The mini-split air conditioner offers a superior form of cooling with a much lower energy consumption than a traditional central unit. With these systems, you simply mount the indoor unit high on the wall in the room or area you wish to cool, and through a 3'' hole connect it to the outdoor unit with copper pipes and wires. The installation process is a breeze when compared to any central ducted system. This type of non ducted unit allows you to accurately cool a room without effecting the temperature of rooms that may not be occupied at the time.
The mini-split heat pump is a system that provides both heating and cooling. This is possible by using a reversing solenoid, which allows freon to run in reverse. A typical a cooling only system, when in operation, sends cooled freon to the indoor evaporator. This process results in warmed freon being sent back to the outdoor unit. A heat pump simply reverses this process, sending heated freon to the indoor evaporator, resulting in a nice warm air that is not dry like with gas heat. With this type of system, you get all the benefits of superior cooling along with reliable heating on colder days. We offer the newest hyper heat systems that operate down to -22f, most older systems would only heat down to 32f.
Multi Zone mini split systems are able add multiple indoor evaporators to different rooms, which all connect to one outdoor compressor. These systems are very popular, as they only require one outdoor power source which powers all the indoor units and outdoor unit. We offer systems that can heat and cool 2 zone, 3 zone, 4 zone, 5 zone, 6 zone, 7 zone, 8 zone and 9 zones/rooms. Zoned systems are popular for homes and offices that may have unoccupied spaces, allowing you to focus only on the rooms that have people/clients in them. When you are in need of a system to do 7 zones, you may be better off getting a 5 zone and a 2 zone when it comes down to getting a more affordable price. Follow this same protocol when pricing out 8 zone and 9 zoned systems.
Ceiling cassette mini split units are wonderful, if you have the space to install them. Typically they are designed to be installed into a drop ceiling. Most sizes from 9000 btu to 18000 btu have an indoor unit that is around 22.5'' x 22.5'', which is perfect for a drop ceiling- but not so much for most residential applications as space in between rafters may not be adequate. These cassette units have 360 degree area of coverage, so you would want to install them in the center of the room for best results. These systems have built in condensate pumps, allowing condensation to be pumped to a drain or to the exterior of the home or office. Once installed, you only see the grill on the ceiling.
Slim ducted mini split units are basically hidden or concealed air handlers, which ducts are ran into the rooms you wish to heat and cool. This unit also has a return, which requires a register with a filter. You would want to be sure to put the return in an area that would accumulate hot air, and be careful not to place ducts close to the return. These units also have built in condensate pumps, allowing the system to pump the condensation outside. With these systems, they allow many different features not typically found on wall mounts or cassettes. For instance, they have wall mounted thermostats which allow you to set 7 day schedules and allows automatic static pressure settings. With the automatic static pressure setting, the system will set itsself to the best pressure needed for the ducts you have installed. They also have the ability to connect exhaust fans, which allows fresh air from outside. You can also use dampers in case you want to use one air handler for multiple rooms.
Floor ceiling mount mini split systems are very versatile. Smaller 9000 btu and 12000 btu units are primarily refered to as "floor console", which can only be mounted on the floor against the wall. Larger units like 18000 btu and 24000 btu can be mounted like the consoles, on the floor or on the ceiling. They are flush mounted to the ceiling, and are very visible. These units have very good air flow, and are reccomended for allot of commercial applications like grow rooms, server rooms, warehouses and more. The larger units have a built in condensate pump, allowing condensation to be sent outdoors. Typically operated by a remote control, as it may be difficult running a thermostat in a ceiling application.
Our mini split accessories include copper linesets, lineset covers, wires, outdoor mounting brackets, plastic pads, concrete pads, r410a adapters, Combi and Gobi II condensate pumps, and smart wifi thermostats like Cielo Breez and Pebble.
If you are wondering what mini split btu size you will need for that garage, shed, attic, basement, sunroom or room addition- we are happy to help you. Often it is much less expensive to simply add one of these systems as opposed to upgrading your existing central unit. Maybe you have an indoor garden (grow room), server room or workshop that may have lights and equipment that produces heat- this can be tough for you to size a system properly. We can share our knowledge to assist you in choosing the right product for your home improvement project.
