Leslie Heating & Cooling has all the information you need to decide whether ductless mini–splits are the right choice for your home.

What Are Ductless Mini–Split Air Conditioners?
Ductless mini–splits, as the name suggests, do not require the bulky ductwork that forced air systems do to disperse cooled air. Like central systems, ductless mini–splits have two main components. There is an outdoor unit containing the noisy components of the system, namely the compressor and condenser. Wall mounted blower units disperse the cooled air indoors, and are virtually silent.
We service all makes and models of ductless mini–split from top manufacturers, including the following:
Installing Ductless Mini–Split Air Conditioners in Naperville, IL
The installation of a ductless mini–split system is far less obtrusive than a forced air system. No expensive ductwork is required. A simple conduit containing refrigerant tubes and an electrical line connect the indoor and outdoor components. When you have Leslie Heating & Cooling install your ductless system, we make sure that everything is done correctly, performing the task quickly but correctly.
We will determine the best place for your condenser unit, drill a three inch hole in your wall that will be sealed later, and feed the conduit through. Depending on your home’s layout, we will install wall mounted blower units, which can sometimes sit flush with walls, or freestanding units can be used. The whole process is quick and cost–effective.
Repairing Ductless Mini–Split Air Conditioners
In addition to installing your ductless mini–split system, our technicians are available 24/7, 365 days a year for any repairs your system may need. It’s important that you call for service as soon as you notice a problem with your system. Small issues can cause serious damage to your system if given the time. Refrigerant is never used up, for example, so if you need it recharged there is likely a leak in your system somewhere. Don’t allow for unnecessary wear and tear on your air conditioner. Let Leslie Heating & Cooling get it working right today.
Benefits of Ductless Mini–Split Air Conditioners
Ductless mini–splits offer a number of benefits over other home cooling systems. In addition to a cheaper, less obtrusive installation process than forced air systems ductless mini–splits are also more efficient. A large amount of cooling energy is lost through the ductwork in other systems, due to lack of or poor insulation, holes, gaps and other integrity issues. With only refrigerant lines connecting the components and refrigerant being fed directly to the indoor blower, ductless mini–splits cannot lose energy in this way.
This type of system also makes it very easy to create cooling zones in your residence through the use of different blowers. Most systems can accommodate up to four blowers on a single condenser unit. Each blower, mounted in separate rooms, can be controlled individually, allowing you to cool only those rooms you want to the exact temperature desired. This allows for even higher energy efficiency.
