I live in NYC and buying a business that has an old broken oil heating. I was thinking of investing in a ductless split air system to use for heating and cooling. Can I depend on this system to heat 1600 sqf. Of space or should I get any other heating system? Thanks. I was happy to learn… There are ductless systems that can handle quite a lot of space. Shoot, you can find window units that could cool a space that big; you have a huge opportunity here. That opportunity is scalability. You could install a multi-zone system that serves 3 or even four indoor units. Or if you prefer, you could install more than one outdoor unit, and each serve its own zone. In any case, when an area doesn’t need service you can turn it to a cheaper setting, or even let it drift. There are tremendous savings to be had that way, tuning the heating and cooling as needed. If you can, go see the things in operation before you buy. Some aren’t as quiet as they claim, any make no quietness claims (for good reason), and any are relatively quiet but the quality of the noise they generate makes them feel louder. So try to sample that; the noise the unit generates is the next largest influence it will have on you and your customers after how well it cools the space. Here’s a link to a supplier, and a unit I think isn’t too bad: And that’s a heat pump too, so it will do any of your heating as well. If heating is more an issue for you than cooling (New York gets cold, I know), then compare HSPF ratings between models. Higher numbers are better.
