Signs your Ductless Mini-Split Needs Repair

There are a host of different signs that your ductless mini-split system is in need of repair. The sooner you have the issues addressed, the sooner your space will be comfortable again. Here are some symptoms you might notice:

Your Electrical Bills are Higher than Usual

Normally, using a ductless mini-split HVAC system can help you save up to 30% annually on your energy bills. However, if you find you are spending more on your power bills than usual, that could be a sign that your ductless mini-split system is not functioning as efficiently as it could be, and it may be time for a checkup.

You Hear Odd Noises When The Unit is On

Have you heard any clanging or banging noises coming from your ductless mini-split recently? More often than not, those noises are the result of a loose or detached part. This can cause even further damage to the system if not repaired promptly, so it’s best to not use the unit until the noises are investigated. 

Ice on the Evaporator Coils

Your mini split’s evaporator coils can freeze up due to insufficient airflow, typically caused by a clogged air filter, dirty evaporator coil, or a backed-up condensate drain. Icy evaporator coils also lead to insufficient airflow and decreased efficiency as well as cause damage to the system.

Malfunctioning Controls

If your ductless mini-split is not responding to thermostat changes or isn’t reaching the set temperature properly, it could be an electrical issue or a problem with the reversing valve. Talk to an HVAC technician to troubleshoot and fix the problem. 


Benefits of Ductless Mini-Split Repair

When your ductless mini-split system runs into problems, they rarely if ever go away on their own. There are several advantages to scheduling a repair for your ductless mini-split other than better climate control:

Preventing Further Damage

The longer you delay repairs on your ductless mini-split unit, the more you risk further damage to the unit. It is always best to get any problems with your ductless mini-split system checked out as soon as possible to minimize both damage and long-term repair costs.

Increasing the System’s Lifespan

By scheduling regular maintenance and promptly addressing any needed repairs, you make sure that you and your family can reap the benefits of your ductless mini-split system for years to come.

Decreasing Energy Bills

When your ductless mini-split unit is working as it should, you maximize its efficiency, keeping your energy bills low while still keeping your home comfortable.
