My EZ Install for Beginners: User Tips, Benefits & More

More and more homeowners are ditching their central and window air conditioners for ductless mini splits, and it’s easy to see why. They offer many different benefits over HVAC systems. For example, their heightened efficiency leads to reduced waste and energy bills. They are also very versatile, as their heating and cooling capabilities make them viable HVAC options all year round, and they double as air filters, dehumidifiers, and purifiers.

Mini splits are also popular because of their simple installation process ... and we found a way to make it even simpler! We at ComfortUp have partnered with My EZ Install to provide home and commercial property owners with a stress-free, streamlined installation process for ductless mini splits. Read below to learn more!

What Is My EZ Install?

After purchasing a mini split, you are faced with a choice concerning installation; you can install it yourself or you can have a professional HVAC technician or contractor handle the job. A DIY (do it yourself) installation is not ideal because it can be time-consuming, complicated, and the DIY application will VOID your manufacturer’s warranty. It also causes countless problems with your mini split in the future.

Professional installation is always recommended over DIY installation, but it can feel overwhelming as well. Researching different contractors, calling for estimates, and comparing your options can be stressful and time-consuming. Fortunately, all of this stress is eliminated with ComfortUp and My EZ Install.

After purchasing a mini split from ComfortUp, My EZ Install allows you to search their extensive network of HVAC professionals. You can select up to five professionals in your area to speak with for estimates concerning your product’s installation, and you can then review their proposals and information to make your choice.

When speaking to contractors, make sure you have certain information readily available. You should know exactly what you purchased and communicate this with them, as the installation process is different depending on the type of system.

For example, you need to specify if you purchased a single unit or multi-zone system. Single-zone systems heat or cool only the room where the mini split is located, but multi-zone systems connect multiple mini splits in different rooms or levels. This allows you to control the one room without altering the other. This is another huge benefit of mini splits, but it makes the installation process a bit more extensive. Next, you’ll need to research each potential contractor. Fortunately, My EZ Install provides their Better Business Bureau (BBB) information when accessible.

After purchasing a mini split, choosing your contractor options, and providing the necessary information, there is still some more work to do to prepare for the installation. First, pick the mini split’s location(s) in your home. You’ll then need to make sure it can properly work in the room, so clear away any obstructions such as furniture, and then your contractor can help with suggestions for the optimal placement of your unit.

Why Should I Use My EZ Install?

The most obvious benefit to using My EZ Install is the elimination of time and energy wasted by comparing prices and contractors on your own. You don’t have to worry about anything, as all contractors in the My EZ Install database are trustworthy and will complete the installation process in a timely, efficient, and professional manner.

Professional installation has many benefits over DIY installation. Many mini split warranties are voided when the product is not installed professionally, and this makes repairs or system replacements very costly. Improper installation makes the system more likely to break, and this could even lead to damage in your home or business. An improperly sized mini split does not perform nearly as well as a properly sized one, as each unit is designed for a room or area of a specific size.
