    I have a heat pump and it also hooks into my water heater. It's never that hot or cold here so it's perfect. Most of the time the aux cooling and heating parts of the system don't even come on. I have to remember to run the heat and AC once every three months to exercise the aux systems.

      If you have ducts, might as well use central air.

      They can do heating too, till it gets to less than -10C (-20 with really good ones).

    I was thinking recently. Car air conditioners don't require a lot of electricity and they can make the interior of your car super cold on a hot day. So I got to thinking, why not rig up a car air conditioner to use for a room in your house? Of course, the interior of your car is a small space and it would have a hard time cooling a room, so what you'd do is partition your room where your computer is with curtains so it becomes a smaller space to cool and you just make that area around your computer cold.

      Of course not. They're directly mechanically coupled to the engine and don't run on electricity at all.

        Yep, have one in my bedroom. When I lived in Florida, we had a central AC system but here in Wisconsin, it's only needed a few months of the year. We have a boiler in the basement for heat so there's not much point in getting a through-the-wall mini-split system.

      USD300 for a 12000BTU unit in South America, i've been thinking on running it from solar power by bypassing the AC>DC circuitry

      You dirty fricking tradie prostitute, they're literally on Amazon for $500 with 2 day shipping.
      The only reason they cost too much is because you're a scummy piece of shit that'll charge more than a grand to run a circuit, use a hole saw, and charge the system. Anyone handy can learn how to do it themselves.

        even the chinese cooling only units would still cost 3-5k USD. the extra low temp units installed here will be around 6-8k for a single head unit (fujitsu/mitsubishi brand...not your noname garbage)

      they were uncommon because people just installed central air with higher capacity than their cooling/heating requirements.
      as everyone gets poorer, central air systems will be less common to cut costs, and people will be signing lease-to-own contracts on mini-splits one at a time.
      the central air part is the main reason though. US/Canada/Australia for example were less "developed" at the right time for most houses to be built with central air. in countries with older buildings, it was cheaper and easier to do minisplit systems in most buildings and new construction just did the "standard" thing. (reverse in the US, it was more cost efficient to do central air). mini splits are only trendy now because everyone gets poorer by the day, well-to-do people do not even think of "mini split vs central air" outside of the occasion they want to look trendy (no care about the economic side)

        it's not wise what they are doing. most of the places that i see setting these up are old houses (probably with poor insulation) in regions with brutal winter months. they're going to get punched in the face with the electric bill when they found out how much more expensive it is to use electricity rather than gas to heat a space. it's really best in places with mild winter, or somewhere like SEA since it's only hot.
