Myths about home performance proliferate quickly in today’s fast-paced communities, and the East Bay area is no exception. You may have heard some of the following statements from friends, family or coworkers, or on social media.
For homeowners in Oakland, El Cerrito, San Rafael, and surrounding areas who are looking to work towards true energy efficiency, it’s difficult to beat a ductless mini-split system. Mini-split heat pumps are effective not only for keeping your home warm in the winter, but cooler during the summertime, when it can get excessively hot outside. While mini-splits tend to come along with fewer issues than traditional heating and cooling systems, this is not to say that they’re problem-free. Fortunately, the team at Hassler can help to remedy issues with mini-split ductless systems in a quick and efficient manner.
Signs Your Ductless System Needs a Tune-Up
There are a few different types of issues that can sometimes pop up with mini-splits over time, all of which are important for homeowners with these types of heating and cooling systems to be aware of. With most mini splits, conditioned air moves around the home via registers that are mounted above doors or on the ceiling. If one of these registers isn’t working properly, it can create issues with your heating system.
Another sign it’s time for maintenance is when your indoor unit runs yet doesn’t blow hot (or cold) air. More often than not, this issue is related to a clogged filter, but it can sometimes be caused by a buildup that blocks the blower wheel. It could even be a burnt-out motor or control board. Regardless of what is causing problems with your mini-split heating and cooling system, the best way towards a solution is to work with a home performance specialist from Hassler.
