I am having a house built in which I planned to heat primarily with RFH using mini-splits to supplement the heat when needed as well as providing A/C.
The GC contacted his HVAC gyb who suggested that I didn't need mini-splits for the lower level ( a walk-out basement), instead recommeded a whole house dehumidifier.
From what I've read, mini-splits can dehumidify in addition to the cooling and heating capabilities.
I'm thinking a larger capacity condensor (Fujitsu AOU48RLXFZ) and a couple of additional indoor units for the lower level would be more cost-effective than a dehumidfier. And provide much more 'conditioning' flexibility?
