A ductless AC is one of the best alternatives to central air conditioning on the market today. They are widely celebrated for their increased efficiency, their extended lifespan, their ease of installation, and their ability to accommodate different cooling needs throughout the home. These units can last up to two times longer than a traditional air conditioner, and they are not subject to a loss of cold or hot air because they do not have ductwork.
After you have called AirMAX and expressed your desire to have a ductless system, you may be surprised at how quick and effortless the installation process is. We will begin by determining the size of the system that you need as well as how many indoor units you want. If you need more than four indoor units, additional outdoor units will be required. We will then make a small hole in your home and attach indoor and outdoor units using electrical wires, drain lines, and refrigerant lines.
The final step is to test the system and then inform you on how to best care for your system. You will want to check with a technician to make sure your electrical system is up to code for a mini split ac installation before proceeding. This type of AC installation can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000 or more if there are any complications. At AIRMAX, we offer straightforward pricing so that you know exactly how much your installation will cost.
Ductless AC Repair Services
While these systems can last a very long time, they will need occasional repairs and service. We provide AC repair near me for ductless systems, and we are always here when your unit breaks down or stops cooling your home effectively.
Your ductless system may need to be repaired if the amount of air coming from the system diminishes, the temperature is too warm, the indoor or outdoor control board no longer works properly, or the system is leaking refrigerant. These systems can sometimes experience electrical problems as well, and if they haven’t been properly installed they may not work efficiently.
At AirMAX, we offer maintenance appointments to keep some of these repairs at bay. We will clean the system and the filter, flush the drain line, check for leaks, and make sure the unit was installed properly. We check electrical connections and see if the control board is still in good condition.
Maintaining Your AC System
Your ductless air conditioning system requires care and attention both by the homeowner and their HVAC technician. Maintenance starts with the installation. Always ensure that your ductless system is installed and serviced by a technician that is experienced in dealing with this unique type of system. At AirMAX we are fully qualified to install and repair ductless systems.
The next step is to make sure your system stays clean inside and out. The outdoor unit should be kept clear of any dirt, leaves, and other debris. You can periodically wipe the outside with a wet towel and make sure the vents are not obstructed. Next, make sure both indoor and outdoor units have plenty of space around them. Finally, clean or change filters in accordance with manufacturer recommendations, and always call our team if you feel like your unit is running less efficiently.
