Mini Splits Installation and Repair

Mini Splits Installation and Repair

Would you like greater control when it comes to customizing the temperature of your home?
Perhaps you’d like one room warm and the other cool, for example.

With a conventional central air conditioning system, this is difficult to achieve.

That’s why some people choose to invest in mini splits instead.

What are mini splits?

Mini splits is the name given to a system that allows you to heat or cool individual rooms. This system is ductless, and it allows you to control different zones in your home and heat them differently.

If one person in your home loves their bedroom warm but another prefers theirs to be cool, this is the ideal solution! Each room can have its own temperature, even if they’re right next to each other.

Ductless systems are becoming popular because of this and because they operate more efficiently. Systems that rely on ductwork often lose energy due to cracks, making mini splits anything between 20-60% more efficient than central air conditioning!

Are you considering installing ductwork in your home? It’s possible that a mini splits system would be better for you. Contact Beehive Heating and Air if you’d like to discuss your options in detail.

How do mini splits systems work?

A mini split system consists of two components: there’s an outdoor compressor and condenser unit and an indoor evaporator unit.
Installing these is very easy, especially compared to the complexity of installing ductwork around a house.
All that’s required is a hole through the wall to connect both units using power cables, copper tubing, and a drain line.
New home builds might choose mini splits over central air conditioning systems, but they can also be retrofitted to houses with non-ducted heating.

Advantages of mini splits systems

Increased efficiency

A mini split system consists of two components: there’s an outdoor compressor and condenser unit and an indoor evaporator unit. Installing these is very easy, especially compared to the complexity of installing ductwork around a house. All that’s required is a hole through the wall to connect both units using power cables, copper tubing, and a drain line. New home builds might choose mini splits over central air conditioning systems, but they can also be retrofitted to houses with non-ducted heating.

Easy installation

Mini splits systems are small, and installing them is not an especially disruptive process. All that’s required is a small hole to connect the internal and external units. The connecting conduit can come in a range of lengths, so you can position your unit in an inconspicuous location. Indoor units can be flexibly mounted or suspended.

Long term savings

Because each zone only needs to be conditioned when you’re in it, you can save energy (and money) by reducing the amount of rooms that you heat or cool. Although mini splits system installation represents an investment, it’s one that pays itself off through savings over time!

Temperature control

With a mini splits system, each zone has its own thermostat. This is ideal if people in your home have different temperature preferences. It ensures the comfort of everyone in your house, and it’s also a great way to save money by not heating or cooling unoccupied rooms!

Common Mini Splits Repairs and What to Do

Mini splits systems have many advantages, but like any other system, they occasionally experience issues. Here are some of the most common concerns that we’re contacted about here at Beehive Heating and Air.

1. A dripping mini split or one that isn’t draining
Read More
This issue suggests there is a problem with either the condensate drain or the drain line. Perhaps the drain line is clogged, causing water to back up. In this instance, call the Beehive team to unblock it!
2. The mini split is making noise
Read More
Usually, you won’t hear much noise from your mini split system. If you hear a popping sound, it may be the plastic expanding or contracting in accordance with the temperature. A swooshing or gurgling noise might indicate that your system is in defrost mode. If this keeps occurring, it may be a sign that something is wrong. A Beehive Heating and Air technician will be able to diagnose and resolve the issue.
3. The mini split isn’t blowing hot air
Read More
This could be the result of a frozen coil issue, caused by either a lack of refrigerant, a bad circuit board, or broken sensors. To find out which, all you have to do is call our team of experienced HVAC specialists.
4. The mini split isn’t cooling or blowing cold air
Read More
When this issue occurs, it’s often down to a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant is what moves heat and keeps your spaces cool. You need a professional to fix this problem, so contact Beehive Heating and Air! Remember, we’re available 24 hours a day.
5. The mini split isn’t dehumidifying
Read More
One of the things a mini split has in common with aircon is that it dehumidifies throughout the hotter months. If there’s mold in the condensate drain, it may not be able to.

If your system is too large for your space, it may also fail to dehumidify. That’s why it’s important to consult HVAC experts before you invest in your mini split system.
6. The mini split smells
Read More
Consider a smell, a cry for attention: something is wrong with your system! A musty smell indicates a mold issue. Your condensate drain may need to be cleaned.

However, a sweet or vinegar-like smell suggests a refrigerant leak. This issue might occur in conjunction with a lack of cold air. A fishy smell is a sign of an electrical problem. Whatever the smell is, it’s worthy of being checked out by an HVAC professional!
7. The mini split will not turn on
Read More
Often, customers will contact us worried because their mini split won’t turn on. Usually, the issue is that the batteries are dead! If you’ve checked and changed the batteries but this issue persists, then you should give our team a call. We’ll attend the scene and see what’s wrong.

FAQ: Mini Splits Installation and Repair

Can I install a mini splits system myself?

Although mini splits system installation is definitely easier than installing ductwork, it’s still harder than installing a window unit. Your mini splits system will come with an installation manual.

However, there are clear advantages to having professionals handle this for you. Incorrect installation will only lead to unnecessary repairs at a later stage.

That’s why we’d always recommend that customers like you contact us when it’s time to install a mini splits system. We’d even be happy to help you choose the best system for your circumstances!

What is the lifespan of a mini splits system?

Most mini splits systems will last between 10 and 15 years. You may find that the efficiency of your system reduces in its later years, though. If you’re experiencing issues with your system and it’s over 10 years old, it may make more sense to replace it than repair it. Regular maintenance can prevent these issues from occurring prematurely.

How do I choose the right mini splits system?

The first thing you’ll need to establish is the number and size of the rooms that will benefit from the heating and cooling power of the mini splits system. Heating and cooling capabilities vary from system to system. Beyond room size, you should also consider sunlight, average occupancy, and the age of your home when deciding the type of mini splits system to buy.

You also need to establish how many zones the unit will be used in. A single zone system has two units: one indoor and one outdoor. It’s designed for one room only. Multi-zone systems use the same outdoor unit with multiple indoor units to cool and heat more than one room.

Finally, you can choose from different styles so your internal units coordinate with your interior design. You might choose a wall mounted unit or a ceiling cassette style, for example.

Struggling to decide the right mini splits system for you? Don’t worry! All you have to do is call our experienced and knowledgeable technicians. We can guide you through the process and install your units for you.

How do I troubleshoot mini splits issues?

You can call Beehive Heating and Air at any time if you suspect a mini splits system problem. However, you may wish to run through this troubleshooting process first.

● Check your disconnect switch to ensure that fuses haven’t blown and your circuit breakers are on as normal.
● Check that air filters are clean, allowing sufficient airflow.
● Check thermostat settings in case they have been wrongly set.
● Check that the thermostat batteries aren’t dead.

If your issue continues once you have gone through this process, you should definitely call an HVAC professional to establish the cause of the problem.
