FHB Summit: Making the Most of Minisplits
Energy-modeling specialist and HVAC systems designer Jordan Goldman discusses the pros and cons of high-performance electric heat pumps and how to install systems that work well in today's well-insulated homes.
Minisplit heating and cooling systems, both ducted and ductless, are one of the most frequent topics of discussion in the Q&A section of GreenBuildingAdvisor.com. In this session from the 2019 Fine Homebuilding Summit, Jordan Goldman—a specialist in energy modeling, HVAC systems, and master of all things mechanical for Boston-based ZeroEnergy Design—takes a deep dive into minisplits, including an honest discussion of strengths and weaknesses, how to best put the technology to use, and common mistakes to avoid.
