Frequently Asked Questions About Ductless Mini-Split Maintenance
How Can I Prevent Problems With My Ductless Mini-Split?
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.
How Long Will My Ductless AC System Last?
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.
What Kind of Maintenance Does My Ductless System Require?
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.
