Some of the most common repairs that ductless mini splits need include fixing water leaks behind air handlers, repairing or replacing broken air handlers, and maintaining refrigerant leaks. If your system is experiencing one of these issues, the first sign you will likely notice is that you are unable to experience the temperature control that your system should offer. Other signs you might notice that indicate a faulty ductless mini split include:
- Unresponsive ductless air conditioner controls
If your mini split does not respond when you turn it off and on or use the controls, you might be having an electrical issue or we might need to replace the reversing valve.
- Unusually high electric bills
An average ductless mini split lasts between 12 and 15 years, and the systems naturally lose efficiency as they age. However, if your system is new and is still not operating efficiently, it could be due to faulty equipment, a clogged air filter, faulty components, or short cycling.
- Reduction in cooling output
If there is a lack of cool air in your home, despite having a ductless mini split, it might be due to a refrigerant leak. If a refrigerant has drained out of a system, the air handler will operate as a fan, which is not ideal. Refrigerant leaks usually occur over time and result in a gradual decrease in cooling capacity, so it might take a bit longer to notice an issue like this. Once you do, the team at Epic Electrical Enterprise will be here for you.
- Grinding noises
If you are hearing grinding noises, it might mean that the oiled bearings used to reduce motor friction are damaged or worn. It is important not to ignore this issue because avoiding maintenance could mean that the air handler motor overheats and burns out.
- Ice formation
If you have reduced air flow in your unit, the evaporator coils can often freeze. This can be due to a variety of issues, including a clogged air filter, a broken thermostat, a broken fan, a refrigerant leak, or a dirty coil. This is another issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Otherwise, the weight of the ice can damage the cooling coil, which will lead to a coil replacement down the line.
