FAQ

Mini-Split Air-Conditioners / Heat Pumps (Mitsubishi Electric)

How is the unit installed, how does it work ?

Ductless mini-split air-conditioners or heat pumps include: An interior component or evaporator (source of cool air or heat) and an outdoor component or condensing unit. Both units are connected by piping that only requires an opening of 3 inches in diameter. The indoor unit can be installed either on a wall or on the ceiling. The indoor unit operates in heating mode (if it is a heat pump), air conditioning and dehumidification modes and can be adjusted with a 24 hour programmable remote control.

Where does the condensate go?
A pipe connecting the indoor unit to the outdoor unit, drains the condensate.
