Just wanted to give you a quick tip for today. Today we’re here at one of our clients doing the service on a ductless mini-split system.
Big fan of mini splits. Phenomenal systems.
They work so well are so efficient and so quiet, but they are prone to collecting a lot of dirt, dust and other debris. These ductless systems need to be cleaned and serviced regularly.
How to clean the Blower Wheel of your Ductless AC
This is a blower wheel out of one of the units. They are prone to collecting dust and dirt, even getting mold on them. We see this quite often with the ductless mini-splits. It’s very important to keep your filters clean, but even with regular filter services, we do tend to see this happen pretty commonly with the ductless mini-splits.
So today we’ve got one we’ve torn apart for our client here and we’re cleaning it.
We’ve already done the actual inside unit that hangs on your wall. We’re going to get this blower wheel cleaned up here for this gentleman and get all this out of here for them.
Use pressurized water or hose to remove dirt and debris
Now that we’ve got this all cleaned up, we’re going to dry this off a bit, then take this back inside and reinstall this into the wall-mounted ductless unit that this came out of. And we’ll take a few pictures and videos to show you what that looks like in there as well.
You can see now how nice and clean this is inside of here. Previously, all that dust and dirt mold build-up was also all over the air conditioning coil and up in there in that blower compartment, you can see we were able to get all of that removed from the housing as well as the blower wheel.
Now, the system is nice and clean, ready to operate without polluting their indoor air quality.
Inspect your own Ductless Air Conditioner
I really hope this has been helpful for you today. You’ve got to see both what a dirty system as well as a clean one looks like.
If you’re curious about your own, you can certainly take a flashlight and just shine it in from the bottom.
You’ll see that blower wheel in there? If you see any dirt or dust build-up, especially if you see any black mold, anything of that sort, it’s probably worthwhile to contact your local air conditioning service provider and I’m sure they can help you out with it.
Otherwise, just make sure you take your filters out. I would recommend removing those monthly and washing those out.
All this stuff that you’ve seen here, just keep in mind that either the stuff is going to get removed from the air by your filters or by your lung.
The choice is yours.
