12,000 BTU Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioners

"Environmentally friendly" and "air conditioning" are not phrases traditionally associated with each other in a positive sense, but recent scientific developments have changed that. R-410a, a new refrigerant developed in response to the phasing-out of ozone-depleting R-22, allows for effective home cooling without all of the negative impacts. R-410a is incompatible with the low-pressure devices that used older technology, however, so with it were developed "ductless mini split" air conditioners to employ the refrigerant. Air-Con and Shinco both produce their own versions of the mini split AC, with some similarities as well as key differences.

First, both units offer the same cooling capacity (and heating capacity -- they double as home heating units) at 12,000 BTU, but the Shinco air conditioners do so with a third less power consumption than the Air-Con units. Similarly, the Air-Con's Toshiba air compressor boasts a 13 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating), but the Shinco offers an astounding 18 SEER Hitachi compressor. The final difference in power consumption lay in the Shinco's built-in power inverter, which serves to stabilize operation by minimizing fluctuations in the flow of power to the compressor. The 12,000 BTU Air-Con mini split air condtioner operates on the more conventional standard of AC power, saving on unit cost by opting not to employ the inverter.

Regardless of the differences, both units are strikingly efficient and environmentally friendly as compared to their window-mounted R-22 predecessors. Energy efficiency not only reduces negative impacts to the environment associated with power generation...it reduces negative impacts to your budget, as well. Simply evaluate the mini split air conditioners and decide which one best meets your needs and wants, and you can do your part to improve the world.
