Florida summers can cross an average daily temperature of 90 degrees. That means your air conditioning units should be ready for the heat and humidity for you to enjoy a comfortable indoor environment.
A well-maintained HVAC unit will keep you cool, adjust indoor humidity and clean air quality. Conducting regular check-ups and avail timely home AC repair services will also extend the lifespan of your unit.
Preparing your AC for Summer
Clear air filter congestion
The air filter is responsible for preventing dust, pet dander, pollen, grease from entering the unit. If you don’t regularly clean or maintain your filter, it gets clogged, restricting the airflow. The dust and contaminants collected in your filter can redistribute in areas that could cause various allergies and respiratory difficulties.
The blockage also causes the unit to work harder, affecting your energy bills. Make sure to clean your filters every month or replace them if you have a disposable one.
Check the condenser for debris
Your outside unit or condenser is prone to the accumulation of debris such as weeds, insects, twigs, and dust, especially if left uncovered and unused for a while. Even the presence of the tiniest objects can hinder the proper functioning of the unit.
Examine the coolant line insulation
The coolant line of your AC runs from the evaporator in the inside unit to the condenser. If the pipe is not properly insulated, it can cause condensation and affect thermal efficacy.
