System Specifications and Details

The GREE Sapphire mini split is a single zone system. It consists of one outdoor condenser or compressor connected to one indoor wall mounted air conditioner by a series of copper wires or pipes. A 1/4" x 1/2" line set is not included with your mini split system and must be purchased separately. Single-zone systems give you complete control over the climate environment in the room, floor, or general vicinity where the indoor unit is physically located.

Mini split size is measured in BTUs, or British Thermal Units. The size refers to their cooling capacity and ability to heat or cool rooms of certain square footages. A mini split must be in a properly sized room to perform properly. The Sapphire system is available in 9,000, 12,000, 18,000, or 24,000 BTU models to efficiently operate in different-sized indoor areas. Consult this sizing guide or a trained product specialist at ComfortUp for any sizing questions before purchasing your Sapphire system.

GREE Sapphire mini splits are built with certain components to provide optimal heating and cooling services. The variable speed two-stage compressor allows the Sapphire to heat and cool any indoor area in even the most extreme outdoor climates … it can heat your home in temperatures down to -22 ℉!

GREE’s G-10 Inverter technology also allows the Sapphire to reach desired temperatures much quicker and work with the compressor to keep temperature levels steady and comfortable all year round. There is also a polymeric air filter that removes any harmful airborne materials, such as dust, dirt, debris, dander, and more.

The Sapphire Is Highly Efficient

Heightened efficiency is one of the Sapphire system’s main calling cards. Mini split systems are already much more efficient than other HVAC alternatives such as central ducted systems and window air conditioners, and the Sapphire stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Mini split efficiency is measured by Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) ratings. The Sapphire’s SEER rating goes as high as 38 while the EER rating is up to 15.3. Sapphire systems also have the Energy Star seal, meaning that they meet strict efficiency standards outlined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy.

Sapphire mini splits also use R-410a refrigerant, which is much more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly than the standard R22 refrigerant. The efficiency of a Sapphire mini split system helps reduce your energy consumption, which leads to significantly lower energy bills. A Sapphire system not only helps the environment but your wallet too!

Heightened efficiency leads to a more comfortable indoor environment. The Sapphire utilizes GREE’s patented “I FEEL” technology, 4-way adjustable air flow, a 7-speed fan, and 180 degrees of vertical air supply to eliminate any temperature inconsistencies and cold spots.

Smart Technologies

Sapphire mini split systems also utilize smart technologies to provide an enhanced heating and cooling experience. These systems can be connected to a Wi-Fi network and controlled from your smartphone with the GREE app. This allows you to adjust the temperature when you’re away from home!

From the app, you can also program and schedule temperature cycles that decrease and increase temperature or power when necessary. For example, you can activate a “sleep cycle” that decreases temperature and noise to automatically turn on each night.

Sapphire systems are also pairable with smart thermostats that give homeowners even more control over temperature, humidity, airflow, and more. Their intelligent defrost feature helps prevent any ice or moisture buildup and Sapphire mini splits also run self-diagnostics in the event of any malfunctions.
