12,000 BTU (1 Ton) 20 SEER Single Zone Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump System


Comfort-Aire's "V" Series mini-splits utilize inverter technology to reduce temperature fluctuations while saving up to 40% on energy consumption (compared to a standard mini-split).

Basically the inverter allows the compressor to run at variable speeds to match the demand, providing precise temperature control.

Most of the time the unit runs at a low "economy" speed to maintain the temperature and humidity levels. During times of high demand, the compressor ramps up automatically to a higher speed.  Inverter units reach SEER levels as high as 20 for real energy efficiency.

Mini-splits are the ideal solution for conditioning areas where adding ductwork is impractical or too expensive. This includes older homes, bedrooms, sunrooms, additions, office spaces, computer rooms, sports arena skyboxes, and interior warehouse offices, to name just a few.

Standard Features

  • Whisper Quiet—High tech fan in the indoor unit delivers balanced air flow
  • Temperature Compensation—Indoor unit adjusts automatically as needed to eliminate stratification between ceiling and floor temperatures
  • Random Swing—Continually adjusts air direction for a gentle, breeze-like effect
  • Multiple Modes—Cooling, dehumidification only, air circulation (heating in heat pump models) plus: Sleep mode, 24-hour timer and turbo mode
  • Auto Operation—Automatically adjusts to maintain a constant temperature/humidity level
  • Air Filtration—An air filter helps trap dust, pollen and other particles in the air; this permanent filter is designed to be washed on a regular basis and re-installed
  • Auto Restart—Reverts to the last setting following a power failure
  • Low Ambient Operation—Crankcase heater allow operation at 5°F (cooling)

Complete your system by selecting a line set from the Accessories tab above.  Line sets come in 15, 35, and 50 foot lengths.

SEER

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measure of cooling over an entire season. It is determined by comparing the amount of cooling produced in BTUs in relation to the amount of electricity used. A higher SEER means a system is more energy efficient and would provide comfort at a lower utility cost than a lower SEER system.

Energy Efficiency Ratio

The measure of air conditioner efficiency at its maximum load

Energy Efficiency Ratio
12.15 EER
Heating Seasonal Performance Factor

A measure of heat pump efficiency while in a heating mode. The higher the number the better the energy efficiency.

Heating Seasonal Performance Factor
9.5 HSPF
Refrigerant

Inside air conditioning systems are liquid/gas refrigerant. There are two types of this refrigerant available for use, R-22 (more commonly known as Freon), and a newer alternative R-410A.

An air conditioning system does not consume refrigerant, but reuses it. As long as there are no leaks in the refrigerant circuit, there is no need to ever add more refrigerant to an air conditioning system.

Although R-22 is an effective refrigerant, if it is released into the atmosphere it can contribute to the depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer. The EPA has mandated the phasing out the use of R-22. It is being replaced by R-410A.

As of 2010, manufacturers are required to make all new air conditioners with R-410A. However, R-22 is still available for sale in existing pre-2010-manufactured equipment, and for use in servicing existing R-22 equipment. By 2020, R-22 will no longer be manufactured, but will still be recycled and available for sale.

Line Set Connection Type

There are two main types of connections for HVAC products brazed and flared. Brazed connections are typically used in standard split systems, and flare connections are typically used on mini splits and can be connected using a wrench.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified

Products earn the ENERGY STAR label by meeting the energy efficiency requirements set forth in ENERGY STAR specifications. The EPA establishes these specifications based on the following set of principles:

  • Product categories must contribute significant energy savings nationwide.
  • Qualified products must deliver the features and performance demanded by consumers, in addition to increased energy efficiency.
  • If the qualified product costs more than a conventional, less-efficient counterpart, purchasers will recover their investment in increased energy efficiency through utility bill savings, within a reasonable period of time.
  • Energy efficiency can be achieved through broadly available, non-proprietary technologies offered by multiple manufacturers.
  • Product energy consumption and performance can be measured and verified with testing.
  • Labeling would effectively differentiate products and be visible for purchasers.
