Pioneer Mini Split Air Conditioner Review:
The Pioneer air conditioner and heat pump is a good, basic unit for residential use.
It doesn’t have all the modern luxuries (such as mobile app functionality), but it’s affordable than other 24,000 BTU mini split ac units.
As a mini split air conditioner, the Pioneer 24000 BTU is very quiet, energy efficient, and easy-to-use.
The only big downside is the installation — depending on your familiarity it can be a little complicated. However, this DIY design is why it’s more affordable than other units.
Overall, the Pioneer WYS Series is a high-powered ductless system w/ lots of positive buyer reviews.
