Here is the Fujitsu 33000 BTU BTU 15.5 SEER Wall Mounted Ductless Single zone. It is a great unit that comes with tons of bells and whistles. In particular, it has variable fan speeds, a handy remote control, and a programmable thermostat.
The 12,000 Btu/h 20.5 Seer Mitsubishi Single-Zone Mini Split Air Conditioning System – MUYGE12NA – MSYGE12NA also comes with some nifty features like a remote, timer, and heating option.
You may have heard sales people recommending ductless air conditioners, but the chances are you probably don’t understand how it exactly works. Below is a basic explanation of how these units function.
These units basically have two speeds, which are flat out and stop. The engine in the unit is like the engine that is in your vehicle.
The systems also use a lot of electricity, as it takes a lot of energy to start the motor, and once your home reaches the desire temperature, then the motor will just shut off.
Fujitsu and Mitsubishi’s motors are designed a little bit differently, as these motors will tend to start up slowly. This means that the motors do not use a lot of power, and then the motor will slowly speed up until it reaches full power. This allows the system to use less power when the system is first started. Both companies make excellent systems.
When the ductless system gets closer to the desired temperature, then the motor will start to slow down, and this will cause the system to use less electricity. Also, the temp will remain constant, as long as you have chosen a proper unit for your home.
The motor does not have to come to a full stop, and this helps you use less energy.
However, there is one warning to keep in mind, and that is to not under size your system. If you choose the wrong unit, then you will end up using more energy, but if you choose the right size, then you will end up using far less electricity.
