My home is about 1300... I have a nice carrier hvac system that never cooled down the master bedroom or the add on 20 by 20 den.. I live in Florida..
I bought the 12k for the master bedroom and was so extremely impressed with how freezing ice cold it would chill the room in a matter of minutes..
It chilled it so nicely that I could tell the whole back of the house was colder when I had it on..
So I went ahead and bought the 24k for the den... Same results.. It not only blows ice cold it cooled the entire den down in just a few minutes..
I quickly realized that just running the 12k in the bedroom and the 24k in the den completely eliminated my need to ever turn on my HVAC again..
It cools the entire house down in minutes on a very hot day.. The HVAC system would run all day to barely maintain the chill in the house on a 90 degree day..
These 2 units are miracle for me.. They run at half the power and only a fraction of the time.. I predict these things will put hvac ducted systems out of business in the near future..
I was able to install both of them myself .. Purchased romex, breaker , and cut off box from amazon , ran the wires to the panel.. I had never done it before but after a few youtube videos and my desire to save a few hundred dollars the install was flawless.. I also purchased a 3 inch hole saw for my cinder block walls..
all that being said.. I dont think you will need the dual zone units if you do what i did.. place a 12k on one end of the house and a 24k on the other you will be amazed.. - oh and this is a very good deal.. i paid 1650 for my 24k from ingrams air and water.
Never even heard of that brand. Mr Cool has been making these mini spit systems for quite a while. And I'm also seeing 17 seer on HD's site [homedepot.com] as well. And like the other guy was saying above, it probably isn't a true DIY type system either. Looks like it has the flare ends on the line sets already (which is good for a DIYer because you need a special tool for that plus it's something easy to screw up if you don't know exactly what you're doing), but are they sealed from the factory like the mr cool ones where the line sets are punctured when you attach them? If not, it really should be evacuated/checked for leaks before starting up. Now this can be done with a gauge set and a vacuum pump but that's going to add to the cost a bit. Planning on having somebody come and do it... well you're already over the price of the mr cool system at that point and the discussion is over.
I usually get a bunch of years out of window units (have to handle them carefully and clean them well with bleach or whatever to get the mildew out of them at the end of the summer before you put them away). I'll tell you what I've had fail a in them a few times now, the motor bearings. I'm not going to lie and say it's super easy to replace them but if you have a little patients and a couple hours of time then they can be replaced. They just take small sealed bearings just like the ones found in skateboard or rollerblade wheels. First time I needed some I got them locally at a ACE or something and they were kind of expensive and the following time I ordered them from Amazon [amazon.com]. Not saying that they're all the same size but so far I replaced the ones in an LG and a couple of GE window units. Believe the blower motor was frigidaire in them if I'm not mistaken. Wonder how many good window units get tossed into dumpsters every year because two one dollar bearings go bad LOL.

Bought this exact unit last year for the same price. Works great! Really the only thing a novice would need to sub out is running 220 electrical and a cut-off switch.

Is 20 SEER a good rating?

According to the MR Rebate center this unit qualifies for a $300 tax credit.

For a 1000sq ft home, 3 bed,1 bath, is it better to get 1 big one for living room, and 1 multi zone for 3 rooms or 1 big for living room, and 3 small ones?

Depends,
Your welcome.

ok sarcasm aside this varies HUGELY on how hard the job is and your location.
Please provide more details and you might get an accurate quote.

Jim bob's trailer install in WV is likely to cost less than a condo in LA.

That would be a question for your local electrician. Every install is different, as well as local codes and regional contractor labor prices.

not much info there. that could be Chicago or athens co. ohio ( poor location where Joe Burrow is from.)

$500-1000 if they are providing the parts.
you have Breaker, wiring, disconnect. any outdoor conduit they would need. etc

Then again we talking home advisor electrician .. or phone book.

Mice ate all the wires in our current Mini-Split, and parts are impossible to find for some reason (AllStyles brand). Local AC/Heating guys will only install equipment purchased from them, about twice this price all in. Since I already have Electricity routed and holes in the wall, would this be a fairly easy DIY install?

20 SEER is much better than the 12 SEER window units in my near-200 year old house!

This would be perfect for my upstairs, which has no ducts.
