Ductless cooling may look very different from other systems, and the way a ductless system delivers air is certainly different from ducted systems, but when it comes to repairs, there are a lot of similarities between ducted and ductless systems. Some people may worry that a ductless system is more complicated to repair, but it isn’t any more complicated than a traditional split-system AC. Here are some of the common cooling repairs our Shaw’s Air Conditioning technicians see with ductless cooling systems:
Whole-home air conditioning systems need refrigerant in order to operate. Refrigerant leaks are common repairs, but locating them can be challenging, and only certified experts can physically handle refrigerant. It is important to repair a refrigerant leak as soon as it is detected as these kinds of leaks can lead to serious operational issues with your system.
Condensate Drain Clogs
Each indoor blower has its own condensate drain line that drains the excess water from the blower to the outdoors. Condensate drain lines need to be cleaned at least once a year or they can clog from stuck debris and/or mold development.
The compressor resides in the outdoor unit. Several common problems that can develop with a compressor are issues with the capacitors, frayed or corroded wiring, refrigerant leaks, and motor issues. The compressor is responsible for pressurizing the refrigerant in the system, so if something is wrong with your compressor, your air conditioner will most likely develop issues with cooling.
Problems with the Indoor Blowers
The each indoor blower contains a set of evaporator coils, an air filter and a fan. Each of these components can develop issues that require the help of a trained professional.
As you can see, ductless cooling repair in Riverdale isn’t that different from traditional AC repair, but this doesn’t mean you should attempt repairs yourself.
