Signs Your Ductless HVAC Needs to be Repaired
Ductless mini-split systems can last for 20 years or possibly longer. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t need ductless HVAC repairs from qualified service technicians in Greensboro, NC, from time to time. To ensure you get timely repairs, stay alert for these signs your ductless system needs repairs.
Ductless systems are designed with whisper-quiet features. You shouldn’t notice the unit’s running. So, if your unit buzzes, whirs, screeches, bangs, or makes any other strange or unusual sounds call certified comfort specialists to check it out immediately.
Higher Than Normal Energy Bills
One of the main advantages of ductless systems is their energy efficiency. According to Energy.gov, nearly 30% of a home’s energy losses are caused by faulty ducted HVAC systems. Installing a ductless mini-split system should noticeably reduce your home’s energy usage. So, if you notice your energy bills with a mini-split system, something’s wrong.
Have you noticed your mini-split system isn’t producing sufficient airflow? Airflow problems happen, and the top four causes include:
- Blocked condenser unit: Make sure to clean debris from the outside unit to prevent it from being sucked into the unit
- Clogged filter: Change it regularly according to manufacturer recommendations to prevent this problem.
- Dirty condenser coils: Clean the coils one or two times a year to prevent this problem.
- Obstructed vents: Make sure nothing is blocking the vents and keep furniture and other objects at least 18 inches from the vent.
If after checking for the issues mentioned above and the unit is still experiencing problems, the best thing to do is to get in touch with a qualified service technician to schedule an inspection. The technician will thoroughly inspect the unit and make any adjustments or repairs needed to get airflow restored.
It’s always a good idea to make repairs when you notice a problem with your system. For more information about ductless HVAC repairs and mini-split systems, call Total Heating & Cooling, Inc.
