Do Mini Splits Come Pre-Charged?

You’re getting a new ductless mini split system installed in your home soon. You can’t wait for more concentrated heating and cooling without the high energy bill costs.

You’d love to begin using your mini split as soon as it’s all set up and wired. Does a mini split come pre-charged?

Yes, indeed, most mini splits on the market these days arrive at your doorstep pre-charged.

By the way, if you don’t know what we’re referring to when we say a mini split is (or isn’t) pre-charged, this is a type of more expedient mini split setup.

You see, when installing units like a ductless mini split, a technician and their team have to attach the necessary refrigerant lines. Then they have to charge the system to ensure optimal performance once you turn the mini split on.

Pre-charging skips all that. All the parts that need to plug in connect seamlessly, the mini split has the right amount of refrigerant, and everything is pretty much ready to go, as they say, right out of the box.

All the technician has to do is attach the lines to the condenser, tighten up the connections, open up the valves, and voila, your mini split is good to go.

Technicians love pre-charged mini split kits because they make their jobs a lot easier. The team can save time on the job and quickly move on to installing a mini split system elsewhere or servicing another customer’s mini split.

Customers love pre-charged mini split kits as well because they don’t have to spend as much on the labor bill for their new mini split. There’s also no delay so they can begin enjoying heating and cooling the same day the system is installed, even within the same hour!

Many of the top mini split manufacturers offer pre-charged systems, including MrCool, Daikin, Fujitsu, and Bosch.

What if you’re not sure if your mini split is pre-charged and the technicians have already packed up and left for the day?

Well, you could always give your friendly mini split technician a call and ask. You can also check your owner’s manual or review the project details, as whether your mini split is pre-charged will usually be mentioned in the paperwork.

Even if your ductless mini split isn’t pre-charged, that’s not necessarily the worst thing ever. It’s certainly not as convenient as it could be, but your technician and their team can always fill the lines with refrigerant so your mini split is ready to use.

Pre-charged or not, mini splits are an excellent solution for households and businesses alike that want more environmentally-friendly heating and cooling. The purposeful flow of air that mini splits release ensures that only the parts of a building that need cooling and heating receive them.

The results? Greater savings for you on your utility bills. Over the years, you can save thousands of dollars on energy bills by making the switch. Call us at PowerSave AC today to discuss your mini split options!
