Mitsubishi Mini Splits
What is a Mini Split Technology?
For many years ductless air-conditioning systems have been the quiet solution for cooling and heating problems around the world. A Mini Split a/c system has three main components: an indoor air handling unit, an outdoor condensing unit and a remote controller. These units are easily connected by refrigerant lines running through a small three-inch opening in the wall or ceiling. The outdoor unit cycles the refrigerant through the lines to and from the indoor unit, where the air is conditioned and distributed into the space. Installation is as simple as mounting the indoor and outdoor units, connecting the refrigerant lines, and making a few electrical connections. An easy installation for your contractor means you’ll be enjoying the comfort of your Mini Split faster.
For the Home:
You don't need ductwork or a window space. The sleek wall-mounted indoor unit mounts discreetly high on the wall. The outdoor unit is slim and requires minimal ground space or service clearance. Great for garages!
For the Office:
Mini Splits are the perfect solution for those offices and zones within your commercial establishment that are never the right temperature.
“It’s not the heat — it’s the humidity.” Today's homes require effective humidity control more than ever before. Equipped with super efficient central air-conditioning systems, near-impermeable vapor barriers and improved insulation, many new homes suffer from excess moisture problems.
Air conditioning alone can't satisfy your home's humidity requirements. Your air conditioning system is designed to control temperature, not humidity, and only removes humidity as a byproduct of cooling. During the spring and fall seasons when it’s still cool outside but damp inside, your air conditioning isn’t running and your house is uncomfortable — you need an whole-home dehumidifier.
A whole-house dehumidifier installs as part of your home’s central heating and cooling system, with a rated capacity of 90 pints per day. The dehumidifier measures the condition of your home’s air to decide when to run. An integrated air cycling feature will activate the HVAC blower to cycle air throughout the house to balance conditions. The dehumidifier has an optional ventilation damper that can mix fresh outside air into the process. A whole-house dehumidifier works equally well in new or existing homes, and is truly the complete solution for your home’s excess indoor humidity problems.
Whole-House vs. Portables
Excess humidity doesn’t just exist in one room of your house, so why treat the problem in just one room or area? Portable dehumidifiers only operate in a limited area, not your entire home. They invade your living space and often require buckets to collect water that must be emptied once or multiple times a day. When choosing between a portable unit or whole-house dehumidification system —the choice is simple.
Whole-home dehumidifiers are located out-of-sight and out of your way with quiet operation, hassle-free maintenance and up to 4 times more energy efficiency than the leading portable dehumidifier! The most efficient and safe way to rid your home of excess humidity is the whole-home dehumidifier.
“Elevated relative humidity at a surface—70 percent or higher—can lead to problems with mold, corrosion, decay and other moisture related deterioration... An elevated relative humidity in carpet and within fabrics can lead to dust mite infestation and mildew (mildew is mold growing on fabrics).”
Excess indoor humidity provides the perfect breeding ground for mold, mildew, dust mites, bacteria and more. An whole-house dehumidifier combats these nasty home invaders, which are linked to asthma, allergies and other serious respiratory problems.
Few things impact your home’s comfort more than excess indoor humidity. When you turn up your air conditioner to try and get rid of indoor stickiness, you’re really just making your home uncomfortably cool. A dehumidifier allows you to wipe out that clammy feeling and say goodbye to musty odors. Plus optional built-in ventilation allows you to bring in conditioned, fresh outside air - ensuring your home remains properly ventilated.
Excess indoor humidity allows mold and mildew to thrive—ruining carpets, draperies, furniture and even clothing. It also can cause condensation build-up on windows, destroying their finishes and structural integrity. An whole-house dehumidifier helps protect your home and its contents by removing unnecessary moisture from your home’s air whenever it rises to an inappropriate and harmful level.
Many homeowners turn up their air conditioning to get rid of the stickiness or clammy-feeling caused by high indoor humidity. An whole-house dehumidifier eliminates the need to over-cool, allowing for a higher thermostat setting for the same comfort level. And because it is more energy efficient than portable dehumidifiers, it uses less energy for the same amount of moisture removed.
Providing year-round performance for home comfort, heat pumps are a great solution for your home comfort system. That’s because they work to provide both heating and cooling. Whether it’s the hottest day of the summer, or the coldest day of winter, heat pumps work day in and day out to keep your family in premium comfort.
Year-round, energy-efficient indoor comfort for moderate climates. A central heat pump helps maintain comfortable temperatures inside your home and reduces humidity levels year-round. Homes located in regions with severely cold temperatures may either require supplemental heating or be better served with an air conditioner/furnace combination.
A furnace works to keep a home warm in the winter and plays a critical part in the operation of an air conditioning system. Furnaces produce heat through the combustion of natural gas in the furnace's burner. The heat produced from this process then passes through a heat exchanger. Air from your home's return air ducts is blown over the heat exchanger, thus warming the air. The furnace's blower then blows the warmed air into the ductwork, which carries and disperses the warmed air throughout the home. During warmer months, the blower inside a furnace continues to circulate return air throughout the home--only this time, the return air has been cooled by being blown over the indoor coil portion of the home's split-system air conditioning system. The condensing coil is typically installed on top of the furnace.
Today's air conditioners provide more comfort and efficiency than ever. Whatever size your home, whenever you need cool, comfortable, cleaner air, we're dedicated to providing the very best investment you can make for your family. What does that mean for you and your family? It means you’ll enjoy complete comfort on the hottest days of the year and lower your cooling costs at the same time.
Cool Your Home With Highly Efficient Air Conditioners
A traditional air conditioning system has two parts: an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler, and an outdoor unit. The outdoor condenser unit releases the heat the refrigerant picks up inside the home. Indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together.
When the air conditioner is properly matched with a furnace or air handler, you get maximum efficiency and longer system life. Air conditioning and cooling efficiency is measured using a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). A higher SEER rating means higher energy efficiency.
Increased efficiency may substantially lower your home cooling costs.
Variable speed blower motor equipment allows for extremely quiet operation as well as dehumidification capability
