Ductless Heating Systems –
Installation, Repair and Maintenance Services
A ductless heating system is most often used in a situation where baseboard heating would be considered, such as in a new addition to a house or an enclosed porch. Ductless units are mounted, requiring only a very small hole drilled into the wall. They are also very efficient.
Ductless Heating Installation
Installing a traditional, ducted system may not only take several weeks, it may also disrupt your daily activities in the home. Ductless systems, on the other hand, are far less invasive to install, and depending upon the number of indoor and outdoor units required, can be up and running in as little as one day.
Multi-split systems allow homeowners to have “zones” in their home, meaning that they no longer have to heat rooms that aren’t in use.
Ductless Heating Maintenance and Repair
Ductless air conditioners are one of the most efficient and cost-effective cooling options, and you want to make sure that you keep yours in the best shape possible. While your ductless heating and cooling system may run so effortlessly that you could easily forget about the mechanism keeping your home comfortable, not taking care of your ductless air conditioner could shorten its life and greatly reduce its functioning. There most definitely are maintenance issues that will best be left to a professional. Yet, there are a number of steps that you can take on your own to increase the functionality and lifespan of your system, such as the following:
- Keep the Outside Clean:
One of these easiest things you can do to keep your system in the best shape is to make sure that it is free from dust and debris. Dust and debris can make their way into the unit and start to affect the moving parts, reducing the life of the unit and potentially leading to
- Give it Some Space:
While ductless air conditioners require less space than your average air conditioning system, it does the system no good to have it cramped in a corner. Give it enough space to have an unobstructed air flow.
- Keep the Inside Clean: You’re going to need to clean more than just the outside of the unit to ensure its optimal performance. Before completing the more extensive cleaning of the interior of the unit, you want to make sure that all the components are off. There are moving parts in the unit and you risk damaging them and hurting yourself if you don’t turn them off. The Important components to clean are the coil, condenser, pipes, and filter.
- Check for Ice or Snow:
When used for heating, ductless air conditioners can collect ice and snow, which can inhibit their ability to run efficiently. Regularly check the outside of your machinery for accumulation, and if you spot any, gently remove it from the unit.
