Bowie, MD Ductless Mini-Split Repair Service

Maryland’s Trusted Ductless Mini-Split Company

Ductless systems are a rapidly growing part of Maryland’s HVAC marketplace. With some systems achieving up to a 30 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), ductless mini-split heating and cooling units are some of the most efficient products on the market. Couple that with the ability to turn off the system when not in use, and homeowners are seeing operating costs at pennies per dollar to that of conventional ducted HVAC units.

At Grove Heating and Cooling, we offer Mitsubishi mini-split systems that deliver efficient, zoned heating and cooling without the need for ductwork. Browse the systems we offer and see how these cooling and heating solutions provide you with comfort all year long in your Bowie, MD, home. Give us a call today!

How Do Ductless Systems Work?

Ductless mini-splits consist of a heat pump or air conditioner and individual air handling units. Systems with air conditioners offer cooling only, while heat pump systems offer both heating and cooling.

The biggest difference between ductless HVAC systems and conventional heating and cooling is that mini-splits do not use ductwork. Instead of ductwork, each room in your home – or “zone” – that you want heated or cooled is outfitted with its own air handler. The air handling unit is installed on the wall or within the ceiling and is connected to the heat pump or air conditioner installed outside through piping called a line set. The line set runs through a small hall in the exterior wall of each area or room, and the air handler blows heated or cooled air directly into that space.

Benefits of Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems

There are several benefits to choosing a ductless heating and cooling system for your home. Some of these reasons, include:

  • Improved indoor air quality because no ducts are present to spread contaminants such as dust and dirt, which can occur if you forget to change the furnace filter or there’s a leak in the ductwork.
  • Flexible installation, so choosing ductless mini-splits in homes without ducts, in garages and in new additions makes sense.
  • Reducing energy costs. Mini-splits can reduce cooling costs by up to 20 percent and cut heating costs in half compared to a traditional air conditioning system.
  • Ability to control zones independently, which can lower carbon emissions and improve sustainability.
  • No loud noises that can occur from leaky air conditioning ducts.

Ductless Mini-Splits Allow for Zoned Heating and Cooling

One of the biggest advantages of a ductless system is the ability to deliver zoned heating and cooling, which conventional heating and air conditioning systems can’t do unless they have an additional zoning system. Ductless mini-splits allow you to heat or cool based on everyone in your home’s own unique temperature needs .

A conventional system delivers heating and cooling to keep the home at the same temperature, which is rarely needed because each “zone” in your home has different needs. Ductless mini-splits allow each zone to operate without affecting other areas. If an area is unoccupied, dial back heating and cooling use to save energy without impacting areas that are occupied. If one family member likes to sleep in a warm room while another likes it a bit chilly, each person is able to achieve their ideal comfort levels without making the other too hot or too cold.

Common Ductless Mini-Split Repairs

Ductless mini-splits are very efficient and rarely break down. However, just like other heating and air conditioning equipment, they occasionally need repairs. Trust Grove for any repair service for your ductless mini-split. A few signs that your system may need inspected by the heating and cooling experts at Grove Heating and Cooling, include:

  • Strange noises: Any unusual noises should be checked out immediately. A grinding noise, for example, could indicate worn bearings in the air handler that could cause the motor to overheat.
  • High energy bills: If your ductless mini-split system is reaching the end of its useful life, you may notice high energy bills. This could be a sign that the unit is wearing down from old age, and there may be a broken part or a clogged air filter.
  • Ice forming on the outdoor condenser: A restriction in airflow causes the evaporator coils to freeze over. Airflow restrictions are caused by several reasons, including a clogged air filter or a refrigerant leak.
