It's the hot new thing in heating! Mitsubishi Electric has redefined the heat pump, enhancing their INVERTER-driven heat pumps with advanced Hyper-Heating INVERTER(H2i®) technology for year-round comfort in a single system. These innovative heat pumps can operate effectively to deliver toasty warm comfort at outdoor temperatures well below zero.
This Mr. Slim Hyper Heat inverter-driven wall-mounted ductless system is ideal for conditioning bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, garages, basements, kitchens, bonus rooms, out buildings, and more. These ultra-efficient Hyper Heat systems are also powerful and ideal for extreme climates, providing close to full-capacity heating at ambient temperatures as low as 5°F. MUZ-FE/MSZ-FE systems are Energy Star rated, With this system having a cooling capacity of 18,000 BTU, a heating capacity of 21,600 BTU, and a 20.2 SEER.
The MUZ-FE/MSZ-FE systems also offer the optional wireless, RFI-RedLINK™ enabled, full-function wall mount controller, allowing homeowners to control their unit from a remote PC, smartphone or tablet (MHK1 sold separately). If you prefer a standard, fully wired and functioning wall mount control, this system also works with the PAR-32MAA-J (sold separately and requires MAC-333IF).
The M-Series INVERTER-driven compressor and linear expansion valve (LEV) works with the system's sophisticated electronic controls to detect temperature changes in a room or zone, automatically changing speeds to adjust for precise capacity and temperature control.
The indoor units use a sophisticated multiple filtration system to ensure clean, healthy air throughout the rooms/zones they condition. The Hybrid Catechin washable pre-filter captures dust and eliminates odors, while the Blue Enzyme washable filter uses an enzyme catalyst to capture and eliminate allergens, germs, bacteria, and viruses.
Mr. Slim Indoor Units operate at very low sounds levels (19-34 decibels). According to a study performed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Mr. Slim Indoor Units are quieter than a human whisper (30 decibels) at low speed.
Rare Earth Magnet Rotor
Mr. Slim MSZ-FE Series H2i units feature compressors with a rare earth magnet rotor, which increases the magnetic flux and reduces the compressor's energy consumption, while producing more heat.

How much heat can this really generate?
We know a lot of people are interested in using ductless splits as their year-round system, and the Mitsubishi Hyper Heat series is among the best in providing heating capability even at very low temperatures. This system is capable of heating a 750 sq foot space at fully 100% capacity even at 5°F. At negative 13°F, this system can still provide heat at 73% capacity. This system performs extremely well in cold environments, with performance in heating mode of -13°F to 75°F and in cooling mode from 14°F to 115°F.
Which line set kit do I need?
This system uses (1) 3/8" x 5/8" line set. These are sold separately, and you can choose from our 15 ft, 25 ft, 35 ft, 50 ft, and 75 ft lengths. The length needed depends on the needs of your project and how you will set up the system (distance from outdoor condenser to indoor air handler).
Can I install this myself?
While installation of a ductless split is much easier than a central air system, it's still much more advanced than installing a window unit or portable. Furthermore, the manufacturer warranty is only valid if a licensed professional does the installation. So while it is possible to do the installation yourself, we strongly recommend you hire an HVAC professional in your area.
Is this backed by a warranty?
Yes, it comes fully backed by a manufacturer's warranty (click here for more details), and ComfortUp is an authorized online seller of these systems. Our Customer Care Team will provide assistance should you ever need to file a warranty claim with the manufacturer. Please be aware that only systems that are installed by a licensed HVAC contractor are backed by the warranty. Proof of licensed installation is required. The receipt/invoice from your contractor should be sufficient.
