Nothing is quite as frustrating as having your ductless system fail to cool your home properly on a hot summer day. If your ductless system isn't performing as well as it should be, there could be a couple of reasons why. Let's take a look at some of the possible causes for a drop in ductless system output.
Each part of the ductless system installed throughout the home uses an air handler to circulate air through the room. This air handler is responsible for moving the room's air through the unit, so that it can be cooled, and then blowing it back out into the space. If the air handler malfunctions, the ductless system won't actually be able to cool the room. If your ductless mini split doesn't seem to be blowing any air at all, it's probably a problem with the air handler.
Refrigerant is the core of most air conditioning systems. It's the fluid that your ductless system uses in order to siphon heat from your air. If a leak develops in the refrigerant line, it will slowly drain the ductless mini split of the fluid that it needs in order to function properly. This can cause a drop in output from the system.
It's also possible that the ductless mini split is just fine, and that the problem is actually located in the thermostat. Check the thermostat on the unit that seems to be giving you trouble. If everything is displaying correctly, then the thermostat is likely fine. If the thermostat is acting odd in any way, that might be the source of your problem.
