Ductless Troubleshooting: One of My Air Handlers Won’t Work!

Ductless mini-split heat pumps are one of the most effective and efficient ways for Florida residents to enjoy comfort all year long. You have the advantage of heating and cooling in a single system without needing space-consuming and potentially inefficient air ducts. Ductless systems also provide excellent energy savings.

If your home has more than one air handler, which many homes with ductless systems do, you might run into an issue where one of these units stops functioning. When this happens, there are a few steps you can take towards troubleshooting the problem.

Check the Remote Batteries

Many homeowners overlook this when trying to run their ductless systems. You can operate your air handlers using buttons on the front of the unit. However, most people use remotes. So, if you discover that the air handler isn’t working remotely, the problems may be as simple as the battery. Change the batteries to see if that was indeed the problem.

Check Your Thermostat Setting

It’s quite probable that the temperature setting for your air handler is incorrect, or even that the air handler was switched over to the wrong mode. Most units let you control the temperature by remote, so be sure to make adjustments and see if the problem fixes itself.

Check the Circuit Breakers

Check your unit’s display. If it’s blank then the issue might be that your system has lost power. Go to your circuit breaker panel to see if the breaker for the unit has tripped. If this is the case, then try resetting it and running the air handler again. Keep in mind that if the breaker continuously trips, then you probably have a problem with your wiring that requires prompt attention.

If you’ve tried all of these troubleshooting tips and are still having problems, then it is time to call in the pros for expert repairs.
