Ductless Mini Split Repair
There is no one perfect HVAC system that’s right for every home. Each family member and room has unique needs and wants when it comes to heating and cooling. That’s why more versatile, high-efficiency options like ductless systems are becoming increasingly popular in the greater Cincinnati, OH, area. But just like systems with ductwork, a ductless system, also called a ductless mini split, can break down.
At Adams Heating & Cooling, we’re trained to repair and maintain ductless mini splits using industry-leading techniques and equipment. And if your ductless system’s needs go beyond repairs, we also specialize in ductless and mini split unit installation and ductless mini split maintenance.
Understanding a Ductless System
As it says in the name, ductless systems don’t include any ductwork. This is the major difference between mini splits and traditional heating and cooling systems, such as furnaces, heat pumps, and air conditioners. Ductless mini splits are also smaller and have fewer parts and pieces, making them easier to install and adaptable to a variety of spaces and uses.
A ductless mini split is made up of an outdoor condensing unit, one or more indoor units, and a small conduit that connects the two. A typical outdoor condenser can work with up to eight indoor units at a time.
When to Use a Ductless Mini Split
Ductless mini splits are usually used in areas that don’t have even temperatures or need additional heating and cooling solutions to supplement a traditional HVAC system. A ductless mini split can maximize the comfort in your Cincinnati, OH, home, and even allow each member of the family to have their ideal temperature in their own unique space.
Areas that could benefit from a mini split system include:
- Finished basements
- New additions
- Rooms with uneven temperatures
- Enclosed patios or sunrooms
Benefits of a Ductless Mini Split
Besides more flexible installation, ductless systems have a wide range of benefits, including:
Better Indoor Air Quality
In a traditional system, dust and air pollutants collect in your ductwork and spread throughout your air over time. With a ductless system, these contaminants have a much harder time spreading from room to room, which improves indoor air quality throughout your home.
No Major Renovations
When you install new ductwork or have ductwork repairs, HVAC specialists have to get into your walls and ceilings. This disrupts your home for longer and is more costly. A ductless mini split cooling and heating system can be added to any home with minimal effort. The only renovation that occurs is a small hole that is drilled through the wall to connect your indoor and outdoor units.
Ductless systems can also work alongside existing ductwork so you don’t have to bear the costly expense of having existing ductwork moved or uninstalled.
Traditional systems can lose energy as hot air filters out and cold air dissipates or escapes as it works its way through ductwork. Since a ductless mini split system sends hot and cold air directly into your home through its air handlers, there is no energy loss. This improves your home’s temperature and also lowers energy costs.
Signs Your Ductless Mini Split Needs Repair
While the benefits of ductless mini splits appear to be endless, like any heating and cooling system, these parts can wear down over time and will eventually need repairs.
Signs that your mini split could use a repair include:
- Unusual noises
- Water leaks
- Unusual odors
- Inefficient heating or cooling
Just like traditional systems, ductless mini split HVAC systems need proper care and expert repairs to keep up their efficient, flexible performance in your Cincinnati, OH, home. If you notice any of these indications that your mini split needs repairs, call Adams Heating & Cooling for immediate and affordable repair services.
