Q. How long does it take to install?
Typically no more than 1.5 hours.
Q. Do I need an electrician or plumber?
NO. The Mizzler is a plug and play system with very little skill required. The Mizzler does not connect to your home’s plumbing or electrical system. Everything operates on its self-supplied, 12V power source.
Q. Do I need a technician?
With the help of a couple of friends, the recycling tank can be installed within 5 minutes. Installing the other components is a breeze and can be done by yourself. That said, for the nominal additional cost (if any), we would recommend having your local technicians do the install for you, even if only for peace of mind.
Q. Can The Mizzler be detrimental to my condenser life?
Your condenser is already manufactured to weather the elements. The Mizzler actually helps it to function more efficiently and keep it clean, thus likely extend the life of your condenser. It will certainly extend the life of the compressor.
Q. Will it work on my specific system?
The Mizzler will work on any brand and model of standard split system (condenser, with air handler in different locations/s) The residential 'packaged type systems' version does not presently have a recycling tank to recover water from underneath...but watch this space!
Q. Does the Mizzler require a lot of maintenance?
Not at all. Every so often, during your walk of pride around your home or business, take a look in the recycling tank to see if any leaves or debris gathered of the filter. Check the pump filter area to see if they need a quick rinse. If you live in a region that has a deep-freeze season, there is a drain out, weatherization process to survive the winter. Other than an annual maintenance clean, that’s about it.
Q. Can I use utility (sometimes known as Tap or City) water to top up or fill The Mizzler tank?
Not recommended. This type of water contains chemicals that although are safe for human consumption, are harmful to the metals in the condenser coils. Long term usage of this type of water on the coils will be detrimental to the lifespan of the coils.
Q. Can I manually top up the recycling tank?
Absolutely. Although you should only use 'clean water', such as spring, distilled, rainwater, or even waste water collected from a dehumidifier.
Q. How much will this save me?
It depends on how much you run your system and how much you pay per kWh. A 35% improvement in efficiency doesn’t exactly equate to 35% off your cooling bill, but it gives you an idea. Just think about it is ribbiting. Consider these: In most cases, you don’t have to pay a pro to remove and/or add expensive refrigerant and additives. The longevity of your equipment is increased by putting less wear on internal components, etc. Since there is no cost to operate it, your individual ROI is as fast as can be.
Q. We don’t get a lot of rain around here, so will it work for me?
Maybe, maybe not. If you live in a region that cools less than 4 months a year, and/or live in a very dry climate, it probably isn’t an ideal location. The Mizzler is designed to operate best when it doesn’t require manual water supplementation, I.E in humid and tropical environments. If you at least have humid conditions, the Mizzler can collect your condensate water and add it to your recycled water. If the Mizzler runs out, it will collect what it can until there is enough to begin operating again. If you live in a very dry climate, this cycle will take longer in between. See
Q. How does the Mizzler get its power?
The Mizzler comes with a neat 30-watt solar panel that charges a Lithium-Ion battery, which powers the whole system. Note - The Mizzler does not have the ability to plug directly into an AC power source.
Q. Will this void my systems warranty?
Absolutely not. Since the Mizzler does not integrate into any of your systems components or wiring, there is no reason your manufacturer’s warranty will be impacted.
Q. How long is the warranty period?
Upon registration, all elements of the system are warranted for a period of 5 years.
Q. Won’t this make a muddy wet mess?
No. The water used is directed inward onto the condensing coil, it drips down and through the base filter into the recycling tank to be reused again. No waste. No swamp. No mess.
Q. Is it noisy when it’s running?
It is actually very quiet and would easily drowned out by the operating sound of your cooling unit itself.
Q. Can the Mizzler be installed on commercial systems?
Absolutely. All types of split, multi-split and ducted systems up to 10 tons, along with small footprint commercial refrigeration units.
