(Why don't we show the price?)

Retailers have the legal right to set their own prices, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be communicated. Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer's “minimum advertised price,” the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price until you place the item in your cart, or in some cases, proceeding to the final checkout stage. Taking these steps allows Appliances Connection to show you our price consistent with our goal of always offering you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products. You are not required to purchase the product to see our lowest price, simply just remove it from your cart.

Product Description

This Carrier mini-split indoor unit from the Performance series offers 42000 cooling and 49000 heating BTU, up to 5 zones, with inverter technology, fast and easy to install and built-in reliability. Providing individual room comfort, this indoor unit features secure operation, economical operation, easy-to-use controls and has simple servicing and maintenance. Available at AppliancesConnection


Inverter Technology
The inverter driven compressor is designed to run at various input power frequencies (Hz) which controls the motor speed of the compressor.

  • Even Temperature – The control package, including the inverter, monitors outdoor and indoor temperatures as they relate to the selected indoor set point and adjusts the speed of the compressor to match the load and keep the system operating continuously rather than cycling and creating temperature swings. This translates to higher comfort levels for the occupants.
  • Rapid Pull Down/Warm- Up – Comfort is increased by the ability to the inverter system to ramp up the compressor speed enabling the system to reach the user selected room temperature set point quicker.
  • Humidity Control – Running the system for longer periods and continuously varying the compressor speed will enhance the humidity control.

Low Sound Levels
When noise is a concern, the ductless split systems are the answer. The indoor units are whisper quiet. There are no compressors indoors, either in the conditioned space or directly over it, and there is none of the noise usually generated by air being forced through ductwork.

Secure Operation
If security is an issue, outdoor and indoor units are connected only by refrigerant piping and wiring to prevent intruders from crawling through ductwork. In addition, since 38MAQ units can be installed close to an outside wall, coils are protected from vandals and severe weather.

Fast Installation
This compact ductless split system is simple to install. A mounting bracket is standard with the indoor units and only wire and piping need to be run between indoor and outdoor units. These units are fast and easy to install ensuring minimal disruption to customers in the home or workplace. This makes the 38/40MAQ ductless split systems the equipment of choice, especially in retrofit situations.

Simple Servicing and Maintenance
Removing the top panel of the outdoor unit provides immediate access to the control compartment, providing the service technician access to the diagnostic LEDs to facilitate the troubleshooting process. In addition, the draw- thru design of the outdoor unit means that dirt accumulates on the outside surface of the coil. Coils can be cleaned quickly from the inside using a pressure hose and detergent.

Built-In Rebiability
Inverter systems provide additional reliability due to soft start. This refers to the ability of the inverter to start the compressor motor using reduced voltage and reduced current. This feature is beneficial from an electrical standpoint (eliminates current spikes) as well as an overall reliability standpoint due to reduced stress on all associated system components.

Individual Room Comfort
Maximum comfort is provided because each space can be controlled individually based on usage pattern. The air sweep feature provided permits optimal room air mixing to eliminate hot and cold spots for occupant comfort. In addition, year- round comfort can be provided with heat pumps.

Enhanced Economical Operation
Ductless systems are inherently economical to operate. Individual rooms are heated or cooled only when required, and since the air is delivered directly to the space, there is no need to use additional energy to move the air in the ductwork. This economical operation is enhanced further when the inverter system output matches the load resulting in a more efficient system.

Easy-to-Use Controls
The high- wall units have microprocessor- based controls to provide the ultimate in comfort and efficiency. The user friendly wireless remote control provides the interface between user and the unit.

*Note: This is a mini split outdoor unit and will not operate properly without an indoor unit.
