Ductless Minisplit question


overcooled IMO is not possible as it will cycle on the thermostat anyway. some extra capacity is a good idea and a high quality minisplit is very quiet anyway. unlike dehumidifying a whole house just doing one room I doubt humidity removal is his major concern. you can install it yourself but unless you have very good mech skills it is not as easy as it seems or people say. the freon level needs to be checked after install and if you don't have ALL the proper gauges and install tools it would be better to get a \pro to do it. The quietest best unit IMO is a Fujitsu but they are expensive. Very well built and quiet etc. Generally the only DIY units are the cheaper clone brands so if you want the quietest that may your best bet. The reason I say quietest is sound is a major issue in a theater room so you may want to research the higher quality/priced units. Mitsubishi is also very good.

Simplest installation would be on an interior exterior wall. I was also thinking 12,000 btu when reading your original post. Seeing how its a theater room. Yes they are sweet. Whisper quiet. Work off hand held remote control.

Ductless Minisplit question


So i've been wracking my brain trying to figure out how to best keep my air sealed theater room cycling fresh air and be able to somewhat control the temp of the room without getting way too expensive. I was going to build a deadvent for the return in the theater room and leave the supply from the furnace as is and see how it handles the equipment and people in the room. But then someone asked me if I have aother return for the basement, which I do not and that could be a problem as far as cycling air when the theater room is in use.

I took a couple pictures of the return trunks for my furnace and are these possible closed off vents that used to be, or could be made in to a return?
