How To Install Pioneer Mini-split 110V| Detailed Ductless Air Conditioner Install | Garage A/C

Detailed step-by-step DIY for installing Pioneer Minisplit A/C in my garage. If you want to skip to different phases of the install, use the chapter links below or in the timeline.
I got this 12,000 BTU (1-ton) unit from Home Depot (drop shipped to local store) during a sale for $700+tax. It is on the smaller end for an 850SF garage, but I only needed it near my bench/shop area and not intended to cool the whole garage all the time.
You can get them from various dealers and on Amazon too, who ever has the best price. These Pioneer brand units are distributed by Parker Davis, they appear to be rebranded Midea units who make many of the other branded minisplits. From research, it seems like these are better quality and components than Mr Cool. It does require more install steps like pressure tests and vacuum than Mr Cool instructions, but it probably last longer with quality fewer issues.
