Ductless Mini Splits Have a Cool History

After World War II, air conditioning manufacturers in the U.S. were excited to cash in on Japan’s sweltering summers. That’s when air conditioners were first introduced to Japan.

The Japanese absolutely loved the idea of Air Conditioning, but...

Home and building owners in Japan were deeply disappointed. Mitsubishi’s early A/C systems could not be used in Japan for a few interesting reasons.

Japanese homes were famously small, thin walled and tightly clustered together. Not a good match for loud, droning AC’s and their massive, bulky duct work.

Also, Japan’s energy costs were sky high then. That alone meant doom for the earlier, energy hogging AC’s.

Japan’s response? Revolutionize the Air Conditioner

Again, the Japanese adored the idea of AC’s, so their manufacturing engineers quietly went to work.

In 1959, Mitsubishi finally succeeded in reinventing air conditioning. They introduced the Ductless Mini Split Heating and Cooling System.

(Almost) All the world loved it

Mitsubishi’s “split” technology enabled each room to have its own temperature zone, eliminated bulky duct work, ran quieter and was much more energy efficient.

In time, the popularity of these unique systems spread across Europe and other parts of the world...but not here in the United States. Distributors said no.

Mitsubishi mini splits finally make it in America

Decades later, Mitsubishi’s AC marketers became savvier at directly educating U.S. consumers. The response was dramatic. Now, hundreds of thousands of ductless mini splits are sold in the U.S. every year.

Continuous improvement

Manufacturers continuously advanced their ductless technologies - with Mitsubishi leading the pack. The latest systems are far more energy efficient. They’re quieter still, run cleaner and they meticulously filter out allergens.

When reviewed, HVAC contractors and homeowners consistently give high marks to Mitsubishi’s ductless systems.
