How Does Ductless Air Conditioning Work?

Friday, April 24th, 2015

In areas where the weather is pleasant much of the year, ducts do not always come standard in houses. Ductless homes and businesses are common in Florida, but you still need air conditioning to make it through the hottest days. If you are looking for a whole-house or single-room air conditioning system, a ductless mini split is the way to go. (more…)

When Is the Time for Ductless AC Maintenance?

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Ductless air conditioning is an innovation that allows homeowners the full power of a standard air conditioner without having to fuss with any bulky ductwork. Many homes in Florida are built without ductwork due to our beautiful and temperate climate. Adding ductwork to a home is time consuming and it may be very difficult for some structures. Luckily, your ductless unit keeps you just as cool as any air conditioning solution, is more effective than a small room air conditioner, and does not need too many repairs over time.

However, your ductless unit may still be prone to repairs if you don’t schedule regular ductless AC maintenance in Fort Pierce, FL. So when should you schedule ductless maintenance? As soon as possible!

If it’s been a while since you’ve had anyone look at the components of your ductless unit, today’s the day to schedule an appointment. Maintenance can help your unit run more efficiently, cool more thoroughly, and last longer. That’s because a few simple adjustments can help your system run at its peak once again.

Ductless air conditioning systems have components that could wear down over time or become very dirty (particularly the outdoor portions). But sometimes, all a system really needs is a bit of an adjustment to get back into top shape. Some common adjustments technicians make include tightening electrical connections, calibrating thermostats, and cleaning off coils. The technician will also perform a full system inspection, testing out components and checking for proper refrigerant levels. You may have to schedule another appointment if you need a major repair, but it’s better to know about it now than when it breaks down.

When you call the experts at Advantage Air Conditioning for ductless AC maintenance in Fort Pierce, FL, we will pay close attention to every detail of your inside and outside unit so that you won’t have to worry about the potential effects of a worn-down unit.
