Post & Beam construction is very popular here in New England, but it poses some real challenges when it comes to heating and cooling. The homes often have large windows, which can lead to a lot of heat loss.  Because of all the beautiful wood in these homes, forced air systems often aren't recommended. Why? Most post & beam homes are made out of softer woods, and can be very sensitive to changes in heat and humidity. If humidity is not properly controlled, the beams can dry out and crack or split, and too much humidity can lead to mold and wood rot. As a result, making sure you have a heating and cooling system that also controls humidity, like Mitsubishi's Hyper Heat ductless systems can be a perfect solution for this type of home.
