Don’t Forget About Your Ductless Mini Split Tune-Up!

ductless-min-splitThere is no way that you’ve not heard about how important routine heating and cooling maintenance is if you’ve been following this blog at all. The long and short of it is this. Your heating and air conditioning systems will never function as well, reliably, or efficiently as possible if you fail to schedule routine maintenance service. Now, that’s all well and good, but what happens when you use just one system throughout the entire year? We’ll tell you what should happen. You should schedule routine maintenance for it twice!

A system that is functioning as a heater and as an air conditioner, such as your ductless mini split, is doing the twice the amount of work that a designated heater or AC system would be doing. If you fail to schedule ductless mini split tune-ups twice a year, that is the equivalent of scheduling furnace maintenance only every other year. You are really just asking for trouble if this is the attitude that you take. Contact us if you have any questions, or to schedule ductless mini split services in Everett, WA.

Biannual Maintenance Benefits You and Your System

It is impossible to state just how vital routine ductless mini split maintenance really is. Your system is working throughout the entire year, and needs to perform when required. While our summer heat may not be as intense as in Texas, and our winters are as frigid as in Minnesota, that’s still a lot of work. Keeping up with routine maintenance benefits you in a few ways.

Efficiency

The whole point of using a ductless mini split kind of boils down to energy efficiency, right? Heat pump technology allows for great efficiency to start with, while the elimination of air ducts allows you to eliminate the risk of energy via duct leaks. However, a poorly maintained system just is not going to operate as efficiently as possible. If you fail to schedule ductless mini split maintenance for both the heating and cooling seasons, you are in effect negating one of the primary purposes for using such a system.

Reliability

During the coldest time of the year, you’ll probably wind up kicking yourself for failing to schedule routine maintenance for your ductless mini split. At best, the overall heating quality of your system will falter. At worst, it is going to require repairs when it breaks down on you. Just because our weather may not get too extreme either way is no excuse for putting up with an unreliable HVAC system.

Lifespan

There are surely plenty of items that you’d love to splurge on. Replacing your HVAC system premature is probably not high on your list of priorities, though. That’s the risk that you take if you fail to keep up with your system’s maintenance demands. A well-maintained system is going to have not only a more productive lifespan, but a longer one.
