Ductless air conditioning is an excellent cooling option in the summer and a great heating option in the winter. Ductless air conditioning systems are ideal for homes that don’t have existing duct systems, while providing very quiet and efficient air conditioning. Ductless air conditioning installation is also a very affordable option when compared to the thought of installing ductwork in your home. Apart from the weeks and even months of construction you’ll have to endure you’ll also have to pay for the equipment, materials and labour involved in installing ductwork in your old home.
Existing Ductless Air Conditioning
So, you’ve chosen ductless air conditioning installation and have had it running for a number of years now. Any of our Novel Care HVAC technicians will tell you that you’ve made an excellent choice. One thing that’s important to understand about your ductless air system is that it needs regular maintenance just like any other air conditioning system. As a homeowner there are 3 easy things you can do to ensure that your ductless air conditioning system runs well all year round, especially when you need it most.
- Ductless Air Filter: Ensuring that the air filter in your ductless air conditioner is always clean is one of the most important maintenance tasks you can do. The air filer ensures that the air that’s being brought in through the intake is clean, which flows through easily when it’s clean. A dirty filter will cause your system to work harder than it needs to, thereby reducing efficiency and lowering the effectiveness. Your ductless air conditioner air filter should be cleaned or replaced at least once per month.
- Clean The Exterior: It might not seem like a big deal, but cleaning the outside of your air conditioner is important. Gently wiping it with a damp cloth to remove the dirt and dust ensures that it won’t be sucked inside the unit, and also removes the possibility of impeding or damaging any mechanical or moving parts.
- Clean The Pipes: During peak usage it’s important to keep the pipes between the air conditioner and the compressor clean. This ensures that there is good air flow between the two units, so efficiency and functionality aren’t impacted.
Overall, it’s important to perform regular maintenance on your ductless air conditioners. These simple tasks are an easy way to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.
