If you’re considering a minisplit system, please read our recommendations below. We have spent over 30 years in the HVAC industry and seen them all. This is the same advice we would give to a family member.
Based on our years of experience installing Minisplit units, here is our brand ranking from best- to worst-performing:
Minisplit installation is complicated as these systems are much more difficult to install exactly right compared to other HVAC products; if they’re not installed correctly, the units will fail prematurely. Minisplit units are supposed to last decades & priced as such. It takes over 30 different steps for correct installation of a single mini-split unit, so extreme attention to detail is necessary to ensure the minisplit installation is done correctly. Additionally, mini split installation cost can be anywhere between $6,000 to $30,000 depending on your home’s needs. You don’t want headaches & issues to pop down the line for not doing it right the first time. The factors below are part of your minisplit installation process:
– Correct Sizing: This is imperative for accurate installation of a minisplit. If a unit is to big or small for the space, short cycling can happen. A good HVAC technician will have extensive knowledge of how minisplits function to size one correctly .
– Unit Type: The most common unit types are wall or floor units that can be installed almost anywhere. In new construction, cassettes and ceiling units are most common, but highly unlikely to fit between an existing structure’s joists, which require 15 to 16 inches of full clearance in between each joist.
– Unit Efficiency: Minisplits are commonly high-efficiency cooling units (High SEER rating) and the typical differentiator between models & product ranges is their heating efficacy. There are three major types of minisplit systems: cooling only; heat pump (heating and cooling capacity); and cold climate heat pumps that can generate heat at any temperature and typically have a high-efficiency rating.
