General Product Information
is a ductless mini-split system?
A ductless mini-split system is comprised of an indoor unit
called the evaporator and an outdoor unit called the condensing unit.
The evaporator is connected to the condensing unit by copper tubing and
electrical wiring which is passed through a 2 ½” – 3” hole. Basically,
it is a small central air unit with the flexibility of cooling or
heating one room or more; zoning.
are the advantages of installing a Fujitsu ductless mini-split over a
central air system?
1) With Central Air you must cool an entire home when only one
room may need cooling. On the other hand, ductless mini-splits cool
only the areas you want and not the areas you don’t.
2) 18,000 BTU is a typical minimum central air unit. With
ductless mini-splits, you can use 7,000, 9,000 or 12,000 BTUs.
3) Typical 3-ton homes are not zoned or require complex zoning
systems, which makes it very expensive for the homeowner. With ductless
mini-splits, multiple evaporators make zoning as simple as setting a
4) Energy wasted in long lengths of uninhabited ductwork means
higher energy bills. Less than 5% cooling loss occurs in insulated
refrigerant lines compared with up to 25% through ducts.
5) Retrofitting homes requires cutting holes in walls, floors,
ceilings or decreasing closet space with ducts. Ductless mini-splits
requires just a 3 or 4” diameter hole in the outside wall. Means less
mess and better home aesthetics.

should I clean the plasma filter of an I.A.Q. system?
The plasma filter has a life span of 6 to 8 years and should be
washed every 400 hours of use. The filter easily detaches to be washed
with mild detergent. The filter is not dishwasher safe. An LED light
on the indoor evaporator unit will notify you when it is time to clean
the filter. If the light is ignored, the unit will automatically shut
down after 100 additional hours
of use until the filter is washed.

What is SEER?
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio; a measure of cooling efficiency
for air conditioners and heat pumps. The higher the SEER, the more
energy efficient the unit. Energy efficiency equates to lower
electrical bills. Currently U.S.
Government’s minimum SEER rating is 13.
is a BTU?
British Thermal Unit. Used to measure cooling or heating
capacity; the amount of heat required to raise or lower the temperature
of 1 lb of water 1°F.
