How to Maintain a Ductless Mini-Split

Ductless mini-split systems have become a popular choice for many homeowners and businesses in recent years. They are efficient, quiet, and can help save on energy costs. However, like all HVAC systems, ductless mini-splits need to be properly maintained in order to function at their best.

In this blog, we will describe the necessary maintenance tasks for ductless mini-split systems.

Changing the Filter

One of the most important maintenance tasks for ductless mini-splits is changing the filter. Most filters will need to be changed every few months, but it is important to check your specific model's instructions. A dirty filter can restrict airflow and cause the system to work harder than necessary, which can lead to higher energy bills and shorten the lifespan of the unit.

Cleaning the Unit

Another important task is to clean the actual unit, both inside and out. For the outdoor unit, you will want to remove any debris or leaves that have accumulated. It is also a good idea to hose down the unit every few months to remove any dirt or dust build-up.

For the indoor unit, you should dust it regularly and wipe down any visible dirt or fingerprints. It is important to avoid using harsh chemicals, as they can damage the unit.

Professional Tune-Ups

In addition to the tasks you can do yourself, it is also a good idea to have a professional HVAC technician perform a tune-up on your ductless mini-split system every year. This will help to ensure that the unit is running efficiently and catch any potential problems before they become serious.

By following these simple maintenance tasks, you can help to keep your ductless mini-split system running smoothly for many years to come.
