Expert Tips for Installing a Mini-Split in Your Home

For an optimal year-round home comfort solution, look no further than a ductless mini-split system. An increasingly popular choice among homeowners due to its numerous advantages, this system requires careful consideration of its placement to ensure optimal performance. Our team of mini-split installation experts at H & H Heating & Air Conditioning is here to guide you through the key factors to keep in mind.

Install the Unit on an Exterior Wall

To ensure a high-quality installation of your indoor unit, it is crucial to place it on an exterior wall. Additionally, maintain a minimum of two inches of clear space above each indoor unit. This arrangement facilitates proper ventilation and guarantees a comfortable living environment throughout your home.

Install Additional Units in Uncomfortable Rooms

Carefully consider the number of indoor units your home requires. If certain rooms pose challenges for regular heating and cooling systems, it might be prudent to install additional indoor units in those areas. To determine the optimal amount of conditioned air necessary to maintain a comfortable environment, seek advice from an experienced AC technician who can expertly troubleshoot any concerns you may have.

Ensure the Outdoor Unit is Securely Mounted

To guarantee the unit’s stability and optimal functionality, ensure you use sturdy stand-off mounting brackets when placing it on an exterior wall. Leave approximately 5 inches of space between the unit and the wall and ensure there is around 20 inches of clearance above it. 

Zoning  Ductless Mini-Split for Home

Ductless mini-split systems offer significant advantages as they eliminate the need for existing ductwork. Why spend money heating or cooling rooms that are unoccupied? Zoning allows you the freedom to install the indoor fan coil virtually anywhere in your house.  Moreover, the installation process is notably faster compared to regular HVAC systems, and you have the flexibility to install one or multiple indoor fan coils according to your specific needs and preferences.


In contrast, traditional central air conditioners suffer from approximately 30 percent conditioned air loss due to leaks and cracks in the ducts. This compels the system to work harder to compensate for the energy loss, resulting in increased electricity consumption and higher energy bills. Opting for a ductless mini-split system completely circumvents this issue, providing efficient cooling and heating without such energy losses.
