Ductless Mini Split Installation Services in the Northern Virginia Area

Get efficient cooling and heating for your home or outbuilding.

Heat Pumps - Bridge Shot

More and more homeowners and businesses are choosing ductless mini-split systems to cool and heat their homes, rooms, and outbuildings. One of the advantages is the significant cost savings when using a ductless system during the many hot and humid days we get here in Northern Virginia.

Not only are these systems energy efficient, but they’re also durable, versatile, and relatively easy to install. This is especially the case with a building without existing ductwork. You may have heard about these ductless systems and want to see if they could work for your current home comfort situation.

Meticulous Planning is How IAQ Medics Prepares for Installation

If you’re thinking about a room that’s difficult to keep comfortable year-round because of exposure or lack of exposure to the sun, then you might want to look into a new ductless system. There are a number of ways that a ductless system can solve a home comfort problem. When you give us a call to come out to your location, we’ll inspect the interior and exterior of your home or structure to see if a ductless mini-split system will give you the cooling and heating you need. The layout of your home, the space requirements, and the convenience of the electrical connection are all part of our initial assessment. Because we’ve performed a number of installations, we can make some recommendations to enhance the efficiency and aesthetics of the new units.

Expert Ductless Mini-Split Installation

Based on our initial assessment of your proposed location, we will formulate a detailed plan for our trained technicians to have on installation day. This includes information that will help them to understand what tools and equipment they'll need to bring to execute the job in accordance with the HVAC industry’s best practices. Our installation plan includes the placement of both the indoor and outdoor units. The outdoor unit in particular will need brackets and hardware for its correct placement. Typically, our ductless system installations can be completed within a day or a day and a half, depending on the project's scale and special circumstances.

Ductless - Installing

Getting the Electrical and Refrigerant Set Up Done

In contrast to a central AC ducted system, installing a ductless system is relatively straightforward. We'll connect the indoor and outdoor units using refrigerant and electrical lines that are tightly sealed and hidden by a line set cover. Anytime we do an installation, we want your system to work well and look clean. The last part of our job is to set up the electrical power.  Our ductless mini-split installation team will be familiar with the electrical requirements of your units and connect them all in accordance with our high standards for efficiency and safety.  

Before We Leave We Do a Final Inspection and Testing

When everything is connected and we power on your system, we begin our rigorous testing to make sure that everything is running smoothly. We’ll check the unit’s ability to both heat and cool at expected levels. We’ll inspect all the lines for any signs of refrigerant or power supply issues. We take pride in our work and doing a final check ensures we did the job right and you are going to get the results you want. 

Clean up and New Ductless Owner Instructions

Now that you’re the proud owner of a ductless mini-split system, all that’s left is to provide instructions on its use and how to maximize its functionality. The controls on ductless mini-splits are user-friendly and versatile. No matter what time of the year, there is a function for giving you the warmth or cool air you need. We'll let you know about any simple maintenance tasks to be done such as filter changes, cleaning the unit, and troubleshooting minor issues that might arise. Additionally, we suggest that you enroll in our convenient ductless maintenance plan. We have found that regular visits by our technicians will help keep your ductless mini-split unit running efficiently and increase its lifespan by years.
