Reply! is the place to go when you're ready to seek AC estimates and hire a contractor. Of course, estimates for work vary according to any number of factors, so it goes without saying that it's always a good idea to get in touch with a few licensed professionals before starting work on your home or making any kind of difficult to undo decisions.
The guidance you'll get from a licensed, bonded and insured professional will inform your understanding of the AC installation process enormously.
If you're looking for an easy to install air conditioner, Mr. Slim is definitely going to be on your list. One of the nice things about Mr. Slim air conditioners is that Mitsubishi's design teams have always prioritized a compact design and efficient use of very limited space for its wall units.
This approach may have something to do with Mitsubishi being a Japanese company with a traditional focus on smaller, faster and more efficient. So great is Mitsubishi's emphasis on function, that the MSZ-F series of units has actually been designed to work as an air-filtration device, in addition to its more straightforward role as a cooling unit.
When it comes to efficiency, any kind of gap in your insulation is likely to act as a conduit for heat to either escape out in cold weather, or to come bleeding back into your home when it's hot outside.
Large holes are necessary and unavoidable with traditional split-system air conditioners, but the commitment of the Mr. Slim line to efficiency means that these units are designed to connect across only a very short gap in the wall, through an aperture with a maximum interior diameter of a mere 3 inches.
The warranty is OK at five years for parts and seven for the compressor. It is lower than some of the big brands, like Carrier, Trane and Lennox.
Learning about the different options available for cooling and heating your home can go a long way toward helping you choose the right system for your needs. Mr. Slim is an ideal solution for many different situations. Discuss your cooling options with a professional contractor.
