Innova Heat Pump System
I’ve done a search and was surprised to find nothing on GBA about the Innova 2.0 packaged terminal heat pump.
– Has highest-quality components from Mitsubishi .
– And I’ve been told they cost about $2600 plus a couple hours of simple installation.
Here’s a link to an (Italian) brochure; jump to pg 14 for specs:
So, I’m building an 800 sq ft rental unit downstairs from my house (in San Francisco area). There will be one great room, plus two small bedrooms an a bathroom. I will be insulating and air sealing to the standards I’ve learned on this website. I’ve received three quotes for Mitsubishi ducted and ductless mini-split systems… and all floated right around $15,000. This is for new construction, walls all open.
At that price, I am strongly considering the Innova (or even three of them if I have to), which I can install myself by coring two holes in an exterior wall.
I know there is a lot of controversy about PTHP, so I’d like to put this out to the community. What cons do you see?
