When a picturesque summer afternoon gets a little too toasty, you want to have a forceful air conditioning solution. But if your home doesn’t have ductwork, you might be relying on loud, inefficient window AC units. At Tasha Fuels & Propane, we have a solution to improve your summertime comfort for the long haul — a ductless mini-split cooling system.
Ductless mini-splits offer energy-efficient home cooling that requires no ductwork. They even provide zoned cooling, enabling you to keep different parts of your home set to different temperatures. Our team of skilled HVAC technicians can install your ductless system. We can also provide maintenance services and repairs, should the need arise.
A network of indoor units connects to an outdoor compressor unit via thin refrigerant lines that pass through your exterior walls. Each indoor unit handles its own zone’s cooling needs. Its fan and evaporator draw in warm air from your living space. This air is cooled en route to the compressor, then returned to your rooms.
As you might imagine, ductless mini-split systems are fantastically adaptable for a wide range of spaces.
Nationwide estimates for mini-split installation vary significantly and depend on the number and efficiency of indoor units you install. Our experienced HVAC team will explain your options and help you identify a product that works for your home and budget.
Would you drive your car all year without changing the oil and filters or getting a tune-up? Of course not! Ignoring this maintenance would lower its fuel efficiency, shorten its lifespan and increase the chance of a roadside breakdown.
The same thing is true of your home’s ductless mini-splits. If you neglect proper maintenance, they’ll cost more to operate and be more prone to failure. On the other hand, a ductless system that receives regular maintenance can last 20 or more years before needing to be replaced!
The team at Tasha Fuels & Propane does comprehensive mini-split tune-ups that improve system efficiency and catch issues that, if left unattended, can lead to expensive repairs. We recommend that you schedule your AC tune-up in the spring before you need the equipment to cool your home. Call our office or contact us online at any time to schedule an appointment.
Q: Are ductless mini-splits expensive?
A: While ductless mini-split equipment can have a higher upfront cost than central AC equipment, you will experience multiple cost-saving efficiencies throughout its lifespan:
Q: Will ductless mini-splits clash with my indoor décor?
A: Ductless systems can be mounted just about anywhere. Our experienced and resourceful technicians will find the perfect location, so the wall unit cools effectively but stays out of sight.
Q: What is the lifespan of a ductless mini-split unit?
A: While usage and maintenance will affect the lifespan of any home cooling system, mini-splits tend to have a longer service life than central A/C equipment. A well-maintained ductless system will run for 20 years or more.
Q: How many zones can my ductless mini-split system have?
A: Typically, up to four indoor units can connect to a single outdoor compressor. If you need more than four zones, you’ll likely need to install a second outdoor unit. With that said, our team will work with you to arrange the most efficient home cooling with the least amount of equipment.
