amazon selling DIY ductless heat pump

Hello,

http://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B00H9NB...1515991&sr=8-1

Amazon.ca and amazon.com are selling a carribou brand of ductless heat pump that is completely DIY and is a great price.

Has anyone heard of this company or better yet purchased one? It seems a bit questionable to me but I would love to here what you guys think

Id say good luck. I can see lots of humidity issues with only one size.. Twenty feet of line set is not much.

For a garage or similar...might be fine. We installed similar in a converted warehouse for a conference room and classroom...but we used Panasonic or Sanyo as I remember.

You'll need to research the company.

The company is Canadian based. I couldn't find any customer comments on the units.

I would be worried about service. "Who exactly services the unit in my area" is one question I'd want the answer to. Any time you have a do-it-yourself product and there is a problem with that item, the DIY factor is usually to blame and can negate a factory warranty.
