Signs You Need Ductless Mini-Split Maintenance

When you pay close enough attention, you may find that your ductless mini-split is calling for help. We recommend maintaining your ductless mini-split system at least twice a year (in spring and fall). However, you may need ductless mini-split maintenance sooner if you notice any of these signs:

  • Poor performance
  • Leaking fluids
  • High energy bills
  • Strange sounds
  • Ice on the outdoor unit

If any of these signs sound like you, call (864) 536-0887 today to schedule an appointment with South Carolina’s ductless mini-split maintenance experts.

Importance of Preventative Maintenance for Ductless Mini-Splits

Even if you’re working with a trustworthy heating and cooling company like Waldrop, repairs on your ductless mini-split can be stressful and expensive. Not to mention, breakdowns tend to happen at the most inconvenient times, don’t they? Thankfully, with just two maintenance visits a year, you can keep your ductless mini-split running at peak performance for up to 30 years and keep your energy bills in check, too.

Our Ductless Mini-Split Maintenance Services

To keep your home cozy (and your energy bills low!) all year, plan to maintain your ductless mini-split once every spring and again in the fall. Your ductless maintenance will include:

  • Cleaning/replacing the filter
  • Cleaning the evaporator coils and the condensing unit
  • Cleaning the pipes
  • Balancing the fan wheel and blower assembly
  • Inspecting the condensate drain

Frequently Asked Questions About Ductless Mini-Split Maintenance


The best way to prevent issues is to have regular maintenance performed by a professional HVAC company at least twice a year. Apart from that, you can perform some basic maintenance yourself to reduce problems and keep your ductless system running smoothly. This includes changing or cleaning the filter regularly, maintaining 4 to 5 feet of clearance around the outdoor unit, and visually inspecting it for leaks regularly.


In addition to their excellent cooling features and energy efficiency, ductless mini-splits can last much longer than a traditional cooling system. With proper maintenance, your ductless AC system can last for 20 to 30 years.


While the specific maintenance steps for your ductless AC system will depend on the manufacturer and model, every ductless mini-split system will need the following maintenance regularly:

  • Remove dust and debris by wiping the unit down with a cloth or gentle cleanser.
  • Clean the filter with a vacuum or with warm water and a mild detergent.
  • Ensure there’s enough space for airflow by keeping at least 4 feet of clearance from the unit.
  • Clean and inspect the outdoor unit by looking for general wear or leaks along the refrigerant lines and insulation wraps.
