Does Your Ductless HVAC Equipment Need Repairs?
Ductless HVAC systems offer energy-efficient, cost-effective heating and cooling. They’re small, flexible, and capable of zoned climate control. If you notice any of these issues in your Watkinsville, GA home, it’s important to arrange professional ductless HVAC repairs.
One of the advantages of ductless HVAC systems is their quiet operation. If your system starts to make loud or unusual sounds, you’ll need urgent ductless HVAC repairs. Buzzing or humming sounds may be due to an electrical issue and grinding or clanging sounds could come from a loose or damaged part.
Low Airflow or Insufficient Cooling
If one indoor unit has low airflow, check its filter. A dirty filter hinders airflow. Low airflow from all of the indoor units could also be caused by a failing compressor or condenser. In a ductless HVAC system, each indoor unit has a supply of refrigerant that circulates to the outdoor unit and back again. Insufficient cooling could result from a refrigerant leak. You’ll need ductless HVAC repairs performed by a professional service technician for a refrigerant leak.
Each indoor unit of a ductless HVAC system has its own conduit. Within the conduit, there’s a condensate drain. If the drain cracks, corrodes, or clogs, water may leak from the conduit. You’ll need prompt ductless HVAC repairs if you notice any water leaks from the indoor equipment.
Higher Electricity Bills
According to the Department of Energy, ductless HVAC systems use 30% less energy to heat or cool your home compared to a central heating and cooling system. Short-cycling, a dirty filter, or a failing compressor could cause the system’s electricity use to increase. If your electricity bills suddenly go up, and you haven’t reprogrammed your thermostat, you may need ductless HVAC repairs.
