Do Mini-Splits Need Maintenance?
Many home and business owners in the Fort Wayne, Decatur, Angola and Indianapolis, Indiana area know mini-split systems are economical and versatile heating solutions. They love its ability to provide both heating and cooling, eliminating the need for separate systems. Additionally, mini-splits are perfect for providing personalized comfort based on the room’s occupants. Mini-splits provide indoor comfort only when the space is occupied, making them great energy savers. But did you know that mini splits do require some maintenance over time?
Masters Heating & Cooling has been going the distance for Northeastern Indiana since 1980 and offers a wide range of heating solutions, including mini-split systems to keep you comfortable all year long.
Wherever you need added home comfort and additional ductwork isn’t an option, a mini-split system could be the perfect solution. They can be easily retrofitted to remodeled spaces, including basements, attics and garages.
The mini-split has an air filter to keep dust and dirt from getting into the unit and spreading throughout the indoor environment. One difference between mini-splits and other heating sources is that dirty filters are typically discarded and replaced, while mini-split filters are rinsed well in warm water, lightly air dried and then repositioned inside the indoor air handler.
The indoor air handler on a mini-split also has other components that need serviced, including the thermostat, which ensures communication with the system is functioning correctly. Depending on the number of indoor units, there’s at least one outdoor unit that needs regular maintenance, too.
The point is, never let anyone convince you that mini-split maintenance isn’t necessary. Though mini-splits may differ from conventional furnaces and air conditioning units in specific ways, having a professionally trained HVAC technician complete comprehensive mini-split service on your system is absolutely necessary. Like traditional system manufacturers, the makers of mini-split systems generally require regular tune-ups to keep warranties valid.
