Ductless mini-split A/C systems
I have an attic room over a carport (south Mississippi - hot in the summer) and a basement room under construction (will be very humid year round). Fujitsu or Sanyo "mini-split," ductless heat and air systems from what I've been told would be ideal for these rooms. An internet online supplier told me if I was fairly handy that with the help of his tech support people I could put the unit in myself. He did say when I was done I would have to have it inspected by a certified A/C service technician. Some of his points to ponder:

1) he recommended two separate systems (two compressors and two air handlers) for the separate rooms as opposed to a multi-zone unit of one compressor with 2 air handlers
2) he said Sanyo (he also sell other brands) is the best unit out there
3) best bang for the buck was his 24K BTU unit for about $2100
Any advice about ductless systems, brand reliability, potential problems, costs, best place to buy, etc. would be most appreciated. Thank you.

Neat - I know them both and thanks for the info. The O.S. Airport is just down the road from me. I've even rented C-172s from them several times. I'm new so I can't reply to Nathan's "welcome" IM but would someone please let him know that he keeps misspelling [you're]. Thanks. :)
