How to Fix Common Problems with Ductless Mini-Splits
Ductless mini-split systems have become quite popular among homeowners for both heating and cooling. They provide a flexible and energy-efficient home comfort solution. However, like any other heating and cooling system, ductless mini-splits can sometimes experience problems that require attention.
Here are several common problems that may require a mini-split repair along with possible solutions to fix them:
- Leaking Water: If you notice water leaking from your indoor unit, it may be due to a clogged drain line. To fix this, turn off the unit and use a wet/dry vacuum to remove any clogs in the drain line. Regular maintenance is always a good idea to prevent future clogs. Call Brackett Heating, Air & Plumbing to schedule your appointment today.
- No Power: If your indoor unit is not turning on, check the power source. Make sure the unit is plugged in and the circuit breaker is not tripped. If this does not work, the batteries in the remote control could need changed. If after trying these solutions the mini-split still doesn’t turn on, call Brackett for a mini-split repair.
- Dirty Air Filters: Dirty air filters can reduce the efficiency of your mini-split and cause the unit to malfunction. To fix this, remove the filter and clean it with a soft brush or rinse it with water. Allow the filter to dry completely before reinstalling it.
- Frozen Coils: If you notice ice on your indoor unit, it may be due to a dirty air filter, low refrigerant levels, or a faulty thermostat. If the problem is the refrigerant or something else, call Brackett Heating, Air & Plumbing to have your mini-split inspected and repaired.
- Loud Operation: If your mini-split is making unusual noises, it may be due to loose or damaged parts. To avoid voiding the manufacturer’s warranty, call Brackett to schedule an appointment for a comprehensive inspection and repair.
