I am shopping around for a multi head mini split air conditioner and I notice mini split warehouse dot com is one of our sponsors. Does anyone here know the sponsors member name?
Any advice or discount codes/coupons would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
heres a few frosty pics for your viewing pleasure

Nice bud porno!
So... I've used the splits before in my home.
I was happy with them during the summer months when they were in cooling mode... but they suck at heating. I found that when the temps fell below 45ish, the heating started falling way off. When the temps drooped lower, it was completely pointless to run it.
If you plan on getting heat out of it when the temps drop, you'll be disappointed.

I can't say that I would recommend a model. Mine was a Panasonic brand, but it was in a rental and not one I selected. It did do a fine job of cooling.
I do love the idea of using a split in a grow. You really separate things much better that way with the waste head drawn far from the grow area. I use a small window AC unit in my shed... but the grow area is quite small (5'xx10') and doesn't need the cooling potential of a split... not to mention that it's significantly cheaper.

Yes, we are a sponsor. We can offer discounts based upon your payment method. For instance cash will get you 3% off and bypass taxes. You can visit our website, and feel free to give us a call. We have a category dedicated to indoor gardens, all the units are designed to cool even if outdoor temps are as low as 5F.

Your calculation for btu requirements is 3.14 btu per watt (example 4000 watts x 3.14= 12,560 btu). This example we would recommend you use a 18000 btu, since a 12000 btu would be slightly too small. Be sure to round up on your calcs.

ClimateControl..... how do your units generate heat? Is it from a heating coil/element, or do they use the AC pump?
In my experience, the ones that create heat from the heat pump are less than useful when the temps drop into the 40's(f) and below.
Can you give us some info on the performance of your units at that temperature range?
I see lots of stunning reviews on your website reporting the cooling performance... but none that address it's heating ability.

Thanks!

Honestly, I have never had anybody be concerned about Heating a indoor garden, considering the lights create heat. I would say visit the link I provided and check out the specifications for the units in that category. They not only cool when outdoor temps are as low as 5F, but they also heat when outdoor temps are that low.

I realize it's not a common issue... but if I'm buying a unit, I want to know how it works in all advertised scenarios.... so I'll pose my question again....
"how do your units generate heat? Is it from a heating coil/element, or do they use the AC pump?"
I, personally, have no real use for heating as I live in a very warm climate (and you thought Tampa was hot...), but I imagine that many members live in significantly lower temperature climates and would often have need for heat rather than cooling.

Thanks!

Got it... Thanks.
I see upon further investigation that the Specifications PDF includes the exact information I was looking for.... sorry to be lazy.

This is SO much better than my older Panasonic model that did nothing at those temps. I Wonder why.

Love your SEER numbers overall. I was looking at your product line and I like the units.

Thanks!

I disagree with you.

Some people are rethinking the typical central heating system commonly used in homes. The challenge with central heating systems is getting the heated air to all the rooms when much is lost as it is dispersed through the ductwork. Putting the heat right where it is needed with ductless mini-split heating units throughout the home sounds like the ideal solution, and for many it is the best option.

Nothing beats ductless mini-split heating for the custom control to heat individual rooms or zones to a preferred comfort level. If you have some family members that like a warm bedroom and others that prefer it cooler, these systems are the way to go. The energy savings you’ll experience is an important advantage as it is attained in multiple ways. First, you won’t lose heat through ductwork. Second, you can reduce the heat in unused rooms more easily. Another advantage of ductless mini-split heating is the easy installation that is less invasive to your home than other systems.

So many flaws with that argument. For starters a mini split still won't produce heat in all ambient conditions. They cost more per btu of heat than gas/oil. You lose the ability to run a filterbox or integrated humidity control. You need to add another piece of equipment to account for make-up air requirements. Ductless systems will NEVER replace ducted. They are an awesome tool but far from a replacement.

They use a reversing valve. The indoor evaporator coil becomes the condenser and vice versa, you cool the outside air and it uses the magic of refrigeration to heat your indoor coil.