Maybe you own and operate a motel or hotel, which has an incredibly high power bill. If you switch over from those inefficient PTAC units, you can save up to 50% or more on your utility bill. The units we offer are not only more efficient, but also super quiet when compared to P-Tac Systems. Your customers will be more comfortable, and sleep much better in the environment you provide for them. This will make them want to come back to your establishment over and over again. We have sold to major hotels like the Sheraton Resort Hotels, Hilton, Plaza Beach Resorts, and that's just to name a few.
We have customers that sell tiny houses, some convert containers and some stick build them. We have seen tractor trailor's convert over to a living space with one of our systems. They all love the units we sell, reporting they are easy to install, and very effective on heating and cooling their space. When they started providing mini units in their tiny homes, instead of window or portable units, they noticed their customers were willing to pay more since they are energy efficient and eco friendly.
Question: Why is this mini split system more efficient than a central system?
Answer: The easiest answer is the fact that you loose 30% of your energy cost in your ducts. Having no ducts saves you at least 30% and we haven't begun to consider electrical consumption yet. If we factor in energy consumption you can save 50-60%. Ill explain why, when you compare a 2 ton central system to a 2 ton (24000 btu) duct-less system. First off, your central system requires (two) 220v disconnects at 30 amps each. Our mini split air conditioning system only needs one 220v disconnect. Secondly a central system will draw 20 amps inside and 20-30 amps outside while running meanwhile each component is drawing about 2000 watts each (4000+ watts total). Where as mini split systems will only use 10-11 total amps while running and only use 2000-2500 watts. A considerable difference. Our customers have reported to us a 50% year round savings off their normal energy cost after they switched to strictly non-ducted system.
Question: What size mini split system is right for me?
Answer 1: What BTU is Needed for The Area
100-400 Sq Feet a 9,000 Btu 3/4 Ton mini split is recommended.
400-500 Sq Feet a 12,000 Btu 1 Ton mini split is recommended.
500-800 Sq Feet a 18,000 Btu 1.5 Ton mini split is recommended.
800-1200 Sq Feet a 24,000 Btu 2 Ton mini split is recommended.
1200-1500 Sq Feet a 30,000 Btu 2.5 Ton mini split is recommended.
1500-1800 Sq Feet a 36,000 Btu 3 Ton mini split is recommended.
1800-2000 Sq Feet a 48,000 Btu 4 Ton mini split is recommended.
2000 Sq Feet and up a 60,000 Btu 5 Ton mini split is recommended.
Answer 2: Now what length copper line set do you need?
How far apart do you plan to mount the inside unit away from the outside unit?
Depending on this answer you can choose a mini split system that has 12', 15', 25', or 50'. Anything larger than that you would need your contractor to just add on what you need they sell most of the soft copper you need at your local super store, its often cheaper if they provide it at cost rather than buying it at full retail. Most mini split systems are pre-charged for 25', so any lines longer than that, more freon will need to be added.
Answer 3: Now the most important! What is your budget?
Since we carry so many different brands you can pick and choose a mini split system that is in your price range. Just be sure to factor in the above two variables when making your choice. Daikin prices tend to be on the higher side.
Question: What is a mini split system?
Answer: These types of systems separate the compressor from the air handler, making a more efficient and much more quiet of a system. Just like a central, the compressor will sit outside and the air handler will be mounted inside. They will connect together with copper lines and send freon through those lines to one another. These systems are much more smaller than a normal central system. For instance the air-handler is a small wall mounted system that looks very Hi Tech when mounted to your wall (see the product pictures for example).
Question: How much should I expect to pay a contractor to install one of these mini split systems?
Answer: This will vary on the contractor your choose, for example : If you choose a contractor who has 12 trucks, and crews, with allot of overhead, his prices will be much higher and most of the time and they will not want to install a system that you buy from someone else, as they will want to make as much money as they can by selling you the product at a high mark up. In our experience you can find local contractor who would love to have your business by searching on sites like craigslist, the contractors we speak to often charge $50-100 per hour. If you have a simple install it could take them 2-4 hours for a small system. Or they may want to charge a flat rate like $500, but again you can choose who ever you feel the most comfortable with in pricing and service. If you can try to get them to provide a labor warranty for at least the same amount of time your parts warranty. Our customers have reported incredibly high costs at Home Depot and Lowes since they have now come into the market selling these units.
