We specialize in air conditioning installation on Oahu, specifically, installing mini-split ductless AC systems/units that are quiet, energy-efficient and stylish, and we do it in a timely way, for a reasonable price. No matter whether you have an apartment, home, office, or commercial space, we can recommend the perfect mini-split ductless solution to create and maintain a comfortable temperature in each specific room or living space.
With mini-split ductless air conditioning units, you can customize the temperature for each room. Each unit comes with its own remote, so you can have a different temperature in each room/area that has an air conditioning unit.
You can choose from wall-mounted units, or ceiling-mounted cassettes (where attic space is available). Because mini-split ductless systems take the refrigerant straight to the room you are cooling, there is no loss of energy from ductwork (as in central AC), saving you money and giving you a much more efficient system..
With a multi-zone unit, you can run up to 5 indoor units, whether cassettes or wall mounted units. This means that where space is limited outside, especially in a townhouse, condo, or apartment, you only need one condensing unit outside to handle up 5 units inside.
We personally recommend, if space is available, going with single-zone units, i.e., one outside condensing unit for one inside blower unit. The reason being, single-zone units are more reliable, more efficient, totally independent from other units, and usually cheaper than multi-zone units. With a multi-zone unit, if a person in one room decides to turn the heat on, it can interrupt the cooling in another room. In addition, if one multi-port has a maintenance issue, you can lose all the units connected to that port.
There are several excellent brands of mini-spit ductless AC units available, and we can install whichever brand you choose. For example, Daikin, Fujitsu, LG, Mitsubishi, and Panasonic are all top quality, energy-efficient, and stylish brands that are available here on the island. We are happy to explain the details of any brand, as well as any special features you may be interested in.
Mini-split systems are not only energy-efficient and quiet, they are also easy to clean, as they come with removable filters. Simply lift the cover on the front, remove the filters, wash gently with soap and water, and replace. Depending on usage, this can be done every few months or so. Wiping the top of the unit will keep it dust free, and a quick wipe on the inside of the lid and on the blades will prevent any buildup of dust, which can lead to mold. Actually, whenever you turn your AC off, if you first turn it to FAN mode for an hour or two, any condensation build up which may occur from turning it off will dissipate, preventing the formation of mold. We have found this simple step will help to keep your unit significantly cleaner. The best solution to cleaning, of course, is to get us to professionally clean your machine every 4-6 months. We can get right inside and get the inner blade cleaned, as well as the other parts. This will keep air flow and cooling power at their peak.
Depending on the number of units, we generally take anywhere from half a day up to 2 or 3 days to complete an install. We are also experienced with installing ACs in condos and apartments, so we can often save you time getting HOA approval. We can also help with installs for new construction. We are experienced working with plans and architects, so the refrigerant lines are run inside the walls before they are buttoned up, for a clean and aesthetically pleasing finished look.
Some people ask us, why should we use a mini-split system, why not just go with window units? The reason is simple: mini-split systems have a much higher energy-efficiency, are considerably quieter, and are more aesthetically pleasing than window units
Although window units are cheaper in the beginning, they cost more to run. The mini-split systems are so energy-efficient that they pay for themselves in a short period of time. Mini splits are also very quiet, making for a much more pleasant and comfortable experience than window units. Finally, mini-splits are stylish, modern, and streamlined, giving an aesthetically pleasing solution that can often be placed unobtrusively above a window, or on a wall of choice, rather than inside a window (blocking light and making the window unusable, as well as being an eyesore outside the window.)
Each brand offers their own manufacturer’s warranty on the machine, from 10-12 years. We offer a 1-year warranty on labor for all machines we install. After the 1-year, you will pay for labor if we need to come and fix something on the machine. The manufacturer’s warranty will cover either the part needed for repair if necessary, or replacing the machine if necessary.
If you are not sure about getting air conditioning installed, all we can say is, installing air conditioning can be a life changer. It makes that much difference in people’s lives.
Hawaii is hot and humid. In summer, if there are no trade winds, it can be downright unbearably hot. Especially for older people, children, and pets, when it’s too hot, it’s hard to function properly. People become listless, depressed, grumpy, irritable, and find it hard to concentrate, think properly, and do the regular things that need to be done. It’s just too hot!
Air conditioning installation is an easy process. We can help you determine the size, brand, and number of air conditioning units needed to cool your space. We take care of everything, both the air conditioning installation and the electrical hook ups, because we are licensed AC contractors and licensed Electrical contractors, saving you time and money. Most residential installs take from half a day up to two days. Commercial or larger residential installs can take a day or two longer.
After installation, it’s common for us to hear people say that getting air conditioning literally changed their life, because the whole family is so much more comfortable, and therefore so much happier. It’s such a relief to have a cool and comfortable home or office. The stress and discomfort of always being hot, sticky, and overheated is gone. Everyone can function again. Everything is better!! Most people say, why didn’t we get this done years ago?
