Air Conditioning Spring Cleaning!
Spring in Florida can be very hot or “very” cold! It is important that your AC is in good shape as we get ready for Florida’s summer heat.
Whether you have an older AC unit, or recently purchased a new one, it is important to regularly keep up with your air conditioner so that you can extend its life and save yourself unexpected costs down the line.
You’d be surprised at how much just a little maintenance can do long term, and as always, for additional help, don’t hesitate to contact our certified technicians to help you get started!
Top 4 Ways to Keep Up with Your AC Unit
1. Routinely Change Your Filters
Regularly changing your air filters can make the difference between high or low energy bills, a short or long-lasting AC lifespan and of course… dirty or clean air. Regularly swapping out your filter for a new one will not only help your AC unit run more smoothly, but it will help you save money and problems.
2. Remove Debris & Dirt
If you happen to notice outdoor leaves and debris accumulating around your outdoor AC unit, remove it from the unit’s surroundings. Keeping the area clear around your AC unit is necessary to prevent buildup from getting into the AC and airflow blockages.
3. Pour White Vinegar or Chlorine (if chlorine sensible) down AC unit drain lines to prevent clogging
You can prevent a clogged AC drain by performing routine cleaning. By pouring a ¼ cup of vinegar into your AC’s drain line, you will kill any mold, algae, mildew, and other forms of bacteria or fungi, preventing it from forming a buildup and causing a clog.
4. Get your AC Checked by Professionals
If you need more assistance evaluating the lifespan of your AC unit, schedule a recommended annual maintenance visit. This will ensure all your coils are kept clean, your unit is operating at maximum capacity and prevent you from dealing with inconvenient and preventable surprises down the line.
5. Consider adding an air scrubber to your air conditioning system
Many people suffer from allergies to dust mites, allergens & other particles floating around your home. If you would like a solution to improve your indoor air quality by disrupting airborne contaminants and pollutants, you may want to consider adding an Air Scrubber to your existing HVAC system.
Combining a titanium dioxide-coated honeycomb matrix and a UV germicidal lights, an Air Scrubber cleans the air circulating through your home and also helps to clean surfaces such as countertops, bathrooms, kitchens, and doorknobs!
