Ductless HVAC maintenance is quite easy and can be done by yourself if desired. However, there are things that only a professional can handle and identify before they become bigger thorns in your flesh. Some basic maintenance activities include cleaning both the indoor and outdoor units, removing the filters from your indoor component and dusting them thoroughly, looking at all the pipes connected with your system for blockages and leaks, and checking the indoor and outdoor units to ensure there are no obstructions. In addition to the basics that can be done by yourself, our trained professionals check the unit’s hoses for blockages and refrigerant leaks, and electrical connections, as well as run capacitors, during your annual maintenance appointment.

Ductless HVAC Installation

Ductless HVAC installation is where the lifetime of your home’s ductless air conditioner begins. This is why it’s important for you to treat this service with care. It is absolutely vital that you have professionals perform this work. Our team members are always here to help you with this.

Most ductless HVAC systems are installed by a professional, as the refrigerant line needs to be cut and subsequently charged. However, mini split systems have been designed to be easy to install, as opposed to other air conditioning systems that have some complexities. While this might save you some money, it can also be costly, especially if you miss a step in the process.

Select and Size Your System

Before you select the equipment, a qualified dealer will run a complete set of load calculations to determine the exact capacity requirements for each heating and cooling zone. Indoor units are available in different capacities, with outdoor condensing units matched to meet the total combined load of the indoor units.

Install the Outdoor Unit

The installation of the outdoor condensing unit is relatively straightforward. A concrete pad should be poured on a level base no closer than one foot from an exterior wall. Polyethylene or reinforced rubber pads can also be used as a substitute for concrete. The connectors are to face the house, and avoid blocking the vents with shrubbery or other obstructions.

Run the Refrigerant Lines

Refrigerant lines are made of copper and insulated with closed cell rubber foam and are usually shielded by a conduit that runs alongside the condensate drain and power cable. The defrost wire should run from the condensing unit to the site of the indoor installation, along with the refrigerant lines and the electrical wires.

Install the Indoor Unit

The indoor unit will be installed high on an interior wall or in the ceiling. This depends on the style of fan coil you choose. A 3-inch hole must be drilled through an exterior wall directly behind the location where the unit will be positioned. Couplings are attached to connect the indoor and outdoor units, to complete the electrical connections.

Finally, the system is charged with refrigerant and tested to ascertain it is operating to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Ductless HVAC Repair

It’s inevitable to run into a repair need eventually. This is especially true if you use your ductless unit for air conditioning and heating. If you want prompt ductless repair work that doesn’t sacrifice quality for time, then it’s important to schedule an appointment with us.

All Types of Ductless HVAC Repairs You May Need

Ductless ACs are similar to central air conditioners in the way they work and remain one of the best ways of cooling your home without the use of ductwork. However, repairs may be common with ductless units as compared to traditional units and some of the reasons for calling an HVAC professional include low refrigerant due to loose connections or corrosion, thermostat trouble as a result of wiring, and aesthetics due to faulty installation.
