As we get deeper into the heating season, you are going to start relying on your heating system more and more. No matter what heating system you have, you need to be aware of the different issues that can affect it over time. If you have a ductless heating system installed in your home, keep an eye out for signs of different problems. Let’s go over a couple of those problems now, and the symptoms that they cause.
Loss of Output
Perhaps the most frustrating of possible problems, a loss of output from your ductless heating system can be caused by a couple of different things. It is possible that you have a leak in your refrigerant line, which is draining the system of the fluid it needs to heat your home. Remember that ductless systems do not burn fuel to generate heat, instead using refrigerant to move thermal energy from one place to another. It is also possible that your system is stuck in cooling mode, which means that your reversing valve needs to be repaired.
No Air Flow
If there’s no air flow at all in one of your rooms, it could mean that the air handler in that unit is burnt out. Without the air handler, the condenser coil will keep releasing heat but the unit will have no way to circulate it into the room. It is also possible that you have a power problem, if your unit doesn’t seem to be working at all. If the problem is spread across multiple units, it could mean a larger problem is at work. Either way, you are going to want to schedule repairs as soon as possible.
