Frequently Asked Questions

A garage mini-split system is a type of ductless air conditioning and heating system specifically designed for use in garages. It consists of an indoor unit mounted on the wall or ceiling of the garage and an outdoor unit connected by refrigerant lines.

Mini-split systems offer efficient cooling and heating without the need for ductwork, making them ideal for garages. They provide personalized temperature control, improved air quality, and energy savings compared to traditional HVAC systems.

Yes, garage mini-split systems are capable of both cooling and heating. They use a heat pump technology to provide both heating and cooling functions, ensuring year-round comfort in your garage.

Yes, professional installation is highly recommended for optimal performance and safety. Our team of experienced technicians is trained to properly size, install, and maintain mini-split systems to ensure efficient operation and longevity.

The installation time can vary depending on the complexity of the job and the number of units being installed. However, most garage mini-split installations can be completed within a day.

Mini-split systems are known for their energy efficiency and are designed for point of use service (when and where you want it), which can lead to lower energy bills compared to extending traditional HVAC systems into new areas of your home.

Yes, all of our mini-split systems come with remote control capabilities, allowing you to adjust the temperature and settings from anywhere within range. Some models even offer smartphone compatibility for remote access.

Mini-split systems are remarkably reliable. That said, we still recommend regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance and the longevity of your mini-split system. We recommend scheduling annual maintenance checks to clean filters, check refrigerant levels, and inspect for any potential issues. This can be done at the same time as your central HVAC system.

Warranty coverage varies depending on the manufacturer and model of the mini-split system. Typically, warranties cover parts and labor for a specified period, ranging from one to ten years. Our team can provide details on warranty coverage for the specific system you choose.

While garage mini-split systems are designed specifically for use in garages, they can also be installed in other small spaces such as workshops, home offices, or bonus rooms. However, it's essential to consult with our team to ensure the system is suitable for your specific needs.

R32 and R410A are two different types of refrigerants commonly used in air conditioning systems, including garage mini-split systems. Here's a comparison between the two:

R32 is a newer refrigerant known for its lower global warming potential (GWP) compared to R410A.
It is more environmentally friendly and has a GWP roughly one-third that of R410A.
R32 is also more energy efficient, allowing for reduced energy consumption and lower operating costs.
However, R32 is mildly flammable, requiring special handling and safety precautions during installation and maintenance.

R410A is a widely used refrigerant in air conditioning systems, including many garage mini-split systems.
It has a higher GWP compared to R32, contributing more to greenhouse gas emissions and environmental impact.
While R410A is non-flammable, it is considered less environmentally friendly than R32.
R410A systems are still prevalent in the market, but there is a gradual shift towards more eco-friendly alternatives like R32.
When choosing between R32 and R410A for your garage mini-split system, factors such as environmental impact, energy efficiency, safety, and regulatory compliance should be considered.

Our team can provide guidance on selecting the refrigerant that best suits your needs and preferences.
