How Many Amps Are Required for a Ductless Mini Split System

There are many factors that go into the installation of an air conditioning system, and a ductless mini-split system is no exception! If you’re considering adding this as a cooling–and heating–option, then this blog post is for you!

One of the factors included in ductless mini split installation is how much amp is required for it. This is the unit used for measuring electricity, or how fast electric current flows. The higher the voltage, the lower amps are needed, but how many amps are actually required for a ductless system?

This will actually vary, based on how many British thermal units, BTUs, the system uses–usually 15-45 amps per mini-split is needed.

Is all of this making your head spin? We get it! And we get amps, voltage, watts, and the like. We’re expertly trained and have the experience necessary to make sure that your home is matched with the right air conditioner for your specific comfort needs, and if that happens to be a ductless system, that it has the right amount of amps.

With that all said, you’re probably wondering if this truly is the right system for your needs. Read on as we uncover some benefits of such an installation!

One of the common misconceptions around air conditioners is that ice is a regular part of the cooling process. It makes sense, right? Air conditioners chill the air, so if it’s cold enough, ice will form, right?

It’s easy to imagine why homeowners who are unfamiliar with how an air conditioner works may think this, so we don’t blame people for believing this myth!

However, this belief could do your air conditioner harm. Ice on the air conditioner is actually a pretty serious problem and can lead to a number of other problems for the air conditioner.

When it comes to comprehensive comfort in the average Atlanta home, most residents know that it takes a centralized air conditioning system to get the job done. That is, they know they can’t rely on portable or window AC units to keep their homes cool enough at an affordable price. These systems are noisy, they cost a lot to run, and you have to completely maintain them on your own if you want them to last for several years.

When you want to stay truly comfortable, and avoid paying an arm and a leg for that comfort, then you want to invest in a centralized, whole-home air conditioner.

Note: we didn’t say central air conditioner. This is one type of ducted AC system, and we’ll explain more about that below. Read on as we uncover the different types of ducted and ductless air conditioners on the market, the pros and cons of each, and what may be best for your specific home.
