Our Tips for Spotting Ductless Problems

Monday, August 8th, 2022

Ductless air conditioners can run into problems just like central AC units! The tricky part is that some problems can be a little different because of the system’s layout and cooling distribution. For instance, a single air handler can break down if you have a ductless system, but the other air handlers will still continue to work (and efficiently too) so it can sometimes be harder to notice there’s a problem.
