Avoid These Common Ductless Cooling System Problems

With temperatures steadily increasing, we can no longer ignore the fact that it’s almost time to turn on our air conditioners. Hopefully, you’ve taken the time to schedule your ductless cooling system maintenance appointment already. If not, it’s never too late to do so!

Ductless cooling systems are highly efficient and durable. However, just like any other HVAC equipment, they can run into problems. Lack of maintenance is one of the leading reasons you’ll run into issues with your ductless system, but not the only problem. We’ve shared some more of the most common ductless problems below.

Improper Operation

Be sure when you use your ductless system—or any cooling system for that manner—that you haven’t left any windows or doors cracked open. Even the smallest draft can cause your ductless system to work harder than it should have to, decreasing it’s performing power and costing you more in the long run.

Refrigerant Leak

It is not normal for refrigerant to leak from your ductless cooling system. The unit is supplied with enough refrigerant upon installation to get it through its entire lifespan. If you notice less cooling power, be sure to have your system inspected right away. A refrigerant leak can cause significant damage to the rest of the system.

Poor Drainage

If condensation fails to drain properly, it can cause problems in your air conditioning system. This is especially true in humid climates where moist air is more likely to condense and collect on cooler surfaces. Your ductless system must also be installed level to the ground to prevent other drainage problems.
