Do NOT buy a venturi style vacuum pump (originally linked in the OP, they have since linked to a proper mechanical vacuum pump capable of reaching 500 microns)

The Harbor Freight $16.99 vacuum pump is not suitable for installing modern HVAC systems. Per the specs, it can only pull a vacuum down to approximately 40,000 microns (conversion chart is here [engineeringtoolbox.com]). You absolutely need to get below 500 microns, otherwise the lubricant in the system will combine with residual moisture, form acids, and eat the system from the inside out.

If you absolutely don't want to hire someone to pressure test/purge the lines with nitrogen and vacuum the system properly (with a micron gauge to verify adequate vacuum was reached), buy the proper tools and do it right - otherwise you're just wasting your money.

I'm a Florida licensed HVAC contractor, and I'm not saying this to "protect my trade". I'm saying this because I've seen enough systems half-ass installed that died in less than 3 years. Do it right the first time or you'll be paying someone like me to re-do it.

I shopped extensively before installing lots of mini splits in my house; LG is mostly horror stories about breakdowns and hard to source parts. Plus they are expensive. Samsung is ok, but the best brands are really Fujitsu and Mitsubishi.

However, I went the other way- I installed Pioneer since the parts are so cheap that they are effectively disposable. I can get a new condenser or air handler for about the same cost as 1-2 hours of technician time.

Only one year in but going strong, and my three systems cost about 10k-15k less than going with a major name brand. My parts were about 5-6k all in, and the Mitsubishi easily would have pushed near 20k for the same number of units and capacity.

Wow that's a high SEER rating.... This thing must stuck down electricity. Lower SEER number more efficiency. Most of the mini-splits I've been looking at are 11 to 13, why is this one so high???
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measure of cooling over an entire season. It is determined by comparing the amount of cooling produced in BTUs in relation to the amount of electricity used. A higher SEER means a system is more energy efficient and would provide comfort at a lower utility cost than a lower SEER system. ??

The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient it is.

When Bing cashback was a thing, I had an ebay seller/installer install a Fujitsu mini-split in my basement.

Rated at 26 SEER, I can only imagine how much Ive spent in electricity over the years

i would guess most of us are installing these upstairs... does that always mean we have to add a 220 outlet and run a line to the electrical box... or is there an alternative solution?

The 220v line goes to the outdoor unit, which will ideally be mounted on the ground. There is a 220v+communication wire that runs to the wall unit from the outdoor unit, but it just runs in the same conduit as the refrigerant lines (i.e. line hide).

The 220v line on a 24k btu isn't bad- I don't know about this unit but my 27k unit only needed a 20a line so the wire wasn't too thick/expensive.
