Best Maintenance Practices for Mini Splits & Mini Split Systems

mini split systems from Dixie

Mini-splits are very efficient and cost-effective and a great option for specific applications like single rooms where ductwork isn’t available. However, like other HVAC equipment, regular care and maintenance is necessary to keep them running at their best.

While scheduling regular maintenance with the professionals at Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air is the best tip we can offer, following are key best-practice suggestions to optimally maintain your mini-split systems.

1. Schedule Regular Annual Maintenance

We put this at number one because proper maintenance always ensures your mini split will operate at its peak performance. Discover the Dixie difference when you schedule one of our trained technicians to complete a comprehensive maintenance check on your mini split system. They will follow an established checklist to ensure all aspects of the equipment are functioning properly and the investment you’ve made is secure.

2. Check the Filter

Regularly washing your filters ensures proper ventilation and airflow and reduces dust buildup in your environment. Our highly skilled technicians will check each component of the air quality of your mini-split and replace the filters if necessary. If you wish, they can show you how to check and clean your filter at more frequent intervals. At Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air, we pride ourselves in providing quality services to our clients for every HVAC, electric, or plumbing need.

3. Check Wiring

If you notice any signs of corrosion, contact a professional technician to fully inspect the wiring to the mini split system. Corrosion can result from many factors, including excess moisture.

The wiring on mini-split systems should be checked by a service professional such as Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air. 

Some of the issues that may occur with the wiring include:

  • The wiring could be loose or broken.
  • There could be incorrect hookups and connections.
  • Overloading could cause overheating and the system to short circuit.

Once you contact us, we will dispatch our service professional as soon as possible to assess and repair your mini split unit in the Montgomery and Auburn, AL, area.

4. Cleaning the Condenser Coil

Cleaning the condenser coil is important for the mini split to run efficiently and requires professional skills to avoid permanent damage. Discover the Dixie difference in the professional manner in which we work. To maintain the highest performance level, we always recommend cleaning the entire mini split system thoroughly after each season, which includes the condenser coil along with every major component.
