DIY vs Non-DIY

  • DIYCOOL™: No soldering, No refrigerant handling, No gauges, No vacuum pump or licensed contractor needed.
  • Full warranty on compressor AND parts, even if you self install
  • Cost of install: $0 plus your time invested to install the unit
  • Price for unit with the additional install accessories needed for the installation is about 15% less(sounds like a great deal)
  • Estimated cost average for professional installation by an HVAC technician about the same cost as the equipment or more
  • Warranty in place but only if installed by a licensed HVAC company(no warranty otherwise)


The 4 Main Operating Modes
  • Cooling: 18,000 BTUs to efficiently cool spaces up to 800 square feet.
  • Heating: Efficient heat pump technology delivers 18,000 BTUs of heat, good for spaces up to 800 square feet.
  • This unit allows you to set your desired temperature from 62 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Dehumidify: Enable DRY mode and the unit acts as a dehumidifier, removing more moisture than air conditioning alone. In this mode, you can remove 1.5 liters of moisture per hour, almost matching the energy factor of best-selling portable dehumidifier brands.
  • Fan Only: The unit offers 4 fan speeds in any operating setting or use the fan mode alone to circulate fresh air throughout your space.

Energy Saving Modes

  • AUTO Mode: A “set it and forget it” feature for eliminating guesswork. With your desired temperature set, enable AUTO mode and your mini split will choose the most appropriate operating mode to achieve maximum comfort in your space.
  • SLEEP Mode: Save energy and money by enabling SLEEP mode. The unit will adjust the temperature by 2 degrees towards a less costly operation: every hour for the first 2 hours, then locks in that optimal running state for the next 5 hours, before it shuts off automatically.

Smart Operation

The 3PAMSHQC18 model has a built in wireless smart controller. Simply download the Perfect Aire app, connect your smartphone or tablet, and you have a virtual remote controller. Switch between modes and program run times anywhere with a wi-fi connection.

Other Cool Features

Programmable Timer and Mode Scheduling
  • Set your system to turn on and off to save energy and money: Set TIMER ON and TIMER OFF times in 30-minute increments up to 10 hours, then 1-hour increments afterwards.
  • With the Perfect-Aire app and a Wi-Fi connection, you can even schedule times for the different modes to run – all from a smartphone or tablet.
4 Fan Speeds
  • Press the FAN SPEED button on the remote to cycle through Auto, Low, Medium, and High and find one that suits any situation.
  • In case of a power outage, the unit will automatically restart and revert to your settings once power is restored.
Auto-Swing Louvers & Angle Memory
  • The Louvers can be set to automatically swing back and forth for an even air distribution. Press the “SWING” button on your remote to start and stop.
  • Louver Angle Memory – Keep your previously set louver direction every time you power on your unit.
The Turbo Button
  • Hit this button on the remote to reach a desired temperature even faster. Your best friend when having guests over.
  • Turn off the unit from COOL, AUTO, or DRY modes and the unit will operate in a super low-power state to dry up the condensed water many other AC units leave behind, preventing the mildew problem many have known with other AC solutions.
Refrigerant Leakage Detection, Self-Cleaning, & Self-Diagnostics
  • The indoor unit will automatically display “EC” when it detects refrigerant leakage.
  • LED Display codes on the indoor blower keep you in the know, letting you rest assured your timer was successfully set, indicating whether the unit is in defrost mode, self-cleaning mode, or simply indicating it is time to change your air filter.

The Critical Components

Anti-Corrosive Condenser & Inverter Compressor
  • Perfect Aire single-zone units use a golden hydrophilic condenser to accelerate the defrosting process, improving the heating efficiency. This unique anti-corrosive condenser can withstand salty air, rain, and other corrosive elements.
  • The inverter compressor is programmed to run at optimum speed; set by the input frequency as it varies between heat requirements. This allows the unit to curb drastic temperature swings, keeping your space comfortable. Inverters use a different rotation speed than regular compressors, out-performing them in quietness, efficiency, and longevity.

Overall Good, could use some upgrades...

I bought this system to use in my 2-1/2 Car garage because it sits directly under our bedroom and affects the temperature in our bedroom. I was looking for a decent quality unit that I could install myself at a reasonable price and this fit the bill. The install process wasn't horrible, but I had to go through & down and interior wall and then out through a crawl space to the outside with the lines, power, drain, etc. Trying to feed the lines through and down the wall while installing was a bit of a challenge without damaging the sheetrock. I ended up having to enlarge the hole by about 50% to get the lines to go through. The other issue I faced was getting the unit to hang on the bracket because there are absolutely no markings showing where the bracket is, and you can't see it while attempting to hang it. I would recommend marking the top of the unit with the center or edges of each hanging point before removing the bracket from the unit. I would also make the same marks on the wall above the bracket. (You can use masking/painters tape for marking). The other issue I had is that the lower brackets that snap in place are made of plastic and since you are trying to stuff 2 lines, a drain, and an electrical cord into a very tight space, it's easy to get caught on something and one ended up breaking off way to easily. I ended up just leaving it because I would have had to take the entire unit back down, pull the lines back out just to replace the bracket, not worth in IMO... The plastic brackets need to be upgraded to something more durable.
Outside of that, I'm loving the unit, I can't even hear the indoor unit running and the outdoor unit is pretty quiet as well. I haven't gotten my first power bill yet, but am anxious to see how it's affected. If you are thinking about getting one of these, make sure you have knowledgeable/capable help installing and it should go fairly smoothly.

Was trying to decide between this or the Boreal system. We are happy with our choice
