Ductless systems have a lot of benefits, but they just as prone to issues as any other system. If you’re using a ductless system to stay cool this summer, you’ll want to be on the lookout for any issues that may come up due to the increased strain. Time is of the essence when it comes to repairing ductless issues. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the common ductless problems you may have to deal with in the next few months.
Air Handler Issues
Ductless systems make use of individual air handlers to circulate air throughout the various rooms in the homes. These air handlers make use of oiled bearings to reduce the strain on them during operation. The bearings do wear down over time, causing the friction on the air handler to increase. This produces a loud grinding sound. If the bearings are not replaced in time, the friction on the system will increase until it eventually burns itself out. Listen for grinding noises coming from your system, and call for repairs if one of your air handlers doesn’t seem to be working properly.
Like practically all air conditioning systems, ductless systems use refrigerant to move heat out of the home. The system does not consume refrigerant during operation, but recycles it back and forth. If a leak develops in the refrigerant line, the system will be drained of the fluid that it needs to cool the home. This will cause a steady decline in the output of the system, followed by various other parts breaking down. If you notice liquid dripping from your system, call for repairs immediately.
