The headline might make it sound as if we aren’t in favor of using ductless mini split systems (a.k.a. ductless heat pumps) for home heating and cooling. But we are! We think ductless heat pumps are one of the best solutions for home comfort around, especially for older homes or smaller homes without room for ductwork. Ductless mini split systems are convenient, easy and fast for professionals to install, improve indoor air quality, and have excellent energy efficiency.
But, like any HVAC system, ductless mini splits may need to be repaired at some point. They don’t suffer from the duct-related problems that can plague standard heat pumps and air conditioners, but there are a few specific repair issues they can suffer from. We’re going to go over a few of the ductless heat pump problems you encounter.
