A ductless heating system is just what it sounds like: a system that relies on separate indoor air handler units placed strategically throughout your house connected to an outdoor unit instead of a single indoor unit that sends warm air everywhere via a system of ducts. Ductless heating offers many advantages, such as the ability to tailor the temperature for different parts of the house and even turn the heat off in rooms you aren’t using. Ductless heat pumps combine heating and air conditioning functions into a single system. That works very well for heating in Atlanta, since the system is at its most effective when temperatures stay above 40 degrees or so. Unfortunately, it can run into problems just like any other heating system, and when it does, you need a qualified repair service to handle it.
Here are some common ductless heating system repairs.
- Refrigerant leaks. Ductless heat pumps use refrigerant to absorb heat from the outside air and transfer it into your home. When the refrigerant leaks out, your heat pump don’t be able to heat effectively, and frost can form on the coils. You can’t just scrape off the ice: the leak needs to be sealed and refrigerant levels recharged to address the issue.
- Clogged lines. Clogged drain lines and a misaligned drain pan can both create condensate overflow in your heating unit. The overflow can end up damaging internal components if it’s not addressed.
- Motor issues. Ductless heating systems have fans to blow warm air into your home. When the fan motor runs into trouble – either because of an electrical overload or some kind of mechanical problem – the fan won’t blow and your air won’t get heated.
