Ductless HVAC systems have recently been growing in popularity as a viable option for homeowners. They’re extremely dependable and durable systems. However, if you decide on having one installed in your Hanover, PA, bear in mind that it could need repairs at some point. Here are a few of the most common problems that our technicians have seen with ductless HVAC systems.
Indoor Blower Problems
Every ductless HVAC system has an indoor blower containing a set of coils and a fan as well as a small air filter. If anything malfunctions with any one of those components, it can affect the blower’s operation. Our trained experts at Siegman Forced Air Systems are always ready to assist you with this and any other AC repair needs.
Just like with any traditional HVAC system, the compressor for a ductless one lives in an outdoor cabinet along with both the condenser and the condenser fan. Your compressor is responsible for pressurizing your AC system’s refrigerant. Therefore, when your compressor stops working correctly, warm air comes from your indoor blower rather than nice cool air.
Refrigerant and/or Condensate Drain Line Problems
Besides being quite complex, compressors contain refrigerant, which is why you need a trained and certified technician to make repairs. Indoor blowers are connected to the outdoor part of your system by a conduit that goes through an exterior wall. It contains a refrigerant line, a power cord and a condensate drain line, and since they’re long, they can sometimes develop clogs and leaks.
Having maintenance twice a year helps with preventing the above issues with your ductless HVAC system, and our maintenance agreements at Siegman Forced Air Systems can also help you save on utility bills. However, if you need repairs for your ductless HVAC system in Hanover, we’ll be happy to take care of those, too.
