How to Optimize the Energy Efficiency of Mitsubishi Heat Pumps
I had a Mitsubishi Minisplit system installed back in July, for both the purpose of adding AC to my house (crank out windows means no AC’s) and to supplement/replace my forced hot water system that was woefully undersized for the house.
I have asked the installer company about it and they suggested playing with the “Only heat pump” settings, the “Delay” and the “Only backup” settings, as well as the ceiling fan speeds.
Recently I also discovered that the 36K unit even when off draws 2A (measured on amp clamp meter) and the 30k draws between 0.5-1A on that same meter. I know power factor is probably in play so it’s not a true 2A but that’s still a large amount of power.
