Signs Your Ductless Mini-Split Needs Repair

Prompt air conditioner repairs are essential for protecting your system from further damage. As such, we recommend scheduling a ductless mini-split repair if you notice any of these issues:

  • Blowing warm air: Warm air blowing from the indoor air handler is typically caused by refrigerant leaks or compressor failure.
  • Ice buildup on coils: Frozen coils are often caused by dirt and grime buildup on evaporator coils.
  • Frequently tripped breakers: This often indicates the compressor is overheating. However, it can also be caused by dirty air filters, improper grounding, or fluctuations in the power supply.
  • Water leaks: Water leaks are caused by clogs in the condensate drain line. Often, these leaks are accompanied by mold or algae.
  • Grinding noises: Grinding noises are caused by bad bearings in the motor. This can cause overheating and will burn out the motor.
  • Unresponsive to controls: Failure to respond to controls can be caused by electrical faults or a malfunctioning reversing valve.

When To Replace vs. Repair Your Ductless HVAC System

With proper care and careful attention to maintenance, your ductless HVAC system can last 20 years or more. However, they’ll eventually need to be replaced.

When deciding whether to repair or replace your ductless mini-split, consider these factors carefully:

  • Cost of repairs: If your ductless AC system requires repairs exceeding 50% of the replacement cost, then it’s usually better to replace it.
  • Age: If the unit is nearing the end of its estimated serviceable life span, upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient model is often more cost-effective than continued repairs.
  • Repair frequency: If repair frequency and cost are increasing, it indicates your system is nearing the end of its serviceable life span.
  • Diminished efficiency: If the system performance is declining, and newer models offer SEER ratings that are 510 points greater than your current model, then it’s more cost-effective to replace it with a new, energy-efficient system.
  • Warranty coverage: Always check your warranty and perform the maintenance tasks required to preserve warranty coverage. If the warranty covers any required repairs, then repairs are advisable over replacement.

The Importance of Routine Maintenance

Preventative ductless mini-split maintenance is a cost-effective investment in your comfort. We recommend scheduling annual maintenance every spring to ensure optimal performance throughout the summer.

Some of the most important benefits of routine maintenance include:

  • Lower utility bills
  • Enhanced comfort
  • Improved indoor air quality
  • Increased energy-efficiency
  • Reduced repair costs
  • Preserved warranty coverage
