Review of the Pridiom AMS121HX 12,000 BTU Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioner

The Pridiom AMS121HX is a ductless air conditioning system that offers 12,000 BTU of cooling and heating power. This air conditioner also features Pridium’s Advance Inverter technology that helps by getting the room more comfortable faster. This is one of the few ductless units that features a sleep mode, auto restart, and a remote control. The AMS121HX also may help qualify those for a 500 dollar tax credit once it is installed. The biggest factor to mot will be the installation of this product.

While the AMS121HX is one of the easiest ductless air conditioning systems to use once it’s installed, this product does require professional installation. This is something to think about when purchasing the unit for yourself. The reason why it has to be professionally installed has to do with running the refrigerant lines and filling the compressor with refrigerant. This should only cost you about 100 dollars at most from many HVAC installers it’s still an added cost that many don’t see coming when the buy these units.

The maintenance of this product is the same as most standard air conditioners. The only problem could be is that if anything goes wrong with this product you may need to hire a professional to fix it which can cost quite a bit. Also when it comes to breaking parts, since the models change regularly you might not be able to get parts for your air conditioner if it happens to break down.

If you have it installed by a professional then this product works exactly the way it is supposed to. It cools when it is hot and it heats when it is cold. This can save your energy bills by offering temperature control of just one room of your house. This can be a problem though for those who plan on using it as an alternative to in window units may not find the cooling they need in their house. It just depends on what you plan on using the AMS121HX for in your house.

This is a perfect unit for those who are looking for a way to cool a room or addition without adding messing ductwork. The only drawbacks are the price, professional installation, and limited range of use for those looking for an alternative to in window units. It just depends on what you plan on using this system for.

Systems like these usually require a professional to handle and install. It can also be one concern of the consumers in buying this kind of system. If anything goes wrong with this product you may need to seek professional for repairs.

Pridiom mini splits are JUNK! They are nothing but re badged Amcor units. Amcor had a big problem with the outside PC boards shorting out and could not provide replacements.
Do yourself a favor and stay away from these cheap units. Stick with Mitsubishi, Fujitsu, Lg and your wallet will be much happier.
