Ductless air conditioners and heat pumps are comprised of an indoor and outdoor unit, which allows for a peaceful inside environment by enabling the contractor to install louder components like compressors and motors outdoors.
How a Mini-Split Works
Like conventional HVAC systems, the Fujitsu Halcyon system locates the noisy compressor and condenser outside the house. But Halcyon systems eliminate the need for a basement- or attic-located evaporator unit and bulky ductwork by using thin copper tubing that pumps refrigerant directly to discreet wall mounted blowers inside. Even more remarkable, this same unit works in reverse in winter, absorbing heat from the outside air and moving it indoors to heat your home. The result? Efficient cooling and heating for year-round, whole-house comfort in most climates.
Available in numerous mix-and-match capacities and configurations, there’s a Halcyon mini-split system for even the most difficult to heat and cool areas.
Copper tubing running through a small 3 to 4-inch opening in the wall or ceiling easily connects the indoor and outdoor units. Refrigerant is cycled through the lines from the outdoor condensing unit to the indoor unit, where the air is quietly distributed to the interior space.
Conventional air duct systems tend to be bulky and can require special structural attention while Halcyon system piping can often be routed through walls and joists to maintain aesthetics. Flexible, Remote Control Cooling Because each room has its own handler, you can create up to four zones with a timer and optional wired remote that puts you in temperature control and allows you to meet the varying comfort needs of different spaces.
Through advanced technology, Inverter air conditioners are more economical to operate and quieter to run than conventional units. They are smoother and more stable in operation and reach the desired temperature more quickly than conventional air conditioners. The Inverter component allows the outdoor unit to vary its speed and output to match the required capacity of the indoor unit. Thus, the Inverter model can achieve 30% more operating efficiency than conventional models and therefore, is much less expensive to run.
ENERGY STAR Qualified® (Excludes System 30RLX)
Since mini splits have little to no ducting, they forego those energy losses typically associated with central forced-air systems. Duct losses can easily account for more than 30% of energy consumption, especially if the ducts are not sealed tight or in an unconditioned space such as an attic or crawlspace. With ratings as high as 23.0-SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), these systems are among the highest-rated efficiency equipment available anywhere!
These heat pumps feature both an Apple-Catechin Filter and an Ion Deodorizing Filter. The Apple-Catechin Filter absorbs dust, mold spores and microorganisms by static electricity. Growth is inhibited and deactivated by the polyphenol ingredient extracted from apples. The Ion Deodorizing Filter deodorizes by powerfully decomposing absorbed odors using the oxidizing and reducing effects of ions generated by the ultra-fine particle ceramic.
Wall-mounted systems include an extra quiet fan speed (“Quiet Mode”) to make sure that you are not disturbed.
Wireless Remote Controller
Comfort control is at your fingertips with the standard wireless remote controller.
Washable Panel Filter
The removable and washable panel filter is an effective air cleanser, removing mold & dust from the environment. The cleaning of the indoor unit itself is simple due to the design and shape of the casing.
Smart System: Auto Mode
When the system is initially turned on, the fan speed is HIGH to reach the set temperature as quickly as possible. The fan speed will automatically adjust downward as the room begins to reach the set temperature.
This system features Dry Mode, which helps to control humidity levels, even when cooling may not be needed. For more information about the Fujitsu Wall-Mounted Heat Pumps click here
