I'd like to know if anyone has had experience with the
RAS09UH selling for around $550-$650 online. For this
price you get the condenser, the evaporator and a
Some have said that price is impossibly low, but it
does seem to exist as I have seen them on several
websites.. I guess all you would need would
be things like the tubing, but that might be included as
I was hoping to be able to find this product locally,
thus saving the shipping cost. So I called Hitachi and
asked for a distributor in New England. They gave me
the number of a company called Soleus International.
They told me they are only sold online. I thought this
was a bit odd for a big company like Hitachi not to
have local distributors.
Anybody heard of this being done commonly?
Help much appreciated!
My Samsung mini-split system was $1200 as I recall, so $600 is not
impossibly low depending on the size. I looked into buying it online
but I found reports that you need some special tools and knowhow to
evacuate the air from the system during installation. Other than the
evacuation it probably isn't too hard to DYI.
If I recall correctly mine's 18000 BTU (1.5 Ton). It might even be
24000 but for some reason I don't think so. I'm remodeling my den
right now and I don't know where my docs are but I could look at the
unit in the morning.
Just did a quick check on some internet prices. Looks like the 9000
BTU Samsung is around $1200. I think mine must have been closer to
$1600 or $1800. I see those Hitachis are going for ~$500 or so. Sure
is tempting. My den is upstairs and it gets uncomfortable in the
Summer. I've been kicking myself for not getting a 2-zone system and
splitting it between the garage and the den. I could pick up the
Hitachi as a supplement for my central air in the den.
