Air Conditioning Maintenance: Does Your Ductless System Need a Tune-Up?

Has it been 6 months since your last ductless system tune-up? If so, then yes, your ductless system needs a tune-up again!

The fact of the matter is, if you are utilizing a ductless mini-split system for your heating and cooling, you need to schedule maintenance twice as often as other HVAC systems—after all, you’re using it twice as much. Without this bi-annual maintenance, you simply won’t be able to enjoy the full benefits of your ductless cooling and heating system since it won’t be able to perform as efficiently or effectively.

The Power of Preventive HVAC Maintenance

When it comes to keeping any HVAC system in good shape for as long as possible, being proactive is essential. Many of the problems that can arise in air conditioners, heaters, and 2-in-1 heat pump systems start out subtly. They don’t often give off symptoms that you’d recognize unless you pay extra special close attention to your system every day.

It can be hard to catch problems early enough to prevent any damage. But you can prevent this damage by staying on top of your maintenance appointments.

Preventive maintenance is much better than simply waiting for a problem to prevent itself, because it’s proactive and allows you to fix issues before they even start to impact your comfort or your energy bills. The earlier problems are caught, the cheaper they are to fix! You can save a significant amount of money on repair costs over the life of your system by doing this. This is assuming, of course, that you schedule maintenance often enough.

Ductless Maintenance Timing

With a standard central air conditioner or furnace, professional maintenance should be done once a year. This gives our technicians the opportunity to thoroughly check over the system and make sure it will last through the entire season. The thing with a ductless system, though, is that it operates year-round, so you have to make sure it will operate reliably that whole time.

Ductless systems offer both effective heating and air conditioning, which is the main reason homeowners have them installed. Unfortunately, this also means that ductless systems accumulate twice as much wear and tear. The year-round use that most ductless systems are subjected to means you need to schedule twice as much maintenance.