Question: How long does it take when I order a mini split?
Answer: Normally 1-2 days to process your order. Once on a truck it will take 2-5 days via freight for it to reach you (Depending on the system you order, they come from different warehouses around the USA). If you order a system that is close to you it will be delivered much faster. Feel free to reach out to us before ordering, and we can estimate a little better once you give us your location and the system you are interested in.
Question: Is one mini split brand better than another brand?
Answer: No, on our website most of our systems are actually made by the same factories with the same quality parts. The quality and warranties are all similar. Some people want to buy systems with a largely known brand like Mitsubishi, Daikin, Carrier, Goodman and Friedrich, others are more interested in saving money by buying brands like Air-Con, Chigo, Cooper Hunter, and Midea as the quality is the same but they are more affordable since the brand doesn't spend millions on advertising.
Question: If I buy these mini split units online will I still have a factory warranty.
Answer: With the brands we carry, yes. However with York, Hitachi, Samsung, Mirage, LG, Mitsubishi, Carrier, Trane, Toshiba, Sanyo, Lennox, and Panasonic you have to purchase and have the system installed by their approved contractors- you will not get a factory warranty with their products if you order online. (All Our systems must be installed by a Licensed HVAC contractor in order to keep the factory warranty and to ensure the unit will operate properly).
A mini split system consist of an indoor unit, containing evaporator coil and blower and an outdoor unit containing a brand name compressor like GMCC Toshiba, Hitachi, Panasonic, Sanyo, Daikin, Mitsubishi, Carrier, etc. A copper pipe, which transfers the refrigerant and links the outdoor and indoor units together. This technology has numerous possibilities. They are perfect for home, business, warehouse, garage, sunroom, hotel, motel, mobile homes that do not have a central unit, and do not want to settle for the noise, in-security and in-efficiency of window, wall & P-tac systems.
If you struggle with installing and removing window units every summer and complain about losing the view out of your windows, or the convenience of opening them to fresh air, you are not alone in thinking there must be a better way. In fact, there is, it's called a mini split system. This technology can be used for heating or cooling and is especially well-suited to homes and businesses built without central systems. It is used increasingly in home improvement projects where a porch is enclosed or an attic or garage is converted to bedrooms.
Every building and every situation presents its own problems with climate control. Architects and engineers have realized this for years and they have struggled to adapt technology to modern living demands. Mini split systems now make the job much easier. These systems use no duct work or ducted distribution. Because of that, there are few places where these systems cannot be installed. In addition to homes, the mini split systems have been placed in thousands of offices, shops, motels and hotels, schools and universities, computer server rooms, banks, hospitals, nursing homes and labs.

People often wonder if mini split will be the system for their needs. If you have any room or building that could use some heating or cooling, a mini split system will work for you. We even have customers with tractor trailers, rv's, shipping containers, mobile homes, mobile offices, and tiny homes- literally any application. If you currently do not have any conditioning, or if you have a central system that does not cool well, adding a mini split system as a supplement provides better comfort than a window or wall unit. It is more quiet, more efficient and has more cooling capacity.
Instead of using window or wall units, which block windows and can present a security risk, the refrigerant lines and wiring come indoors through a three-inch hole in the wall. When properly positioned, the mini split system can easily cool an entire house. Unlike central systems, an outdoor unit is small and quiet. A typical indoor unit is only 32 inches by 11 inches by 7 inches deep and weighs about 18 lbs.
Models with built-in filters are often more effective than a central filter for removing larger allergen particles. These mini split systems are often used for cooling and heating in homes with hot water radiant (no hot duct work). Mini split can offer efficient heating in the winter too. These high wall mounted units are called "mini split" because they are similar to a regular ducted central, but on a much smaller scale and doesn't need the duct work. The compressor is located outdoors and a super quiet indoor evaporator is mounted high on a wall or ceiling. In addition to the comfort and quiet operation, using a mini split unit (with or without central) can save you money.
