Going ductless is a fantastic way to get your hands on a more efficient heating and cooling system that will save you a great deal of money. They also take up a lot less space than traditional heating and cooling systems so if you’re working with tight quarters, you’re in luck! You may be thinking this type of system is maintenance-free, but the truth is the more you put into your system, the more you’ll get out of it.

Cleaning Filters

One common mistake homeowners make with their HVAC system is not cleaning the filters or not cleaning them frequently enough. Truth is, you should clean your filters every four weeks or so.

Have pets lived with you? You should clean them more frequently especially if you have someone in your home that is prone to allergies.

Cleaning your filter will help to ensure that your HVAC system runs properly, but you should also be cleaning the unit itself…

Cleaning the Unit

If your mini-split HVAC system gets dirty, make sure that you clean it as soon as possible. Dirt and debris can get near the pipes and cause obstructions.

This can cause your machine to work less effectively and over time it can cause some serious damage. You know what that leads to right? Costly repairs or even the need for a full system replacement.

So, how often should you clean the unit?

It is a good idea to clean the outside of the unit at least once a week and the compressor should be cleaned at least every few months.

A ductless HVAC system makes for a terrific addition to your home and can increase your home’s value. However, to get the most out of it you MUST give it some attention from time to time.
