If you’ve been keeping up with our blogs, then you know by now how important it is to regulate your home’s moisture levels. At Del-Air Heating & Air Conditioning, our professionals offer tons of tips for both waterproofing your property and taking care of the issues that emerge after a leak or serious storm. Check out the following suggestions for keeping your home moisture–and mold–free and then call our AC repair technicians for an appointment:

Repair Leaks

Living in Florida, then you know that rain is a fact of life. However, you may not realize that the frequent storms can have a serious effect on your home’s structure. To protect your property, it’s important that you identify any and all sources of water collection. Additionally, you should repair leaks and seal windows, doors, and plumbing fixtures with caulk or stripping. You may also want to replace old heating and AC systems, as these are more likely to leak water into the home.

Dry Out Spills

Want to protect your home from damage? Be sure to clean up standing water post-haste. When left to sit for more than 24 hours, spills can cause serious damage to your floors and carpets. Using a wet vac to remove standing water is the best way to prevent mold and other issues that can affect your family’s health.

Install a Dehumidifier

Of course, it’s not only standing water than can injure your property. An overabundance of moisture can also have a serious effect on your home’s structure as well as the quality of the air your family is breathing. To minimize heat and humidity, you may want to consider installing a whole-home dehumidifier. Not only do dehumidification systems remove moisture from the air, filtering out dust and other allergens, but they also decrease the strain on your AC system. You can save on your electric bill while preserving your family’s health and comfort throughout the year.

Schedule an Inspection

Finally, you should make sure to have your HVAC system examined by a professional before trying to use it again after a storm. From shorting out your electrical system to eroding the inner workings of your unit, hurricanes and other serious storms can cause a great deal of damage to your AC. At Del-Air, we provide prompt repair service so you’ll never be without heating or AC for long. Additionally, we offer comprehensive preventative AC maintenance packages to keep your system functioning at top capacity throughout the year.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
