MrCool, Is It Really Actually DIY?

People send me all sorts of questions via the Internets. One big question that keeps coming up is about the MrCool DIY. DIY stands for do-it-yourself. My first idea was to call it the MrCool Easy-To-Install-At-Home-By-Yourself-Or-Maybe-With-A-Friend, but the marketing department shot down that idea. Apparently, the MrCool ETIAHBYOMWAF is not as catchy as MrCool DIY.

Sorry, I got distracted there. The question is this: “Is the MrCool DIY really easy to install?”

The answer is: YES.

The MrCool DIY is our most unique ductless mini-split heat pump, because our engineers, and me, designed it to be easy for the regular person to install all by themselves. There are a minimum of fiddly parts to worry about, precharged linesets to simplify the coolant connections, and, of course, it’s light for easy handling.

With the MrCool DIY, you really can do it yourself.

I know you’re skeptical. You’re probably thinking, “Gosh, I sometimes screw up microwave popcorn, can I really do this installation myself?” Rest easy, my radioactive friend, because anyone can install the MrCool DIY.

During the design stage, we hired 100 idiots to moron-proof the MrCool DIY. Aside from the one unfortunate fatality, they did great. 99 MrCool DIY ductless mini-split heat pumps were installed in only a few hours. How did we find 100 actual idiots for that test?

Craigslist, duh.
