The Right Way to Deal With Ductless Mini-Split Issues

Having a ductless mini-split air conditioner installed provides many benefits, especially during the summer months. While they are reliable at keeping your home cool and comfortable, what happens when your system isn’t running the way it’s supposed to? Our Carrier® heater repair team at Kemnitz Air Conditioning & Heating Inc. discusses what you need to look for here:

The Common Issues

  • Your system isn’t turning on – This type of problem can have several causes. There could be something wrong with the power source inside your house, but there may also be problems with the outdoor unit. To determine what’s causing the problem, have it checked by a trusted HVAC technician.

  • Inadequate cooling – Over time, dirt and dust can build up inside the filters of your ductless mini-split system. This buildup will block airflow and cause a drop in cooling efficiency. The system will consume more energy trying to keep the indoor temperatures cool, but it won’t always produce enough air to keep your home comfortable.

  • Unusual water/refrigerant leaks – Just like traditional HVAC systems, ductless mini-splits create condensation when they cool the air that flows through them. Water leaks near the wall where your mini-split unit is installed can have several causes. It could be as simple as a backed-up condensate line, or it may be another, more serious issue. Either way, it should be checked by a trusted cooling and heating repair technician who has the right experience for the job.

The Best Way to Troubleshoot Your Mini-Split Air Conditioner

To avoid causing more damage to your ductless mini-split system, make sure to have it inspected and maintained regularly. This should be done by technicians who know how to troubleshoot minor issues and keep your system in good condition throughout its expected lifespan. Even if it’s just changing the filters and cleaning your unit, a professional can do the job more thoroughly and efficiently.
