Creating affordable housing in California is the goal of many of our communities, and accessory dwelling units (ADUs), aka mother-in-law cottages, are a great way to maximize housing options. ADUs can be connected to your home as a finished basement or an apartment above your garage, but they can also be a completely separate living space. If that’s the case, installing a new HVAC system can be costly to stay comfortable in California’s hot summers.
Don’t go through the hassle and cost of installing ductwork that will need regular maintenance when our expert ductless systems in Santa Clarita provide these benefits:
- Zero emissions
- Easy zoning
- Quiet operation
- Flexible installation
ADUs are required to be smaller than your primary residence. However, they can still include multiple rooms. Ductless mini-splits are a great way to zone a space with only a few units that connect easily to the outside condenser. Not only is this option typically more energy-efficient because of the lack of ductwork and zoning capabilities, but it also operates quietly, so you’re not disturbed by frequent cycling.
Mini-splits also provide flexible installation as they can be placed in any orientation or area where a three-inch hole can be cut to connect it to the condenser. This helps you avoid hurting the aesthetic of your space while benefiting from zero emissions and energy efficiency.
No matter which HVAC system you choose, it still needs annual maintenance and occasional repairs to stay 100%. Common mini-split issues include poor drainage, often caused by a blockage in the condensate drain that can even cause a leak. This can be prevented with annual cleanings and tune-ups so debris doesn’t build up and cause a clog. If your unit stops working, look for ice on the evaporator coils or leaking refrigerant. This can cause your system to blow hot air instead of cool or vice versa.
Preventative maintenance is the best way to prevent these breakdowns from occurring. Replace filters as the manufacturer recommends or more often if you smoke or have pets. Keep debris, plants, and pests away from your condenser to prevent blockages or chewed wiring that can create a short. Properly maintaining your system with these actions and our annual tune-ups helps you have the reliable comfort you deserve.
