Why Ductless Heating Systems Require Maintenance Twice a Year

Preventive maintenance is key to granting heating systems a long and healthy lifespan. Normally, scheduling preventive maintenance once a year is enough to keep most heating systems in good condition. However, this isn’t the case with ductless heating systems. If you want your ductless heating system to last as long as possible, you’re going to need to schedule maintenance a bit more often. Let’s take a look at the importance of preventive maintenance, and why ductless heating systems need to get it more often.

Why Preventive Maintenance Matters

Far too many people tend to wait to call for repairs until a problem with their system presents itself. By doing this, they are simply giving the problem more time to progress and damage the system. Preventive maintenance allows an HVAC technician to find and fix problems long before they progress far enough to damage the system. Annual preventive maintenance can save you thousands of dollars in repair costs over the lifespan of the system.

Scheduling Ductless Heating Maintenance

The best time to schedule preventive maintenance for a system is a month or so before they are put under the most stress. For heating systems, that’s during the fall. This method of scheduling maintenance ensures that the system is in the best possible shape before tackling the most demanding part of the year. Ductless heating systems are heat pumps, however, which means that they are often used year round as both heating and cooling systems. In order to cope with the extra wear and tear of being used that often, a ductless system should always receive maintenance twice a year. Schedule maintenance for your ductless system during the spring and fall seasons, and it should remain in good condition.
