Mini Split Systems

Mini-Split System Installations

If you're having trouble regulating the temperature in your home, you may want to consider a mini-split system. Unlike traditional central air systems and heating systems, mini-split systems allow you to control the temperature in each room of your entire house.

At American Comfort Services, we have installed many Raleigh mini split systems and can help you decide if it's the right fit for your home.

What is a Mini-Split System?

Mini-splits are heating systems and central air systems that allow you to control the temperatures in each room of your home.

They come with two main components, an outdoor compressor, and an indoor air-handling unit. They are easy to install and generally only require one three-inch hole through a wall to install the conduit. This is where the power and communication cables are located as well as the copper tubing and condensation drain line that links the outdoor and indoor units.

Many people who are building a new home opt for mini-split systems. They can also be added to homes with non-ducted heating systems and can make good retrofit add-ons.

Mini-split systems are good investments as they typically last about 20 years. Throughout that time, the energy and maintenance savings add up, making it a worthwhile investment.

Benefits of a Mini-Split System

If you're thinking of installing a Raleigh mini-split system, but are not sure if it's right for you, consider these benefits:


Mini-split systems are more energy efficient than window-mounted air conditioner units. Less energy consumption results in lower energy bills.

Maintain Complete Temperature Control

Customize the temperature of each room to maximize your comfort level at home. If someone prefers to sleep in a cooler room and other family members like it warmer, you can easily accomplish this and make everyone happy.

Runs Quietly

Mini-split systems are known to run quietly so you don't have to be bothered by excess noise inside your home.

No Ductwork Required

You don't need expensive and intrusive ductwork to install a mini-split system. Copper line sets are used to run the refrigerant to the indoor units. You can also place your air handler where you want it. Multiple air handlers are available in several different mounting configurations including floor, ceiling, and wall-mounted options.

Easy to Install

Ductless mini-split systems are typically easier to install than other types of central forced air systems, making them more appealing to homeowners.

Adds Value to Your Home

Adding a mini-split system to your home also adds value. This type of technology is appealing to many home buyers because of the comfort it provides as well as the lifespan of the unit.

Mini-Split Maintenance Tips

While mini-split systems require less maintenance than other heating and cooling systems, you can't ignore them altogether. There are some things you should do regularly to maintain your system:

  • Clean filters at least every three months
  • Make sure the outdoor unit is clear of debris and leaves
  • Check for leaks in the refrigerant tubing and fix them as soon as possible

If you have any questions about properly maintaining your ductless mini-split system, American Comfort Services can answer them as well as review the installation process.

Is a Mini-Split System Right for Me?

Since a ductless mini-split system can be a large investment, many homeowners wonder if it's right for them.

As you consider installing a mini-split system, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you want to control the temperature in each room of your entire house?
  • Do you want to get rid of air conditioner window units?
  • Do you have areas of your home where ductwork is not feasible?
  • Are you looking for a more energy-efficient heating and cooling system?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to explore the benefits of a Raleigh mini split system installation.
