Seriously, _how_ do you buy hvac equipment for diy?
I’ve read https://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/article/how-to-buy-a-ductless-minisplit, and that’s a great (if outdated) article on WHAT to buy, but not how to buy. I’ve called a few supply houses in my area and they’ve both told me that they only sell to licensed contractors.
Do I need to keep calling around? Do I need to call Mitsubishi directly? Am I forced to buy online from a retailer like hvacdirect or amazon? I’m really hoping to avoid the big box stores for this.
What accessories do I need? Should I buy the indoor unit and outdoor unit as a set, or separately?
