Drill a 3.5" inch hole and feed the air handler line-set through the wall.
Connect the air handler to the heat pump with our quick connect technology.

It’s DIY because there’s no handling of refrigerant. The patent-pending Quick-Connect lines come pre-charged and sealed from the factory with the correct amount of R-410A refrigerant. This means there’s no requirement for an HVAC engineer to vacuum or pressurize the system using specialized equipment. Anyone can now install a heat pump safely, quickly and easily without special tools, equipment or training. Click here to how easy installation is.
We save you money on installation costs.
Our patented pre-charged line sets allow you to install a heat pump yourself with no special tools, equipment or knowledge. Doing it yourself or appointing a local handyman, will cost a fraction (up to 60% less) of what an HVAC engineer will charge.
We save you money on energy costs.
Next-generation air sourced heat pumps harvest outside warmth at -30°C and save energy year-round. It is for this reason that they’re 300-400% efficient. For every dollar they use to run, they can provide three to four dollars worth of energy, saving you up to 70% on your energy costs.
Note: There’s no warranty on labour as this is a DIY product.
MrCool Universal Series can heat effectively below freezing. It can even heat effectively below zero and keep heating effectively down into negative double digits. It can keep a 1500 sf house at 70 degrees in -20 and below.
Once installed they are fully serviceable as with any heat pump and many local independent heat pump companies are happy to service them.
Our DIY systems are ultra-quiet because they were ‘specifically designed’ for strata properties and condos and are inaudible from anywhere within the building.The maximum sound level for the outside compressor(s) – as examples 12K and 36K are close to these min/max values:
1.18K is (58 dBA)
2. 27K is (63 dBA).
It’s rare to run at maximum because once the internal set point has been reached, the compressor will shut down. We can say with certainty that when the compressor only needs to maintain equilibrium, the noise level is considerably less – akin to a quiet whisper.
So we could say the rated range is from a quiet whisper (30dBA) to normal conversation at 3 feet (60 dBA).
Homes are generally a set distance apart from one another. If we say 24 feet for easy math – we can apply the inverse square law as follows:
18K = dBA (58 – 18) = 40 dBA (sound of a quiet refrigerator)
27K = dBA (63 – 18) = 45 dBA (faint rainfall)
This is the noise level outside “standing outside”. If an occupant was standing within the building – it would be significantly less because you’d need to account for double glazing and building insulation. This would reduce the sound level by a further 30 – 50% – making them inaudible to anyone inside the building.
This video shows one of our compressors running on maximum – this unit is the largest we sell (36K) – it is self-evident that I can easily talk over the top of it.
Pre-charged Line Sets
The maximum total [combined] length is 262 ft.
The maximum vertical height [not length] between the condenser and any air handler is 50 ft.
We also have non-standard 16′ line set lengths available for purchase.
If we have to special order an item – shipping is typically 2 – 4 weeks and we aim to carry most items in stock.
For example, if you live in BC you could get up to $11,000 for switching to an electric heat pump from a fossil fuel heating source. This includes a $3,000 rebate from BC Hydro, which is in addition to CleanBC’s existing $3,000 rebate. Eligible applicants can receive a combined rebate of up to $6,000 from BC Hydro and CleanBC in one application while funding lasts.
You may also be eligible for up to $5,000 in additional rebates from the federal government’s Canada Greener Homes Grant. This is a separate program with its own eligibility criteria and application process, which requires registration and a home evaluation before making any upgrades.
The great news is you can find our MR COOL DIY Heat pumps on the rebate-eligible heat pump list provided by BC Hydro so you’re already one step closer to an efficient, rebate ready heat pump system.
