Well, my remodel plans have expanded to include an out building for storage, a place for the dog when it is too cold/hot, maybe eventually a mother-in-law suite. We are thinking maybe 25' x 14', (350 sq ft.), slab on grade, well insulated, hot/humid climate. Probably one large room with a small shower/toilet room as well. We have a lot of mini splits at work, and a city multi as well, and these things work nice! All Mitsubishi at this time. I know a few brand names but the only one I am familiar with is the Mitsubishi. How would you all rate the brands- say from value, to mid quality, to high end? And if anyone thinks there is a less expensive option than a mini split let me know.
