Blueridge mini-splits are whisper quiet and energy efficient. They use specialized inverter technology - a luxury feature not found in most standard HVAC systems. Inverter technology allows for precise, even heating and cooling. This powerful technology saves energy while heating and cooling more quietly and more effectively than traditional systems. They heat and cool by zone. This allows you to control temperatures by room or turn them off in unused rooms.
These systems consist of one outdoor condenser and at least one indoor air handler. These are connected using copper lines and special wire. You can use a single-zone system to heat and cool one space or multi-zone systems for multiple rooms.
Blueridge systems are simple to design and easy to install. Our product specialists can help you properly size and design the best system for your application.
"Blueridge ductless mini-splits are exclusive to Alpine Home Air and are one of our most popular brands. These units are manufactured to our specifications by the largest, most reputable HVAC manufacturer in the world. Our customers love them! We receive rave reviews because these products are solidly-engineered, thoroughly tested, reliable, and quiet.
Our customers order Blueridge because of the incredible value and savings. Competing brands cost more for one reason: a long supply chain raising the price before the product hits your door. With Blueridge, we buy directly from the manufacturer and our customers save thousands of dollars.
Long established throughout the rest of the world, mini-splits are quickly gaining popularity across America. The ease of installation, versatility, and savings cannot be matched.

Heating Capacity

The amount of heat, rated in BTUs that the item can produce.

Heating Capacity
48000 BTU

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.

21.5 SEER
Energy Efficiency Ratio

The measure of air conditioner efficiency at its maximum load

Energy Efficiency Ratio
11.6 EER
Coefficient of Performance

Coefficient of Performance is the efficiency ratio of the amount of heating or cooling provided by a heating or cooling unit to the energy consumed by the system. The higher the Coefficient of Performance the more efficient the system. Resistance electrical heating (such as electric baseboards) for example has a Coefficient of Performance of 1.0

Coefficient of Performance
3.4 COP
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
10.4 HSPF

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.

Factory Precharge

This unit is charged with enough refrigerant for the condensing unit evaporator coil and the length of line stated. Longer line sets can be used but would require some additional refrigerant for appropriate operation.

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.

Line Set Connection Type
Compressor Type

Reciprocating compressors use a piston to compress the refrigerant.

Rotary compressors utilize a roller rotating eccentrically inside a cylinder and a spring mounted blade always rubbing against the roller. As the eccentric rotates towards the blade, the space is decreased and the refrigerant is compressed. Rotary compressors are very efficient.

Scroll compressors consists of 2 scrolls to pressurize refrigerant. Often 1 scroll is fixed and the other orbits eccentrically compressing the gas between the scrolls. Scroll compressors are quiet, smooth and offer highest efficiency ratio of all compressor types.

Scroll Ultratech™ compressors are advanced scroll compressors which offer more features and better diagnostics.

Compressor Type
