The U.S. Department of Energy recommends ductless air conditioning systems as an energy-efficient solution for homes and businesses in Durham, North Carolina, and across the country. While ductless systems are extremely reliable, they may need repairs and maintenance from time to time. Here are some of the most common issues affecting ductless air conditioners in our area.
Air Handler Problems
Ductless systems rely on air handlers to move cool air into your indoor spaces. If these systems break down, they can fail to provide adequate cooling for your Durham home or business. These air conditioning issues can arise for a number of reasons:
- Motor failures that prevent the air handler from operating normally
- Leaks in the condensate line
- Breaks in the power line
Working with a company that specializes in repair and installation of ductless air conditioner systems is usually the best way to resolve these issues quickly and in a cost-effective way.
Loss of Refrigerant
Like other types of air conditioning systems, ductless AC systems depend on chemical refrigerant to keep things cool inside your home or business. Leaks in the refrigerant lines or the outside compressor unit can reduce the cooling power of your ductless systems and will require repair services from a trusted local contractor.
Lack of Maintenance
ENERGY STAR cites regular maintenance of air conditioning systems as one of the best ways to keep them running smoothly. Regular maintenance visits can keep your ductless AC system in tip-top condition and can ensure the lowest energy expenditures for these advanced cooling systems.
