Are you one of the many homeowners using a ductless system to stay cool this season? If so, you should ensure that it’s getting the proper maintenance. You may assume that just like any other type of air conditioning system, or ductless mini-split only needs maintenance once a year. However, ductless units need maintenance more often than that, for reasons we’ve highlighted below.
Maintenance Twice a Year
Typically, scheduling maintenance once a year is sufficient enough to keep your cooling system in good shape. Most homeowners schedule this maintenance appointment before they are going to be getting the most use out of their system… so for air conditioners that would be in the spring, right? What you have to keep in mind, however, is that ductless systems are used all year round.
When the heating season hits, you’ll switch your ductless system to its heating mode. Because your ductless system is used so often, it gets double the amount of wear and tear that any other model of air conditioning system receives. So this means that it needs maintenance twice as often to stay in good working order. To keep your ductless unit in the best condition possible, be sure to schedule maintenance for both summer and winter.
It’s important for homeowners to understand just how important preventive maintenance is for their HVAC system. Timely repairs are always a good idea if you notice any troubling symptoms, and maintenance helps your HVAC technician spot these symptoms. It’s not wise to just wait for problems to occur before calling for professional services, as by that time they may have already reached a critical stage that will require emergency repairs or repairs that are costlier than they would have been otherwise.
