Contrary to popular belief, ductless air conditioning and ductless heating are not maintenance-free. It does require periodic care and between peak seasons is the ideal time for cleaning and service. Not only does proper upkeep improve overall air quality, but it also extends unit life, energy efficiency, and system performance.
During normal usage, condensation builds up on internal components including the coils and condenser. Condensation leads to the growth of bacteria, mold, and other allergens which can’t be eliminated by basic cleaning. Tragar’s service technicians will safely and effectively clean and sanitize your ductless system, restoring air quality and unit efficiency.
The Hidden Dangers of Home Cleaning Kits
Ductless cleaning kits are available at home improvement stores and online. What these kits contain are simplified versions of what’s needed. A home cleaning kit doesn’t usually contain the proper anti-microbial cleaning chemicals including those needed for proper mold elimination, electrical testing kits to ensure proper unit function, and proper safety gear.
The most important thing that home cleaning kits don’t contain is proper experience and training for safe, effective cleaning. Electrical components can be damaged by using the wrong chemicals or improper airflow while cleaning. Excess water pressure can harm condensers. Blower wheels can be broken with incorrect temperature probe use. Damage potential isn’t solely limited to the ductless system. Unit capacitors retain an electrical charge for an extended time and can pose a danger to unaware homeowners.
