Check filters and clean or replace as necessary. We recommend that you clean or replace your filters on a monthly basis. When we arrive for routine maintenance, we will also inspect your filter to make sure it has been changed out properly.
Clean corresponding indoor air quality equipment. The equipment will vary depending on the make or model of your ductless mini split. For example, some models feature negative ion technology for greater air purification. It is essential to ensure that these components are regularly cleaned and well maintained.
Clean evaporator coils. This is particularly important because you do not want the condensate line to become blocked. Typically we use a spray specially designed for coil cleaning. To further help prevent mold or mildew growth in the unit, we can apply an antimicrobial to the evaporator coil. This is perfectly safe for you and your family, while tough on bacteria!
Examine and clean outdoor condensing unit. This also includes inspecting refrigerant lines and pipe insulation.
Ensure general fitness of unit. We will check to see that your indoor unit is mounted properly, as well as make sure the blower wheel and assembly are properly balanced.
Convenient, Efficient Air Conditioning
What makes a ductless mini split more convenient compared to central air systems and other space conditioning units is the relative ease of installation and reduced risk of energy loss. While duct systems can contribute to 30% of energy loss, ductless systems avoid this issue and instead allow you to enjoy greater energy efficiency through zoned temperature control.
