Learn how to install a ductless mini-split air conditioner in just nine minutes. A Blueridge Ductless Mini-Split is one of the most affordable ways to heat and cool your home. They’re perfect for additions, garages, or rooms where ductwork isn’t available. Mini-splits are energy efficient, quiet, and easy to install. There are two units to install. First, the indoor air handler and then the outdoor condenser. The two components are connected by copper tubing, called a line set. You can complete most of the work by yourself, however, the last 10% of the work should be completed by a trained professional.

When you purchase a Blueridge Mini-Split at Alpine Home Air Products you will receive complete installation instructions as well as an installation DVD with select mini-splits.
