In Florida, one cannot survive without some sort of air conditioning system. As part of our commitment to keeping Floridians cool, Del-Air, experts in AC service in Tampa, is eager to share some tricks of the trade for getting the most out of your AC unit. Without further ado, here are our top tips for maximizing your AC function in the coming months.
Be sure that trash and debris are cleared from the condenser. Otherwise, dust and dirt can affect the quality of air inside your home as well as the cooling power of your unit.
Ensure that your AC’s thermostat triggers the unit at the right time. In some cases, a faulty thermostat can prevent your unit from turning on at all. If the unit turns on manually, try replacing the thermostat batteries. In other cases, the unit might not turn off when the temperature is reached. In these cases, the thermostat might need replacing.
Clear the condensate drain. Not only can mold grow and clog the drain, affecting your system’s cooling power, but it can also lead to unpleasant odors and even water damage in your home.
Clean air vents and registers and most importantly, change the air filter regularly. A dirty filter can have a significant effect on the quality of air your family breathes and aggravate cases of asthma and allergies.
Make sure the air conditioner is sized properly for your home. If the unit is too large, it will turn on and off more frequently. The end result is more wear and tear for your system. On the other hand, if the AC is too small for your home, it may not have the power to cool your rooms appropriately.
