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.

  • I want you to know how pleased I was with the entire experience.  From the initial meeting with Chris through the installation of my new A/C unit.

    - Sondra S.( Shaker Heights, Air Conditioning Installation July 2017 )
  • Installers were spot on time at 8 am, took care not to track dirt into house, and were both courteous and friendly.  Excellent quality work to boot!

    - John S.( Cleveland, Air Conditioning Installation, June 2017 )
  • I have had several projects from Verne & Ellsworth, across boiler replacements, heating system installation, and air conditioning system set up and install.  Each of these times, Bill Hann takes a ton of his time to talk to my wife and I to learn about the issues we’re having, explain the root causes of those issues, and suggest fixes that we know will prevent the issues from coming back – not just paper over the issue temporarily.  Lastly, he always delivers on time – onsite when he says he will be, fishing when he says he will – and always makes sure every aspect of the job is completed, from material removal and set up, to equipment install, to clean up after the project.  A++ and highly recommended!

  • The unit is working very well.  The installers were very professional, showed me how everything worked, and cleaned the basement beautifully.  I would never have even known they were there.  Thank you again.
