Mini-Split Air Conditioners Questions

What are mini-split air conditioners?
   Mini-split air conditioners are air conditioning systems that, unlike window ACs, have a separate indoor and outdoor unit. The indoor unit is typically mounted on the wall and acts as the air handler while the outdoor unit is the compressor/condenser. The two units are linked together by the refrigerant pipes, control wires, and control via remote controller.
How do mini-split air conditioners work?
   The whole system consists of an indoor unit (top), outdoor unit (bottom), connecting pipes and wires, and remote control. This split system is fairly similar to the central air system in a sense that there are two separate units working together. The main difference is that mini-split air conditioners are made to cool/heat individual rooms rather than the whole house.
    The indoor unit is the air handler which vents the air received from the outdoor unit (compressor/condenser). The two units are linked together by the refrigerant pipes and control wires. Because of the phase-out of R22 (Freon) in 2010 all of our units uses the environment friendly alternative, R410a refrigerant.
    The power of mini-split air conditioners are rate in British thermal units (BTUs). Generally speaking, a BTU is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound (0.45 kg) of water 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.56 degrees Celsius). Thus, the higher the BTU the stronger the cooling/heating power. iNNova offers 9,000 BTU, 12,000 BTU, 18,000 BTU, and 24,000 BTU mini-split air conditioner systems.
What are the benefits of mini-split air conditioners?
   One of the main benefits of mini-split air conditioners is its energy efficiency when compared to central air and window AC units. On average, mini-split AC (SEER 13) consumes 30% less power than the typical window AC (SEER 10) while providing the same output. Other attractive features include flexible installation, remote controlled, environment friendly R410a refrigerant, quiet operation, sleek design, and special unit functions.

How do I find out what size or BTU system I need?
   The first step to make out what size system best fits your needs is to find the square footage of the room. To do so, simply measure the width and length of the room and multiply the two values. As a rule of thumb, every 100 square feet should have 2,500 BTU of cooling/heating power. The following table shows the recommend square footage for each unit size.
   12,000 BTU = 1 tonnage (ton)
In addition to room size, other factors should also be considered including house architecture and average seasonal temperature.

We kindly advise our customers to be careful with companies who claim unusually high application areas for their AC systems. These values are highly exaggerated and may result in an insufficient cooling/heating BTU system for the designated area.

What are the basic maintenance required for Mini-Split ACs?

    Mini Split Air Conditioners do not require much maintenance for regular users.

  • One of the more important task is to clean the air filters regularly (once every 6 months or so). Clogged filters may reduced air flow and degrade unit performance. To access the filters, simply remove the front panel of the indoor unit. Side the filters upward and detach them from the unit. All our filters are reusable. Just use water and a brush to clean them then slide them back into the unit!
  • Especially during Spring and Fall, leaves and other plant materials may build up around the outdoor unit. Regularly ensure that no debris are blocking air flow of the unit to guarantee best performance.
  • Cleaning the indoor unit filters and making sure no debris is blocking the outdoor unit are the only maintenance needed for the system.
Do you carry systems with multiple indoor units and only 1 indoor unit? (multi-zone)
No, we do not carry multi-zone units. We don't recommend multi-zone units to our customers because installation usually requires longer line sets running throughout the house. Longer lines makes the unit less energy efficient and is more prone to refrigerant leaks in the future. Multi-zone systems also tend to be more expensive and require 220v, thus the installation will also be more expensive.
