The boxes are not big at all. Two boxes, both are single person lift. They fit in the back of my 2004 Mercury Mountaineer/Ford Explorer with no problems. They would probably both fit in something as small as a Subaru Outback with no problem.

Asked by Jacob December 12, 2019

Definitely needs to be flush mounted. The filter housing opens on the top and is hinged at the back of the air handler. If it's inset, you won't be able to open the top panel to service the filter.

can it be mounted near the floor?

Asked by steve November 8, 2019

I would say no. The vents are on the bottom of the unit. Air flows out and at an angle. I feel like it wouldn’t function properly if placed low or near the floor. I would follow the guide included for placement.

Asked by Kim November 3, 2019
2
Answers

We have noticed no significant increase in electric bill with this unit. I would say it'll probably cost less than a typical window unit to operate. Best bet is to compare the Energy Guide for the comparable systems. This is a DIY system so almost all of the installation can be done by a semi-proficient DIYer. However, you will probably need an electrician to set up the disconnect that's required by most electrical codes, and that can run a few hundred dollars.

The mini-split unit was easy to install. It is performing as stated, The convenient feature for installation is that I didn't have to depend on an AC technician to load or charge refrigerant gas, it was preloaded and ready to go. The remote control is very convenient. The phone application to set and control temperature through the distance is a plus.

I purchased this unit for use in a small addition to my home. The unit arrived during the time frame it was promised and was delivered literally right to my door. Installation was not difficult. It is whisper quiet and works very well at maintaining an even temperature in the space. Use of the remote is simple and easy to understand. I am very happy with this purchase.

This is a simple unit to install. However, there is no way to reduce the length of the refrigerant lines and the ordering information is very sketchy with regard to being able to contact the manufacturer to order the unit with other lengths. The bottom line is that I'm faced with paying an HVAC technician to make a house call to shorten the lines....pretty much defeats the purpose of DIY installation. When the unit goes to defrost mode, it drops condensate all over my porch and then turns to ice. Even though there is a drain hose, there are multiple holes in the bottom of the outside unit and no way to direct the water to the drain hose. Please advise.

Response from MR COOL TeamJan 17, 2020
Hello,

We are very sorry for any confusion with our product, we currently do not have a line-set length shorter than 25ft on our DIY. We are currently working on having a 16ft available in the future. In regards to your condensation issue please feel free to contact our tech department at 270-366-0457 ext 201 and 202. Thank you. mrcool

It doesn't get a 5-star review because of the awful installation manual. There are huge gaps at crucial points AND just plain errors! Do your research and don't just read or watch the company's fodder, they oversimplify it. Watch what users post, we got excellent do's and don'ts from outside sources. We put in two units and they fired right up on completion and are surprisingly quiet.

I em very happy with this unit, it cools down my living room and more. I can control temperature from anywhere with my phone app and it's pretty easy to install, but in my case dou to limited space i had some difficulties so i had to remove white plastic pipe covering so i could run through the wall. I wish the coper pipe length could be oredered by diferent length so you dont have to much of excess pipe left to roll behind outside unit.

ok first it was boxed really well and showed up at store fast. Now for the mr cool diy I already have a 24000 btu in my sunroom and it works great cold in summer ever with the heat waves we been having and in winter it heats really great I kept my sunroom nice and warm ever at 5 degree it still pumped out the heat. so now to the new unit it was a 12000 btu heat and cool for my bedroom took the noisy window unit out and mounted right above the window now it has been cooling really well tried the heat mode but don't need till winter the best part of these units is you do it your self no havc tect to draw vacuum and add Freon if needed now it only comes with 25 foot hose I used it all was almost to shot but I did it if you have to much you just roll it behind the unit. it tool me 6 hours from start to finish and had a solid header to drill thru the hose is very flexible it is best to have a helper push hoes thru the wall hook up is so easy and with in 10 minutes after install it was cooling my room down I love these units and the warranty is great 5 years on unit and 7 years on compressor even with your home install may cost a little more but by the time you get someone in it will cost more

After much research and weighing the cost savings of the MrCool DIY vs purchasing a professionally installed unit, I decided to tackle this as a weekend project. I began on a Friday evening by gathering all necessary tools/materials and running wiring from electrical panel to a non-fusible disconnect. The prep work performed Friday evening made the unit install feel much less stressful on Saturday. The unit was easy to install using the template for attaching the wall-mount plate and drilling the 3.5 in hole for lines and drain. The best part was being able to "charge" the system with refrigerant by simply opening the two valves on the outside unit with an Allen wrench. For my install, the provided 25 ft line set was more than enough. If you plan to install a ductless mini split to heat/cool 500 sqft or less and 25 ft of line set is enough, I would strongly recommend the DIY Enhanced 12,000 BTU 1 Ton Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner and Heat Pump - 115V/60Hz.

First off, I never write reviews, but as a do-it-yourselfer I wanted to throw my hat in the ring on this one. I purchased the 12,000 BTU 110 unit. It came extremely well packaged (triple layered protection) and was cosmetically very nice looking. I watched several Youtube videos about the installation and I'm glad I did. The included directions are miserably vague. That being said, there are not any really difficult aspects of installing this unit. I put mine on an inside wall so that complicated my install a bit, but it was not that tough. The lineset that came with mine was only copper at the ends, meaning it was braided for the majority of the run and easy to route and move around. I was terrified of kinking it, but that is not the case, you just have to be careful near the ends. I mounted mine on the side of the house, so I also purchased a wall mount kit and a line set trim kit. By running the lines up through the attic, I did not have to worry about hiding the extra length. Hopefully, anyone that does attempt this install will know that the drain CANNOT be run up and overhead because, you know, gravity. I ran mine down into an existing floor drain. Pay attention when removing the mounting bracket from the indoor unit from shipping. There is a screw that holds it in place just for that and it is discarded. I spent about 5 minutes trying to get the thing to snap onto the bracket after it was already up. I would do a double take on how that attaches before trying to mount the unit. The wall mount kit that I bought was a universal one so I had to drill a few holes in the metal to space my brackets evenly, but I expected some sort of customization on that piece. I have not used the heat, but the A/C works flawlessly. It is SUPER quiet, both the indoor and outdoor units. I would also pay very close attention to where you drill your hole for the lineset to go through. I measured wrong and can see about 1/2 inch of my hole from the right angle. If you are facing the front of the indoor unit, the lineset comes out the left side from the factory, and that's how I left it for fear of kinking the copper ends. The only reason I am not leaving 5 stars is because there is no thermostat, so to speak. In a conventional system, you set it to 72 degrees and when it gets there it shuts off. This guy just slows down and blows 72 degree air. It never shuts off unless you turn it off. So if you want to cool a room down really quick, set it to 68 and brace for the cold, because it will freeze you out. There is a temperature sensor in it, I saw it, and the app reports the room temperature, just disappointed in this one thing. I did read that Nest is supposed to have an interface for it sometime this year (2019). I highly recommend this unit. Quiet, cool, fairly easy to install, and budget friendly. Attached are two pictures of my install just because, drawing.

Good product for the money
I just bought this unit with low expectations since I live in Florida. I decided to go mini splits over conventional so I can control costs. It was a good choice. Easy to install. Wall bracket should be built to adapt to standard 16 on center wall framing.
