What is a Minisplit A/C system?
Ductless, mini split air conditioning is an alternative to a central A/C add-on. Instead of distributing cold air through vents built in to your home, these systems distribute it through indoor handling units. Each unit represents a “zone,” and multiple zones can be placed around your home. Mini split air conditioning has two main components: an outdoor condenser, and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units.
Mini Split is not Cooling
If you’re trying to figure out how to fix a mini split, the problem might be a refrigerant leak. Check the power supply, did it accidentally get disconnected? Or , if you are using a controller, change the batteries on the device. Changing dirty filters and clearing out debris can help a unit that is on, but not blowing enough cool air. Other issues, such as a blown capacitor, will require a trained technician and a parts replacement.
Mini Split is Leaking Water
If your indoor unit is dripping, it is likely a clogged drain or condensate line. Mold and mildew can sometimes clog the line and cause problems. However, if you smell vinegar, it is more likely to be a refrigerant leak. Jack HVAC Technicians can unclog the line for you and get your A/C working again quickly.
