Opinions on Carrier Brand Minisplits
We had a full HVAC design done for our house retrofit, spec’d with Mitsubishi equip, with Fujitsu as an alternate.
Two ducted units for the downstairs, one ductless for the (much smaller) upstairs level. I believe the Mitsu HyperHeat was the original spec, for CZ3 with no need for any type of backup heat. All individual units, not multi-split.
The HVAC contractor I will likely use was a Mitsubishi dealer, and is now Fujitsu instead. Apparently Fujitsu availability is difficult at the moment, so Carrier was thrown into the mix as an alternative.
Does anyone have experience or opinions about the Carrier ducted and ductless units? It appears that they’re a product of a Carrier/Midea collaboration, but I can’t find much about them for reliability/performance/etc. outside of marketing materials and press releases. It looks like they’re cheaper, which is nice but is less important than performance and reliability for obvious reasons.
If Carrier isn’t going to be a great option, I will push back and find a way to stick with Mitsubishi or Fujitsu instead. I think I can have the Mitsubishi stuff sitting in my driveway in about a week (if I purchase it myself), but the contractor would have to be on-board with that.
