Why Consider a Mini-Split Installation?

Read more

A mini-split installation can be a game changer for home comfort. For starters, a mini-split system is a type of air conditioner that doesn't need ducts to keep your home cool — unlike a central air unit. A mini-split, also known as a ductless mini-split system, consists of indoor and outdoor units. The outdoor condenser does the heavy lifting, while the indoor units help distribute cool air to different rooms in your house. 

As a result, you can have multiple indoor units connected to one outdoor unit, meaning you can manage temperatures in multiple rooms individually. This allows for greater temperature control, allowing you to make rooms cooler or warmer depending on the preferences of your family members. Plus, mini-split air conditioners are way more efficient than a central ac unit or window unit, especially for one room or areas that don't have existing ductwork.

While mini-split installation costs might seem hefty at first, most homeowners find that the savings on their monthly utility bills make up for it in the long run. In addition, you'll also avoid the dust and other obstructions that can build up in duct systems, leading to cleaner, healthier air. 

The mini-split installation process involves setting up the outdoor units on a level surface, providing power via a dedicated electrical circuit, and then connecting the indoor and outdoor units through refrigerant lines and a drain line system. For these reasons and more, the long-term benefits of a ductless system make it a good choice for many homeowners.

Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Mini-Split

Wondering when it's time to replace your existing mini-split system. The answer can vary greatly, so here's a look at some signs that indicate it's time to say goodbye to your current system. 

If your mini-split air conditioner isn't keeping rooms as cool as it used to, or if it's having trouble maintaining the set temperature, those are telltale signs of normal wear and tear. Water leaks from the indoor units or a significant increase in your energy bill also suggest issues with your mini-split unit. If you find that your mini-split system needs more frequent repairs, or if the heating and cooling system is over 10-15 years old, it might be time to consider a replacement HVAC system. 

In addition, the indoor and outdoor units should be checked for any rust or damage, and the electrical connections and refrigerant lines should be examined for any faults. A significant buildup of dust in your air handler or other wall equipment might also be a sign that your ductless mini-split is not long for this world. 

While it is possible to maintain components of your existing system, the repair and maintenance costs might exceed the cost of a new mini-split installation at some point. So, if you've been grappling with these issues with your mini-split air conditioner, it's probably time to start thinking about installing a new cool heating unit!

Mini-Split Installation and Replacement FAQ

While it's technically possible for a handy homeowner to attempt a mini-split installation themselves, it's not generally recommended. Mini-split systems require careful installation, including managing refrigerant lines, electrical connections, and setting up the outdoor unit properly. All these tasks are usually best handled by a trained HVAC professional.
The initial installation cost of a mini-split system can sometimes be higher than that of traditional central air conditioning systems. However, mini-split air conditioners often prove more cost-effective in the long run due to their energy efficiency and the ability to cool or heat specific rooms, which helps reduce overall utility costs.
The time it takes to install a mini-split system can vary depending on the complexity of the project. A basic single-zone system installation might be completed in a day, but for more complex multi-zone systems, it could take several days.
Covering your outdoor unit of a mini-split system in the winter is usually not recommended. These systems are designed to withstand various weather conditions, including snow and cold temperatures. Covering the unit might actually interfere with its function and cause issues.
Many mini-split systems can operate effectively even in colder temperatures. Some modern models can provide heating in outdoor temperatures as low as -15°F to -5°F. However, the efficiency of the system can decrease as the temperature drops.
