AIRSTAGE MINI-SPLIT BENEFITS Energy Efficiency
The Smart Choice in Comfort
As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. Considering this, making smart decisions about your home's heating and air conditioning system can have a substantial impact on your utility bills — and your comfort.
The high energy efficiencies of AIRSTAGE systems slash utility bills by up to 24%. For example, if your average annual utilities are $4,200, Fujitsu General can save you approximately $1,000 annually!*
Rebates are an added benefit. To encourage customers to buy energy efficient products, many local utility companies offer significant rebates for the purchase of a ductless mini-split system. Tap or Click here to search for local rebates, consumer loans and utility bill discounts.
What Makes Fujitsu General Mini-Split Systems Energy Efficient?
1. Ductless Technology
Ductless Technology Eliminates Energy Loss
Don't waste money cooling and heating the ducts in your walls and attic. Duct losses in a central air system can easily account for more than 30% of energy consumption, especially if the ducts are not sealed tight or located in an unconditioned space such as an attic or crawlspace. Fujitsu General systems are ductless, meaning they install easily and won't take up valuable closet space. Since mini-splits have little to no ducting, they forego those energy losses typically associated with central forced-air systems.
Great news for older homes and homes without existing ductwork: Ductless mini-split systems are a particularly good choice for you! Building ductwork for traditional central air conditioning units is a major expense and requires cutting holes in walls, floors, and ceilings, or decreasing closet space. Ductless systems only require a two- or three-inch hole just outside the wall.
2. Individual Zone Control
Individual Zone Control for Personalized "Whole Home Comfort"
Why pay to heat or cool areas that no one is occupying? Fujitsu General AIRSTAGE Ductless Mini-split Systems feature zoning technology, meaning you are only paying to condition the spaces in your home that you're using. Since each of the zones has its own thermostat, you only heat or cool the areas you want, and disregard those that are unoccupied.
In addition, you can set different rooms (or "zones") to different temperatures so that everyone has the temperature they want. No more "Family Thermostat Wars" with everyone fighting for their personal climate preference!
3. ENERGY STAR® Ratings
Fujitsu General Mini-splits have earned the "Most Efficient" rating by ENERGY STAR® for being 2.35 times more efficient than the government minimum standard. The ENERGY STAR® logo is assigned to products that meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. By choosing ENERGY STAR® certified heating and cooling equipment and taking steps to optimize its performance, you can enhance the comfort of your home while saving energy.

4. Inverter Technology
Cruise Control for Constant Comfort
Inverter technology is like cruise control for your heating or cooling system. Compressors only run as fast as they need to handle the cooling or heating demand. In short, they use only the energy needed to cool or heat your space, which reduces your energy bill by eliminating waste. Further, they can handle greater extremes in temperature, are smoother and more stable in operation, and reach the desired temperature more quickly than conventional air conditioners.
Homeowners benefit by enjoying:
- More heat at lower outdoor temperatures
- Lower RPMs = quieter operation
- Desired temperature in half the time
- Up to 30% more efficient
- Stable temperature
