I talked with a local contractor who told me that Fujitsu mini-splits are "somewhat cheaper" than Mitsubishi, he said "lighter plastic", "fewer bells and whistles". Vague.
Is this true? Are they lower quality in any sense that matters? Less durable?
I don't care if they have lighter plastic as long as they're durable enough for upstate New York - a lot of temperature variation here. I looked at pricing online and Mitsubishi minisplits were maybe a little more expensive, but within 10%.
