Ductless mini-split systems are known for being energy-efficient, cost-effective alternatives to traditional duct systems. Like all mechanical equipment, though, a ductless mini-split will develop issues at some point. The following are ways to troubleshoot a malfunctioning ductless system in your Awendaw, SC, home:
Damage to Outdoor Unit
The outdoor section of your ductless mini-split system will attract the buildup of debris and dirt if you don’t maintain it. When not cleaned promptly, the accumulated debris and dirt will damage surfaces, parts or even cause coolant leakage.
Ductless HVAC systems with damaged outdoor sections won’t heat or cool your home efficiently. The good news is that with regular professional HVAC maintenance and repair services, you can get most outdoor damages repaired to boost your system’s efficiency.
Drain Line Clogs
Dirt and dust in your mini-split HVAC system could cause the clogging of the drain line. Once it clogs, it could make the entire HVAC system fail. In addition, it could cause the leakage of the indoor air handler, affecting overall system performance.
Professional HVAC maintenance and ductless repair service technicians handle most of these issues to get your system working efficiently. In addition, they will get any leakages sealed and system failures troubleshot to optimize the efficiency of your HVAC system.
Blowing Air But Not Cooling
In some instances, you’ll discover that your ductless mini-split HVAC system blows air but doesn’t cool your home. That happens as a result of a dirty air filter, clogged coil or faulty fan. It could also result from a defective blower wheel, control board or motor.
Most of these issues are complex and require the talented hands of a qualified and experienced HVAC specialist. DIY approaches will often damage the HVAC system further, doubling or even tripling the repair costs.
