Chris_Tian makes good points on his reply to this. You will have to drill from the interior to the exterior wall and then run the line to the condenser. It is simple, but not necessarily easy.

This is why line set length is so important. Maybe 13ft is enough, but maybe you need 25ft. If you need 50 ft, you will likely need to add refrigerant as the charge that comes with the unit is meant for runs up to 25 ft.

I learned a lot through the install of this unit - adding a 20 amp circuit, running the romex, transitioning to THHN for outside and the disconnect, etc (so many codes/standards). Let me be clear though - if you have hesitations, DO NOT DIY. Do what you can and sub out certain parts (electrical, condenser set up, etc).

All that said - I really like this system. It is SO QUIET. The interior unit is barely audible and the outdoor unit just sounds like a soft fan - you can barely hear the compressor.
I believe the compressor come pre-charged with enough freon to charge up to 25' of line set. The lines are not precharged like on the DIY version of the Mr. Cool units. You can borrow a vacuum pump from an auto parts store to evacuate the line set.
I just went through the purchase and DIY install of a mini split to replace a portable ac/space heater in a room where the house hvac system wasn't working well.

I missed the Pioneer deal at Home Depot, so I looked at the ongoing deals at Costway. I wanted a 9k btu/115v system (room is only 200 sq ft), but also needed 25ft of line to get from the indoor unit to the outdoor unit. Most of these systems come with 16ft, and the costway unit here is 13.

I ended up purchasing a 9k unit from another vendor that allowed me to select what length I needed (0ft, 16ft, 25ft, 50ft). Cost me $719 shipped for an Olmo unit. For some reason, SouthMiniSplits did not charge me tax or shipping.

Olmo unit at Amazon [amazon.com]($688 with 16ft)
Olmo unit at SouthMiniSplits [southminisplits.com] ($683 with 16ft, $719 w/ 25ft, $831 w/ 50ft)

If this unit meets your needs (12k, 230v, 13ft), this is a fantastic deal.

Curious how you're running the lines? like through walls and whatnot? I've only ever seen these installed right across the wall or in a garage type setting where visible lines aren't a big deal, but running refrigerant lines through existing construction seems pretty tough.

Well, you need to be smart on its placement. You cant just install it in a partition wall and pretend the lineset will hide itself away. Usually you want to grab an exterior wall and put the compressor on the other side of that wall. That is if your town allows for that in the code and the dba of that compressor meets your towns allowable noise dba.
Otherwise youll be looking at a fine and make you legalize or take it away.

Look at ur towns code first. Then go for it if they allow it.

Anyone have a spec sheet on this unit? Nothing comes up when searching the item number near the top (47953816), looking for minimum heating temp (outside), and what breaker this uses for install. Usually this is on a spec sheet or pdf but I don't see anything like that here.

Good price but Costway quality and return process is pretty bad, I would buy the extended warranty for 3 years just to cover.

Ideally you don't want to have your outdoor condenser unit too far from the indoor unit. And you have to drill through walls to fit the lines through. If you have concrete or brick wall that will be pain in the butt. From my DIY experience, any area you can install a Windows AC, you can install split unit, just hang the outdoor unit directly under the window wall, and you can easily connect to the 110v power source near by. Get the 110v unit if you can, unless you need bigger BTU unit. because you don't want to go through another task to convert your 110v line to 220v. Split AC is not DIY friendly if you are a starter. but it's doable if you know what you are doing. I installed 5+ in my house, and I found to have the HVAC vacuum pump and pressure gauge set is useful to make sure there is no leak before you release the refrigerant into the system. If you can DIY, you save a lot on these, any HVAC guy will charge you double to cost of the unit to install it. Anyway, the brand is mostly rebranded Chinese unit, you can find similar unit at Home Depot and Amazon using the same remote. Like AUX, Della brand. Keep in mind , this Lineset is only 13 feet, in real world it's 10 ft or less. So make sure that's enough before purchase.

Manual says inside freon is sufficient for 16.4 feet, longer needs more freon. That have a table in the user manual.

I have this unit, quality seems good when in look at fit and finish and wire quality. They have Skimped on a few things, like lineset only 13 feet and 8 feet long drain...

19.4 is minimum for heat. 75.2 shows as max
