Why Your Ductless System Needs Maintenance Twice a Year

As you wrap up your preparations to get your home ready for summer, you might try to avoid scheduling maintenance in order to save some money and hassle. This may be especially tempting if you already had ductless maintenance done less than six months ago, during the winter. However, if you want to make sure that your ductless system is ready for summer, you’re going to need to make sure that you schedule maintenance this season as well. Read on to find out why ductless systems need maintenance twice a year.

Why Schedule Preventive Maintenance?

The reason that you want to schedule preventive maintenance is because it gives your technicians a chance to find and fix problems before they have the chance to develop. Most HVAC problems do not give off any kind of recognizable outward symptoms until they’re quite advanced. By the time you notice any of these symptoms, it will likely be too late to prevent the majority of the damage. Preventive maintenance, provided it is scheduled on a regular basis, is enough to prevent the majority of the problems the system could run into. This could save you thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of the system.

Why Bi-Annual Maintenance

Most climate control systems only need preventive maintenance once a year in order to benefit from it, typically the season before the one in which they’ll see the most use. Ductless systems are heat pumps, though, and offer both heating and cooling functions. This causes them to suffer twice as much wear and tear, which means that they need twice as much maintenance in order to cope.
