I felt like I was on a whole new level when I installed a ductless mini split in my home. It was just so easy to do and also something that I never thought I’d be able to do. I can’t even remember who told me about DIY ductless mini splits, but I watched the videos on YouTube learning how to install such HVAC systems. I loved the fact that you didn’t need to hire an HVAC professional for a costly installation. The downside is the fact that the warranty becomes void, but the good news is that the HVAC should outlast the warranty anyway! That is so long as you keep up with your regular maintenance and care. Now it is a good idea to call the professionals for certain types of maintenance that are difficult, like a thorough cleaning of the condenser unit. Of course, if you keep up with the regular maintenance and cleaning, dirt and debris will not clog up the fin coils and cause the condenser to malfunction. That’s actually the most important thing, keeping everything clean and running smoothly. When my sister learned that I installed the HVAC, she almost screamed. Not because she thought I did a horrible job, but because she wanted a new HVAC at her house and she was dreading the cost of a professional installation. I warned her about the warranty being void with a non-professional installation, but she said she didn’t care. She said after seeing my installation work, she had faith that I would do a great job. And so, we went HVAC shopping for her.
