Ductless Mini-Split Installation & Replacement in Alexandria, VA

Ductless HVAC systems, also called ductless mini-splits and zoned HVAC, are an energy-efficient air conditioning alternative for your Alexandria home or small office. Ductless systems rely on an outdoor compressor, condenser, and an indoor air-handling unit. Mini-splits are often the best solution for home additions and renovations when the property doesn’t already have existing ductwork, as is the case with many Alexandria homes. Ductless mini-splits are also good options because of their small size, easy installation, and ability to efficiently cool individual rooms and small spaces at a lower comparative cost to ductwork.

If you need ductless AC installation or replacement in Alexandria, VA, contact Caffi Services today to learn more about this incredible, flexible technology.

Why Professional Ductless Mini-Split Installation and Replacement is an Ideal Cooling Solution for Many Alexandria Residents

Alexandria, VA, is a historical region of the country, boasting many beautiful older homes. And while these homes stand proudly with character, they weren’t exactly built with our modern HVAC duct schematics in mind. Retrofitting these homes with central air and other duct options can be too expensive or even hazardous to the home’s structural integrity.

Considering this, the benefits of professional ductless mini split installation and replacement are undeniable:

  • Easy, flexible installation. There’s no need to tear out the ceiling to install ducts. The connection between the indoor and outdoor units necessary to install a working mini-split can be accomplished with a conduit inserted in a narrow three-inch hole through a chosen wall. What’s more, mini-split manufacturers understand their products are usually workarounds to ductwork, and as such, they supply customers with many varied conduit lengths. In fact, the components of a ductless mini-split are so flexible, you can actually place your outdoor unit up to 50 feet away from the indoor unit.
  • Optimal energy (and cash) efficiency. Whether it’s the sun’s rays or your average speed on the last leg of a mile run, one thing is always true: energy loses some of its oomph when it travels long distances. It’s the same with air conditioning. Energy losses that occur as the cool air travels through traditional ductwork accounts for over 30% of energy consumption during use. Because ductless HVAC systems cut out the middleman, that’s energy saved, and a cooler home for cheaper.
  • Safer, nicer-looking, and quieter homes. We know – that seems too good to be true! But it’s not. Because only small holes are needed to install ductless mini splits, there’s no risk of burglars trying to badly reenact bad action movies where unwelcome guests are scuffling through the air ducts. Furthermore, ductless mini splits are smaller and more flexible than traditional AC systems, freeing up more interior design options for your home or office space. Current brands of mini-split cooling units have gotten a lot quieter, too, and Caffi Services has an incredible range of options for you to consider during an installation or replacement.
