Is Maintenance Still Necessary with a Ductless System?
Ductless HVAC systems, commonly referred to as ductless mini splits, have gained a considerable following in the residential sector. They offer many benefits, including the use of heat pump technology in order to maintain comfortable temperatures throughout the year, as well as outstanding efficiency and the ability to control temperatures throughout the house by zone. Of course, they also eliminate the need for ductwork in the home altogether. However, you must remember that this seemingly simpler design does not mean that your ductless cooling system does not require the same attention that any other system does. You must still schedule professional ductless cooling system maintenance, and Air Mechanical, Inc. is the company to call for doing so. It is true that many issues with different types of cooling systems can stem from problematic ductwork, including issues with improper air balancing, leaks, and poor sealing. However, routine HVAC maintenance services entail much more than simply evaluating air ducts. Ductless cooling systems share a lot in common with more traditional systems, and this can include many of the problems that those types of systems encounter. Like any other cooling system, for instance, your ductless air conditioner requires refrigerant in order to facilitate the heat transfer process. If you have even a minor refrigerant leak, your refrigerant charge is going to be low. This will seriously impede the cooling capability of your ductless cooling system. The additional strain on that system and its components, as it struggles to effectively cool your home, can lead to a number of different problems, including high energy costs and subpar performance quality.During routine maintenance, though, we'll check your refrigerant levels, charging your system and pinpointing any leaks as needed. Additionally, we will thoroughly clean your ductless air conditioner during routine maintenance. This may sound like one of the simpler aspects of a tune-up, but never underestimate just how important it is to have a clean system. Should your air filters be dirty and clogged, or if any electrical contacts and components are coated with dust and debris, there is just no way in which you can hope for your system to function as effectively and efficiently as possible. All mechanical systems require professional maintenance services to function at peak performance levels, and your ductless AC is no exception to this rule. Contact Air Mechanical, Inc. today to schedule your ductless cooling system maintenance services. That way, you can cool your home with the quality of performance that you deserve.
