Common Ductless AC Problems

Here are some of the more common problems our technicians see with ductless AC systems:

Compressor Issues

As with a traditional air conditioning system, the compressor for your ductless air conditioner resides in the outdoor cabinet with the condenser and condenser fan. The compressor pressurizes the refrigerant in your AC system, so when the compressor isn’t working correctly, you are likely to see warm air blowing from your indoor blower instead of cool air. Compressors are complex and contain refrigerant, so it’s required that a person with training and the certification to handle refrigerant perform all work.

Problems with the Indoor Blower

Each indoor blower of a ductless cooling system contains a fan, a set of coils and a small air filter. Should anything malfunction with any of these components, the operation of the blower can be affected.

Problems with the Refrigerant or Condensate Drain Line

The indoor blowers of a ductless system connect to the outdoor unit via a conduit through an exterior wall that contains a power cord, a refrigerant line and a condensate drain line. Because the condensate and refrigerant lines can be rather long, they can sometimes be more prone to developing leaks or clogging.

Bi-annual maintenance can help prevent these issues from developing, but if you are experiencing problems with your ductless cooling system in Trinity, FL, don’t hesitate to call us for repair!
