The Basics of a Ductless Mini Split AC System
A ductless mini split AC system is a great alternative to the standard forced air system that requires ductwork throughout the house. With a ductless system, there are no ducts required and all you need to operate them is air handlers on the inside of the house and a condenser or heat pump on the outside. The large, bulky units commonly associated with standard AC systems are no longer required.
From the condenser or heat pump, thin copper pipes or tubing is connected to individual air handlers, and cool air is sent through blowers mounted on the walls of your home. The blowers themselves aren’t bulky looking, and won’t take away from the design quality of your home. The air handlers inside the house enable you to have much more control over which rooms are cooled and which aren’t, making ductless systems a popular choice.
Benefits of Ductless AC
Having a ductless mini split AC system in your home offers several benefits over the standard AC system. These include improved energy efficiency, quiet operation, taking up less space and the ability to customize your family’s cooling experience.
It is this temperature control that most homeowners love about ductless mini split air conditioning. With a regular system that uses ductwork, every room gets the same amount of cooling. With a ductless system, you can control the temperature of individual rooms, giving you the ability to make everyone in the house happy. Saving money from the increased energy efficiency doesn’t hurt either. When you don’t have to send cool air to every room, you can be more selective and keep that extra money in your pocket.
Common Ductless Mini Split Problems
Ductless Mini Splits are gaining popularity among homeowners. They’re cost-effective, efficient and flexible. However, just like any machine, these types of units do require repairs from time to time. Here are some common issues that affect ductless mini-split systems.
Ductless mini-splits need to be cleaned regularly to ensure proper airflow and faster cooling throughout each room. A clogged or dirty filter, for example, will cause your system to struggle to pull in air, forcing it to work harder in getting the room to the desired temperature. We recommend a routine cleaning at least once annually for maximum efficiency.
Mini split systems require refrigerant refills every once in a while, to maintain cool air. Another issue could be a damaged control component or motor. It’s important to call a professional especially if you’re dealing with low levels of refrigerant or a leakage because the longer your AC stays with low refrigerant levels, the more damage could happen to the unit.
Several electrical issues could cause problems for your ductless system. A malfunctioning thermostat can cause one or more air handlers to short cycle, turning your unit on and off every few minutes and increasing the likelihood that it will break down prematurely. Other electrical issues include the system refusing to power down or a complete power failure. If you have any reason to suspect an electrical problem, call an expert for repairs right away.
