Ductless Air Conditioning Sales, Service and Installation
Welcome to Mitsubishiacdealers.com. Our Mitsubishi Electric ductless systems provide an excellent alternative to central air conditioning. Ductless air conditioning consists of an indoor unit and outdoor unit that provides heating or cooling for each room. Instead of a central unit setting the temperature for the entire house, each pair of units in a ductless system works independently for individualized temperature control in each room. If the building does not already have central air conditioning, a ductless system eliminates the disruptive process of installing ducts into the attic or walls and the ongoing need to maintain them to ensure there are no leaks.
We provide guidance and installation to customers considering a ductless heat pump or ductless air conditioning. Our local dealers can assist with the selection, sizing, and installation of one of these high efficiency HVAC systems. To get started, just enter your zip code.

Select and Size Your System
Units are available that provide cooling only or heating and cooling. The size of the unit will be determined by the size of the room as well as other factors that may require a stronger unit such as direct sunlight, poor insulation, or major appliances in the room. Our experts will be happy to provide guidance on proper sizing. If desired, indoor units can be combined into zones with a single outdoor system in order to reduce the outside footprint.
Install the Outdoor Unit
The outdoor unit needs to be placed on a level surface where it will be protected from potential flooding during rain. If possible, a concrete base is best. There is some flexibility in placement to accommodate landscaping or to have the unit out of sight, but they do need to be placed within a reasonable distance of the intended installation point for the indoor unit. They are not designed to pump air over long distances as with central air conditioning units.
Run the Refrigerant Line
Running the refrigerant line is the next step. It connects the indoor and outdoor units and requires drilling a small hole in the wall about three inches wide. The power cables and condensation drain are run through this hole. Once the refrigerant line is connected to each unit, it should be pressure tested to ensure there are no leaks before refrigerant is added. In a split system with multiple indoor units per outdoor unit, there is a set of lines for each indoor unit.
Install the Indoor Unit
There are two options for installing indoor units. The most common option is a wall unit. These are placed high on the wall and contain a fan and directional fins to distribute the air throughout the room. Horizontal floor units can also be used, but these units must work harder to distribute the air and care must be taken so that they are not blocked by furniture. Mitsubishi Electric ductless systems provide the perfect combination of engineering and design for either option. They are small, quiet, powerful, and efficient.
