How to Respond to a Ductless Air Conditioning Breakdown

Monday, July 25th, 2016

Ductless air conditioning systems are a fantastic resource for keeping cool down here in Huntington Beach, CA. They’re efficient and easy to use, and when properly maintained that can last a long time. But they suffer occasional breakdowns just like any other appliance. When they do, you need to trust that the repair service you contact is going to do the job right. But you also want to prevent further damage until the repair service can get there. Here’s the steps you take to when one of your ductless units breaks down.

  • Shut down the faulty unit. Take quick stock of what the problem is — anything out of the ordinary like strange noises, leaks or the like — then turn the system off. Then check the ductless units in the other nearby parts of the house to ensure that they aren’t exhibiting the same problems (they usually aren’t).
  • Take stock of the home. Once you’ve shut down the problem air conditioner, you want to ascertain whether there’s more you can do until the service can get there. If you can turn off any other units in the home, then do so. Select the two or three parts of the house that you’ll be using when you wait for the service, and limit your activity to just those parts of the house. Then turn off the remaining units and call in the cavalry.

The benefit of this is that it allows you to still enjoy crisp, cool air conditioning without causing any further unnecessary damage and without forcing your family to sit in a hot house. That said, ductless air conditioning systems are specialized pieces of equipment, and you should contact a specialist to deal with it the right way.

Who Benefits the Most from Ductless Air Conditioning Systems?

Monday, July 11th, 2016

Ductless air conditioning systems adopt a decentralized approach to keeping your home cool: installing multiple small units throughout your home instead of just using one centralized system to generate all your cool air. Ductless systems allow you to turn off the air in parts of the home you aren’t using and save money on your bills, as well as allowing individual family members to set the temperature to suit their tastes in different parts of the home. But not every home here in Long Beach, CA can benefit from ductless air conditioners, and in some cases, centralized systems are more effective. So who benefits the most? We have a short breakdown below.
