom, and on the back wall of the workshop.
Could this work?
