Ductless AC Replacement in San Antonio, TX
Quick Ductless HVAC System Installations
Ductless HVAC systems are perfect for your San Antonio home for many reasons. It’s in the name: No ducts are required in this unit! A ductless mini-split system consists of two separate units, one indoors and one outdoors.
The indoor unit pushes air from your home over cold evaporator coils, which absorb the heat in your air and deliver it to your outdoor unit. The outdoor unit is where all the heat pulled from your home is directed instead.

Ductless Mini-Split FAQs
Does a mini-split have to be installed on an outside wall?
No, it doesn’t. Another advantage of the ductless mini-split is that the indoor unit can be mounted on an interior wall since it doesn’t have to vent to the outside. These units also don’t weigh much, so most interior walls will support their weight.
Can I install a ductless mini-split system myself?
A handy homeowner could install a ductless mini-split system on their own, as the installation is less complex than installing central air, and only a little more complex than installing a window unit.
However, if any part of the installation from the refrigerant lines to the condensate drainage to the electrical wiring is incorrect, you could void your warranty, cause the system to underperform, and risk the unit breaking down. You also need a trained and licensed technician to charge it with the correct amount of refrigerant before use.
It’s better to call a pro from Damiani’s Comfort design or schedule an appointment online.
Do mini-splits require yearly maintenance?
The most important maintenance task for a ductless mini-split is washing and replacing the filter every 400 hours of use, which you can easily do yourself with a mild detergent. Some models will even notify you when it’s time. Your system should be checked inside and out annually according to the manufacturer’s guidelines to safely and efficiently run at its best.
What is the life span of a ductless mini-split?
Most ductless HVAC systems last 10 to 15 years, although, like all HVAC equipment, a mini-split will dramatically lose efficiency in its older years, and may require frequent, expensive repairs. Once your system is 10 years old, it’s time to start planning for an AC replacement. Damiani’s can help you with this decision.
