Many homes in San Diego rely on central air conditioners for cooling during the summer, which require ductwork to transport the air, plus separate heating systems. Others have heat pumps, which can provide both heating and cooling, but they still require ducts, which often leak, wasting 15 to 30 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling.
By eliminating the air ducts, a ductless cooling system, or mini split, is far more efficient than a standard air conditioner. In addition, many ductless systems are based on heat pump technology, allowing them to provide energy-efficient, ductless heating throughout the winter, without the added cost of a separate heating system.
At Thompson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer several ductless air conditioner and heat pump services, including new installations, system replacements, repairs and routine maintenance. Our technicians are NATE-certified, and have extensive experience with ductless mini split systems, as well as traditional split air conditioner systems, packaged AC systems, heat pumps and more.

Ductless Mini Split Installation in the San Diego Area
Like traditional split air conditioner or heat pump, ductless systems feature an outdoor unit with a condenser coil and compressor. This is connected to the indoor portion through refrigerant lines and electrical cables.
With a ductless system, however, instead of a centralized evaporator coil and ducts, the indoor portion of a mini split system features an individual air handler in each room or zone. The indoor unit combines an evaporator coil, air filter and fan in a small wall or ceiling-mounted package, and it is connected to the outdoor unit through a small three-inch opening in the wall for the refrigerant and electrical lines. This arrangement allows for quick installations, with very little remodeling required.
Smaller ductless heating or ductless cooling systems are designed for only one room, with a single air handler, while larger systems allow for multiple air handlers and independent controls for each zone.
At Thompson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning we can help you find the right ductless air conditioner or ductless heating system for your needs and your budget. We will make sure that your system offers the features you desire, such as multiple zones, variable-speed air handlers or wireless remote controls. Our team will size the system correctly for your home and will install it quickly and efficiently, minimizing disruptions to your schedule. We also offer replacement services for existing ductless heating and cooling systems.
