I pretty much decided what I want for my house is a mini-split AC. It's small, the upper floor is about 650 sq ft., and I would have the mini-split on the upper floor.
What are good brands to look at?
I want something that is good for dehumidifying, i.e. you can run it overnight and it will keep on dehumidifying even if the house gets cool.
Also it has to be very quiet.
An inverter compressor is probably important. I have a small house and I might easily hear compressor noise, wherever the external unit is. So if the compressor runs more slowly when dehumidifying this should help with noise.
Any particular brands and models you'd recommend? A lot of the heating contractors around here install Mitsubishi mini-splits.
I suppose there's less concern about sizing when it has inverter technology?
