Believe it or not, there are many different types of mini-splits. The kind of mini split you would need would depend on several factors: Is it a home or a business? Do you have a lot of square footage? Do you want to cool/heat every room? Do you want one in the ceiling? On the wall? In the floor? We can help you determine, with one of our FREE ESTIMATES, exactly what you need.
We believe here at Priority 1 HVAC that mini splits are the future. For one, mini splits do not take up a lot of space. Not to mention, they are extremely efficient!
People also love the fact that they have total control over the temperature in each room! Mini splits are extremely quiet.
You don’t need to heat or cool the entire house at the same time. Only do so in the rooms that you are using.
No. Not at all. That’s what the misconception is, and it’s easy to understand why. In fact, your electric bill should go way down. Here’s why- Mini Splits do not work off of AC voltage. Mini Splits work off of DC voltage.

A mini-split air conditioner refers to a heating and cooling system designed to give you control of temperatures in individual spaces. They are comprised of two primary components. Outside, there will be a compressor/condenser. Inside is the evaporator, which you could describe as the indoor air-handling unit or units.
Unlike a central air conditioner that supplies cool air to an entire space using ductwork, mini split AC does not require ductwork. Each unit targets a specific room or area in a home.
If your home or business requires heating and cooling in specific areas at specific times, rather than an entire building all at once, a ductless mini split system will use a lot less energy than a traditional AC system, and therefore will save a significant amount of money in heating and cooling costs. A mini split AC unit is ideal for scenarios where the user requires efficient, economic temperature control for specific rooms or areas.
While they can be more expensive to have installed, you will experience cost savings over time, because of their efficiency, and the level of control they afford to the user. So, if you are wondering if a mini split system is worth the investment, our customers are pleased with their ability to focus on individual rooms using this system. Also, a mini split installation can have several indoor air handling units connected to a single outdoor unit.
Despite its ability to target specific rooms, a mini split system will still have the power to cool or heat an entire house. An effective mini split AC installation will allow zoning or heating and cooling of the whole house, as desired by the user.
Many users leave their mini split systems running all the time because they are very energy efficient. If you do not want to turn yours off, you can consider turning the thermostat down a few degrees overnight, or while you are away from home.
Our licensed mini split air conditioning installation technicians are familiar with all major brands of air conditioning units and will be able to mount your indoor air handlers and outdoor unit or units to ensure maximum efficiency and safety for your home.
Inside, our ductless AC installers will decide upon a location that is free of obstructions, typically at least six feet from the floor. The unit will then normally be attached to the wall via a wall bracket, ensuring that it is leveled correctly for optimum operation.
Installers will lead refrigerant lines, condensate drainage, and communication cables through a small hole in the wall to the outdoor unit in the least obstructive and most efficient manner. The mini split system can remove moisture from the air without ductwork.
You can expect the outdoor unit to be placed in accordance with local codes, the structure of the house, and for the sake of convenience. Again, mini split air conditioner installation will include hiding the visibility of drainage lines to protect the aesthetic appeal of the property.
It is essential to have your mini split AC system installed by a trained professional with experience in not only HVAC, but with mini split systems in particular. An oversized air handler, or one that is installed in a poor position, can waste energy. The advantage of a mini split system is the control it provides over individual spaces, so it is critical to have it installed by a trained technician so you can enjoy those benefits and the units can run at peak efficiency. Because of their energy efficiency, it could add up to a significant cost saving over the life of the unit compared to a window air conditioner.
Mini splits are ideal in homes where ductwork is undesirable, homes with many separate areas with different heating needs, or particularly energy efficient homes that require a small space conditioning system.
