Whether you already have a ductless system or you’re thinking about getting one, you need to know how to maintain your unit. Maintenance is one of the most important parts of your HVAC system because it determines its efficiency and its longevity. According to research, it can even reduce energy costs by as much as forty percent.  Unfortunately, many people mistakenly believe that ductless systems don’t require any maintenance. They imagine that since the major aspect of ductwork is nonexistent, there must not be anything to maintain. However, this is a false notion.

If you need to know how to maintain your ductless system, it’s time for you to take a deeper look. It’s time to try a few of these top tips on how to keep your system running smoothly!

Take the time to dust it off

A little bit of attention can go a long way toward helping your ductless system stay clean. Many people forget to do the simple things like wiping down the outside of their vents. This can be an important step to keep dust and debris from blocking the airflow into the rest of the home. One simple wipe using a damp cloth or a safe cleaner should be enough to help your system run far more efficiently.

Change the air filters

Just like a central air conditioning unit, a ductless system needs its air filters changed on a regular basis. They are located just inside your unit, so be careful when attempting to remove them. When they become clogged with pet hair, dust, debris, and other pollutants, they also decrease the amount of airflow that is possible inside your home. You need to make sure that these are clean and changed regularly to boost the overall efficiency of the unit.

Clean the pipes

The pipes are the most important part of your ductless system because they transfer the new hot and cold air into the house. Over time, they can become clogged with dirt and debris. A clog that is left untouched for a long period of time prevents any fresh air from entering your home. This means that your ductless system isn’t able to work at all. It’s usually recommended to check the pipes just as often as you check the air filters on your unit.

Seek professional maintenance

These are all tasks that homeowners can do on their own throughout the course of the year. However, there are some maintenance tasks that should be left to the professionals to avoid damaging your machine. For example, a qualified HVAC technician can clean off your evaporator coil and remove any unwanted debris from the condensate line. It’s not advised for homeowners to take apart their machine in order to access these parts.

Maintaining your ductless system does still require a fair amount of maintenance throughout the year. Don’t forget how important it is to the efficiency and longevity of your unit to sign up for one of our professional air conditioner maintenance plans. At Classic Air Conditioning and Heating, we can help you keep your unit running cooler for longer!

We've been using Classic Air Conditioning & Heating Services for the past five years to include Installation of new units (flawless by the way), bi-annual check-ups that are scheduled and carried out without a second thought on my part, and in emergencies (backed up drain in the bathroom with a response time in under 24 hours to troubleshoot the problem). Their technicians are master's at their craft, personable, and cut to the chase on his service calls. I never feel like I'm being given the run around or a sales pitch with this company. Today, Mitchell Wesch went above and beyond walking us through what was happening and provided a multitude of options and expected timelines for future repairs. Once again, a great example of exemplary customer service. He was able to troubleshoot the problem with zero delay. We're ready for the Texas summer, and are already looking forward to the next scheduled service call. Thank you Classic Services for keeping our home healthy and happy.

Theresa did an amazing job! She informed me about everything she was doing and took extra pictures so I could have them for my record. She was quick but still answered all my questions. She definitely saved the day when my condensor froze over on the coldest day of the year, leaving my family in the cold. She was out at my house within the hour and had everything fixed in minutes.
