DUCTLESS AC SERVICES
Ductless air conditioning, or mini-split air conditioner, is an efficient and affordable two-in-one option for spaces where traditional heating and cooling systems that rely on ductwork are not possible or too costly to install. Because they do not rely on ductwork, they are considered easier to maintain than regular HVAC systems. Even so, regular ductless AC maintenance is essential to keeping your unit in good shape and free of any breakdown cause.
Having said that, you can still have your ductless AC break down and, especially in Florida, it’s never convenient. If you notice your AC leaking, making a lot of noise, or not cooling at all, you might be in need of professional mini split repair services or even replacement in more extreme cases.
- Ductless AC Repair
Our AC technicians are experienced in inspecting and repairing all types of ductless AC, including mini-splits. By performing a thorough analysis, our HVAC technicians can accurately identify the issue with your mini-split and educate you on the repair options available, so you can make a decision that you’re comfortable with. In addition, we also provide emergency ductless AC repairs in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Largo.
- Ductless AC Replacement & Installation
If mini-split repair is not possible and it’s simply time to get ductless AC replacement, or if you want to upgrade to a new, more energy-efficient model, our team can assess your space, needs, and budget, and provide you with appropriate ductless AC installation options. In many cases, even considering the initial ductless AC installation cost, getting a new, more energy-efficient AC unit can go a long way to help you save on energy costs.
There are many uses and benefits of a ductless AC system, namely:
- Installation into spaces where traditional ductwork is not available
- Lower energy costs
- Temperature control in only the space needed
- Easy installation
- Simple maintenance

- Lower energy costs
- Fewer breakdowns and repairs
- Cleaner air
Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
