Ductless mini split systems have become increasing popular due to their cost-effective energy efficiency. That being said, your mini split is no good to you if you do not properly take care of the unit. When you regularly perform maintenance on your mini split, you ensure peak performance and a longer lifespan.

Here are some Tips on how to maintain your Ductless Mini Split System

  • Keep it clean

A dirty system will inevitably lead to major problems. The easiest thing you can do to protect the system is to regularly clean the outside of the unit of dust and debris. This will prevent any particles or debris from entering the unit and making their way into the operating pieces. Simply dust and wipe down the unit, including the outdoor vents, as part of your normal house cleaning routine.

  • Make sure it has enough space

One of the great things about ductless mini split systems is that they require much less space than your traditional HVAC system. They do require sufficient amount of space to operate correctly though. Make sure to keep large furniture away from the unit and allow several feet of free space around the unit.

  • Clean the filters

Like traditional systems, mini splits need to have their filters checked and cleaned on a regular basis to ensure peak functionality

Performing these simple tasks will extend the life of your mini split system and result in increased overall efficiency and comfort.
