Here Are Some Common Ductless System Issues

Temperatures are steadily increasing throughout New Mexico, and soon enough it will be time to turn on our air conditioners. Hopefully, you’ve already taken a moment to schedule your ductless cooling system maintenance appointment. It’s never too late if not!

Ductless cooling systems are extremely efficient and very durable as well. However, just like any other type of air conditioning equipment, they can run into issues. Lack of maintenance is one of the biggest reasons you would have problems with your ductless system, but not the only reason. Keep reading to discover some of the other most common ductless problems.

Refrigerant Leaks

Contrary to popular belief, refrigerant leaks from your ductless system are not normal. Your ductless unit is supplied with enough refrigerant upon installation to get it through its entire lifespan. So if you notice less cooling power, be sure to get your system inspected by a professional as soon as possible. Refrigerant leaks can cause considerable damage to the rest of the ductless system.

Improper Operation

Whenever you use your cooling system—ductless or not—you should ensure that you haven’t left any windows or doors cracked open. Even the tiniest draft can cause your ductless system to work harder than it should have to, which decreases its performing power and can cost you significantly more in the long run.

Inadequate Drainage

If condensation fails to properly drain, it can certainly cause problems within your air conditioning system. This is particularly true in humid climates where moist air is more likely to condense and collect on cooler surfaces. In order to prevent other drainage problems, your ductless system must also be installed level to the ground. The best way to ensure this is the case is by hiring a professional for all your ductless system service needs.
