Ductless Mini Split

What Are Ductless Mini Splits?

Traditional central heating and cooling systems provide comfort by cooling in the summer and heating in the winter. However, they aren’t a viable option for every household or commercial space. If you have an older property without ducts, a centralized heating and cooling system could prove impossible to install. If you have a smaller space to temperature control, a standard heat pump may not warrant the cost. To solve these different environmental needs, we can install ductless mini splits. A ductless mini split offers an individual fan and evaporator unit for each room, or a chosen room.

This ductless system allows you to better control the temperature of each room and the rooms that are not being used regularly, as they can be turned off to save energy. This room-to-room control system allows you to lower energy costs and save on your electricity bills. They offer a simple, effective and efficient method of cooling and heating your home.

Looking to Install a Ductless Mini Split at Your Home or Office?

The installation of a ductless mini split unit isn’t just a time-laborious job, but it is also something you shouldn’t try and do by yourself. Our technicians are red seal certified, as well as licensed, bonded and insured. Make sure you have your ductless mini split installed by a professional.

The first step in choosing the right ductless mini split is to consider the size of your room. If you aren’t sure, ask us, we are here to help you find the right solution for your space and budget. Once a mini split is chosen, the indoor unit is installed on the room’s wall adjacent to the exterior of the building. A pipe will connect to the outdoor section of the unit. You can decide to place your mini split on the ground, have it securely fastened to a wall, or installed to your rooftop. This process is followed by wiring and activating an electrical connection to switch on the ductless mini split, which our experienced technician will look after.

Some Frequently Asked Questions about Mini Split Installations

How Much Does It Cost to Install a Ductless Mini Split?

When you are planning to install a ductless mini split (or a few mini splits) in your Nanaimo or Vancouver Island home, it is important for you to consider the following points as they might affect your installation cost:

  • The total number of rooms where mini split systems need to be installed.

  • The size (tonnage) of all your mini split systems.
  • The efficiency of your mini splits to provide even coverage across the room.
  • Energy-efficient or manufacturer rebates available.

Another factor that can affect your mini split’s installation cost is, of course, who you hire. Contact us for safe, budget-friendly installation of your ductless mini split in Nanaimo, or across surrounding areas of Vancouver Island. 

What Are the Benefits of Installing Ductless Mini Splits?

You can enjoy the following benefits of ductless mini splits:

  • The systems are fast to install.

  • The air filters help improve air quality and the systems are relatively noiseless.
  • They are less expensive than standard central HVAC or heat pump systems.
  • Flexible in use and location.
  • They do not require ductwork.

When Do You Need a Ductless Mini Split Repair?

Just like ducted split HVAC systems, mini split systems also need routine maintenance and servicing. Look out for the following problems and give us a call if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  • Refrigerant leaks.

  • A dusty, dirty coil or blower.
  • Dirty filters.
  • Control board failure.
  • Poor installation quality between indoor/outdoor units.
  • An indoor unit fails to run.
  • An indoor unit blows air that’s not properly conditioned.
  • The outdoor unit isn’t working.
  • Unusual sounds are coming from the system.

If your reason is not listed above, call us and explain what is going on. We will try and diagnose over the phone, or we can send one of our technicians to determine if there is an issue. Our trained professionals will know how to diagnose and repair your mini split problem in a timely and budget-friendly manner.

Interested in Knowing the Details of How We Can Help You?

At Strategic Mechanical, our trained technicians follow a step-by-step process to repair and maintain your ductless mini splits:

  • Cleanliness inspection: We’ll look for clogging in the air filters, coils and blowers that might cause airflow issues.
  • Leak inspection: We’ll look for refrigerant leaks through visual inspection or, if required, with a leak detector dye.
  • Line and drain flushing: A clogged drain line can hamper mini split performance; we’ll clear if necessary.
  • Electrical inspection: We’ll check all wiring for problems. This inspection will also reflect a bad control board if that's the problem.
