Ductless Mini Split Repair in West Chester, OH

Why Is My Mini Split Not Getting Cold?

Lukewarm air during a heatwave is a homeowner’s nightmare. Here’s what might be hindering your ductless mini split’s cooling capacity:

  • Incorrect Temperature Setting: Double-check your thermostat settings. Ensure it’s set to “cool” mode and the desired cool temperature.
  • Blocked Airflow: Blocked air intake or outlet vents restrict proper air circulation. Check for furniture, curtains, or debris obstructing airflow.
  • Dirty Indoor Unit: Dust and grime buildup on the indoor unit’s coil reduces its ability to absorb heat. Regular cleaning by a professional is crucial.
  • Frozen Coils: Icy buildup on the indoor unit’s evaporator coil can impede airflow. This typically occurs due to dirty air filters, low refrigerant levels, or incorrect system settings. Turn the system off and allow the ice to melt naturally. If freezing persists, contact a professional.
  • Sensor Issues: Faulty temperature sensors might send inaccurate readings to the unit, preventing it from achieving the desired coolness. A technician can evaluate and replace faulty sensors if necessary.
  • Improper System Sizing: An undersized mini split might struggle to cool your entire space efficiently. Consult an HVAC professional to assess your needs, as a new ductless mini split installation may be necessary to eliminate this problem.

Don’t sweat through another day without the proper cooling you deserve. Robinson Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc.’s technicians get to the bottom of your cooling issues and perform the right repairs to restore your comfort.

Don’t Let These Common Issues Disrupt Your Comfort

Ductless mini-split systems are known for their reliability, but even the best machines can encounter occasional problems. Beyond issues that reduce cooling performance, there are other common malfunctions you may encounter over the lifetime of your ductless mini split system. Robinson Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. tackles them all, including:

Water Leaks

A clogged condensate drain line can cause water to back up and leak from your indoor unit. Our technicians effectively clear the clog and ensure proper drainage to keep your ductless mini split working efficiently and prevent water damage.

Unusual Noises

Strange noises like grinding, banging, or screeching can indicate loose parts, failing fan motors, or low refrigerant levels. We identify the source of the noise and implement the necessary repairs to eliminate any noise issues.

Uneven Airflow

Weak or uneven airflow throughout your home could be caused by dirty air filters, blocked vents, or malfunctioning fan blades. Our team thoroughly cleans your system, repairs defective fans, and ensures optimal airflow.

Loss of Functionality

Sometimes, your system simply won’t turn on or respond to commands. This could be due to a power issue, faulty thermostat, or internal control board problem. Our technicians troubleshoot the cause and get your system back up and running.

Should I Upgrade My Ductless System?

While repairs can often extend the life of your system, there are situations where replacing it might be the more cost-effective option. Most ductless mini splits have a lifespan of 10-15 years. If your system is approaching this age and experiencing frequent breakdowns, a newer, more efficient model might be a wise investment.

Are you encountering constant repair needs? The cost of repeated repairs can quickly surpass the investment in a new system, which would come with a fresh warranty and improved efficiency.

At Robinson Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc., we understand the complexities of making this decision. Our experienced technicians provide a thorough inspection of your existing system and discuss your options with transparency. We offer ductless mini split installation services for a seamless transition to a new system if that’s the best course of action.
