Facts About Fujitsu

Fujitsu Limited has headquarters in Tokyo, Japan where the company was founded in 1923. Fujitsu began in the telecommunications industry, helping to rebuild Tokyo’s communication infrastructure after the Great Kanto Earthquake the same year. Currently, Fujitsu has more than 170,000 employees and is the world’s third largest provider of IT services. It has been an innovation leader for decades in telecommunications, computers and the HVAC industry.

Fujitsu Heat Pumps

All of the heat pump series are made under the Halcyon brand name. Here is an overview of the heat pump systems.

Fujitsu Halcyon Hybrid Flex Inverter Series: This is the top of the line series. It gives you the opportunity to connect up to 8 indoor air handler units to the single outdoor condensing unit. It works with wall-mounted, cassette in ceiling and slim duct indoor units. The outdoor unit is the Fujitsu AOU48RLXFZ. Top efficiency ratings are 17 SEER and 9.8 HSPF.

Fujitsu Wall Mounted Series: The air handlers mount high on a wall and offer capacity up to 12,000 BTU capacity. They can be used in systems with up to 4 air handlers. The outdoor units for this series are the AOU9RLFW, AOU12FLFW, 9R2, and 12R2. Top efficiencies are 23 SEER and 11 HSPF.

Fujitsu Cassette Series: These in-ceiling air handlers show only the grill, for a very discreet look in any room. The outdoor units are the 18RCLX, 24RCLX, 36RCLX, and 42CRLX. The numbers correspond to the number of BTUs they deliver. Top ratings are 16 SEER and 8.5 HSPF.

Fujitsu Universal Floor Ceiling Series: This air handler can be mounted near the floor or near the ceiling, but not free standing. Two sizes of outdoor units are available, the 17,800 BTU 18 RULX and the 22,200 BTU 24RULX. Maximum efficiencies are 16 SEER and 8.5 HSPF.

Fujitsu Large Ceiling Series: These air handlers are designed for single large zones and have 34,000 BTU capacity. The outdoor unit is the 36RSLX with a maximum efficiency of 14 SEER and 8.5 HSPF.

Fujitsu Heat Pump Prices

The price of the Fujitsu Halcyon heat pump system you choose will depend on the capacity of the unit and the number of indoor units it serves. Small, single zone units can cost less than $1,000 while the largest systems cost more than $6,0000.

Summary

Fujitsu heat pumps offer an excellent alternative to central heat pump systems. They are ideal for new construction or for retrofitting older construction where re-doing the duct work for an updated system is not a good option. They work well in both residential and commercial settings.

    We had a Fujitsu minisplit installed in the addition we had put on our home and its worked great. A bit higher priced than some o the other ductless systems we looked at, but worth it to us.

    Queit and efficient, if a bit expensive. Worked great for 18 months, then quit. Parts were still under warranty but labor ($700) was not. Supposedly some kind of bimetal corrosion caused a leak. Worked 6 weeks and has quit again. Waiting on service. We’ll see, but at this point I cannot recommend.

    Fujitsu Halcyon Model # AOU24RLXFZ.

    I previously believed that your products were top of the line. I am sorry to say that I no longer believe this is the case.

    I had my motor mounting bracket and fan replaced this week on this unit that is 4 years old.. This occurred after the fan hit the cowling of the unit. Fujuitsu provided a new reinforced mounting bracket replacement and fan for free , however, the labour cost was $99.75. The contractor who repaired our unit said Fujuitsu recognized that the original mounting bracket was defective but it was not willing to cover the labour costs because there is not a recall. To make this matter worse, my neighbour who had recommended Fujuitsu to me and has an older model had exactly the same mount as mine and it was replaced and labour costs covered under a Fujuitsu recall.

    What I find morally and corporately unconscionable are: Fujuitsu knew that these mounting brackets were defective but continued to install them in later models; and secondly, its failure to fully stand behind its product despite the obvious

    Broken all the time! Do not think I have been able to use the unit consecutively for one week. It’s a biggest piece of junk I’ve ever had. I spent almost $7000 on it! I hate the unit and wish I could get my money back only owned for 6 months

    • Iceman says:

      What kind of job did the installer do ? Most problems are installation related not equipment. 6 months, this should be free parts and free labor. I supply free labor on all instalatons for 1 year. Installation to be done correctly are sometimes a big pain in the butt as line lenght is important but does not look good. I found out that lines shorter than 15 ft do not work well. Good luck in the future.

    JUST AS AN FYI…..DO NOT BUY ANY FUJITSU PRODUCTS…..Had several problems with 2 of my mini split units….both were defective and because of Fujitsu’s so called warranty, I had to spend a lot money on repairs. Fujitsu DOES NOT STAND behind their products and there is no customer service at their New Jersey Headquarters. DO NOT BUY FUJITSU.

    I’m in Nova Scotia and am totally satisfied with this 24k unit. I had previously owned a Samsung 24k unit which was a piece of junk. Noisy,rattled and never worked from day 1. The Fufitsu delivers twice the heat and is very quiet. Turn it on and forget about it.

