When the winter season hits Corpus Christi, TX, you need to have a reliable heating source. Ductless mini-split systems are great for providing adequate heat for any room in your home. Like any machines, though, they can experience issues. Read on to learn how to troubleshoot your ductless mini-split system so that you can get your heating up and running quickly.
Clean Your Air Filter
If your ductless mini-split system is not producing an adequate amount of heat in the wintertime, it could be due to a dirty air filter. When you pop open the cover for the indoor wall unit, you’ll easily spot the filter. Run it through water and ensure that it’s completely dry before reinstalling it.
Clear Around the Condenser Unit
When you’re not getting enough warm air, it could be due to the state of the area around your outdoor condenser unit. Your unit needs to have at least two feet of space around it to allow air to flow freely through it. If there are leaves and other debris stuck up against your condenser unit, it’s best to remove them.
Reposition Your Remote
Many ductless mini-split systems work with a remote that has a built-in thermometer. If your remote is directly in front of the path of your ductless system, it’s likely going to heat up faster than the rest of your room. It’s best to have the remote in a position that’s further away from the unit and not in its direct path so that it doesn’t prematurely heat up.
Refrigerant is a must-have substance for any heat transfer to happen inside of your system. When your refrigerant level gets too low, your heating system may not be able to keep up with your demand. You’ll need to call in one of our professionals to recharge your refrigerant level.
