Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps
Although you should always have a professional air conditioning contractor install your ductless mini-split air conditioner, the installation process is fairly simple to do on your own. If you know how to run the electrical to your outdoor unit, setting up your new air conditioner can be done within a couple of hours.
Remember however, that the manufacturer’s warranty is only covered if the unit is installed by a licensed contractor, so we don’t recommend installing it on your own.
If you feel that you can do this on your own, and don’t expect to get reimbursed by the manufacturer for any faulty parts, by all means, do it on your own. Many installers can charge upwards of $1,000 to $2,000 to for a basic installation of a ductless mini-split.
We’ve been working with some great installers over the past few years and charge only $1,299.00 for a basic 12,000 BTU ductless mini-split unit and installation within the Los Angeles area. And that includes a 15′ line-set!
Ductless mini-splits are the perfect alternative to a central HVAC system that can run into the many thousands of dollars. They are much more attractive than any window or wall air conditioner and are much more efficient as well! Imagine that you are only going to be in your bedroom at night and don’t want to run your entire home unit. Just turn on your bedroom ductless mini-split unit. When your room reaches the desired temperature, your air conditioners’ compressor will turn off and your fan will continue to circulate the cool air. You can save thousands of dollars over the life of your air conditioner!
In the summer, heat your room using the heat-pump feature. But remember, if you are in a climate where the temperature can get below 40 degrees, purchase a unit that has a back-up heat-strip so your unit won’t freeze!
