Common Ductless Heating System Repairs

    Ductless heating and cooling systems have started to make the leap from the commercial world—where they have long been popular in businesses such as restaurants—over to the residential world. Ductless mini split heat pumps give homeowners the advantages of a heat pump (dual action heating and cooling, efficient performance) without the need for space-consuming and dust-collecting ductwork.

    Just because these systems don’t require ducts doesn’t mean they won’t sometimes require repairs. You no longer need to worry about ductwork breaks, but there are still some issues you can encounter with your ductless cooling and heating in Atlanta, GA that will call for the work of professionals to remedy. Call Comfort Zone Heating & Air, any time of the day or night, for the repair work for your ductless system that will get it back to work.

    Some ductless mini split heat pump repairs

    • Sealing refrigerant leaks from broken lines: Ductless heat pumps use multiple refrigerant lines that run from the outdoor unit to the individual blowers mounted on the walls throughout your home. These lines can suffer damage and begin leaking refrigerant, and this will lead to icing along the outdoor coil during heating. Repair technicians can fix the broken lines and recharge the refrigerant to its proper level.
    • Re-attaching blower units to the wall: The multiple blower units inside your house must be well-mounted to the wall with power and refrigerant lines running out the back. Blower units can come loose from their wall chassis (especially if they received amateur installation) and cause problems like leaking refrigerant and water condensation getting into a gap between the unit and the wall. Make sure you have professionals properly seal the unit back to the wall.
    • Cleaning the coils: Dirty coils in either the outdoor unit or in the indoor blower units will cause the heat pump to encounter problems with absorbing and releasing heat, leading to issues with icing and a decrease in heating power. Professionals will need to remove the coils in order to properly clean them.
