I don't see them as being very cost efficient. I have two mini splits total 24,000 BTU. that I paid $1400.00 for. Total amps 15 by my measurement.

The Noria unit is 5000 BTU I didn't see amps listed. It is a kickstarter project that is supposed to sell for $400, looks like they might be shipping now. It would take about 5 to equal the cooling capacity that I have.

The second one is a real bargain at $1750 for 4200 BTU running about 4 amps. It would take at least 6 of them, maybe more.

minisplits are great when you have the space underneath to put them, you must noit have very much heat load to only be pulling 14 amps total with both on.. they typically will maxx out at about 10-11 amps (mine in theh ouse do).. when they are under load..

minisplits definitely give a huge bang for the buck (again when you have the space).. and never need to service one... typically they are pretty reliable..

for people with cutaways or P-30 based busses i can see where these other types of units make sense... esp if you dont want a roof air (ie you are installing solar)..

Looks good in theory, especially for the size. The amp usage on various power supplies sounded a little heavy.
If you've got a smaller heat pump like this, isn't it pretty much always going to be running on high?
