So, remember this little guy? After a long and drawn-out battle with the landlady this summer she finally splashed out on this tiny split (without checking the room dimensions), which turned out to be a bit small for the job. But it did end up cooling the room, which is more than I can say for the heating option. Had it on for an hour this morning and … nada.
My question is this. I had to stop using the central A/C because it began leaking water through the kitchen ceiling, which the technician said was due to the compressor being low on gas. The problem was that the unit is so old that the gas it uses is no longer produced. Hence… the new split. But would it be safe to still use the central unit for heating? I’m assuming they are two completely different functions, and the heating doesn’t rely on gas, so… what do you think?
