A ductless HVAC system is a great way to heat and cool a space that a typical HVAC system can’t reach. However, if your ductless mini-split malfunctions, its major benefits aren’t much help. Here are tips for troubleshooting a malfunctioning ductless HVAC system in Eastman, GA:

Dead Batteries

To allow you to easily control the temperature, most ductless HVAC systems utilize a remote control in place of a thermostat. This remote control uses batteries to send a signal to the system to tell it to turn on. If the batteries in the remote control are dead, your system won’t turn on. As a result, it might seem to be malfunctioning.

Clogged Condensate Drain

Your ductless HVAC system removes both heat and humidity from the air during summer to help improve the comfort of a room. It relies on a condensate drain to eliminate the condensed water vapor. If a clog forms in the condensate drain, your ductless HVAC system will shut itself down to ensure that the excess moisture doesn’t find its way back into your system components.

Refrigerant Leak

Your ductless HVAC system relies on refrigerant to remove heat from the air in your home during the summer and draw heat into your home during the winter. If the line that carries the refrigerant develops a leak, this will affect your HVAC system’s operation whether you’re using it for heating or cooling.

Fortunately, fixing a leak in your system’s refrigerant line is a fairly quick and easy repair for a professional to perform. But you should never try to complete this task on your own.

Although they’re small, ductless systems are deceptively complex, so trying to troubleshoot advanced issues could be quite difficult. For expert troubleshooting and maintenance for all types of ductless systems, contact Pruett Air Conditioning.
