Century

Model: VMH36SC ductless mini-split system

Footprint (in inches): Indoor: 57 (length) by 11 (width) by 13 (height)

Serviceability features: Error codes on LED display help diagnose problems. Cover of inside unit is easily removed for access to components. Service ports on outdoor condenser are located on side of unit for accessibility.

Technical support: Available at 517-787-2100 weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time. Sales representatives around the United States and Canada can also provide assistance; their contact information is shown on the website under “Where to Buy.” Mini-split training can also be scheduled (subject to availability).

Technical support materials: Comprehensive installation/operation/maintenance manual, service manual with wiring diagrams, troubleshooting charts, etc. For the consumer, an owner’s manual and a separate remote control manual guide operation of the unit. These are packed with the unit and can be viewed or downloaded from the website, or they can be emailed upon request. IOM and service manuals are available on the website to contractors/installers.

Noise-reduction features: Inverter units are inherently quiet because the dc compressor runs at low RPMs most of the time, and the high-tech fan delivers balanced airflow for ultra-quiet operation. Also, the operational sound of the compressor is kept outside with the condensing unit. Indoor sound level is just 50 dBa or less, depending on fan speed.

IAQ equipment supported: Multistage filtration includes ionizer to remove microscopic particles; active carbon and dust filter, and freshening filter. Both the air filter and the freshening filter can be removed, cleaned, and reused. Because the unit runs at low frequency most of the time, there is little on-off cycling, allowing air to be pulled almost constantly across the filters for enhanced IAQ.

Thermostat compatibility: Built-in thermostat.

Replacement parts compatibility: Some shared parts and some unique parts.

Additional features: High wall-mount mini-split has the capacity to heat and cool a large room or office; multiple units can be used for exceptionally large spaces such as common areas. Indoor unit features slim profile and neutral color case. With multiple modes for heating, cooling, dehumidification only, plus sleep and turbo modes. Low ambient operation allows cooling from 5˚ to 122˚F. Random swing continually adjusts fan speed and air direction for a gentle, breeze-like effect.

Warranty information: Six-year compressor, two-year parts; some limitations apply including registration within 90 days of purchase; see printed warranty on website or packed with unit for details. AssurancePlus extended service agreements are available — contact a Century representative for details; contact information found on website under “Where to Buy.”

Special installation requirements: Power comes from the outdoor unit, so no special wiring or outlet is needed for the indoor unit. IOM provides detailed instructions including location selection, as well as minimum/maximum line set lengths and elevations. Recommended indoor-outdoor cable is 14AWG/4 conductor, 600V THHN unshielded stranded bare copper.

Technical support materials: Comprehensive installation/operation/maintenance manual, an owner’s manual with troubleshooting instructions; a complete parts list is also available. These can be viewed or downloaded from the website, or they can be emailed upon request.

Noise-reduction features: Inverter units are inherently quiet with high-tech fan; sound level is rated at just 40 dBA or lower. Also the operational sound of the compressor is kept outside with the condensing unit.

IAQ equipment supported: Indoor unit cycles last longer than non-inverter models (running at low speed most of the time), which means air is being pulled across the filter for longer periods, resulting in improved IAQ. The 360-degree airflow reduces stratification.

Thermostat compatibility: Wired wall thermostat and remote control.

Replacement parts compatibility: Does not share replacement parts with other models.

Additional features: Mix-and-match InverterFlex system allows conditioning of up to four rooms with one outdoor condenser.

There are nine possible combinations from 12,000 to 36,000 Btuh. Low ambient operation allows cooling down to 5˚F. Multiple modes include heating, cooling, air circulation, dehumidification only (indoor units must run in same mode). Cassette is sized to fit in standard 24-inch drop ceiling opening; low-profile panel is ordered separately.

Warranty information: Six-year compressor, two-year parts with registration within 90 days of purchase; some limitations apply, see printed warranty online or packed with unit. AssurancePlus extended service agreements are available; details on website or from a Comfort-Aire representative.

Special installation requirements: IOM explains line set length requirement; there are both minimum and maximum lengths and elevations. Recommended indoor-outdoor connecting cable is 14 AWG/4 conductor 600V THHN unshielded stranded bare copper. Power comes from outdoor unit so no special indoor wiring or outlets are needed, other than wired wall thermostat.
