As long as you’re careful to schedule maintenance and repairs, you can make a ductless air conditioning system last a pretty long time. However, no amount of repairs or maintenance will make one last forever. Sooner or later, you’ll need to have your system replaced with a new one. It’s important that you be able to recognize the signs that your system is failing, so that you can replace it as soon as possible. Let’s take a look at some of the signs that you need a new ductless air conditioner.
As a ductless system gets older and wears down, it will start to lose efficiency. In order to compensate for this gradually declining efficiency, the system will start to operate for longer and longer periods of time. This will cause your monthly bills to steadily rise. If your bills are going up for no apparent reason, it may be that you need a new ductless system.
All ductless systems need repairs every once in a while. The older a system gets, though, the more likely various parts will be to break down. As the system nears the end of its life, it will need repairs multiple times a year. If you need to repair your ductless system every few months, it’s probably better just to install a new system.
The average ductless system lasts between 10 and 15 years. After that point, it becomes more and more costly to keep the system up and running. If your ductless mini split is older than 15 years, it will likely be much more cost effective to just replace the system.
