Ductless mini split systems act very similarly to regular ducted systems except they have no ducts. They are simply an air handler (evaporator) attach to a wall or ceiling which in turn is attached to a condenser unit outside. As such, ductless mini split systems require consistent, ongoing maintenance to maintain their performance and efficiency. 

Basic maintenance should occur at least annually and in most areas twice a year. If you live in particularly dusty areas or have recently undergone gone construction, you may want to clean more often. 

There are two parts of the system that need to be maintained. The outdoor condenser, which should be cleaned/rinsed with water twice year to remove dirt and pollen from the coils. Then the indoor unit coil and blower wheel also need to be cleaned. The washable filters should be vacuumed or rinsed according to the manufacturer’s directions.  

The coil and the blower wheel can be cleaned less frequently since they tend to attract the smaller particles of dirt and dander in the air.  Factors including people, pets and location can increase the fouling time of the coil and blower wheel.  That debris, when mixed with moisture also causes the blower wheel  to get loaded up and will be out of balance.  These wheels can also be great breeding grounds for bacteria. 

We the use  the Desolv Mini Split Kit when cleaning your blower unit/evaporator. This all-in-one kit helps keep your room clean and protected as it captures all the water and cleaner you will use and safely funnels it away into a 5 gallon bucket. We also make sure your walls and floor are protected with drop cloths just in case of overrun of fluids.
