If you’re using a ductless system to condition your home this summer, you should keep an eye out for some of the common problems that it may run into. As with all climate control systems, the more you use your ductless system, the more stress you will place on it and the more likely it will be for problems to occur. Let’s take a look at some of the symptoms of common ductless problems you can run into this summer.
Refrigerant is the core of most air conditioning systems, and ductless systems are no different. It is the fluid that enables the system to absorb heat from one place, and release it in another. Ductless systems do not consume refrigerant, and the initial charge the system receives upon installation should be enough to last its entire lifespan. If a leak develops in the refrigerant line, however, it will drain the system of the fluid it needs to operate properly. This will cause a steady decline in output, followed by various parts of the system malfunctioning and breaking down. Call for repairs if you ever notice fluid of any kind leaking from your ductless system.
A ductless system relies on a web of electrical connections to keep itself running smoothly. If one of those connections malfunctions, it can have a substantial impact on the entire system. If you notice that one of your air handlers doesn’t seem to be operating properly, or if the whole system is turning on and off at random, you may have an electrical problem. Turn the system off and call for repairs as soon as possible, for your safety as well as to prevent property damage.
