Posted by

ductless mini-split If you’re looking to install a new air conditioner then you’d be wise to consider a ductless mini split air conditioner. AC-World is here to help you find the right choice for your home or business but first we want to answer one of the most common questions we get: How hard is it to install a ductless mini split air conditioner?

These air conditioners are easier to install than other options

Generally speaking, it’s much easier to install a ductless mini split air conditioner compared to the process of installing a standard AC system. Not only do you not need to add duct work, but the hook up between the exterior and interior units requires nothing more than a three-inch hole through your wall. This hole allows for the pipe and electrical wires to connect.

Your exterior unit can be relatively far away from your interior unit

Another advantage to the installation of a ductless heating and cooling system is the fact that when you buy from AC-World, they come with connecting pipes of almost 25 feet. This allows you to put your exterior unit as far away as 24.6 from your interior evaporator – which means you can keep rooms on the front of your home or office cool while placing the compressor in a more hidden spot. If you really don’t want the compressor in the way, then you can pay a little extra to get wall brackets that allow for it to be installed off the ground.

You’ll have more flexibility in interior design

When you choose a ductless mini split air conditioner, you’ll have a lot more flexibility with the way your home is designed. For example, you can install an air handler flush with your ceiling or you can mount it on the wall. Each interior unit is about eight inches deep and comes with its own high-tech jacket. We also include remote controls in each AC and heating kit, which allows you to turn the unit on and off and adjust the heating or cooling even if the evaporator is high up on the wall.
