Mini-Split Installation Services in Winston-Salem

Your home should be where you’re most comfortable, and installing a mini-split heating and cooling system from QRC can make that a reality. Read on to learn about our mini-split installation services in Winston-Salem.

Our Mini Split AC Installation Process

We’ll guide you through the process of customizing a system for your home. A ductless mini-split installation takes about one day and involves mounting indoor and outdoor units, installing refrigerant and condensate lines, connecting conduit and electrical wiring, charging refrigerant lines, and then testing the system.

Based on our initial assessment of your home and any additional concerns you may have, we’ll install the correct mini-split AC configuration for your home. Once installation is complete, we’ll create a preventative maintenance plan.

Mini-Split Installation in Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Types of Mini Split Installations We Offer

A mini-split system has two major components — an outdoor condenser unit and one or more indoor air-handling units. There are two types of mini-split systems — single-zone and multi-zone. A single zone requires just one indoor and one outdoor unit.

A multi-zone installation connects one outside unit to multiple indoor units, each cooling or heating a zone. This type of installation is commonly used for basements, attics, or home additions.

Benefits of Mini-Split AC Systems for Your Winston-Salem Home

There are many benefits of installing mini-splits over other types of systems, such as central air, which has a single outdoor unit that forces air through a ductwork system.

A mini-split system allows you to have more control over the temperature of individual rooms, so each member of your family can stay comfortable even if they have different ideas on the ideal indoor temperature.

Mini-splits are more environmentally friendly and cost-effective since they don’t lose energy through ductwork. QRC can help you claim these benefits and more when you trust our technicians for mini-split installation.

Additionally, mini-split systems are less obtrusive. On your home’s outside, lines are small enough to blend into or complement your home’s aesthetic, while the inside work generally requires only a small amount of drilling. 

Choosing the Right Mini-Split System for Your Home

One of the biggest factors determining whether a ductless air conditioning installation is right for your home is your current HVAC setup. Do you have existing ductwork? If you do, it may be old or inefficient. A mini-split installation may be the most cost-effective and less disruptive in the long run. 

The professionals at QRC will help you determine the best location for both the indoor and outdoor units. These locations should provide efficient airflow and minimal obstruction. We inspect the areas where the system will be installed, consider existing insulation, and ensure the correct sizing and zoning. Factors impacting the number of zones your home needs are:

  • Renovations or additions: If you’re adding AC to an older home or need AC for home additions, a mini-split system is a convenient alternative to reworking your ductwork system.
  • Building size: Mini-splits match the power and performance needs of most homes, but central AC outperforms mini-splits in larger homes with high square footage and numerous rooms.
  • Comfort preferences: If you strongly prefer subtle and quiet air conditioning with flexible temperature adjustments, mini-splits may suit you best. 

What Factors Affect the Cost of Installation?

Depending on your system design, mini-split installation requirements are often more expensive than central AC systems. However, a mini-split AC installation can offer energy cost-savings long-term. Because mini-splits are ductless, they lose less energy than traditional systems, an estimated 30% less energy.

A ductless mini-split system has a better SEER rating — or seasonal energy efficiency ratio — than traditional systems. You want a SEER rating of at least 16. Systems with higher SEER ratings are more expensive.

Additional factors impacting cost are:

  • The number of units: Multi-zone systems generally cost more.
  • The system’s capacity:  Larger spaces often require larger capacity units, 
  • The complexity of installation: The layout of your home, accessibility of the installation areas, and the materials used all affect cost.
  • Upgrades and circuits: If the installation requires electrical upgrades or the installation of dedicated circuits for the indoor and outdoor units, this can add to the overall cost.
  • Accessories: The length and routing of refrigerant lines, along with the need for accessories such as line sets, line covers, and mounting brackets, can impact the total cost of installation.
  • Permits: A mini-split installation permit may need to be purchased.

FAQs

Does QRC offer financing?

QRC offers financing options, so you don’t have to break the bank for home comfort.

Can I install a mini-split system myself?

Does a mini-split system require special electrical work?

Most likely. Many systems need their own designated circuits and breakers.
