Every homeowner wants a properly working heating and cooling system for their home, one that will keep every member of the family comfortable through the most extreme conditions year-round. However, not all homes have the ductwork necessary to support a central air conditioner or furnace.

If you live in or around Minneapolis, MN and are interested in having a new ductless heating and cooling system installed in your home, now is the time to call Total Comfort for a ductless air conditioner in Minneapolis–St. Paul. We have years of experience installing, maintaining, and ensuring the proper operation of ductless (mini split AC) HVAC systems and would be happy to do the same for you.

Advantages of Ductless HVAC Systems

  1. General Benefits: Mini-split air conditioners heat and cool your environment via wall-mounted units. They don’t need ductwork, so they’re perfect for properties with challenging architectural features. If your family fights over thermostat settings, a mini-split system can deliver a different temperature in every room.
  2. Reduced Noise: Ductwork can be noisy. The metal expands and contracts, causing noise as it does so. Traditional HVAC units also rely on variable speed fans too, and they come with their own noise. If ambient sounds make you anxious, a ductless system might be the HVAC choice for you.
  3. Improved Filtration: HEPA filters use UV filtration to supplement other filters, eliminating bacteria and mold in addition to other allergens. If you live with a family member who has a compromised immune system, a HEPA unit could have important health benefits for you.
  4. Energy Efficiency: Ductless systems don’t require you to clean or maintain any ductwork. They retain their cooling powers better and can reduce your energy consumption by 30% or more.
  5. No Need for Renovation: Traditional HVAC systems require major renovation. Compared to ductless systems which can be installed in only one or two days, depending on the size of the unit. Your air handlers only need mounting frames and a few holes, so installation won’t be a major disruption.
  6. Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems: Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems connect as many as 48 units into the same system, letting you cool some rooms while you heat others.

Ductless Heating and Cooling System Installation

Before selecting a ductless HVAC system for your home, it’s good to know if it is a good fit. Some homes are too small to support a full-sized duct system. High-velocity comfort systems and ductless heating and cooling systems are two solutions designed primarily for homes too small to support the installation of full-sized ductwork for a central air-conditioning system. Such homes often have boilers for heating, but cooling has long been a major concern. If this is the case, or if your current duct system requires an upgrade that is out of your price range, a mini split air conditioning system may be the best option for you.

In Minneapolis, MN, ductless heating and cooling system installation involves the placement of a condenser/compressor outside your home to condition refrigerant. Refrigerant is either heated or cooled and then moved to satellite units inside your home. In these satellite units are blower fans that distribute cold or warm air.

The installation process for ductless HVAC systems takes less than a day, and the number of indoor satellite units is scalable to match the number of rooms or floors in your home for which you’d like heating and cooling.

Ductless Heating and Cooling System Maintenance

Because a mini split AC is such a major investment, it is important that it is properly maintained. For that reason, we highly recommend a preventive maintenance program which includes a visit from a trained technician. Our technicians will check the compressor for signs of damage or wear, test all electrical connections, calibrate the thermostats in each indoor satellite unit and check your system as a whole to ensure your ductless HVAC system is ready for the coming heating or cooling season.

Ductless Heating and Cooling System Repairs

Repairs are a common necessity for any indoor heating or cooling system. If you notice your system is not heating or cooling properly any longer or if it is making strange sounds that it has not before, you should call for service as soon as possible.
