Common Issues With Your Mini Split System

You can take some time to look over your mini split wall units and outdoor unit to see if there are any problems. You can change out interior air filters, and check the refrigerant levels of your system. If you aren’t sure what to do to maintain your mini-split system, have a professional come to check out the units and provide the cleaning needed to keep your system running well. While you might be able to tell that the system needs to be cleaned, you may not have the tools you need to clean the system correctly.

There are some common problems that indicate your mini split needs to be repaired. A mini split that isn’t blowing cold air, has poor airflow, or won’t turn on at all may have a number of issues going on.

  • The system won’t turn on. If you can’t get your system to turn on, make sure that your circuit breaker box hasn’t been tripped. Check to make sure that the outdoor unit hasn’t been shut off. If you don’t see any signs of electrical issues, you’ll want to call for help from your HVAC company.
  • The airflow is poor. A common problem with weak airflow is that the air filter is clogged. It’s easy for dirt and dust to build up in the system, and your air filter probably has to be replaced.
  • The air isn’t cool enough. When you don’t have air that is cool enough coming out of your mini split system, this can be a problem with a refrigerant leak. Look at the outdoor unit to see if there is any ice building up on the machine. Anything that causes a restriction of airflow can also make it difficult for your mini split to produce cool air.

Take the time to learn more about your system. You may be able to learn how to clean your system, and take care of dirty air filters to solve some common problems. If you think there is a refrigerant leak, then it’s time to contact Grove Heating & Cooling to deal with the problem for you.

What If the Mini Split is Leaking Water?

When a mini split starts to leak water into your home, this can make a big mess quickly. If your filter is dirty, this can lead to the coil freezing. Once the ice melts, water will leak out of your unit.

The drain line can get blocked in your mini split, making it impossible for water to leave the unit through the drain. If this occurs, water will eventually leak into your home from the interior of the unit. Water gets into your unit as the mini split pulls humidity out of the air, turning it into condensation. Always make sure the drain line is clear, or the drain pan is in place if you have water coming into your home from the mini split.

Short Cycling and Your Mini Split System

Short cycling occurs when your system turns on to cool off your home, but turns off again before reaching the set temperature. Low refrigerant, electrical problems, or overheating can cause short cycling. Get help from a professional HVAC company if your system is turning on and off without cooling down your home.

If you notice a strange odor coming from your mini split, you may need to have the system thoroughly cleaned to determine what is going on. Don’t ignore a moldy odor, as this can lead to respiratory issues. Whenever you notice a problem with how your mini split is functioning, it’s time to get the repairs needed to keep it running well.

When to Call for a Professional Mini Split Repair

It is best to have your mini split air conditioning system serviced before you need to rely on it every day to keep your home cool. If you turn on your system, and you have any issues with staying comfortable, it’s time to call for a mini split repair. When your system gets properly maintained, a technician will be able to uncover any potential issues with your system before they cause problems. If your system is leaking, or you don’t have cool enough air, a technician will be able to determine what is going on and repair the problem.
