Pioneer Minisplit Review
SO I was searching for a heat source for my garage.
Detached, 24×36 ‘Grossmans Garage’ for anyone old enough to remember what that is.
It is for intermittent use, but I wanted to establish a minimum temp to keep down condensation and make it more comfortable when I go to get some work done
Last season I modded a 220 volt heater I already owned to keep it above 40F and it worked well, ran little as it will naturally stay there on all but the very coldest days. Did make the meter spin
So, cost is an object, since ultimate efficiency must be tempered to actual energy used
I came across this unit:
It is not state of the art efficient, but it is cheaper than all the brand names
A key feature that I thought would be interesting to some here as it comes up with partial use structures. It has an ‘Away from Home’ key[AH] that sets it to 46 degrees F
So, will it last?
We shall see, and I will update good or bad.
This is the 7th mini split I have self installed and the 2nd that I have done all aspects of.
