New Mitsubishi FH06NA ductless minisplit

P Ha | Posted in Mechanicals on

searched, couldnt find any info posted here;

looks like there is a new, smaller Mitsubishi Hyper heat [6000btu] available for pre order

seems like this is a good new option for increased flexibility/zoning.

hope that helps

    It doesn't look like this modulates any lower than the 9k btu version, so did they just take the 9k and limit its top output?

    It's probably smaller/cheaper coil &/or compressor on the outdoor unit, and perhaps more subtle engineering tweak on the wall coil.

    The housing dimensions of the FH06 & FH09 head and outdoor units are identical- there may have been a software change to optimally use a smaller/cheaper compressor in the outdoor unit. (That falls under "random speculation" here on my part.)

    The HSPF of both are the same (13.5) , but the SEER of the FH06 is about 8-9% higher (33.1 instead of 30.5):

    On the same web-store the FH06 is $108 cheaper than the FH09, and they claim to have two of the FH06 in stock (as of 2 minutes ago.)

    Ooohh. Shiny. OK that aside, smaller heads or better performing multi heads are somewhat essential to retrofit applications as not every layout can accommodate a single large head effectively. I'm excited to see this trend even if it looks like maybe it's not really new equipment.
