The mini split systems are easy to install and are perfect for DIY enthusiasts. You'll save money by not hiring a contractor and you'll be able to complete the installation on your own schedule. Ductless mini split systems are easier to install than other air conditioning systems. DIY mini split installation requires a condensing unit outside the house, an air handler inside the house, refrigerant lines to connect the units, and electrical cable to power the units.
Most ductless mini split systems are installed by a professional because the coolant line has to be cut off and then charged. It is possible to install the air handling unit and condenser on your own and hire a professional to complete the configuration of the refrigerant line. One thing to consider when deciding whether DIY installation will save you money or not is labor. Labor may vary by region, but it's not a bad idea to call and get an estimate of installation costs before embarking on the project.
