With major storms rolling down from the North, Florida is set to endure
an unusually wet winter. The high level of moisture in the air, coupled
with the low temperatures, can cause frost to form on your AC system,
affecting its ability to function in the long term. The
AC repair professionals at Del-Air specialize in keeping your system working at
top capacity throughout the year. Here are a few steps you can take to
protect your outdoor AC unit from an icy winter:
Keep Your AC Clean
Want to ensure your outdoor air conditioner is protected from frost? Letting
ice accumulate during the winter can result in permanent damage to your
unit. To prevent icy buildup, wait for a warm day and then hose down your
unit to remove debris and dirt before allowing it to dry thoroughly. You
should also clean the fans and blades carefully. Keeping the unit clean
will help prevent it from freezing on its own.
Purchase an AC Cover
Temperatures in Florida can drop dramatically. To keep your outdoor unit
safe, purchase plastic or vinyl covering to use on nights where the thermostat
is predicted to plummet. You may also want to use rope to tie down the
cover if the weather is particularly windy. Unsure about what cover to
purchase? Contact the experts at Del-Air to find out what cover is ideal
for your specific system.
