FAQs

Is a Blueridge mini split system pre-charged?

Yes – Blueridge some heat pump systems are.

Others are not. Let’s explain.

Blueridge makes two types of heat pump systems – those that require pro installation (vacuum the lines, add refrigerant charge, test and run), and those that are true DIY. As you browse the Alpine Home Air Blueridge page, it’s easy to distinguish the two.

If you’re handy, consider one of the DIY systems. Install the outdoor unit and indoor unit, connect the refrigerant lines, power wiring and drain. That’s it!

You’ll notice that the DIY systems are a few hundred bucks more expensive than comparably sized pro-install systems. It is because they are pre-charged with refrigerant.

Should you leave a mini split on all the time?

They can be left on – and should be during seasons when you want heating or cooling. Mini split systems are designed to run all the time or 24/7. By running all the time, mini split systems keep the temperature consistent. This enables the homeowner to not need any adjustments in order to maintain your desired temperature. Just make sure your fan is set to “AUTO.”

You can be sure the system won’t overly heat or overly cool the space because of their effective thermostat control.

If you won’t need heating or cooling for a few weeks or months in the spring or fall, then sure, turn off the system.

  1. How effective are they in cold weather? I know they produce heat, but there is no comparison to Mitsubishi’s readily available, 100% effective/ efficient rating. How cold can the outside temperature be and still operate at 100%? Can’t find line/load graphs or anything of the like for this manufacturer.
    Thanks for any help
