Ductless Air Conditioner Repair

Comprehensive repair for any ductless AC unit in Northeast Ohio

Today more and more homeowners in Northeast Ohio are enjoying the comfort and reliability of ductless mini-split air conditioning. Ductless AC is designed to cool individual rooms (or “zones”) via wall- or ceiling-mounted units that can be managed individually. As with all HVAC systems, ductless mini-split AC requires regular maintenance to keep up with regular wear and tear and catch any minor issues before they lead to major problems.

The importance of regular maintenance for your ductless mini-split AC

During a tune up appointment, a professional cooling technician will:

  • Clean and replace filters
  • Clean the evaporator coils and outdoor condensing unit
  • Inspect refrigerant lines and insulation wraps
  • Remove excess debris from the outside unit
  • Check fans and blower wheels to ensure they are rotating freely
  • Inspect the refrigerant reservoir and top it off if needed

Common repairs for ductless mini-split cooling systems

While ductless air conditioners are known for their hardiness, there will come a time your system unexpectedly falters or routine maintenance uncovers a needed repair. Cleveland-area homeowners are likely to face the following common ductless AC problems:

  • A broken compressor. Compressors pressurize the refrigerant in an air conditioner, producing cool air. If your ductless system’s compressor is not working properly, it will cause warm air to blow instead of cold air.
  • Issues with the indoor blower. Each indoor unit contains a fan, a set of coils, and a filter. A breakdown with any of these components will cause the ductless system to malfunction.
  • Problems with refrigerant or condensate drain lines. Each indoor blower connects to the outdoor unit via a refrigerant line and a condensate drain line that run through an external wall; both of these lines can develop leaks or clogs that back up the system.
  • Electrical issues. Minor electrical problems will be indicated with a fault code on your unit’s display and can be fixed by referring to the owner’s manual. However if the display is blank, a fuse or circuit breaker may have blown or loose wiring may be to blame.

What People Are Saying

  • Your company did an excellent job!  We really appreciated how quickly your crew worked in order to get our heat back on as soon as possible.  Everyone seemed very knowledgeable, professional and excellent in their work!

    - Marianne P.( Aurora, Boiler Installation, December 2017 )
  • Bill carefully examined the old boiler and piping, checked all the radiators and came up with a replacement proposal.  He explained two issues with the old boiler that other contractors did not notice or did not care to explain.  The first was what’s causing the rust in the boiler and how he was going to minimize the issue in the new system.  The second was how he would re-pipe the kitchen loop so the kitchen wouldn’t be so cold.  Bill addressed each and every question I had.  Although we received four bids that were comparable, we chose Bill Hann’s company because he was knowledgeable, thoughtful and detailed.  The work was completed in two days by a great installer team.  They were on time, professional and courteous.  The new boiler and piping work nicely without any issues and we now have a comfortable kitchen to dine in.  I’d highly recommend them.

  • I strongly recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann without reservation.  Choosing the right boiler was important and proper installation was critical.  I was impressed with all aspects of the Verne & Ellsworth Hann organization.  Most importantly, Bill Hann earned my trust.  The installation team was excellent.  They were experienced.  They arrived precisely on time every day.  They explained every step of the process.  They worked as a team.  They treated my home with extreme care, as if it was their own.  The installation is a thing of beauty.  Every time I go into my basement I smile.  I now have a reliable, efficient system.  I don’t usually take the time to write recommendations, but in this case I am doing so because it is so well deserved.
