Heat Pump-Mini Spilt Ductless- AC/Heat/Dehumidify Discussion
It?s getting close to that time of year when we all start thinking about turning on the heat.
I thought I?d start a new thread on these heat pumps for those of us that just purchased such systems in the last number of months.
I live in Nova Scotia and purchased a Fujitsu's multi-zone mini-split heat pump system - 24000 btu, 16.5 seer. I wanted a back up heating system in my basement rec room. I have a single zone oil hot air system in my small bungalow.
I was delighted with the air conditioning and more importantly the dehumidifying this summer.
Now that cooler weather is hitting I?m curious about how it will perform on heating mode.
There are several people around town that have the same unit that tell me they use it as their primary system all thru the winter with major savings on their oil bill. Although I did not buy the unit as a primary heating source I?ll be happy if it does save on my oil bill.
So I wanted to open up this thread for discussion points on various topics like;
Optimal settings for the remote for sleeping time (I?m told modest temp changes are best ?less than 3 degree changes)
I discovered I can?t have one unit on dehumidify and another on heat.
Does everyone conform to the adage ? ?set it and leave it ? or do you modify the temp at night to save electricity ?
Sorry for the long post.
I hope it stimulates other heat Pumps owners to post their comments, questions and success stories.
