Mini-Split System to replace boiler/swamp cooler? 07 Sep 2017 10:18 #43873

I'm in North Iowa and the new owner of a single screen theatre. The boiler will not make it another year and have received multiple bids to replace boiler but all seem like overkill. One bid I received recommended replacing all my HVAC needs with multiple mini-split systems. I'm open to the idea but curious if anyone else has attempted..results? Open to any commentary, even if anecdotal.

Thanks!

We've just installed minisplits in 3 auditoriums. Wonderful so far. We still cycle of duct system to mix in some outside air and freshen up the rooms, but the minisplits are quiet and did a great job cooling the last month.

our STEAM boiler just blew up. We are replacing it. We plan to add mini split in the future. The problem is that when it gets really cold they do not make enough heat so we are looking at the boiler as the base. The STEAM boiler, for 6000 square feet, does not do COOLING. So mini-splits are great.

Where are you located? I'm in Iowa (north) and I'm about to sign for mini-splits only....

not sure if you were asking me... Colonial Theatre Belfast Maine... but we have a pretty complex three screen and three levels of office/ lobby/ lower lobby.
