Your ductless system will last longer when you use it properly and maintain it per manufacturer recommendations. If you notice diminished performance, call Evolved Mechanical right away.
The Most Common Problems Your Ductless System Might Run Into
- Compressor issues – The compressor for your ductless system is in the outdoor unit. If the compressor isn’t working correctly, you will feel warm air blowing from your indoor blower instead of cool air. Compressors contain refrigerant and are complex to handle, so make sure to call a trained and certified technician.
- Thermostat errors – Thermostat wiring trouble can lead to one or more of the air handlers working incorrectly.
- Damaged motors – Ductless systems use small motors to power their blower fans in the air handlers. With a damaged motor, an air handler can stop sending out conditioned air.
- Problems with the refrigerant or condensate drain line – The indoor unit of a ductless system is connected to the outdoor unit via a conduit through an exterior wall. This conduit contains a power cord, a refrigerant line, and a condensate drain line. Due to their length, the condensate and refrigerant lines can sometimes develop leaks or clogs.
Should You Repair or Replace Your Ductless System?
There are several questions you need to consider when deciding to either replace or repair your cooling and heating system:
- How old is your system? If your system is more than 15 years old, it may be wiser to invest in new, higher efficiency equipment than repair it. A new system could cut your energy costs by up to 40%.
- What is the overall condition of your system? If your system is in solid condition, a simple repair could work. But if your system breaks down often, you should consider replacing it.
- How often is your system operating? If your system has been used extensively, it may be time to replace it.
- What is the efficiency level of your current system? If investing in new equipment would help you make your home more energy efficient and save money, you should seriously consider replacing the old system. Replacing parts of your old system will not improve the efficiency.
