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!
