Mini-Split Maintenance Services

A mini-split system offers an efficient way to keep your home comfortable throughout the year.

However, keeping your system in the best possible shapes requires staying on top of maintenance. By understanding how to perform basic upkeep tasks, and coordinating with professionals for more advanced tasks, you’ll optimize the lifespan of your mini-split and save a lot of money in the long run.

What You Need to Know About Maintaining a Mini-Split System

A mini-split HVAC system consists of outdoor equipment which connects to individual units (usually wall-mounted) in your home.

Like any HVAC unit, it has many different components. Thus, it can break down over time. By staying on top of maintenance, you’ll keep this from happening often. While you should contact a professional to develop a full maintenance schedule, the following are some basic tasks you may be able to address on your own:

Replace Filters

Before performing any maintenance, shut down all power to the system first. This should apply for any maintenance task.

One of the most essential and basic steps you can take to keep your system working properly is to replace the filters.

This should be done at least once every three months. When filters get clogged, the system has to use more energy to cool or warm your home. This results in high energy bills and reduces the unit’s potential lifespan. Refer to the owner’s manual to find out how to remove your filters, and what to learn what type you should replace them with.

Clean Outdoor Equipment Weekly

When cleaning your home, make sure you also clean the outdoor equipment for your ductless mini-split.

This equipment is exposed to a lot of potential contaminants every day. If they get inside the unit, they can damage important components. Dusting the equipment thoroughly once a week helps prevent this.

Clean the Condenser & Coil

With the power shut off, access the condenser and coil of your system (the owner’s manual will explain how) and gently rinse and dust them at least once a month. Be gentle cleaning these components, otherwise you might damage them.

It’s also important that they’re completely dry before you reinstall them and turn the system back on.

Why Inspections Are Essential for Ductless Mini-Splits

Again, your mini-split unit is a complicated machine.

Unless you’re thoroughly familiar with the technology, there’s a good chance you may overlook some warning signs of a problem during your maintenance routine.

That’s why it’s a good idea to schedule inspections with a professional at least once a year. They’ll take a closer look at the system, making sure it’s still in good working order.

They’ll also help you develop an effective upkeep plan.
