If you’re using a ductless system to keep cool this summer, you should be more vigilant than usual for any problems that might crop up. The added stress that comes with increased usage makes it more likely for issues to occur with the system. The faster you get them repaired, the better off the system will be overall. Let’s take a look at some of the common symptoms of ductless problems you may run into this summer.
Refrigerant is the core of the ductless system. Ductless systems evaporate and condense refrigerant to move heat from one place to the other. The system does not consume refrigerant, but recycles it back and forth during operation. If a leak develops in the refrigerant line, it will drain the system of the fluid it needs to operate. This will cause a steady decline in output, followed by multiple malfunctions and an eventual breakdown. Call for repairs as soon as you notice liquid leaking from your ductless system.
Air Handler Issues
The air handler is the part of the system responsible for circulating air throughout the room during operation. In order to help the system run more smoothly, each air handler is equipped with a series of oiled bearings. The bearings in an air handler motor will wear down over time, causing the friction on the motor to increase. This produces a loud grinding sound. If you notice this sound coming from part of your ductless system, you should call a professional right away. It’s far easier and cheaper to replace the bearings in an air handler motor than to replace the entire motor.
