Benefits of a Mitsubishi Mini-Split System
Updated: Feb 16
Wright’s AC & Heat has been in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry for over thirty years. We don’t say that to brag, but to highlight the significant experience and exposure we have to the highest quality HVAC equipment and supplies.
This post will highlight the benefits of the Mitsubishi mini-split system. While most of us are familiar with Mitsubishi Motors, you’d be surprised and impressed to know that they also have an Electric Cooling & Heating division that carries HVAC systems that are energy-efficient, affordable and reliable. It is now a trusted name in the HVAC and comfort control industry in the United States.
Wright’s AC & Heat makes it a priority to carry the best brands for our customers, brands that will work well and save them money. Mitsubishi is one such brand.
Before we get into the benefits of the Mitsubishi mini-split system, let’s discuss what a mini-split system is.
A ductless mini-split system has two major components: the air-handling unit inside your home, known as the evaporator unit and the condenser unit located outside. These two units are connected by refrigerant lines which contain the chemicals that perform the cooling of the air.
The "mini" in mini-split refers to the size of the units as they are sleek and compact, allowing flexibility in where you want the indoor unit placed on your wall or ceiling. These mini-split units are much different from the larger heating and cooling systems we are used to seeing. Gone are the days when you had to remove your windows to put in a window air conditioner.
Benefits of a Mitsubishi Mini-Split System
The Mitsubishi mini-split system does not require ducts to operate. This means that you will not have to retrofit your home to install the systems. These systems deliver cooled and heated air directly to the rooms they serve, without the need for noisy fans.
Without ducts, you also have the added benefit of reduced dust and allergens collecting and spreading through dirty ducts and you won’t lose out on your unit’s performance with leaks in the ducts.
IMPROVED INDOOR AIR QUALITY & MULTI-STAGE FILTRATION:
A whole-home system from Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating can help ensure better, fresher air in your home. This is because the air conditioning systems come with air filters already installed. Some also have a UV light for hvac units that kills bacteria and viruses on contact. If your unit does not already have this, it can be purchased and added on.
- PLATINUM DEODORIZING FILTER:
Available on select systems, Platinum Deodorizing filters use nanotechnology to absorb odors to neutralize the worst smells. This is useful for every home. What homeowner wouldn’t want to have a filter that neutralizes odors?
- WASHABLE FILTERS:
Washable filters last up to 10 years and give you another way to save money and reduce environmental impact. Instead of throwing away your filters and purchasing new ones, simply wash your filters and replace them in your mini-split system.
One of the benefits of using a brand as well known as Mitsubishi is that you can rely on its consistent efficiency. Mitsubishi Electric Zoned Comfort Solutions help you use the minimum amount of energy needed to maintain your desired indoor temperature. You can check the energy-efficiency of Mitsubishi mini-split system by checking its SEER.
A good SEER rating means that your mini-split system will work efficiently. The standard federal minimum SEER requirement is currently at 13.0 SEER. This might vary depending on where you live.
- INVERTER-COMPRESSOR TECHNOLOGY
Conventional systems are either on or off. Mitsubishi mini-split systems have compressors which ramp up or down based on the needs of each room to maintain comfort and conserve energy, instead of using energy to switch on and off. Most homeowners prefer mini-split systems with inverter compressors as they are cheaper than units with rotary compressors.
- ZONE-BY-ZONE CONTROL
Control each zone in your home independently and even turn off zones that are not in use. Imagine how much more you will save by being able to switch off the units in unoccupied rooms and only turning them on in rooms you are in. The Mitsubishi mini-split system gives you control over when and where your unit works because each room has its own unit and controls.
- PROGRAMMABLE TIMER
Sometimes the units aren’t to be blamed for the lack of energy efficiency, its the owners. We know, life happens and you might come home and plan to have your mini-split system on for only a few hours before switching to a fan, but then you fall asleep and the unit stays on all night.
If you are one of the property owners who wish to have your unit on for only a few hours, the programmable timer will work well for you. Set it to shut off in a few hours and you will never have to worry about falling asleep again.
Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating has introduced a significant advancement in heat pump technology in their mini-split systems, making their products an excellent solution for maintaining your home’s comfort, even in extremely cold climates.
- WHISPER QUIET:
Mitsubishi mini-split systems operate as low as 19dB(A), quieter than a human whisper. Outdoor units operate as low as 58 dB(A)—the level of a restaurant conversation or background music. No need to worry about loud, industrial-level noise in your home or property.
All system components are designed to work in quiet harmony with details like an insulated compressor compartment and vibration dampeners. You never have to hear the disruptive clanging of a central air system turning on and off again. With the mini-split systems, that noise is a thing of the past.
- SMART CONTROLS:
With a variety of options to choose from, including the Kumo cloud® app, Mitsubishi Electric makes it easy to manage your cooling and heating systems from just about any smartphone or tablet, no matter where you are. Turn your units on or off, adjust the settings or anything else with the ease of use the app provides.
- TOTAL ZONE CONTROL:
RedLINK™ technology allows you to connect up to 16 devices to your cooling and heating system, without interfering with other wireless home devices.
- CONSTANT COMFORT:
Mitsubishi Electric Zoned Comfort Solutions, including the deluxe wall-mounted models, use advanced features like 3D i-see Sensor™ to monitor occupancy in individual zones and adjust the temperature so you are always comfortable.
- ZONED MONITORING
Air handlers in each room measure return air and adjust automatically, rather than adjusting to conditions measured by a thermostat in a different room. This is another way in which you have total control over your mini-split systems.
