It’s possible your unit isn’t cooling effectively, and you may be wondering why. If so, keep reading to discover three of the top reasons why your ductless mini-split unit might not be functioning as its most effective.
1. Debris and Dirt Buildup in the Outdoor Unit
Dirt and dust can inhibit airflow and harm your mini-split’s outdoor unit’s ability to cool the air. This particular issue often arises due to poor maintenance. To avoid it, you need to look for an expert to provide maintenance and clean your unit.
If you notice signs of clogs in your ductless mini-split system, don’t try to remedy it yourself. Leave the job to an expert.
2. Ductless Mini-Split Power Problems
Sometimes, your unit may not function properly because of a power issue. For instance, there may be an issue with the wires or the electrical plug-in.
Again, don’t try to open the equipment to look for any signs of damage or to fix it. Always leave electrical issues to an expert for your personal safety.
3. Ductless Mini-Split Refrigerant Leaks
Your mini-split unit has a chemical compound known as the refrigerant that absorbs the heat in your house to keep it cool. The compound circulates between the outdoor and indoor unit cables, which may eventually wear, causing it to leak.
As a result of the leaks, your unit may malfunction and become ineffective at cooling your home. Whether you suspect this to be your problem, you should contact a professional.
