Ductless Split Systems
Have a single room that is too hot or too cold? An alternative to conventional central heating and air conditioning systems is a Mitsubishi ductless split system. Because Mitsubishi split-zoning systems don’t require ductwork, they’re the perfect heating and cooling systems for renovating older buildings that were constructed before air conditioning was available—even those with plaster walls and brick facades. Pearson is honored to be one of only two Mitsubishi Diamond Contractors in the area.

Common Air Conditioner Issues
There are many different reasons that an air conditioner can break down or fail to perform its best. Many problems arise from wear-and-tear, but in some cases system owners discover that the issue could have been prevented with regular maintenance. Here are some of the most common AC diagnoses we see:
- Low refrigerant. If your air conditioner is blowing warm air, the issue may be low refrigerant levels or a leak in the refrigerant line. A trained technician will find and repair weak spots in the line.
- Frozen evaporator coils. This part of the air conditioner absorbs heat from the warm air flowing through the machine. A malfunction that misdirects the flow of warm air can cause the coils to freeze over.
- Dirty condenser coils. Located in the outdoor unit, your AC’s condenser coils can become grimey when not regularly maintained and lead to mechanical issues.
- Fan malfunction. Fans control airflow into and out of the units. There are many reasons why a fan might malfunction. Fan problems should be fixed immediately, as they may also lead to compressor failure.
- Duct problems. Sometimes, the issue doesn’t lie in your AC at all, but in the ductwork of your home. If your system is in good condition, the air may be escaping behind the walls and driving up your energy bill.
- Thermostat malfunction. If your thermostat is not properly functioning, the system can’t be reliably adjusted. The problem might also be that the device was miscalibrated or incorrect settings are selected.
- Clogged drains. Your air conditioner is constantly removing moisture from the air in your home as part of its design. If your air conditioner is directing water to a clogged drainage system, it may become damaged by backflow.
