MrCool DIY Puts Safety First
Installing a conventional ductless mini-split heat pump is not terribly difficult for a trained HVAC technician, but it isn’t something your typical homeowner can do by themselves without a good bit of instruction. Since we didn’t want people accidentally spraying coolant into their eyes while installing the MrCool DIY, safety was a priority during the design phase.
So, how exactly is the MrCool DIY safe for amateur installation?
The key component is the pre-charged 410 quick connect line sets. MrCool determined early on in the design process that dealing with typical air conditioner coolant would be a problem for the average amateur installer. Our team built the quick connect line sets to circumvent the issue altogether. These line sets are as simple and safe as they could be. If you can handle basic tools, you can put the MrCool DIY together without worrying about the danger of leaking coolant all over the place.
Which is a really good thing!
The last thing any dedicated DIY’er wants is to install a ductless mini-split heat pump and find out its leaking coolant. Not only would this affect operating efficiency, it’s not the safest situation in the world.
