DUCTLESS AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE
The Importance of Regular Maintenance for your Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning System
We can't stress it enough... TAKE CARE OF YOUR SYSTEMS!
Heating and air conditioning systems need regular maintenance just like your car. When your dishwasher is on the fritz, don't be shocked – realize you run that thing nearly every day and when was the last time you had it serviced? Your ductless mini-split heating and air conditioning system is no different. Whether it's one unit or multiple installations, you must service them annually to keep them running at peak performance and lasting for years to come.
SERVICE APPOINTMENTS INCLUDE:
A visit by a professional air conditioning technician
Filters cleaned or replaced, as necessary
Evaporator coils cleaned
Outdoor condensing unit cleaned
Refrigerant lines inspected
Insulation wraps inspected
Debris cleared from outdoor condensing unit

Today more and more homeowners in the Southern Tier and Ithaca are enjoying the comfort and reliability of ductless mini-split air conditioning. Ductless A/C is designed to cool individual rooms (or “zones”) via wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted units that can be managed individually. As with all HVAC systems, ductless mini-split AC requires regular maintenance to keep up with regular wear and tear and catch any minor issues before they lead to major problems (meaning, MORE MONEY!).
Common Repairs for Ductless Air Conditioning Systems
Compressors pressurize the refrigerant in an air conditioner, producing cool air. If your ductless system’s compressor is not working properly, it will cause warm air to blow instead of cold air.
Each indoor unit contains a fan, a set of coils, and a filter. A breakdown with any of these components will cause the ductless system to malfunction.
REFRIGERANT OR DRAIN LINE PROBLEMS
Each indoor blower connects to the outdoor unit via a refrigerant line and a condensate drain line that run through an external wall; both of these lines can develop leaks or clogs that back up the system.
Minor electrical problems will be indicated with a fault code on your unit’s display and can be fixed by referring to the owner’s manual. However if the display is blank, a fuse or circuit breaker may have blown or loose wiring may be to blame.
