Ductless split systems give Sacramento homeowners a great option for older homes that don’t use ductwork, for mobile homes, and for outbuildings and other spaces where a traditional central air conditioner installation would not be practical. And once you’ve gotten a ductless air conditioning installation, it will need maintenance or even the occasional repair. For that, turn to the pros at Ace Plumbing Heating and Air Conditioning.
Signs of Ductless AC Problems
Just like any other HVAC system, a ductless split system can develop problems over time. An air conditioning tune-up can help, but some problems will require prompt repair. Either way, don’t wait. Call us!
1. Climbing Utility Bills
Energy isn’t getting any cheaper. But if your spending on electricity doesn’t quite match those rate increases, it’s often a sign of lost efficiency or a need for repairs.
2. Unusual Sounds
Ductless AC systems have characteristic sounds as they run through the cooling cycle. If your system sounds different than it used to, give us a call.
3. Thermostat Problems
Your ductless system may be just fine, but if your thermostat isn’t working properly that can lead to problems of its own, from a failure to start to “short cycling,” where your system runs for short periods. Since this causes premature wear, it should not be neglected. The good thing is that a new smart thermostat gives you a finer degree of control and more efficient operation.
4. Air Quality Issues
Your ductless system filters the air as it cools, but indoor air quality problems can still present themselves even with diligent filter replacement. If you notice your allergies or asthma act up indoors, we can troubleshoot the problem and eliminate it at the source.
5. Other Ductless AC Problems
Of course, what we’ve listed so far is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. From an air conditioner blowing warm air to individual rooms that are either too cool or that don’t cool at all, there’s plenty to keep you on your toes. Fortunately for you, we’re experienced with all of it.
Average Ductless AC Lifespan
A ductless air conditioner lasts 15 to 20 years with proper maintenance. So it’s vital that you do not skimp on the quality of the equipment, that it’s sized properly, and that you maintain it properly. Don’t forget to call us for home cooling tune-ups!
Should I Repair or Replace My Ductless Air Conditioner?
Age is only one reason to replace a ductless air conditioning system. If you notice that repair bills are coming more frequently, or that the repairs themselves are getting more expensive, it can be worthwhile to consider a replacement. You may also need to revisit your system configuration if you’re adding to your home. The good news is that ductless systems are a bit more flexible and that newer systems may qualify for energy efficiency rebates that offset costs.
