Honest Review
Hopefully, this will help others and the manufacture with an honest review. First of all I ordered two of the 12K DIY systems. They come in three boxes for each system, 6 total. One of the boxes had some missing pieces and I had to return it. I kept the other unit and installed it. The installation directions could use some help: There are two sets of directions and they are contradictory. Don't use the Quick set up or you will miss steps. Secondly, Each set of directions say to connect the long AC lines to the interior unit "Before" it goes through the wall......why? That part really makes no sense and complicates the install, and creates opportunities to damage the lines. Thirdly, the "tape" provided with the unit is not really tape. It is a plastic wrapping product with no sticky sides.....Make sure you have some really good tape with you. Duct tape will work nicely. You will need to use the duct tape to start and terminate the plastic wrapping stuff. The plastic wrapping stuff protects the lines and holds them in place. Also, the instructions say to run the unit for 30 min after install.....first cool, then heat. Stop right there. They don't tell you the unit will go into a shut down mode if you run cool first....it needs to thaw out before running the heat. I suggest running the heat first......wait about 10 min, and then run the cool. I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out if the system was working and it was just in shut down/thaw mode. Finally, when installing the exterior lines, be sure to check the fitting torques between the brass fittings and the exterior unit. Mine were a little loose and moved when I was attaching the system lines.....I had to re-torque them. The DIY systems come with 25' or 16' line lengths. Try to get the shortest length needed for your system. Think about where you are placing the exterior system. If it's on the ground, 16' might be ok even for a two story house. The point is, you cannot cut the extra line length. The directions say to roll it up and place it behind the exterior unit......it looks a bit rough and unprofessional. Overall, the system runs very well and is Sooo Quiet. It wouldn't take much for the mfg. to write a nice install manual for a DIY person. Everything is now out of stock so I will need to wait for another system to become available......bummer. Have fun and take your time.

    Install not as easy as promised
    Like the earlier reviewer, we had a hard time pushing the line set through the wall. A really hard time. So hard it broke the drywall. The two refrigerant lines + drain line + electrical + the heavy protective wrap simply do not fit well in the diameter of the wall hole. Second, the condenser end of our line set and the condenser itself WERE NOT COLOR CODED. They were missing the colored caps. No way to tell what goes where, and you can’t unscrew them without voiding your warranty. So we’re stuck at that step. Watching videos to see if we can eyeball it. Maybe customer service can help. Who knows.

      Instructions were straightforward and a ton of help online as well, getting electricity to the unit was the most difficult part. The unit itself is great, looks good and app is easy to set up

      The MrCool DIY 115 Volt Unit was for my workshop to make that area enjoyable. Installation was completed over two weekends to insure everything went smooth during the installation. The shop had studs on 16 inch centers; however, I added 3/4 inch plywood to the dimensions of the inside register and behind the exterior condenser stand. I fastened the air handler mounting plate with three inch cabinet screws go through the plywood and into the studs. I used 2-1/2 inch lag screws for the horizontal top bar of the condenser stand going through the top bar and into the studs, the vertical stand brackets where fastened to the plywood with 1-1/2 inch lag screws. I ordered the Decorative PVC Line Cover Kit to cover the lines on the outside. Pushing the the condenser lines, communication cable, and the drain line bundle through the wall opening was a challenge when it came to bending the lines outside as that wanted to disconnect the mounted air handler unit from the mounting bracket. Once the lines were bent as needed that no longer was a problem. The long length of tubing comes wrapped in a heavy rubber sleeve which was hard to roll the excess because of the heavy rubber sleeve. That rubber sleeve was twice as big as needed and if smaller would have made rolling much easier. All electrical connections went smoothly and then testing of the system went smooth. The remote control is great and worked the first try after installation. I love the unit and would recommend it hole heartedly.
