If you own a ductless system, then you know that it’s fully capable of keeping you and your family nice and cozy all year long…
But, just because you had your system looked at in the summer doesn’t mean that it’s ready to handle the chilly temperatures of winter. In fact, there are a number of common ductless repairs that we think you should be aware of—that way, you’ll know just what to do if you notice any of them (hint: you call us!)
Below, we have listed some of these common ductless repairs… all you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more (oh, and of course, remember to call our team when you need heating repair in Colorado Springs!)
Be On the Lookout For These Ductless Repairs
Here are a few repairs quite unique to ductless systems. Watch out for the following and make sure you contact us at the first sign of trouble:
Water Leaks Behind the Air Handler
Each of the wall-mounted air handlers in your home as a series of connections routed through a hole behind them. These connections include a power line, a refrigerant line, and a condensate line. The condensate line is responsible for removing water from the cooling process so that it doesn’t enter your home. However, these lines may leak, and when they do, water will begin to collect between the back of the air handler and the wall.
If this issue goes unnoticed for a lengthy period of time, your wall materials may weaken, causing the air handler to rip away from the wall and fall to the floor. Not only will you have to deal with the cost of replacing the air handler, but you will also have to pay to repair your damaged wall.
Broken Air Handlers
It is quite possible that one of the air handlers in your home will malfunction, which can be due to a number of issues. Fortunately, though, when this happens, it will not affect your comfort too much! You see, when one of the air handlers in your home stops working, either due to a mechanical issue or some sort of electrical failure, the remaining air handlers will continue to work just fine—just another benefit of a ductless system!
If one of your air handlers does break, be sure to call in a professional who can repair the faulty air handler for you.
Ductless systems are a little more vulnerable to refrigerant leaks simply because they’ve got more refrigerant lines running through them. A refrigerant leak can lead to all sorts of other issues, including reduced cooling and heating output and even a full-system breakdown if left ignored. Therefore, if you notice any signs of a refrigerant leak, like low cooling output, liquid leaking from the system, or a strange hissing sound, it is time to call in a professional for repairs.
