18,000 BTU Mini Split Air Conditioners

Mini Split Air Conditioners: Eco-Friendly Cooling

Air conditioning systems have been a source of frustration for environmentalists since their inception. Refrigerants like R-22 destroy the ozone layer, leave lasting contaminants in the air and water, and are difficult to safely destroy after use. Science has risen to this challenge, however, creating R-410a, a new, highly pressurized refrigerant that lacks many of the severe impacts of its predecessors. R-410a's increased operating pressure makes it incompatible with older hardware, however, and that required the development of a new system to employ it, namely the Mini Split air conditioner.

These two ductless mini split units both bear an 18,000 BTU heating and cooling capacity, air filtration and de-humidification capabilities, Energy Star approval, and a five-year warranty on their air compressors, but their operating specifications differ slightly. First, the Shinco unit is more energy efficient, carrying an 18 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) score as opposed to the Air-Con's 13, due primarily to Shinco's integration of a power inverter to the air compressor. Both are capable of heating or cooling, but the Shinco's output can comfortably reach up to 1,000 square feet, as opposed to the Air-Con's coverage of 850 square feet.

The Air-Con Mini Split AC is not without its advantages, however. The Air-Con's higher power consumption is directed to a stronger air flow, allowing it to heat or cool almost seventy percent faster than the Shinco unit -- meaning your home gets to the temperature you want in less time. In addition, the Air-Con's installation kit comes with twenty-five feet of piping, allowing for an easier and more convenient installation as compared to the Shinco's ten feet of piping. Finally, aside from the compressor, the Air-Con unit bears a two-year warranty as opposed to Shinco's single year.

Regardless of which unit your choose, Mini Split technology will increase your energy efficiency, resulting in a positive impact on the environment AND your budget.
