MRCOOL Mini Split Air Conditioner Reviews

Minisplit systems are one of the best ways to cool your whole house. The unit is much smaller than a traditional central air system and makes it a great option in a wide variety of houses and situations.

The technology is fairly simple to understand. A condenser unit is placed in your attic or outside. The condenser coupled with a Co-Pilot controller use refrigeration cycle magic to cool your home.

There are positives and negatives to using a minisplit system and I will try to lay it out here.


{1}. ) Easy to install and requires less maintenace than a central AC system.
{2}. ) Can be installed almost anywhere inside your home.
{3}. ) Can be installed almost anywhere outside of your home.
{4}. ) Small size means lower energy costs than a central AC
{5}. ) Can be installed on new construction with an open attic.


{1}. ) In order to have an energy efficient, dependable system it will cost slightly more than a window unit.
{2}. ) Takes a little longer to cool your home than a central AC.
{3}. ) The units are not available at big box stores and must be purchased online or from a local installer.
{4}. ) When installing an outdoor condenser the installer must make sure it is vented properly for the safety of the inhabitants.

The Advantage Series

The Advantage Series from Mr. COOL are perfect little air conditioners designed specifically for low voltage mini-split systems. They are easy to install, cool your home fast, and best of all, they are eco-friendly!

The Advantage line features a number of different models, offering different sizes and energy savings. The basic model features a 5,000 BTU compressor that can cool rooms up 675 to 275 sq ft up to 20 to 30 degrees F. The larger models provide more BTUs, so you can cool a larger area. There are models from 6,000 to 12,000 BTUs.

How does the Advantage Series work? They are a combination of air conditioner and dehumidifier and start cooling your home as soon as they are plugged in. One of Mr. Cool’s advantages, though, is that they don’t place excess moisture in the air, unlike other dehumidifiers. A 3-speed fan allows you to adjust how quickly and effectively you want to cool your home.

The DIY Smart Series

In the past few years, the demand for these systems has grown due to their ease of installation, reduced cost and energy efficiency. What used to be big and heavy with multiple components has now slowly become compact with a single pre-manufacture box. All that’s left to install on-site is basically a power supply and venting equipment as well as the tubing. What is great about the new mini split systems, is that, you can even install them in your own home. With the right knowledge and equipment, you can have your own system up and running in no time.

However, the DIY market has a few problems. It’s still relatively new and untested equipment, as well as unclear labeling as to what is in the system. What results is a whole batch of incompatible products, so even if you have the correct equipment, you may not have the compatible products to make it all work.

This is why we are here, to help you make the correct decision when it comes to purchasing a mini split system for your home.

How Does a MRCOOL Mini Split System Work?

A mini split system is very similar to a central air system, with a few differences. The most indicative of these differences can be seen in that a mini split system has no heating component. The system is split into two sections: one that takes the air from inside the home and manages the indoor temperature, and one that is responsible for the cooling, taking the heat from the outside air and transferring it into the inside air. A mini split system works best when an ample amount of air is being moved out and pulled in by the unit. It helps to have multiple small, in-wall vents and windows that can contribute to this airflow.

The outside unit has two frequently separate parts: these are the condenser and compressor. The condenser takes the heat from the air and pumps it into either a coil or metal tubing, depending on the system design, and also creates a vacuum. This causes the unit to create a condensation cycle, pumping water to the outside portion of the system to cool it. The compressor is the heart of the system, and is what is directly responsible for the cooling power of the unit itself. It takes the heat that the coil or tubing creates and naturally cools it down before sending it back inside of the home, where the cool air is then kept within the confines of the home.

MR COOL vs. Other AC Brands

Are these energy efficient?

They are energy star rated for efficiency. I don't have the exact details, but since you are running about 1500 watts, I expect you should be able to run it all day and not blow an electric bill through the roof.

Do these come equipped with copper lines or does one supply the lines to the attic then the second unit just uses those lines?

These are designed to use copper lines.

Do they make filter for these units?

I don't know if they make them, but you are going to want to unplug the unit when it is not in use and put it in an area that is not comfortable for veggie or fruit flies to breed.

Are these an old technology?

All mini splits are old technology. The old standard is evap cooling, where you have a large unit outside that uses evap coils that run a little dryer internally and the air that is left behind is vented into the house. That technology has been refined for over 100 years and is very efficient.

Does the Mr. Cool brand have great customer service?

If you are buying one of these, then I am 100% convinced you are going to be extremely happy with your purchase.


So there you have it. The Mr Cool Mini Split is an amazing and top quality product made by an amazing brand. However it does, it is that Mr Cool has put a lot of time, effort, and thought into the design of this unit.
