What Are The Benefits of Cleaning a Mini-Split System?

August 9th, 2023

Mini-split HVAC systems may be easier to maintain than conventional systems with sprawling networks of ducts, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need any upkeep whatsoever. Cleaning your system regularly is the most important thing you can do to keep it running smoothly. Here are four big benefits you’ll notice after cleaning your mini-split HVAC system.

1. Better Efficiency

Mini-split systems need regular maintenance to function properly. If you don’t clean your system every few months, dirt and dust from around your home will eventually clog it up. This means that your system will require more power to achieve the same results it did before it became compromised. It will also take longer to heat or cool the room, forcing you to spend more time enduring uncomfortable temperatures.

2. Lower Energy Bills

A more efficient system is not only more effective at controlling the temperature on your home – it also uses much less electricity to do it. By cleaning out your system, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint and lower your power bills at the same time. If you have the heat or air conditioning turned on most of the time, this one change could save you hundreds of dollars a year.

3. Lower Repair Costs

Cleaning your mini-split system will also reduce the stress on the system’s parts. Dirty systems can’t moderate their own temperature effectively, exposing their inner workings to temperature extremes that may cause permanent damage. If this happens, you’ll need to replace those parts – a process that can get very expensive very quickly.

4. Better Health

A mini-split HVAC system that hasn’t been cleaned in a while can build up all sorts of harmful contaminants. Allergens like pollen and pet dander can accumulate inside the unit, spreading all over the room whenever you turn on the heat or air conditioning. You may even find mold growing in your system if the air in your home is particularly humid.  This can make it difficult to breathe and may even make you and your family sick.
