How do I clean the filters in my Mitsubishi Electric ductless mini-split?
Here's how you clean the air filters in your ductless mini-split heat pump or air conditioner: 1. open the front panel and lock it into place in the open position; 2. remove the blue plastic air filter elements; 3. Remove the smaller allergen filters so you can clean them separately; 4. clean both filter elements with water and a mild detergent; 5. dry and replace the air filters; 6. close and lock the cover by pressing down on the ends and the middle of the cover until you hear it snap back into the locked position.

Here in the Greater Boston area, ductless heating and cooling in a single zone configuration, fully installed and ready to turn on starts at $3500, and the price goes up from there depending on a number of factors.Buyer Beware
You may have found websites that claim it costs $1867 to purchase a new ductless mini split, and $159 to have it professionally installed. As you can imagine, that price is not only the cheapest, least efficient unit on the market, but I don't know a contractor worth allowing into your home who would charge that little for labor. Proceed with caution.

But, what can a homeowner expect to pay for this modern, convenient heating and air conditioning solution in the greater Boston area?
Ductless mini-split technology has been around for more than 50 years, but has only been available to New England homeowners for about thirty years.
In Japan, ductless accounts for 90% of all HVAC systems sold, and more than 80% in Europe.
Unfamiliarity with ductless technology and spotty access to educational information has slowed the growth of ductless acceptance in the United States, but the efficiency of ductless has caused major utility companies, government agencies and homeowners to take notice.
The financial incentives associated with ductless technology have made it one of the fastest growing home comfort solutions for residential heat pump and residential air conditioning replacements.
So, how much can you expect to pay to have a Mitsubishi ductless system installed in your home? Of course I'm going to tell you, it depends.
