Mitsubishi Mini-Split System

Post by redoverfarm »

Lets try this again.

I am currently installing a Mini-Split system and have run into a problem. Has anyone else on the forum installed one of these systems.

* Basicly the same information in the previous post which was not approved. :?:
No links attached.

Daniel did you install it yourself or have a contractor install? The problem I ran into with the installation is the refrigerant lines in the back of the air handler. I will have two wall units and two floor units. Floor units is ok as I can bend the line sets to line up with the way I want them to run. The wall units are a different story. They are turcked into the back with the orientation from right to left (facing). I need them to go 90 deg off the back and then turn up to hook the line sets to. I have tried every forum I know and I get the same answer " Contact a professional". I even called Mitsubishi support and received the same answer, You got to understand that when going to an outside wall they have to run 90 deg out the back. I think I found a guy in Atlanta whoi says no probem bending them straight, up or down it will not hurt them. Sort of like they are intended to be bent but they frown on DIY'rs taking their paycheck.

With a new construction I am going to run everything inside the wall partition and out at a central point to the outside unit w/exception of the drip lines which I will combine at two points.

First time posting here so I guess it is permissible to link other forums. This is a little project that I started on 2004 but never got around to doing any thing with it until this spring. I will end up W/ 1-bdrm garage apartment.

You ask why so long. Well this was done in between. 6 Years worth

Not sure this will work but I will try. I do have a running history of the build if anyone is interested I can post later if it is OK

Check-out my web page documenting our Mitsubishi systems installation here. Great systems, but be aware of the rotary fan cleaning issue I ran into.
