You may benefit from installing a mini-split AC in Lakeside, CA, even if you own a central cooling unit. After all, you may have a garage or tool shed separate from the rest of the home, and no ducted system would reach it. Or you may have had a room addition built. Comfort Bros Heating, Air & Plumbing is your go-to Lakeside, CA. HVAC Company!

If you’re building a home from the ground up, consider ductless AC installation because it’s often a good substitute for ducted units. On the other hand, if your home is historic and can’t structurally support a duct system, mini-splits will be your best bet as Mini-Splits don’t require any traditional ductwork!

Mini-Split AC for Lakeside Residents

A mini-split, or ductless AC, has three parts: compressor, air handler, and refrigerant line. The first goes outside, the second inside the room you want to cool, and the third connects them. You have a lot of leeway as to where to situate things. The piping can extend up to 50 feet, and the air handler is a compact device that can fit in rooms of every style. You could even hang the air handler from the ceiling.

These are the main reasons to own a mini-split:
  • Durability and energy efficiency
  • Features like variable-speed operation
  • Multi-zone cooling with multiple thermostats
  • Directional airflow for added comfort

By durability, we mean that a ductless air handler could, with regular maintenance, last up to three decades. Variable-speed operation can contribute to this because it avoids the wear and tear that comes with continually switching a system on and off. Mini-splits are efficient because they lose none of their cool air the way ducts do. You could enjoy a low monthly utility bill on account of it.

Once or twice a year, you should expect to get a repair done for your unit, though. Parts wear out from the heat, and leaks may develop. At the very least, it’s important to get professional maintenance once a year. A tune-up can cover myriad of things, starting with filter replacement and thermostat calibration. The technician would visually inspect the entire system, clean the coils, tighten loose connections, and check for proper start-up and adequate air pressure.
