As more and more home and business owners in our area have invested in ductless mini split heat pumps, there has been an increasing need for skilled repair capabilities for this technically advanced equipment. At RJ’s Heating, Cooling, & Water Heaters, we have invested in decades of the training necessary to professional repair and maintain all types and manufacturers of modern mini split heat pumps.

If you feel your Metro Chicago area heat pump is not running properly, we're your one call for emergency repairs. Our EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) certified and factory trained technicians guarantee service on time, done right and priced right.

More than a few local companies now install mini split heat pumps, but only a handful have the training and experience necessary to competently repair them. For years we have featured Mitsubishi ductless mini splits, but we service all brands including Carrier, Daikin, Fujitsu, and Trane.

Do you need our help?

Very frequently we arrive on a service call only to find that the problem was one that the owner could have resolved without and particular skills or tools. You should consider checking these items before you call us to ensure you really the help of our professional heat pump service techs:

1. Check Operational Controls

  • If you are using hand held remotes, check the battery, and replace if necessary.
  • For heating operation, make sure that at least one zone is set to "ON", the "Mode" is set to "Heat" or "Auto" and the desired temperature is set well above ambient for heating operation.
  • For cooling operation, make sure that at least one zone is set to "ON", the "Mode" is set to "Cool" or "Auto" and the desired temperature is set well below ambient for cooling operation.

2. Check the System Power

  • Check your circuit breaker to ensure that you have not had a nuisance trip and your heat pump system does have power.
  • Check the power disconnect on the outdoor unit to ensure that it is "ON".
  • If your breaker or disconnect was off, after turning the power on, give it a few minutes: many systems have a built-in time delay.

3. Defrost Cycle

  • If you are operating in the heat mode, make sure that your system is not in “Defrost” mode. If it is wait a few minutes for your system to complete its defrost cycle.

4. Indoor Units

  • Check your indoor unit filters. If your filters have not been cleaned lately, clean them now.

After checking these items, if your mini split heat pump is still off or running improperly call us and we’ll dispatch a service tech to help! With our Honesty & Upfront Pricing and No Surprise Promise, you never have to worry that the service you receive will be less than the best or the cost will be anything other than what you agreed to.

Common Mini Split Heat Pump Service Issues

By far the most common cause of mini split heat pump failures, or customers that are dis-satisfied with their operation, is improper installation. We know how great a mini split heat pump system can be, but if it's improperly sized or improperly installed, they can fail to live up to their potential. Common problems include:

  • Refrigerant Loss: Due to improper installation or mechanical damage. This will result most commonly in reduced system capacity.
  • Outdoor Unit Fails to Start: Caused by improper wire or breaker sizing, or failed outdoor component.
  • Indoor Zone Fails to Start: Loose or defective control wiring. Obstructed of failed IR receiver.
  • Changes in Heating or Cooling Capacity: Caused by loss of refrigerant, or improper maintenance. Dirty indoor or outdoor coils
  • Condensation Leaks: Caused by indoor units installed out of level, or crimped or obstructed condensate lines.
  • Noisy operation Indoors or Out: May indicate a motor, compressor, or reversing system failure.
