Here are some of the most common reasons that ductless mini splits need repair:
Fan in the Outside Condensing Unit Stops Running
Capacitors are located inside air conditioning systems. “Start”capacitors send voltage to the motors that drive the fans and the compressor to start them operating. “Run” capacitors, send voltage at regular intervals to maintain motor operation. Capacitors are sensitive to high heat levels, so during very hot summers, excessive and prolonged heat can shorten a capacitor’s lifespan.
Refrigerant leakage is a problem that can occur in mini split or traditional whole home HVAC systems. Refrigerant is circulated between the indoor and outdoor units through insulated refrigerant lines. These lines can become damaged by outside weathering, human contact or holes from animal infestation. Diagnosing refrigerant leaks can require various testing methods that should only be performed by highly trained technicians, such as our factory trained and certified service techs.
Other common reasons for ductless mini split repair and service include problems with indoor air handler remote controls; Problems with power supplies; and water leaks due to condensate issues.
