Can I Buy Different Pre-Charged Line Set Lengths for the MRCOOL DIY? - Ask the Expert Episode 149

The MRCOOL DIY Ductless Mini Split system allows the home owner a choice in heating and cooling their home. So, we often get asked specifically about the length of line set options.

Video Script:

Today's question: Can I buy a pre-charged line set in different lengths for the MRCOOL DIY? The simple answer is no, you cannot. There is only one length for the DIY, but if you need a different length line set, you can get those, they just won't be pre-charged. The DIY Unit comes with a 25-foot line set, so if you need something other than that, you should check out other MRCOOL ductless mini splits.

    Can you trim the line set? Would you have to recharge it? Is the charge in the line set or the outdoor unit?

    On the MRCOOL DIY, you cannot trim the line set. The system does not require charging to complete installation. The condenser and the lines are pre-charged.

    I only need 10 feet of line. Since I can not order shorter than 25 feet what is the best way to handle the excess. And 2nd does having more than is needed effect the efficiency? Thank you for your help, Pat

    For excess DIY line, you can loosely coil the excess and store it nearby. So long as the system is charged properly for the amount of line being used, efficiency should not be significantly impacted.

    Can you connect 2 16 ft sets of line?

    For a normal line, yes. However, you cannot connect together two of the MRCOOL DIY lines. Also, all the DIY lines are 25'.
