At last, we will show you the estimated prices, negotiating tactics with your contractor and tax credit information. Ok, let’s get started!

Features:

  • Extremely discreet – Unlike many conditioning systems on the market today, the Fujitsu ductless heat pump offers a variety of lengths when it comes to connecting conduits. That means you can position the outdoor unit as far away as 40 or 50 feet from the indoor unit if you so wish. It also means you can heat a room or rooms on the front side of your house and still locate the outdoor unit in a more inconspicuous place.
  • Energy efficient with zone control – each mini split zone comes with its own thermostat. That means you don’t really have to condition unoccupied spaces or rooms, which saves you a lot of energy and a huge sum of money in the long run. Also, mini split heat pumps are ductless which means they have no ducts. They, therefore, avoid the usual energy losses that are common with the ductwork that is associated with central forced air systems. Ductwork energy loss, especially when the ducts are in the attic and other unconditioned spaces, can easily add up to more than 30% of the total energy consumed.
  • Several design options – the Fujitsu ductless heat pump comes in a variety of designs that offer more flexibility when it comes to interior design. These units can be hung on walls, mounted into drop ceilings, among other options. Floor standing units are also on the market.
  • Deodorizing filters – the heat pump also boasts of long-life ion deodorizing filters that decompose odors and dust, and control the growth of mold and other harmful microorganisms.
  • Variable watts/amps draw– due to advancements in technology, the Fujitsu ductless heat pump is able to run at variable watts and amps. That means the pump uses less electricity when it’s warmer.

  1. I have a Fujitsu, although has been problem free for almost 5 years, it now has an issue that actually the ‘parts’ may still be covered. However, labor to troubleshoot was $200 and estimate to put the parts in is $400.

    So much for a warranty.

  2. We installed in 2 houses mini-splits, a Daikin and a Fujitsu, the year that there was a $1500 federal tax credit. That winter we experienced a couple weeks of near 10 degree F weather, extreme cold for us. They ran full bore during that extreme cold and continued to provide some heat, but supplemental baseboard heat was required.
    A few years later the installer, subsequently self-employed, told me, “Running a mini-split at that temperature is like driving your vehicle at 90 mph down the freeway in low gear. It puts years of wear on them very quickly. Central heat-pump units automatically switch to induction heating in the mid-40s.” He advised to not run the min-splits below 30 degree F if we wanted them to last.
    A couple years ago a property manager acquaintance, who managed about 150 houses, asked if our units were still running and was very surprised that they were because most of those installed then, have had to be replaced. Most users probably never received information that my installer belatedly gave me, and which we’ve subsequently religiously followed.
    Not having that information stressed in the literature and by the installers seems derelict to me, but I’m not in the business of selling and replacing dead units in the depths of winter. There was no federal tax credit the second time around, and I suspect that the cost of the electricity saved by those replaced units was consumed more than twice over by the capital expenses.
    Aside from that, the reversible window air conditioners that I knew 60 years ago were designed so that the condensation drip pan could be cleaned without dismantling the the unit. They also rung much more moisture out of the air, but the R/H there may have been higher than the 55% we’re having here. A quick search shows that it is 80% there today, temp is 80 F, 3 degrees above here where the R/H is 58% right now.
