Mini-Split

Anybody here installed a mini-split or 2 in their house? There are so many out there at all kinds of prices. Mitsubishi, Fujitsu and LG to name a few. Prices range from $3500 to $6700 for a 15000 BTU. Just wondering what some of you went with and why? I would like to keep the old lady from nagging about temperature in the living room once and for all, (I know, I know, it will never happen , but I would like to try)

The most important part of the minisplit is the install. The installer should perform a manual J (load calculation) on the room and size accordingly. The unit will run properly and not short cycle.

Next up is the unit itself. Mitsubishi and Daikin are best out there from what I have seen. Fujitsu is up there but below the above mentioned.

While your at it, make sure your model comes with a heating option. Good source of backup heat for a few extra bucks.

They have an office in Shediac, I'll check with them tomorrow. Always good to get several prices. Where are you from?

I was quoted $4,400 taxes in for a 15,000 BTU high efficiency Fujitsu good to -26C (-15F) installed. Is this within range of a fair deal. I really don't know what these go for and prices defer so much from one place to the other. This last guy has been in business for 16 years and you don't stay in business that long by screwing people over.

No that was the price from Quality Heat Pump Systems. And it was a 3 good to minus 26 (my mistake).

Went to Atlantic today and never knew the owner was an old friend of mine that I had lost track of. He said he was going to send Steven over and he would threat me right. Turns out Steve is also a lost old friend which I hadn't seen in 8 years since his young daughter's funeral. (She was almost 10) So tomorrow I will be getting a second quote. I will come back and let you know how that went. I didn't mention to them the first quote so this should be interesting.
