    Mitsubishi PUMY vs MXZ

    I'm renovating a NYC prewar apartment and installing central air. Another unit in this buildings uses the Mitsubishi MXZ condenser. The preliminary report from the engineers recommended a PUMY series condenser. I'm trying to figure out the difference between the two, both functionally and price wise. The PUMY series seems quite a bit more expensive (though prices are hard to find on the net), and I'm not sure what the benefit would be.

    P series is commercial. M series is residential.
    P series is more durable.

    There = not here. Their = possessive pronoun. They're = they are
    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.

    PUMY isn't a p series. It's an S series city multi system that uses mnet communication...I have two PUMY 3 tons on my house with three air handlers. An 18 and 24 convertible airhandler for upstairs and 36 convertible air handler for down stairs. It works really well.

    The S series is an upgrade from the lowish end m series and the professional P series in my opinion. All of the systems are great and really well built and reliable I just like the commercial stuff better.

    On a side note: I am waiting for the cold call from some company offering a $29.99 inspection...I want to take them up on it just to see their face when they see my system. You need a laptop and maintenance tool to work on it and most techs doing residential just don't have the training...

    I stand corrected. I wonder why they didn’t use an “S” as the first letter in the model number. They all appear to be salt protected.

    OP, if you live near the ocean you should choose the PUMY.

    I'll bet its short on freezone and has a bad capacitor.

    Just $650 and it will be fixed!

    It's an S series and making the model # PUSY would result in issues.
