Why is the MrCool Line Guard Only Twelve Feet Long? - Ask the Expert Episode 225

Today's question is from John P. Kramer. "Hey Dan, why do you sell the MrCool Line Guard in a twelve-foot length when the line set for a MrCool mini split is a minimum of sixteen feet?"

Well, for one we sell the MrCool Line Guard in twelve foot increments because that's how we get it from the manufacturer. Two, you have to remember that the MrCool Line Guard is not just for the MrCool DIY, but it's for any mini split. A lot of mini split installations are not going to have line sets that are longer than twelve feet. In a lot of cases you just have the air handler inside and you're just going to go directly outside to the condenser.

If you're going to get a DIY and you want to cover every inch of the line then you may need more than one Line Guard set.

    The DIY is do-it-yourself. The Advantage is not.

    I want to cool & heat 2 adjacent small shops (320sqft & 640 sqft). Should I buy 2 separate single head units or 1 multi zone unit? Pros & cons of each?

    The big advantage of a multi-zone is you only need to install and wire a single outside condenser. The advantage of have two separate systems is that if one goes down, you don't lose all your conditioned air production.

    How does the self-clean feature on mrcool work? What does it do?. Is there additional maintenance for the coil and fan blades
    Other than cleaning the filter regularly?

    The self-clean feature is an internal operation that is supposed to remove dirt and dust from the internal coil. It is always a good idea to have the interior air handler professionally cleaned once per year.

    The maximum length of a DIY line set is 25 feet long. However, you can buy a coupler kit that will allow you to connect two 25 foot line sets together. You could also connect a 25 foot line and a 16 foot line, or two 16 foot lines.
