    in indonesia, u can get ac for just around 400 usd and the cost for installing them is only 68 bucks

  • t0nito

    Many single split systems instead of a multi split system isn't such a bad idea, at least if something goes wrong with the outdoor unit you just lose AC in one room instead of the whole house.

    It's not illegal in USA to fit it yourself then? in the EU you need to be certified to handle "F-Gas". Installing it yourself would get you a nice big fine and also invalidate your warranty.

    As a professional from the UK where we have proper regulations on installing AC this is just typical of what everyone expects from the USA. Two complete goons making mistake after mistake. "Why is this pipe connection bigger" "oh thats to link two units together" what! Really! Hcfc's are the second most harmful thing to the atmosphere so when you fuck this up and the gas leaks out you are causing huge damage. In the UK an ac supplier won't even sell you a unit unless you are qualified. The best thing about this is he will have to call a pro when the compressor fails in a few months

    • Pyared

      They're Canadian. And from an Australian perspective, I've found English tradies to be completely clueless and stuck in the past. You guys cant even get hot and cold water running out of a single tap!

  • George

    It's crazy to see someone install a/c in their house. I live in AZ where it gets to 115 f and its mandatory for a house to have a/c when built

    • Alex Strömberg

      Here in Sweden like 98% of houses don't have ac. But more or less all houses have really good heating.

  • T2Master01

    Was linus trying to argue the cost of this advertisement campaign to get a free air conditioner (plus installation) and he managed to haggle down to just helping the installation? Lol

  • Ryan Keller
    Ryan Keller

    O.k. why didn't you just go with an HVAC integrated AC? There is actual servo controlled dampeners you can install to route it to whatever room you need it with as many zones as you want. This would have been a lot more simple and would have been cleaner on the side of your house.

    • TechnoBeatz Idfd

      That's what he was quoted originally, central air conditioning is expensive and inefficient not to mention much more labour intensive than split type units.

  • Blaise DeRoberts

    Please don't follow this man's advice for installing a split system. 1) you must not mix the wire and refrigerant lines' they must corespond ( for example the "A" spot in the wire diagram must go to the cassette with the refrigerant lines' that go to "A" on the refrigerant port side 2) you can't splice the the wire going from cassette to condenser 3) must be mounted at least 8" off the ground to allow for the defrost mode since it's a heat pump 4) refrigerant lines' must be torched to a certain speck ( for example 1/4" Lineset must be torched between 11 to 13 ft pounds) Long story short get a professional and buy a mitsubishi split system if you are going to install anything.

    • TechnoBeatz Idfd
      TechnoBeatz Idfd

      Yeah, Linus is most likely going to have to get a hvac company to fix his mistakes..

  • DesertFox

  • Vanessa Delisle
    Vanessa Delisle

    Ok so you're gonna need to put your condenser higher as its gonna freeze and defrost many times in the winter, its going to make a lot of ice, that will put pressure on the coil and burst it open ! ( For thermo-pump only and in a cold climate) The bigger succion is not to link multiple the condensers together. Its in case you don't use all of the exits ont the condenser and put a bigger evaporator instead

    Why can't the cassettes get their power from elsewhere inside the house?

    • TechnoBeatz Idfd
      TechnoBeatz Idfd

      As for power in general they can but it has to be it's own supply. They must have a signal cable ran from the outdoor to the indoor to actually tell the outdoor unit to start to cool/heat.

    Line Hide would help "hide" the line set. DUCT strip also works well for communication wire.

  • acrprmann

    DIY... I love it. I make more if you buy it online and attempt the install.


    Here in the USA, by the looks of it. you can't work under another person certification. Under EPA rules & Regulations. Which can get your self into trouble and face heavy fines.and the company hired.

    To clarify you cannot link these units together, the bottom port on the mini splits is bigger for a larger primary indoor unit not to allow for twinning.

    I do this for a living, normally in australia the plumbers install (me) and the electrician just hooks up the power.

    25k for a mini split install?! Lol. Who quoted you that? Also, it really isn’t DIY if you have an electrician there helping you.

    • TechnoBeatz Idfd

      Wasn't for a mini split install, he would've been quoted for centralised heating and cooling which is entirely different and far more expensive

      More expensive and that is what the hvac company quoted him to begin with

  • bharvey2010

    If working in HVAC has taught me anything, its that DIY kits like this are great for our business lol! Everyone thinks they can do it, right up until their flares are leaking or they have communication issues between the condenser and the indoor unit. That couple thousand dollars all of a sudden turns in to a service call and many more thousands lol. Fine by me!

    • TechnoBeatz Idfd
      TechnoBeatz Idfd
