Much like other components of your home, ductless HVAC systems have their own set of features that correspond to a certain set of problem areas. This means that should the need for repairs arise, the service requirements will be specific to ductless systems.

Water and refrigerant leaks. All wall-mounted air handlers house connections that run behind the units. One of these is the condensate line, which is responsible for removing moisture during the cooling process. Condensate lines can leak over time, however, as they work to keep moisture out of your living spaces.

Left unattended, water leaks can lead to moisture damage, not just to the air-handling unit itself but to your home as well.

Take note that refrigerant lines can also leak and put your home at risk of damage.

Broken air handlers. When an air handler breaks, the bad news is that you’ll be left without cooling for the particular room it’s in. However, air handlers typically break due to isolated reasons like a failed motor. As such, the good news is that the rest of the air handlers in your home will continue to work. While you won’t be completely without cooling, it’s best to have a broken air handler repaired right away to ensure consistent comfort in your home.
