Signs You Need Ductless Mini-Split Installation or Replacement

A ductless mini-split may be the right heating and cooling solution for you if you need:

  • Flexibility: Each room with a ductless mini-split will have a thermostat and control over its own temperature. Plus, using the same system to heat and cool allows you to make quick temperature shifts when you need it.
  • Ease of installation: Because they don’t require new or existing ductwork, a mini-split system is faster, easier, and cheaper to install than a traditional HVAC system.
  • Energy efficiency: It’s common for traditional HVAC systems to leak and become inefficient. Ductless systems won’t have this problem – and because you can control the temperature of each room, you have more control over your comfort and energy bills.

For your existing ductless mini-split, keep an eye out for signs that it may need to be replaced. These signs include poor performance, leaking fluids, high energy bills, strange sounds, or ice on the outdoor unit.

If any of these signs sound like you, call (864) 641-4011 today to schedule an appointment with South Carolina’s ductless mini-split installation and replacement experts.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ductless Mini-Split Installation and Replacement

Do I need a mini-split in every room?

You need an indoor unit (air handler) for every room that you want to be cooled with a ductless system. The size of the indoor units will depend on the size of each room.

What size ductless mini-split do I need?

If you know the square footage of the room you want to cool, multiply that number by 25 to determine the British thermal units (BTUs) required to heat or cool that room effectively.

Can I install a ductless mini-split myself?

With no ductwork and only a few lines connecting the indoor and outdoor units, ductless mini-splits may seem simple to install. However, while they’re simple for a trained and qualified professional to install, a ductless mini-split installation requires precise measurements and calculations, meaning that a small oversight can seriously impact its performance and efficiency.

How does a ductless HVAC system work?

A ductless AC or mini-split works similarly to central air conditioners: it absorbs the heat and moisture from the warm air in your home, then transfers the heat and moisture outside. Because these units are designed to cool an individual room, they can be highly efficient if you use one part of your home more than the rest. Ductless AC units use three components:

  1. The evaporator unit circulates the air in the room being cooled.
  2. The conduit connects the indoor unit to the outdoor unit.
  3. The condenser sits outside of the house and transfers heat outside.

With just these three parts, ductless AC units can cool individual rooms without any ductwork like central air conditioning.

How efficient are ductless AC systems?

Think of a ductless AC as the more nimble brother to central air. Because ductless AC systems can cool a single room at a time, they are impressively efficient and can target areas of your home that are harder to cool, like new home additions, or even just the rooms where you want more cooling, like a home gym.

Is a mini-split system worth it?

That depends on your circumstances. Ductless mini-splits are typically much more efficient than other methods of heating and cooling, and they save you the cost of having to install ductwork. However, they can have a higher upfront cost, so consult with an HVAC professional to determine if the many benefits outweigh the expense.
