Pro Ace Heating and Air Conditioning Ameristar ductless installation procedure.

– Ductless systems comprise two parts, the condenser that is installed outside and the wall mount unit that is installed inside.  Normally we place the condenser on the balcony and run a line set (pipes) and electrical wire to the indoor unit.

– The technician will drill a 2-3 inch hole for the line set and the wire. The hole will be sealed and covered to avoid damage and leakage.

– The technician will provide power to the outdoor unit.  Usually they will run a new wire from the electrical panel, which is 208/230 volt.
