How Many Line Sets Fit Into a MrCool Line Guard? - Ask the Expert Episode 236

Today's question is from Eric. "Hey Dan, how many line sets fit in a single MrCool Line Guard?"

So, he's talking about the MrCool Line Guard, which is a line set cover kit for your ductless mini split. Though they are from MrCool, they could work for any ductless mini split. If you get a Mitsubishi, a Gree, or Daikin, you can get a MrCool Line Guard and it's fine.

It's just a plastic cover that goes outside your house. You put it on the outside wall where the line set comes out. The lines go out, you cover them and it looks neat. So how many line sets can go into a MrCool Line Guard?

One. Just one. Each MrCool Line Guard line set cover kit is designed to work with one single zone mini split. If you've got a multi zone mini split unit then you will need to get more.

You could try to put more than one line set in the MrCool Line Guard, but I don't think it would work very well. It would probably not be very effective.

Any more questions? Just ask in the comments below.

    Do you have to use the line gaurds or can you run them in any other type of plastic like say a gutter downspout?

    The Line Guards are MRCOOL's line set covers specifically designed for their own products, but other solutions do work. The only caveat with a gutter downspout I can see is that it would not be easy to perform maintenance on the line if it requires maintenance.

    Hey Dan,

    What is the best air cleaner to pair with the Mr Cool Universal 2-3 ton air handler?

    There really is no best, just whatever you choose that is not too restrictive- nothing higher than say a MERV 8. The metal mesh filter that comes with the unit is adequate.
