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.

Contact an Expert HVAC Business

With rising utility costs, you want to do everything in your power to ensure your system is functioning properly. If you think your system may have suffered frost damage, don’t hesitate to contact Del-Air’s expert team for services. Whether your AC needs repair, replacement or regular monthly maintenance, Del-Air can provide you with the highest quality service available.

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…
