Pioneer WYD009A43-L

Ductless mini split air conditioning systems are becoming ever more popular because of their efficiency and ease of installation. Pioneer, a lesser known brand in North America, has taken the market by storm with their WYD009A43-L system. This model can be used all year long, as it is not only capable of cooling but it will heat your home as well. This system is packed with additional features other brands don’t offer.

Review Details

One of the best features about the WYD009A43-L units is they can be installed in various different rooms in the home and work independently of each other. This means a sun room can be set to cool more than another room that gets less sunlight. Additionally, Pioneer has included 4 operating modes – cooling/heating/dehumidification/ventilation. This gives the consumer truly versatile choice when it comes to indoor air comfort.
Airflow is also important and for this reason Pioneer has made this model so the louvers will automatically swing quietly in order to deliver cool/warm air where it’s needed most.

The WYD009A43-L also comes complete with an installation kit which means many consumers will not have the need for a professional installation.

What We Liked

  • Unique Night-Time Mode
    When in the night-time mode, this air conditioning system will automatically adopt your naturally changing temperature levels as you sleep.
  • Easy to Use Controls
    The Pioneer WYD009A43-L comes with infrared wireless LCD remote control and easy to use digital LED display main control panels.
  • Versatile Air Comfort
    No matter what temperature you desire in each room of your home, the WYD009A43-L has been designed so it will work independently of the other units installed.
  • Energy Efficient
    Equipped with a timer, this model can be set to stop and start at your desired time which helps to keep energy bills down.
  • Auto Re-Start
    If the power fails in your home, this unit will automatically re-start at the previous settings when power returns, eliminating the need to re-program.

What We Didn't Like

  • Ease of Installation
    Pioneer has made it as easy as possible to install this system. However, if you intend to purchase this for the first time, it might be wise to ask a professional.
  • Weighty Outdoor Unit
    The outdoor unit weighs approximately 70lbs so be prepared to get help lifting it.


Pioneer may not be a brand that instantly springs to mind when you’re looking for a mini split air conditioning system. However, the WYD009A43-L is proof this manufacturer is working hard to break into the market. This model is incredibly well priced and packed with features that many top name brands don’t offer. It has been designed for all year round indoor air comfort and can be used in both residential and commercial buildings.