    I bought this $8000 unit at the recommendation of the salesman of one of the most reputable dealers in Town. Shortly after it was installed it failed to work repeatedly blowing fuses. While repairman worked on it, it literally exploded somewhere in the interior like a gun shot. Talking hours on the phone back east the repairmen finally gave up and replaced the whole compressor unit. Three years later it has lost all its refrigerant and will not cool or heat. Two hours with a repairman cussing the unit and placement I will probably face an $8000 loss of a foul tasting lemon. Don’t buy anything from this company.

    Live in Nova Scotia. Had the 18000 BTU unit for 2 months. Heats our 12 year old open concept house vary well. I bit disappointed in the temperature control. House will go down to 68-69 degrees before the unit comes on which is set at 72. Once the unit would not turn off and ran until we shut it off and room reached 78 degrees. One other time unit would not turn on and deliver heat, Had to turn it up to 74 to get it started. The installer doesn’t seem to be to concerned and I don’t have much faith in him.

    I installed a 15k five years ago and a 12k 6 years age and the units work great. I’m never had a problem with these units, I believe a lot of the problems people have with their units is who installed them.

    Installed a 1 zone mini split in the bedroom of my off grid solar powered home 5 years ago. Super efficient and trouble free Gets heavy summer cooling use and moderate winter heating. Had to install a 120 to 240 auto former to power it but worth it. No issues to date. I’d buy it again in a heartbeat.

    We have a ducted 4 ton system hooked up to 2 air handlers. One for each floor of a standard colonial. It has been in place 2 1/2 years now and has worked flawlessly. In the summer we set it on one temp and leave it all summer running even when we are away for two months.. In the winter we found it performed best when we picked a temperature and left it set on that temperature all winter without adjusting it up or down. Last winter was one of the coldest I ever remember in the northeast and we even had weeklong spells of zero to negative and the system was able to maintain heat. However when the temp stays at 5 above or lower for extended periods we do notice the system struggles to maintain 70 degree inside temp.

    Installed fall of 2013. On my third evaporator coil and it has now begun to leak. Emailed Fujitsu service department asking for some sort of explanation, no response yet.
    I’m not putting in a fourth coil, the whole system is coming out.

    We owned ours for about a year and a half and had to have a repair person out 3 times already. The warranty does not cover labor, so each time the labor bill has been in excess of $150. Now the control board is shot and it will take 6 days to order one and get it here and installed. In a nutshell, these Fujitsu mini splits are inferior systems. The warranty is a bad joke. Believe all the bad reviews and don’t waste your money. We paid about $6000 that I wish I had back.

    we outfitted our entire house with mini splits from Fujitsu (3 outdoor units and 7 inside units) price including install/electric etc totaled $17,700!! but now we have central air and cheaper heat to supplement our expensive oil boiler. that was 3 years ago and so far so good. they units work quite well for A/C and pretty good for heat as well. they’re VERY efficient and quiet. there’s a few things that annoy me with them that I think Fujitsu could’ve done alot better with. 1. when in heating mode they defrost on a schedule weather they need it or not. when its very cold, they defrost pretty often which means alot of wear and tear on the system and a decent chunk of time where you have no heat coming from the unit.
    2. the temperature sensor in the unit is completely unreliable. I think it senses its own heat and shuts off instead of sensing the room’s heat. we have to keep them set to 74 just to keep the room at 70. if we set it to 72, they shut off and the temp drops to 65 in the house and they just sit there doing nothing! VERY annoying!
    3. the other problem is that when they think the room is warm enough, they shut off but while they’re off, freezing cold air trickles out. since they’re mounted high on the wall and in many places we’re sitting directly below them you get a nice shower of ice cold air all over you when it should be nice warm air.

    • Iceman says:

      Sounds like an easy fix. Take a ladder, go outside where the lineset goes into the house and insulate the hole. This is the only place cold air can come from. Hope this helps

    Our system was installed two years ago and consists of a single outdoor unit connected to three indoor units, one thing that is never explained by fujitsu is that you can not use auto mode if you have more than one indoor to one outdoor unit.
    we live in an environment where we can use air conditioning going to bed but need heat in the morning, a huge design flaw to require getting up in the middle of the night to change all your units to heat.
    Fujitsu is no help, suggestions were to buy a wifi controller so you could switch it from your cell phone (just what I want to do while on vacation)
    BE VERY AWARE OF THE LIMITATIONS WHEN BUYING A NEW SYSTEM

    Buyer beware! I had a Fujitsu Halcyon installed in a 500 sq ft room in 2014. Every time I switch from cooling to heating mode the unit goes into an error mode and shuts down. The error code is a “temperature discharge error”.

    I’ve had an HVAC repairman here 4 times to reset it, change the part and drain and refill the freeon.

    Fujitsu will NOT cover labor so any cost savings from efficiency are lost to labor costs.

    I’m hoping there will be a class action suit filed at some point to get this rectified. A $4,000 unit should not have this much trouble.

  21. Jim Brooks says:

    We were considering installing a Fujitsu in our home but now I’m not sure. If parts and LABOR are both covered for five years we can still possibly have one installed. l am in Shelton wa.and there is an installer in town has this company had any complaints listed? Thanks,Jim
