How to Know If Your Ductless HVAC System Needs Repair & Maintenance

How to Know If Your Ductless HVAC System Needs Repair & Maintenance

q qq q

It’s essential to know how to tell if your ductless system is not working correctly. After all, you don’t want a minor issue turning into a big one. That’s why we’ve listed some indicators that mean you might need HVAC maintenance and repair.

Four Signs You Need HVAC Maintenance & Service

  • Higher Energy Costs

Have you noticed your unit is constantly working/cycling? Accessive working/cycling indicates that your system is not running as efferently as it should, which will cause it to work more and increase your energy bill (sometimes by a lot). Such things as components breaking down, dirty filters, and your system’s age can all be factors.

HVAC maintenance is an easy way homeowners can avoid this from happening. As mentioned above, if you have an older system, it might be best to replace it with a more energy-efficient model

  •  Lack of Heat

If you notice that your ductless system isn’t generating any heat, this means you either have a clogged filter or an electrical issue. In the event of a clogged filter, the clog will stop hot air from making its way through the air handler. It is important to note that this may not affect your entire system since these handlers are separate units.

  • A Leak

When you have a leak in your ductless system, this means either your system is leaking refrigerant, or you have a drain clog leak. A leak can also potentially cause moisture to accumulate, which can wreak havoc on your home and air handlers. Due to the poisonous nature of refrigerants, any leak can be hard to detect. Therefore, it needs to be taken care of by an HVAC professional as soon as possible.

  • Odd Noises

Odd and strange noises can be an indication you need HVAC maintenance and repair. You can often identify leaks because of a hiss. Worn components like bearings may cause a grinding type of noise. If you notice these or other strange noises coming from your system, it’s vital to call in a professional to avoid further damage to your system.
