I have a GE PTAC in my converted garage / hobby room. Works great, but is a bit noisy for a quite area or bedroom. Similar to the systems common in hotel rooms. I travel quite a bit for my work and find many of them noisy.

I plan to put a mini-split in a master bedroom addition this summer. The LG units seem to be of good quality and price. Agree, the biggie is the noise factor - for many units specs list the air handler noise level and some have an extra quiet setting. Many of the higher SEER units will now run on 120VAC rather than 240VAC.

Read through the installation instructions - all are pretty simple to physically install. And you have the ready availability of a HVAC tech to do the final bring up of the unit so you are home free.
