Ductless Heating Repair in Morro Bay, Cayucos, San Luis Obispo, Los Osos, CA, and Surrounding Areas
A ductless heating system’s primary function is to heat up or cool down air instead of warming or cooling floors like other systems do. Common malfunctions that may arise for owners are blower motor malfunctions and lack of airflow.

The most common reasons for malfunction include dust that is clogging air intake vents, loss of refrigerant, a failing condensate pump, or low refrigerant levels due to leaks or improper charging during installation. A clogged air filter will cause the fan motor to overheat and fail.
Where is the unit most likely malfunctioning?
For any of the following issues in Morro Bay, Cayucos, San Luis Obispo, Los Osos, CA, and surrounding areas, we recommend calling Pacific Heating & Sheet Metal today for a check-up.
An owner can interpret most malfunctions simply by listening to the sound of the machine.
Muffled sounds coming from a ductless heating unit is typically a sign that it needs to be cleaned or checked for refrigerant levels. In more serious cases, your unit’s fan may not be rotating properly and need some assistance.
When blower motors stop working, they usually need replacement. If there is no airflow or very little airflow present in your system, this may mean that there was a clog somewhere on the air intake vents, and this should be removed and re-installed correctly.
The condensate pump usually stops working if it becomes clogged with dirt or other objects. Dirty coils can cause a ductless heating unit to lose energy and fail as well.
What should I try doing first?
A common problem associated with a lack of airflow is dirt clogging the air intake vents. Try cleaning out the filters on your system, and then check that they are reattached correctly. Removing an obstruction from this part might solve the problem. If not, contact Pacific Heating & Sheet Metal for an inspection in Morro Bay, Cayucos, San Luis Obispo, Los Osos, CA, and surrounding areas.
If there is no airflow present, you most likely have a faulty fan motor or blower wheel assembly. In some cases, this could mean that refrigerant levels are too low or that your condensate pump has stopped working, so be sure to inspect it thoroughly for any signs of wear and tear before calling a professional.
If the condensate pump has stopped working, you will need to check your system for any signs of leaks or clogs and clean them out. This should solve the problem. But it could be something more serious.
Do not attempt to fix or replace any part on your own without proper training, precautions, and the right tools.
