With summer well on its way, you are going to want to be sure that your ductless system is equipped to keep you and your family cool and comfortable when the temperature outside skyrockets. Unlike traditional air conditioning systems, your ductless system works hard year-round. Therefore, it is more likely to sustain wear and tear. Plus, the unique set-up of a ductless system means that it will also require repairs quite unlike those of other HVAC systems. Don’t worry, though! As long as you have a great team of HVAC technicians to handle these repairs, your system will be successful.

Be on the Lookout For…
Each of the wall-mounted air handlers in your home has a series of connections routed through a hole behind it. These connections include a power line, a refrigerant line, and a condensate line. The condensate line is responsible for removing water moisture from the cooling process so it does not enter your home.
However, the condensate line may develop leaks over time, causing water to collect between the back of the air handler and the wall. Eventually, this can lead to structural damage to the wall and can cause the air handler to fall. Not only will you have to deal with the cost of repairing your wall, but you are also going to have to replace the air handler. Therefore, it is important to call for repairs as soon as you notice any sign of water on the wall surrounding the air handler.
Broken Air Handlers
Over time, you may find that one of the air handlers in your home is not functioning as it should, either not producing enough or any output. Although this can be a nuisance, it is not as big of a deal as you might think. Sure, the room it is located in might be warmer than other areas of your home, however, the rest of the air handlers in your house should continue to operate normally. It is very rare that you should ever need to replace the entire ductless system.
Your ductless system works much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what sets the ductless system apart is that it has significantly more refrigerant lines than a traditional AC, which means that the chance of a refrigerant leak is much higher. Signs of a refrigerant leak include a decline in cooling power and odd hissing noises. You might even notice fluid dripping from the system. If you suspect that you are dealing with this type of leak, be sure to contact an expert right away.
