Ways to Keep Your Ductless HVAC System Running Smoothly

Having a ductless system gives you a variety of heating and cooling solutions. With this type of heating and cooling system, you have access to different advanced features that allow you to efficiently and effectively heat and cool your home. Use these three tips to keep your ductless HVAC system in Mount Vernon, TX, running smoothly:

Maximize Airflow

Maximizing your unit’s airflow capability requires you to regularly check and maintain the air filter. You should also wipe the evaporator coils and ensure debris isn’t obstructing the unit’s airflow (if your unit is outside). You should have these three checks performed at least once per month to ensure your system continues to be as efficient as possible.

Clear Drainage

When your ductless HVAC system is in “cool mode,” you’ll notice an accumulation of water around the evaporator coils. This accumulation of water is condensation that drains using a condensate suction tube.

When the weather is cool, you need to regularly check the unit to ensure the water is draining properly. If you don’t notice any condensation around the evaporator coils, contact the professional service technician immediately. You should never attempt to make any repairs to your unit, regardless of how simple of a fix that it may seem.

Controlling the Temperature

Another perk of ductless systems is they’re easy to operate. These units have “auto” modes that allow you to control the temperature and fan settings. If at any time these controls become unresponsive after you reset the system, you need the expertise of professional HVAC service technicians.
