Which Brand of Ductless Split Systems is the Most Reliable?

Whether you need to replace an old, inefficient HVAC system or looking to install a new, reliable ductless split system, you want the best option possible. With so many choices out there, it is natural to be confused about which one to choose from.
You need to consider many factors when looking for a ductless split system, from the compressor type to the warranty, wattage/tonnage, Energy Star certifications, and more. Let’s take a look at some of the best brands.

Ductless Split System

Best Ductless Split Systems

Mitsubishi Electric

Mitsubishi Electric by far, is one of the most popular brands out there in the market. One can find some of the most energy and cost-efficient ductless split systems from Mitsubishi Electric. Most of this brand’s split systems are Energy Star-certified; this means that they meet stringent energy efficiency standards.
As far as reliability is concerned, Mitsubishi Electric is known for their extended warranty periods during which the manufacturer offers impeccable support. With purchase, you get a 7-year manufacturer guarantee on the compressor and a 5-year parts warranty along with the option to extend both warranties.

Lennox

Another excellent brand of ductless split systems is Lennox. These offer a much quieter cooling solution. Regardless of the type of HVAC a person purchase. One can expect high reliability and cost-efficiency over the long run with Lennox ductless split systems.
Just like Mitsubishi, Lennox also offers some of the best warranties in the market. However, we have found that sometimes the customer service may not be top-notch. There are many different warranty coverages a person can choose from, with the most common choice being a 7-year initial compressor warranty along with a 5-year parts warranty. However, you can also purchase an additional 12-year warranty for split systems.

Carrier

Carrier is one of the more expensive options in the market. They are also known for premium products and outstanding customer service. Ductless split systems from Carrier are often very reliable, but keep in mind that you might not find replacement parts for them easily.
However, Carrier offers a warranty with purchase. There are two options to choose from, a 5-year compressor warranty with a 1-year parts warranty or a 5-year compressor warranty and a 10-year parts warranty. If a person chooses additional protection through an extended warranty, this will also increase their financial investment.

Napoleon

Napoleon is a Canadian HVAC company and their ductless split systems are known for their durability and longevity. Napoleon offers very affordable systems as well. However, to ensure durability and reliability, you will need to invest in regular maintenance.
The low price of their systems is reflected in the overall quality. Without proper care, these systems may not be as reliable as the other brands. Napoleon does offer a warranty for up to 5 years (extendable to 15 years) when it comes to compressors and a 10-year warranty on parts.

    We purchased a gas insert for our home from the Cozy Comfort Plus. The whole process was super smooth and easy from the very beginning. Brian was very knowledgeable and professional. He patiently guided us through different options we had. The installation crew were also super friendly but at the same time professional and serious about their work.
    I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a satisfactory experience.

    My furnace broke mid February and from the first call Cozy Comfort Plus exceeded my expectations and it was the best customer service experience I've had in a very long time. They had someone here within two hours who very knowledgeable and gave me several options. I ended up deciding to replace my furnace and they had it done the next day. From my first contact on the phone, to the technician to the installation staff they were all professional, responsive and truly a pleasure to work with. In a little over 24 hours the heat was back on and at a very fair price.

    I cannot recommend them highly enough as it's a stressful time when your furnace goes mid February. They even submitted the rebates before I had a chance to call them the next day!! All I can say is WOW.