These systems allow you to cool only certain areas of your house during certain times, which results in big savings on your electric bills. For winter, you can choose a heat model, with or without backup electric heat. If you hate that first shot of chilly when the blower starts, select a model with a pre heat function, most mini split units have this feature built in.
For convenience and comfort, models have remote controls that regulate everything from temperature, louver directions, on/off times, etc. If your area has high humidity, all models have a "dry" mode setting which allows rapid independent dehumidification. This adjusts the flow for comfortable, low humidity level. Mini split HVAC systems have many functions. These are for all residential, multi-residential, and commercial applications. Residential is where these systems see the most actions. They have units both inside and outside of the building, the inside unit essentially controls the indoor temperature, while the outside compressor does most of the hard work. They are joined by a group of wires and copper and drain tubes to get the power, freon and moisture condensation to and from the inside and outside of the house or office.
In older homes, normally these systems are used because the degree of engineering that would probably be vital on the house would either be too much and could ruin the building structurally, or it could just be too high priced. Duct work and the installation concerned with it is quiet expensive and will require a qualified company to be involved, who will have to run ducts in your home, which unfortunately may possibly take a while and cost allot. With a mini split system it will be easier for you to control each room in your house, which is very popular to people who are interested in saving money by not cooling unoccupied rooms of their home.
For someone who is leasing or renting out their duplex or multi home, a mini split system is easy to install and much more popular with their tenants. Their tenants can now set their temps to their own personal liking and often makes them a more happy tenant. Some people who own and rent out duplexes often purchase multi zone mini split systems which allows them to heat and cool multiple rooms and apartments with only using one outside compressor. This saves everyone on energy consumption and power supplies.
Private buildings, churches, and offices are becoming more and more interested in these systems as they are easy to put in single offices. This makes its much less expensive to control the climate in these large building and is often much more affordable as opposed to purchasing 5 or 10 ton systems when you really only use 3 offices inside of the building. Mini split systems might be made use of in any way, for personal, multi family, and private use. Perhaps you are in the market for replacement cooling methods, please take a look at into the mini split systems we offer.
Right now there are many choices on heating and cooling products, but none of them are as popular as the systems we offer. When compared to window, central, portable, or wall units the mini split systems dominate in efficiency. Which is why they have been used around the world for decades and are increasingly becoming more and more popular every day! Join the rest of the world and go with a mini split system today!
The concept of cooling has been around for 70 years, and they not only cool the area but they dehumidify also. The temp may be ok, but if the humidity is high you will still feel hotter than normal. High humidity caused allot of respiratory problems to older and younger people. If you are working in high humidity your job can seem harder than normal. In addition to cooling and dehumidifying these systems act as filter for the indoor air quality, they will increase your air quality and create a safer environment for you and your family. Some models are equipped with gold plated indoor coils, which are beneficial when it come to killing mold and bacteria.
The mini split systems we offer are a better alternative than using portable, window, or wall units. They will save you 30-50% energy off of your normal energy bill if you use those other systems in your house now. Smaller homes are especially in need of energy savings, instead of filling up your windows with systems you can now sleep easy with a permanent install that doesn't take up your window space. These systems are more similar to what you see in a hotel or motel, the main difference is the compressor is separate from the blower creating a near silent operation for you to enjoy.
Maintaining the temp in your house is an important thing in these times. The systems we provide not only keep the humidity down, but they maintain the temp and humidity allot better than any window, wall, or Ptac system. With the mini split systems we offer you will see an increase in a coziness, and a decrease in energy consumption. Overall you will be a more happy family, when everyone is comfortable.
Mini split systems are silent while running, which is a superb benefit if you have little children, difficulties sleeping, live close to neighbors, or love the calmness you come to feel like you have earned. These systems might also do "follow me" control which is great for the reason that it usually means you do not have to be heating or cooling the entire room, only the area you are spending time in- by placing the remote near you and activating the follow me feature. There is no reason to heat and cool the entire house if you are only in one room, and this is one of the only style of system that allows you to do this efficiently.
