What are ductless mini-split systems?

Ductless mini-split systems are the perfect retrofit air conditioning and heating solution for homes without ductwork—and they’re also ideal as secondary cooling or heating systems for when you only need to condition the air in one room or area of your home.

Much like a standard air-source heat pumps, mini-splits have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units.

Due to their size, installing a ductless system is very minimally invasive, making it a great option for many homeowners.

When is it time for a replacement?

It’s always difficult to know when repairs just won’t cut it any more and a replacement is necessary. The experts at James A. Wheat & Sons have a few things to be on the lookout for when it comes to ductless mini-split replacements:

  • Age of the system: if the system is over 10 years old, it’s time to start thinking about a replacement. Many times, the improvement in efficiency alone will be worth a replacement, and that’s not taking into account the cost of repairs.
  • Performance of the system: if you’re having difficulty maintaining a consistent, comfortable temperature and repairs haven’t alleviated the situation, a replacement is probably your best option.
  • Cost of the system: just how much is your aging system costing you in energy bills and repairs? If these numbers start rising, it can be more cost-effective for you to replace the system entirely.

If you’re not sure what the diagnosis is for your ductless mini-split system is, it’s best to call the professionals at James A. Wheat & Sons. We can assess your system and make the best recommendations for moving forward. Call us today to get started!
