6 Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Ductless Heating System

Ductless heating systems, like any other piece of technology, come with their own unique set of challenges. One such challenge is discerning when it’s time to say goodbye and invest in a new system. Van Drunen Heating & Air, with over 50 years of experience, aims to arm you with the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions about your ductless heating system.

Understanding Ductless Heating Systems

Ductless heating systems, or mini-splits, provide comfort without extensive ductwork. They are perfect for homes without existing ducts or for adding comfort to new spaces. These systems differ from traditional HVAC units in that they heat specific zones in your home, offering more control over individual room temperatures. While energy-efficient and convenient, they do have a limited lifespan.

6 Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Ductless Heating System

Sign 1: Rising Energy Bills

One telltale sign that your ductless heating system may require replacement is increased energy costs. If you notice a steady rise in your monthly bills, your system is losing efficiency and working harder to produce the same level of comfort.

Sign 2: Frequent Repairs Needed

A system needing constant repairs is often a system nearing the end of its lifespan. If your ductless heating system requires frequent fixes, consider a replacement. Investing in a new system is more cost-effective in the long run than ongoing repairs.

Sign 3: Inconsistent Room Temperatures

Ductless heating systems are designed to provide consistent temperatures across different rooms. If you notice uneven heating or heat loss, it could be a symptom of a failing system. This inconsistency can lead to discomfort and higher energy usage.

Sign 4: System is Over 15 Years Old

The typical lifespan of a ductless heating system is around 15 years. While routine maintenance can extend this lifespan, age can still take its toll. If your system is over 15 years old, it may be time to consider a replacement.

Sign 5: Increase in Dust and Noise

Excessive dust and noise are often overlooked signs of a malfunctioning system. A properly functioning ductless heating system should operate quietly and contribute positively to indoor air quality. Increased dust and noise can indicate that the system is not working as efficiently as it should.     

Sign 6: Freon Leaks

Ductless heating systems use refrigerant to heat and cool air. If your system is low on Freon, it can affect its ability to maintain consistent temperatures. A leak in the refrigerant line could indicate a more significant issue with the system that may require replacement.

Take the First Step Towards Efficiency Today 

Knowing when to replace your ductless heating system is essential to maintaining a comfortable and efficient home environment. It might be time for a replacement if you notice rising energy bills, frequent repairs, inconsistent room temperatures, an aging system, or increased dust and noise.
