If you’re using a ductless mini-split to keep your home cool this summer, you should make sure that it receives professional maintenance at some point. Yes, even if you had it serviced less than a year ago. Ductless systems require maintenance twice as often as other systems, around twice a year. Read on to find out why that is, and when you should schedule it.
The point of maintenance in general is to be preventive, to catch problems before they have the chance to progress too far. Most HVAC problems don’t give off any sort of easily recognizable symptoms until they’re quite well developed, at which point it’s too late to stop the majority of the damage. By scheduling maintenance on a consistent basis, you can actually save yourself thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of the system.
Why Bi-Annual Maintenance?
For most HVAC systems, annual maintenance is enough to keep them in good operating condition. The maintenance is typically conducted right before the season that the system will be seeing the heaviest use. This ensures that the system is in the best possible shape to cope with the added stress of the season. Ductless systems, however, act as both heating and cooling systems. They are used all year round, and are typically placed under twice as much stress as other climate control systems. This is why it is so important that they receive maintenance at least twice a year, once in spring/summer and once in fall/winter. Otherwise, they will not be properly protected from the effects of wear and tear. Make sure to schedule preventive maintenance for your ductless system this summer, if you haven’t already.
