Well its another edition of Japan Tech and this time I got a great air conditioning system for cheap. You can spend several thousand after installation and shipping. This is in regards to the split system units with a compressor outside and an air handling unit inside. I however went for the window unit with a little twist and fitted it to the sliding glass door. Almost all windows in Japan either crank open or the majority slide to the side. I almost never see the western style windows that move up and down. So the window units are all vertical. A do it yourself person can install a window unit and save money especially if you may have to move. Not hiring someone to charge and or drain the split system of freon can save money.

Japan is an innovator in modern compact air conditioners and the small split systems sold in Japan are becoming more commonplace in the west as the larger bulky central air systems are expensive to buy and less efficient and very expensive to install. Both types of Japanese systems are super efficient and have loads of features depending on how much you invest. The maintenance on even the economical models is very low. Features include fully tweakable humidification, dehumidification, reverse pump heating, ionization, air cleaning and self cleaning modes. The actual design of the units make them very user friendly when it comes to popping the covers off and wiping the insides out..
