3 Reasons Your Ductless Mini-Split Isn’t Blowing Cold Air
Outdoor temperatures here in Fountain Hills are on the rise. With April and May averages usually hovering in the 80s to mid 90s, no one wants to be without the comfort of AC.
If you’re experiencing challenges with your ductless mini-split, there are several reasons why it isn’t blowing cold air, such as:
- Refrigerant is a vital component of the air conditioning process. If there is too little refrigerant in the system, the mini-split won’t be able to cool the air effectively. Some of the most common reasons for low refrigerant levels include leaks and improper installation. If you suspect that your mini-split is low on refrigerant, you should contact Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling for a complete diagnosis and mini-split repair.
- Every HVAC system, even ductless mini-splits, require an air filter to remove dirt, dust and other debris from the air before it’s cooled and circulated throughout your home. If you have a dirty air filter, airflow can be reduced, leading to the mini-split not blowing cold air. Checking and changing the air filter regularly can prevent this problem from occurring.
- The compressor of the ductless mini-split is the heart of the system. It compresses the refrigerant and pumps it through the system to cool the air. If the compressor is malfunctioning, it can prevent the system from blowing cold air. Common reasons for compressor failure include overheating, electrical issues and the wear and tear with normal use. A professionally trained Shadrach HVAC technician can diagnose and repair compressor issues.
In summary, your ductless mini-split may not be blowing cold air due to insufficient refrigerant, a dirty air filter or a malfunctioning compressor. Regularly scheduled maintenance helps ensure your mini-split is ready when you need it and likely avoid cooling challenges from occurring in the first place.
