Phantom Load – Ductless Minisplit
I have an LG ductless minisplit system. The condenser is an LG LMU480HV. There are 8 indoor units (6 wall units, 2 ceiling mounts) connected to the condenser. The system was installed and powered up in January 2017.
I am monitoring the power usage of the minisplit system and even when all of the indoor units are turned off, which is going to happend during the shoulder seasons – the system is still consuming 0.489 kw. Doesn’t seem like much, but that’s about $36/month without it being used. Is there something that can be done about this? Do centrally ducted heat pump systems do the same?
Thanks for any help.
