Jr. Unit Heating and Cooling

In a home with central heating, a Jr. Unit would typically share the heating system with the rest of the house. Occasionally, however, a unit may need its own heat source. Some good options are listed below.

Ductless Heat Pumps, also known as mini splits, provide energy-efficient heating and cooling by moving heat. The technology is explained  in a YouTube video. One unit goes outside and the other goes inside; they are connected by thin copper tubing. The inside units come in a variety of sizes and would be mounted on the wall.    heat-pump
