What Is Ductless Air Conditioning?

Ductless air conditioning systems aren’t connected to a duct network but rather blow conditioned air directly into the living space. These systems are often referred to as ductless mini splits. Mini refers to the overall size of the system relative to central air conditioning and split refers to there being an outside unit, which houses the condenser, and an indoor unit, which contains the evaporator and air handler. There are two core options available when considering ductless air conditioning installation: cooling only and heat pump. As the name suggests, cooling-only mini-split systems provide only cooled air whereas a heat pump can heat your home or business as well.

Signs You Need to Replace Your Ductless Air Conditioner

A well-maintained ductless mini split will typically last between 15 to 20 years. If your system hasn’t experienced any major problems, the 15-year mark is a good time to begin considering proactive ductless air conditioning installation as it will save you money over time. You should also monitor your energy bills and watch for unexplained spikes in usage. If you experience a spike, you should have your ductless AC professionally inspected. The frequent need for repairs is cause for concern and even more so as the unit gets up there in age. You should also watch for the common trouble signs, which include odd noises, strange smells, weak airflow, inconsistent cooling in the living space, having to adjust the thermostat often, intermittent shutoffs, and a unit that runs for too long or too short a period.

Benefits of a Ductless Heat Pump

The Benefits of Ductless AC

Ductless air conditioning installation is a viable option for practically any home or business, and that also includes older buildings that may not have ductwork installed. A ductless air conditioner is a relatively affordable HVAC option and provides excellent value over the life of the equipment. Mini-splits are highly efficient and a strong choice for the environment and your monthly budget. They provide a great deal of flexibility in how and where you can install them. This makes them a good option for home additions and above-garage apartments, and you can opt for multiple indoor units connected to a singular outdoor unit, which is an affordable way to achieve zoned HVAC.

Central Air Conditioning Systems

Sanks installs central AC units as well, and we can do that for your home or business whether you currently have ducts or needed them installed. If you’re deciding between central and ductless air conditioning installation, we have consultants available to answer your questions and help you choose the best system for you. There are pros and cons to both approaches. If you want to cool an entire home or business, central air will generally cost less over time and will likely cost less upfront if you already have ductwork installed. Central air is less intrusive as we’d install it out of sight, such as in the attic, and if you want zoned HVAC, know that zoning is possible with central systems as well.

Residential & Commercial Ductless Air Conditioning Installation

Our company specializes in both commercial and residential ductless air conditioning installation and offers these services to our clients throughout Montgomery, Bucks, and Philadelphia counties.

Ductless AC Repair Services

Sanks has certified AC repair technicians who specialize in ductless systems. If you experience a problem with your mini-split, how you should proceed depends on the age of the system and the extent of the repair. In most cases, replacement is not required, and we can carry out a precision air conditioner repair that restores your ductless system to like-new condition and provides you peace of mind in the years ahead.

Ductless AC Maintenance Services

Ductless air conditioning systems need routine maintenance because the warranty requires it but also because it will extend the life of your equipment and reduce your costs long term. Sanks recommends a tune-up in spring prior to needing the air conditioner, and if you have a heat pump, then you should schedule service again in the fall prior to needing the heat. During your service appointment, we’ll perform a multi-point inspection, clean the system, check and top off the refrigerant, correct any wear and tear, and calibrate the thermostat. Our tune-up services are available to you as needed, but you may want to take advantage of our maintenance plan. It ensures that your HVAC equipment is serviced on schedule and saves you money, and it comes with additional perks, such as a 10% discount on any repairs.
