Dropping ductless output in the middle of a hot summer is… less than pleasant. There are a number of reasons why this might be happening, all of which require professional repair services. If your ductless system isn’t putting out as much cool air as it is supposed to be, read on to find out why.
Refrigerant is the core of a ductless system. It is the fluid that the units evaporate to absorb heat from the home. The refrigerant gas is then condensed in the outside unit to vent the collected heat out of the home. The refrigerant is never consumed, but is instead recycled throughout the system. If a refrigerant leak develops, it will drain the ductless system of the fluid that it needs to operate. This will cause a steady decline in output, followed eventually by a full system breakdown. Call for repairs if you see fluid dripping from the system.
Is the entire system putting out less cool air, or just one unit? If it’s just one unit, it’s possible that there’s a problem with that system’s thermostat. Check to make sure that everything on the thermostat is displaying correctly. If it isn’t, have a professional take a look at it as soon as possible.
Air Handler Issues
Each of the units that make up your system has its own air handler. These air handlers circulate air throughout their respective rooms during operation. If the air handler malfunctions for whatever reason, the system will not be able to circulate air properly and therefore be unable to cool the room. If your air handler isn’t blowing as strongly as it should, it may be that it needs professional repairs.
