When a ductless AC suddenly develops cooling problems, your home won’t be as comfortable. Fixing inefficient cooling issues in an HVAC system requires a licensed professional. Here are a few reasons why your ductless AC has developed cooling problems in your Carlisle, PA, home.
Dirty air filters hinder an AC’s functionality. Dander and debris in the AC air filters interfere with air circulation within the household. Moreover, dirt buildup causes the ductless AC components to exert more force to cool your home.
Additionally, clogs along the condensate lines prevent efficient air conditioning. Usually, ductless AC systems feature longer condensate lines than ducted AC systems. As a result, ductless HVAC systems are more prone to blockage.
Ensure you check your AC’s air filters monthly. In addition, a ductless AC maintenance plan can help you ensure clean refrigerant and condensate lines.
Low Refrigerant Levels
Failure to notice refrigerant leaks is one of the most obvious causes of poor AC functionality. Failure to perform routine AC inspections keeps these leads hidden and undetected for months.
The refrigerant carries away excessive heat from your indoor air. Typically, the ductless AC system recycles the refrigerant compound during normal operations. Failure to detect a leak in your system means that the residual refrigerant levels are inadequate to sustain your home’s air conditioning.
Evaporator Coil Issues
Issues within a ductless AC system’s evaporator coil may also result in a gradual breakdown. The evaporator coils absorb hot hair from the indoor temperature, allowing proper cool-air circulation. Unfortunately, frozen evaporator coils cannot absorb heat from your home.
Some of the apparent causes of frozen coils include short cycling, dirty filters, and low refrigerant levels. Talk to an HVAC specialist if you notice any water puddles along with your ductless air conditioners.
