Installing My Own Mini-Split Heat Pump, DIY

Let’s stay cool this summer, and warm in the winter. This is a DIY Mr. Cool mini-split heat pump. It will save me tons of money $$$ by installing this myself. No need to hire HVAC professionals. This is a unique model because the line set comes sealed from the factory. No special HVAC tools needed. This means I don’t need gauges, vacuum pumps, nitrogen, tanks, or even a flaring tool. You will see just how easy this is in this video.

I’m replacing a 7-year old heat pump. It worked well for about 2 years, but was constantly breaking after that. Sometimes it would sit broken for a year while I saved up the money to hire professional HVAC companies to come in and fix the problem. In my area, just getting a company to come take a look at the broken system requires over $500 USD upfront. In total, I’ve spent over $5k USD on this broken heat pump. This is why I’m so thrilled that Mr. Cool has come out with a line of heat pumps that are designed specifically for DIY installations.

This is my upstairs A/C that I replaced last spring with a 3 phase straight cool condenser (because it was free) that I hacked the VFD into. It ran just fine all simmer long and I had originally planned on doing the heat pump modification once the summer ended. Well, it’s Jan 6th and I’m…
