Why Is It Important to Schedule Maintenance for Your Ductless AC?

Ductless air conditioners have become a very popular choice with homeowners, and for good reasons. They are easy to install, don’t require ductwork and can bring cool air to any room to which you add an indoor blower. Sometimes people mistakenly believe that because a ductless system is set up somewhat differently from a traditional ducted AC system that ductless AC’s in Holly Springs don’t need a tune-up. The truth is that ductless air conditioners operate in a very similar fashion to traditional split-system ACs, so your ductless air conditioning system should be scheduled for maintenance at least once a year. As we head toward spring, now is the ideal time to schedule maintenance for your AC, and the air conditioning experts at Ideal Services Heating & Cooling are ready to help!

Why Is Maintenance Important?

When an electro-mechanical system like an air conditioner isn’t maintained, the wear and tear of the previous season carries into the next one. Excess wear and tear can affect how components work, and even lead to malfunction and potential break down. Additionally, dirt and dust will accumulate season after season, and nothing gums up a system better than a heavy layer of combined dust and dirt. Maintenance is a full tune-up of your air conditioning system, from the outdoor unit to each and every blower. During a maintenance appointment, not only will your outdoor unit and each blower be cleaned, they’ll also be lubricated as needed, and if any components have shifted and need adjusting, the technician will handle this. Each blower has a filter, condensate line and a refrigerant line, so all these items will be checked, and the technician will also test the performance of the system and each blower. So what can you and your system gain from a routine maintenance appointment? Here are some of the benefits:

  • Better energy efficiency
  • Improved comfort
  • Prevention of potential repairs
  • Extend life of the equipment

Any work done to your ductless AC system should always be handled by an expert, so if you need to get your ductless AC system in Holly Springs a tune-up to be ready for this summer, call us today!
