If you are considering having installation of a ductless mini split for your home’s air conditioning, then you probably already know about the many benefits of these systems: high energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, zone control cooling, and none of the various repair troubles that ductwork can present. But you may still be hesitant about installing one because you aren’t sure how much work is involved.
First, let us reassure you that all the work—aside from deciding that you want a ductless mini split in the first place—you can leave to professionals. In fact, you should leave it to the professionals. It’s important that the job gets done right the first time so you have the maximum benefits from your new system with few repair issues in the foreseeable future.
Second, ductless mini split heat pumps are one of the easier residential comfort systems to install. For professionals, this is usually a speedy job that they will have finished in a short time so you can start enjoying your new cooling for the warm weather right away.
Ductless mini split installation
Hooking up a new ductless cooling system involves two stages: setting up the outdoor unit, and mounting and connecting the indoor air handlers. The outdoor unit is put in place the same as any air conditioner condenser cabinet. The air handlers are small units that are easy for the installers to mount onto the walls inside the house. The installers first have to place mounting frames on the walls and drill holes through the walls to run the condensate, refrigerant, and power lines. Then the air handlers attach easily and firmly on to the mounting units and the installers run the lines out the walls and attach them to the outdoor unit.
And that is really all that need to be done: there’s no lugging into the house a huge indoor air handler and connecting it to the ductwork in some remote part of your home. It’s a fast and clean process, and you’ll love the results once it’s turned on and working.
