What are the signs that my Carrier ductless split system needs repair?
If you suspect that your Carrier ductless split system doesn’t work as well as it should be, don’t wait. If not addressed quickly, a small problem can lead to more expensive repairs, and perhaps even a complete replacement of your system.
Here are some things to watch out for:
- Unresponsive ductless split system controls: If your system fails to respond when you turn it on or off, or when using the controls, it may be an electrical issue or the reversing valve may need replacement.
- Unusual high energy bills: The average lifespan for a Carrier ductless split system is from 10 to 15 years. Like most HVAC systems, Carrier split systems tend to lose efficiency with time. If your Carrier ductless split unit is recent, high energy consumption could signal problems such as grungy equipement, clogged air filter, short cycling and failing parts. If you notice a dramatic increase on your energy bills, call Tran Climatisation for an inspection.
- Reduction in ductless split system cooling output: If you notice a lack of cool air, it can indicate a refrigerant leak. Once all the refrigerant has drained out of your ductless split system, the air handler will simply works as a fan. If this is indeed the problem, refrigerant will leak out slowly over time, gradually reducing your HVAC cooling capacity.
- Grinding noise coming from your indoor unit (evaporator) : If you hear grinding noises coming from your indoor unit, it generally means that the oiled bearing used to reduce motor friction has started to wear down. Don’t ignore that sound; it can result in the air handler motor overheating and burning out.
- Ice forming on your outdoor unit’s cooling coils : Reduced air flow can cause the coils to freeze over. This could be caused by a clogged air filter, a malfunctioning thermostat, a broken fan, a refrigerant leak or a dirty coil. Once again, if you see ice building up, don’t ignore it. The ice’s weight can warp the cooling coil and may require a complete coil replacement.
