Energy Star Recipient

Searching for a highly efficient and environmentally friendly, Energy Star heating and air conditioning system in Hickory? The ductless mini split AC system by Mitsubishi is an industry leader for clean and cool comfort in your home or business. Naming Mitsubishi Electric’s systems as the Most Efficient of 2015, the EPA’s Energy Star division explains this designation:

"Energy Star designation recognizes the most efficient products among those that qualify for the ENERGY STAR program. These exceptional central air conditioners and air-source heat pumps represent the leading edge in energy efficient products this year."


We have had our Mitsubishi unit for over one year, and we LOVE it. Canella has been a great company to work, always calls ahead and arrives on time. The employees have always been professional and knowledgeable. The free one-year maintenance is an amazing bonus! The unit itself has been amazing. We added an addition onto our house and there was no possible way to route our existing central system into the room. It works so great. It keeps the room a very comfortable even temperature all the time and easily matches the rest of the home so there is no noticeable temperature change between the rooms. Occasionally my husband will put it low to cool off, and it rapidly cools the room to the new setting. Our only regret is that we didn't go with this sort of unit sooner on a different part of the house!

High Efficiency

Ductless heating and air conditioning is the right solution for new home additions or other rooms without ductwork. The indoor unit is either mounted on the ceiling or wall. It connects with a small outdoor unit (about ¼ of the size of current outdoor AC compressors) to provide accurate temperatures with the greatest efficiency. Available from .5 to 2 tons in size, these small, powerful units can achieve up to a 26 SEER rating.

Accurate Temperature Control

Without ductwork, the Mitsubishi ductless air conditioning unit allows you to cool more than one zone by placing multiple indoor units (up to 4) in various rooms. This zoned cooling setup allows for accurate temperature control for each room that is cooled, which makes your indoor environment more comfortable. You no longer need to lose efficiency by cooling rooms that are not used, which saves on energy bills and consumption. HSPF and SEER ratings are the highest in the industry with ductless mini-split units.

Multiple Ideal Locations

Mitsubishi mini-split heat pumps and air conditioners can be used in home additions that wouldn't have room for ductwork. They are the perfect solution for maximum temperature control and efficiency.
Other areas that are ideal for a ductless mini-split system include garages that have been converted to playrooms or living rooms, basement rooms, sunrooms, and upstairs bedrooms. If you enjoy cooler temperatures in the master bedroom during summer, it’s a great energy saver. These rooms can by cooled and heated independently from the rest of the house, so you will not need costly ductwork or experience inefficient heating or cooling. Using Inverter-driven compressor technology, the ductless mini-split AC systems increase energy savings by only using the specific energy that is necessary to cool completely or heat the individual room that the indoor unit is located.

Ductless Mini-Split Energy Savings

The cost saving abilities are built in from the advanced technology that is utilized in a ductless mini-split system. Energy loss will not be experienced from ductwork since there aren’t any ducts in place. Typical central air conditioning systems lose energy through holes, leaks and duct connections that do not fit correctly. More than 30% of energy loss comes from those areas, according to the Department of Energy. Homeowners do not need to worry about those issues with the ductless mini-split AC system. Tax credits and rebates on utilities may be available for the year that the unit was installed, via the Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit.

Cleaner Air

An anti-allergen filter comes with the Mitsubishi ductless systems to provide you with cleaner air. ENERGY STAR® guidelines are followed so that the systems stay energy efficient, as regulated by the U.S. Federal Government. The system is set up with multi-stage filtration so your indoor air quality will improve significantly with less pollen, dust, allergens and other small pollutants in the air. Your total carbon output is also reduced, and an environmentally friendly refrigerant is used to keep the environment safe and clean. This refrigerant is called R410A and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP).

Installation Is A Breeze

Installations are much faster and easier with a mini-split ductless heat pump and AC system since there is no ductwork involved. You can experience clean heating and cooling very quickly.

That being said, it is important to use a licensed contractor. Having a company like Canella Heating and Air install your system can ensure that it is done right. Proper installation is necessary to enjoy all the benefits of the mini-split ductless air conditioner. Energy efficiency, clean air, and zoned temperature control can only be achieved with the correct installation in each room. Beware of cut-rate wholesalers that don’t include installation. Once you receive the product, you'll be left to find your own contractor or to do it yourself. This can be pretty risky. The system itself may be under warranty, but the installation may not be. Faulty installation can make your warranty null and void.

Another important reason to have a licensed contractor like Canella install your unit is safety. Safety of the installer and safe operation of the system after installation is of utmost importance.

As a Mitsubishi Electric Diamond™ Contractor, Canella Heating and Air Conditioning provides professional, high-quality installation and services with our certified and trained service team. The parts and compressor warranty increases from 5 to 12 years if your Mitsubishi Electric ductless mini-split is installed by our service team.