It is also fairly practical, as it allows you to regulate the system on one outdoor unit for up to five areas of your home, normally sometimes allowing for you to do so by use of a remote control which is allot easier to use. With zoned cooling and heating, this style of system is likely to help you save you a great deal of money on your residence or office heating bill for the reason that you will not be using too much electricity.
Cost on mini split systems, depending on the brand, can cost more or less than doing a central system in your home, just know that a mini split will pay for itself over time, normally within the first year. While these systems are ideal for some homes, it is important to look into all the solutions and talk to a qualified hvac contractor before making this very important final decision. Since these mini split systems have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with duct work of central forced systems.
Duct loss can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for any given space, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space such as an attic. In comparison to other add-on systems, these mini split systems offer more flexibility in interior design options. The indoor air handlers can be suspended from a ceiling, mounted flush into a drop ceiling, or hung on a wall. Floor standing models are also available. Most indoor units have profiles of about seven inches deep and usually come with sleek, high tech-looking jackets. They also have a remote control to make it easier to turn the system on and off when it positioned high on a wall or suspended from a ceiling.
These mini split systems can also help to keep your home or office safer since there is only a small hole in the wall. Through-the-wall and window mounted unit can provide an easy entrance for intruders. Expect to pay less for Chigo, Midea, Cooper Hunter, Air-Con, OLMO, YMGI, Goodman and Mr. Whisper than other brands. Contractors say they are cheaper to buy. Installation costs may also be lower because contractors say that Chigo is less selective about its authorized installers than other manufacturers. If you buy one of the Chigo brands, some critics indicate that you are more likely to get high quality installation if you choose a dealer that also sells a more expensive brands like Daikin.
If you live in a development where multiple houses have the same floor plan, your neighbors may be the most accurate guide to good prices. Make sure bids include all costs, including any government fees (such as permits) and disposal of the old system. Manufacturers themselves don't reveal estimated installed costs. Experts agree that prices vary by region, and possibly even demand. Experts estimate that within a product line of otherwise identical central units, the price difference between a 15 SEER model and a 20 SEER model is about $500. Product quality may not have a lot to do with prices.
HVAC contractors with 50 years experience, say "As far as quality and brand go many expensive big name brands are the same as an economical cheap priced systems, even made on the same assembly line." That doesn't mean you receive no benefit for paying more. We cover a number of those benefits below. A higher price may also net a better warranty. Most central systems have ten year limited warranties on the compressor and five year limited warranties on all other parts. Judging from many owner posts in forums, manufacturers do not cover labor costs in their prices. Contractors usually offer one year warranties on the installation. Some offer lifetime warranties as a marketing tool.
How are these mini split systems different than central air? The amount of cold entering the room can he controlled by a thermostat or it can be regulated by an infrared remote control, like a TV remote. One room or one area of a building can maintain a different temperature from another room or area in the same building. In a central system, refrigerant is pumped from the outdoor condenser coil indoors to a single indoor coil from which cooled air is distributed to each room through a system of ducts. In many houses and businesses, the amount of cold in one room cannot be regulated without changing the temperature of every room in the building. This technology can be used for heating or cooling and is especially well suited to homes and businesses built without central systems. It is used increasingly in improvement projects where a porch is enclosed or an attic is converted to bedrooms. Every building and every situation presents its own problems with climate control.
Architects and engineers have realized this for years and they have struggled to adapt technology to modern living and working demands. These mini split systems now make the job much easier. HVAC systems are not normally sold directly to consumers. They must be installed by licensed contractors. Pricing is a package deal, which includes the labor, permits and whatever else is needed for your installation. Prices vary radically, depending on both the quality (or efficiency) of the unit and how much labor is needed. Installation and related costs are usually going to cost more than the system itself.
It is among the most essential appliances used in homes and offices. These systems control the temperature effectively to a comfortable level and are used in most of the countries around the world. It is considered essential in countries with hotter climates and are used for both domestic and commercial purposes. There are different types. Though all of these serve the same purpose of cooling, some of the systems are more efficient and useful compared to the others. The use of it is known to accelerate the amount of electricity consumed but nevertheless, it is widely used by the majority of residences. In fact survival is difficult in countries with hotter climates without the use of these mini split systems.
