Ductless heating and air conditioning systems are a natural fit for homes down by the shore here in Huntington Beach, CA, and our trained staff provides a full array of installation, repair and maintenance services for ductless systems. But like any other household appliance, your system will invariably run into problems, and the sooner you notice the signs of them, the better. Ductless systems benefit from a decentralized model, which means a problem affecting one unit likely won’t impact the rest of the house. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have to deal with issues when they do arise, or periodically check all of the units in your ductless mini-split system for signs of trouble. What kinds of signs should you look for? Here’s a quick run-down of some of the most common. If you spot them, turn off the affected unit and call a repair service:

Replacing Your Ductless Heating System

Monday, November 7th, 2016

Ductless heating systems can be a huge boon to larger homes in Huntington Beach, CA, but also any home which benefits from a more finely-tuned system. They heat each section of your home individually, using a series of smaller units instead of one big one. It allows for finely-tuned heating specific to your needs, as well as saving a great deal of money by letting you heat only those parts of the house that you’re using at any given time. That helps the system last a good long time as well, but what happens when individual components start to break down?

Making the Most of Your Ductless Heating System

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.

Call the pros at Command A/C whenever you have a problem with your ductless air conditioning system!
