Want to get the most out of your home’s heating and cooling system? Preventative maintenance is crucial for ensuring your family’s year-round comfort as well as keeping operating costs on the down low. Here are some tips for taking care of your Florida HVAC system now and throughout the year from your Tampa air conditioning experts at Del-Air.:
Been awhile since your last HVAC tune-up? To get your system back in good-working order, consider replacing your current air filter with a high-efficiency pleated model. Replacing your filter helps keep the air in your home clean while the new design lets it flow more easily around the pleats. Additionally, homeowners should inspect their outdoor unit components, ensuring they’re free of leaves and dirt. For optimal performance, aim to keep two feet of space clear around the sides of your unit as vegetation and debris could affect the system’s ability to operate.
Every Two Months or Seasonally:
The maintenance needs of your HVAC system changes throughout the year. Every few months, your heating and cooling products may require more extensive service. At Del-Air, we recommend that homeowners inspect their refrigerant lines on a seasonal basis, as damaged lines can disrupt the system’s internal components, shortening its lifespan. Additionally, you should continue to replace your air filter every few months to minimize pollution and debris in your system. Finally, you may want to consider scheduling a preventative maintenance package through Del-Air. We proudly perform bi-annual, 20-point checks to keep your system functioning at top capacity.
Annual maintenance is crucial to preserving your family’s year-round comfort as well as the long-term health of your HVAC system. Along with switching out your carbon-monoxide detector annually, you should check that the ground around the unit is firm and level. Finally, it’s a good idea to clean out the system’s condensate drain by washing it with a mixture of bleach and water.
