Is It Possible to Install Ductless Heating Myself?

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

There’s a law of the Internet: “If it’s something you want to do yourself, the Internet will tell you how to do it.” But this law should be changed to, “If it’s something you want to do yourself, the Internet will try to tell you how to do it.”

No matter how many “How To” videos you watch on certain subjects, you still won’t be able to handle them yourself unless you have proper training. “How to varnish your own table” video—that might work. “How to repair a low-earth orbit satellite” video—probably not.

A ductless heating and cooling system isn’t as complex as satellites, but it still falls into the category of “things the Internet can’t really teach you to do.” It’s true that putting in ductless mini splits is a simpler installation job than putting in a central heating and cooling system. But it still requires professionals for a number of reasons.

Proper sizing

Any new heating and cooling system for a house must be matched to the homes specific comfort requirements. A system that’s oversized will waste power as it cycles on and off rapidly; a system that’s undersized won’t deliver the right heating and cooling. With a ductless system comes the specific concern about how many mini splits to use indoors, and how many and what power of outdoor unit to use. This takes experienced professionals to determine accurately.

Air handler mounting

The small indoor air handlers can’t just be mounted up on a few nails like a framed picture. They must have special mounting frames secured first so they won’t rip off the walls. A hole must be bored through the wall behind each one to allow for the condensate, refrigerant, and power line to pass through. This work is something to leave to professionals—otherwise too much can go wrong.

This is only the start of the reasons to leave ductless heating and cooling installation to the experts. But experts are easy to find in Corpus Christi, TX: simply contact Justice Air Conditioning & Heating.
