Product Spotlight: Why We Love Mitsubishi Mini Split Systems
Mitsubishi is a gold standard in the electronic industry, as their appliances and products are top-notch. Their ductless mini splits live up to this lofty reputation, which is why we love them here at ComfortUp. All their systems use their patented Zoned Comfort Solutions and connect an outdoor condenser to one or more indoor ductless air handling units, providing an enhanced heating and cooling experience in any commercial or residential building.

One reason we love Mitsubishi mini split systems so much is their incorporation of smart technologies. When connected to a Wi-Fi network, Mitsubishi mini splits can be controlled remotely through a smartphone application. This gives owners complete control over their system no matter where they are! The application also shows in-depth data about your room environment such as humidity levels. Mitsubishi mini splits can also be paired with smart thermostats such as the Honeywell D6 for a similar experience.
Mitsubishi systems also incorporate sensors that detect when someone enters or exits an area. Turning on and off when necessary not only increases your system’s efficiency, but the reduced stress helps extend its life cycle. They also use thermal scanning to detect any hot or cold spots and temperature imbalances in the room. If any are detected, they adjust airflow accordingly.
Mitsubishi mini splits are loved for their high efficiency levels, which is a major component of their Zoned Comfort Solutions. Mini split efficiency is measured through SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio), and a higher SEER rating means a higher operating efficiency. The minimum SEER rating is 13, and Mitsubishi mini splits are rated as high as 30.5! They are also built with an advanced energy-saving processor to increase efficiency.
Ductwork directly contributes to energy waste, as air losses throughout the ductwork is responsible for about 30% of energy consumed. Since Mitsubishi split systems do not require the elaborate ductwork of older central HVAC systems, they virtually eliminate this lost and wasted energy. In fact, they operate roughly 40% more efficiently than central ducted systems! When you choose an efficient Mitsubishi mini split, you will also notice immediate savings on your energy bill.
Different Series and Mini Split Models Available
Mitsubishi offers a variety of different mini split systems and types to meet the needs of any customer. Their indoor air handling units include wall-mounted, floor-mounted horizontal ducted, ceiling cassette, and ducted air handler options. Each of these provide different functional and aesthetic benefits while offering unrivaled heating and cooling comfort.
Mitsubishi mini splits are also available in single- and multi-zone systems. A single-zone system consists of one outdoor unit connected to one indoor unit, while a multi-zone system consists of one outdoor unit connected to multiple indoor units.
Single-zone systems are great for heating one room or area only, and they can coexist with other types of HVAC systems. Multi-zone mini split systems allow homeowners to control each “zone” without impacting the others. In a multi-zone system, Mitsubishi allows homeowners to mix and match different indoor types. This means you could have a ceiling cassette system in one room and a wall mounted mini split in another, both connected to the same outdoor unit.
Some of our best-selling Mitsubishi systems are the M Series, Mr. Slim Series, and MXZ Series. The M Series works best in small- to medium-sized rooms and is available in wall-mounted, cassette, or compact floor versions. Available in wall-mounted, ceiling suspended, and ceiling concealed models, Mr. Slim systems are highly efficient, quiet, inconspicuous, and come with advanced controls. MXZ models are perfect for anybody seeking a highly efficient multi-zone system, and they can feature up to eight indoor units.
Finally, Mitsubishi mini splits are very reasonably priced. Installing ductwork in a home or commercial building is very costly and time-consuming. The cost of a Mitsubishi mini split varies, depending on factors such as size, efficiency, number of units, and features, but the unit and installation cost will likely be cheaper than a ducted system.
It goes without saying that an efficient Mitsubishi mini split with a higher SEER rating will be more expensive than other options, but the reduced cost of your energy bill in the short and long term helps to balance the scales, and it is well worth the investment.
