Ductless and Mini-Split Systems
Mini-Split AC systems can be a lifesaver for homeowners who have an existing area in the house that just never seems to get to proper temperature and humidity, but are not yet ready to purchase and install an entire new system. They also are a great solution when adding square footage to a home like when enclosing a porch or construction of an addition. At Arnold's AC, we'll give you an honest, no-pressure assessment of your current AC system and how a ductless AC or mini-split can supplement your main unit for an existing area of your home or a planned addition in need of climate control.
Ductless and Mini Split Considerations
- INSTALLATION The recommended placement is at least seven feet above the ground, but as close to the ceiling as allowed. This will vary depending on each brand, however, and at Arnold's AC, we can help you with your selection.
- SIZE Ductless and Mini Split AC systems generally run from about 6,000 to 10,000 BTUs and can condition the air in rooms and areas from 150 square feet to more than 450 square feet in size.
- VOLTAGE Smaller-powered mini splits use a standard 110 to 120 volts, which most homes can accommodate. Larger units require higher 220-240 volts depending on the brand and model.
Arnold's can coat units with an anti-corrosion coat to help units last even longer. Please inquire about this valuable service.

Top 3 Reasons to Choose Arnold's
Experience matters! At Arnold's AC, we have lived, worked and played in South Florida for most of our adult lives. We know firsthand what it's like from both the customer's perspective and the contractor's perspective. That's why we're passionate about what we do and how we do it. Our team provides only the highest quality repairs using OEM replacement parts, honest maintenance and recommendations, and top brand names and installations.
Considering a trusted handyman to repair your AC or install a new system in order to save a few dollars? Don't do it! Most handymen don't have the knowledge, experience or even the tools to do adequate HVAC work, let alone are licensed, bonded and fully insured. The likelihood that your short-term savings will end up costing more over the long haul is high, and if your home or system is damaged by a nonprofessional, you have little financial recourse.
At Arnold's AC, early on we got hooked on the smiles and thank yous that always seem to immediately follow a repair or new system installation. Even an hour or two without AC here in South Florida can be miserable, and when a customer's system kicks in again, it makes us feel like a hero. We get similar satisfaction when a customer after decades calls us again for a new system. It's this kind of customer satisfaction that feeds our passion to be the best at what we do.
