Factors to Consider Before Installing Ductless Mini Split ACs
Before you make the decision to install a ductless mini split AC, make sure there are no restrictions set by your residential community. For example, some condominium associations may not allow ductless systems since the condenser unit will stick out from a balcony or window.
If your home is cleared for ductless mini split installation, contact our Austin AC contractors for a consultation and estimate.
Selecting the Right System
The team at Grande Air Solutions will assess your cooling needs to calculate the proper AC size. Oversized or undersized units will work less efficiently (just like their forced-air counterparts).
We will also discuss the number of indoor units (air handlers) you would like to install. Some homeowners have a central HVAC system and just want one ductless mini split for a specific room.
Other properties may need several indoor units installed if they are replacing their forced-air system with a ductless unit. Our experts will help you determine the right amount and the ideal locations for placement.
Do Ductless Mini Splits Require Maintenance?
Although ductless ACs seem less complicated than forced-air systems, this doesn’t mean they are easier to maintain or maintenance-free. Keep in mind that ductless mini splits have an indoor and outdoor unit, plus pipes, coils, and a filter—just like standard air conditioners. These parts will need to be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis.
In a way, maintaining ductless mini split ACs requires greater effort on your part. Unlike forced-air systems (where the filter can be easily replaced every three months), filters in ductless mini splits need to be removed and washed once a month. Neglecting routine filter cleaning can cause debris to build up in the unit, which will require professional cleaning or repair to fix.
