3 Maintenance Tips for Your Ductless Air Conditioning
Ductless air conditioning can be a great way to keep your home, or specific parts of it, cool and comfortable in the hot Florida summer. A ductless air conditioner also called a mini-split system, is an ideal heating and air conditioning solution for a space that isn’t connected to a central heating or cooling system. The mini-split ductless system provides heating and cooling for a single zone with reliable comfort using one indoor unit, an outdoor unit and a remote control.
It is important to keep your ductless split system clean and well maintained so it works efficiently and effectively, ensuring a long lifespan for your investment. There are several maintenance steps that you can do regularly to maintain your ductless air conditioning.
Here Are 3 Tips to Help Maintain Your Ductless Air Conditioning
Filter: Keeping your ductless air conditioning system’s air filter clean is one of the most important ways you can keep it functioning properly. Just like your regular HVAC system, the air filter in a ductless system ensures that the air is clean when it goes into the air conditioner. If the filter gets dirty, it makes it harder for air intake to flow properly, thus making the air conditioner work harder and be less efficient. Cleaning the filter every two to four weeks can keep things running smoothly.
Dust: Clean the outside of your air conditioner gently to clear off dirt and dust that collects and can be pulled inside the system. The cleaner everything stays the more smoothly your ductless system will run.
Drain line: Make a note to clean the drain line once or twice in between your Maintenance visits.
Keep your system running properly with regular maintenance. If you have other problems, the trustworthy and knowledgeable staff at Air Hawk Heating and Cooling can help.
