What is a Comfortstar Mini-Split AC?

Named after their split design, Comfortstar mini split AC is a comfort solution for homes. A mini-split air conditioner consists of either one outdoor and an indoor unit or one outdoor and multiple indoor units.

You can use a Comfortstar mini-split unit as a standalone system or a supplemental system or for dedicated spaces in your home. Thanks to the ductless design, these units provide compact and flexible installations, which make them a great option for any application.

You can also install Comfortstar mini-split unit in an unconditioned space, like garages. Additionally, you can also install them in rooms which are under-served. Comfort star mini splits can also be used a standalone cooling and heating solution in historical homes that doesn’t have ductwork.

Some of the main advantages of using a Comfortstar mini-split ac are as follows:

  • Quiet Comfort

Comfortstar mini split air conditioners have a very low sound rating, as low as 19 dB. That means their sound levels are lower than a whisper. As a result, these units are unobtrusive. They are so quiet you will likely forget that they are running.

  • Energy Savings

Comfortstar mini split air conditioners use many energy-saving technologies. Using a mini-split in place of a window AC will help minimize your monthly energy costs. Compared to window units, mini-splits are up to 30% more energy efficient.

  • No Ductwork Needed

Mini-split air conditioners don’t rely on ducts, and Comfortstar mini splits are no exception. They use indoor air handlers and outside condensing units. Refrigerant travels directly from your outdoor unit within an insulated refrigerant line.

  • Zoning Cooling and Heating

Comfortstar mini-split ACs can cool an indoor space without any construction work. You can also create a multi-zone cooling system by pairing two or more indoor units with one outdoor unit. Each indoor unit can thus operate independently of other units.

With zone cooling, you can cool one area or room at a time. For instance, the bedroom AC can be kept turned off until bedtime. A central air conditioner, on the other hand, cools all rooms in your home, including those that you don’t use very often. By letting you cool only specific rooms at a time, zone cooling helps you reduce energy costs.

Components of Comfortstar Mini Split Air Conditioners

These systems have the following four main components:

  • Condensing Unit: Also called the outdoor unit, it is installed outside the home. The cool air is pumped by the condenser coil of the outdoor unit through the insulated refrigerant line.
  • Refrigerant Line: The refrigerant line forms a connection between the outdoor and indoor units.
  • Indoor Unit: The indoor unit blows the cool air inside an indoor space. They are usually mounted on the wall, but they can also be suspended from the ceiling.
  • Remote Control: You can change the temperature and control the entire system with the remote control.

Single Zone Vs Multi-Zone

A single-zone Comfortstar split system cools one room. It has a single outdoor unit and a single indoor unit. A multi-zone Comfortstar mini-split system cools multiple areas of a home. Every indoor unit represents one zone and is connected with the outdoor unit by refrigerant lines. This system also has a single outdoor unit, which handles all the indoor units.

Factors to Consider While Purchasing a Comfortstar Mini Split

Size and energy efficiency are two main factors you should consider when selecting a mini split unit for your home.


Each mini split unit can provide a specific amount of cooling power. Therefore, make sure the unit you pick is adequate for the indoor space you want to cool.

The cooling capacity of an air conditioner is measured in ‘tons’, but it is based on how many BTUs it can remove per hour. BTU stands for British Thermal Unit, which is a unit of heat. That means the cooling capacity of an AC is actually based on the amount of heat it can remove in an hour.

But how can you calculate the cooling capacity of an AC in terms of square feet?

One-tone air conditioners have a cooling capacity of 12,000 BTUs. Generally speaking, one ton of AC is sufficient for 600 square feet of space under normal conditions. So, if you need to cool a room that’s 1,200 square feet in size, you will likely need 24,000 BTUs (that is, a 2-ton AC). Likewise, if the room size is 1,800 square feet, you will likely need 36,000 BTUs (in other words, a 3-ton AC).

Form a Comfortstar multi-zone system, and pay attention to the cooling capacity of each zone (or indoor unit). That’s because each indoor unit functions independently of the others.

Energy Efficiency

The energy efficiency of a mini-split AC is measured by SEER (which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). The better the rating of a Comfortstar mini-split unit, the greater its energy efficiency will be. While a mini-split unit that is more energy efficient is likely to cost more upfront, it can save you a considerable sum every month. Therefore, in the long run, mini-split units with higher energy efficiency tend to be cheaper.
