Star Heating and Cooling
Being without a properly functioning HVAC system is inconvenient and uncomfortable, to say the least, and can even lead to a dangerous situation on the hottest and coldest days of the year. Although ductless mini splits are efficient and reliable ways to heat or cool a room or area of your home, like all HVAC equipment, they can break down and might occasionally require repairs.
If your ductless mini split HVAC system is exhibiting issues such as odd noises or a reduction in cooling output, contact the NATE-certified technicians at Star Heating & Cooling. Our technicians have the know-how and expertise to repair all makes and models of ductless mini splits. Contact our team to schedule an appointment for ductless mini split repair in Fishers, IN and the surrounding Central Indiana area.
Ductless mini split systems are often used to provide cooling in areas of your home that are difficult to keep comfortable, such as the garage, the bonus room above the garage, a basement, or a new home addition. If your ductless system is malfunctioning, it can cause those areas of your home to suffer from serious comfort issues. Some of the biggest benefits of repairing your mini split system include:
No one wants to pay for a new HVAC system prematurely. Your ductless mini split can last up to 20 years if timely repairs and regular maintenance are performed. Extend the lifespan of your ductless unit by calling for repairs at the first sign of trouble.
Ductless mini splits, like all HVAC equipment, run less efficiently when they’re in need of repair. This means they run longer cycles to reach the desired temperature, causing your energy bills to rise. Keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket by contacting Star for ductless mini split repair service.
Unfortunately, issues with your ductless system never go away on their own; they only get worse the longer they go unaddressed. Save yourself from a bigger, more expensive repair by having the unit repaired now. Contact Star today for ductless repair services throughout Central Indiana.
Although HVAC systems can break down seemingly out of nowhere, many systems can continue to run even after issues develop. Look out for the following signs that indicate your ductless mini split is in need of repair service:
If your monthly energy bills have suddenly risen without any corresponding weather event such as a heat wave or cold spell, it could mean there’s an issue that’s affecting its performance that needs to be addressed. It could be something as simple as a clogged air filter, or something more serious such as a failing part. If your unit is over 15 years old, it may be time to consider replacement options.
Aside from the sound of your ductless unit starting or stopping a cycle, they are relatively quiet and shouldn’t make any jarring noises. Banging or grinding noises, for example, can signal a broken or loose part, or worn-out motor bearings.
Frozen evaporator coils are a serious concern and can damage your HVAC system, as well as lead to insufficient airflow and a decrease in efficiency. Insufficient airflow caused by a clogged air filter, backed-up condensate drain, or dirty evaporator coil often causes this problem.
While low cooling power can often be the effect of an aging and inefficient system that may need to be replaced, a refrigerant leak can also cause this issue. Handling refrigerant is dangerous, so you should contact a certified heating and cooling company to make this repair.
The best way to keep your ductless mini split HVAC system humming along is with regular maintenance service. Your ductless mini split should be tuned up at least once per year and twice a year if it’s used for heating also.
