Climate control systems are expensive, for the most part. They’re also necessary for a lot of people, which means that the name of the game is to get the best return on investment possible. The way to do that is to make it last for as long as you can, and to replace it before it suddenly dies on you. If you’re using a ductless system, you should know that the average one lasts about 10-15 years. You can use that range as a guide, but the best way to tell whether you need a new ductless system is to keep watch for certain warning signs.
Using your ductless system more often is going to cause higher bills, but there’s something else you need to consider. As the system wears down, it will slowly begin to lose efficiency. This will force the system to operate for longer in order to compensate for the lost efficiency. This will lead to higher bills. If your bills are rising faster than they should be, it may be a warning that your ductless system is about to fail.
Nothing is perfect, certainly not ductless mini splits. So of course you’re going to be dealing with repairs every now and again. The thing to keep in mind is that the more a system wears down, the more likely various parts of it will be to fail in groups. That’s when you need to start paying close attention. If your ductless system needs to be repaired every few months, you really should consider having it replaced.
