Spring Cleaning For Your Air Conditioning Unit


Spring is here, and most people use this time of year to scrub every part
of the house until it sparkles. However, if you are just paying attention
to the parts of the house that you can see, you are only doing half of
the job. Whether you need basic maintenance, or more extensive
AC service in Tampa, don’t hesitate to contact Del-Air for all your needs.

When you maintain large appliances like your AC unit each spring, your
entire house can be clean and dust free. After all, a clogged system is
more likely to circulate dirty air through the home. Not only does a dirty
AC work less effectively, but it also affects the health of you and your
loved ones, exacerbating colds and allergies. Additionally, by taking
the time to work on your air conditioning unit now, you will ensure that
it is ready to go when the first hot summer day arrives.

Here are five tips for getting your AC unit ready for another season of service:

  • Check the Filters – Air filters that are clogged or dirty can impact
    the efficiency of your AC unit. Neglecting to change your filters can
    cause the entire system to freeze up when the summer heat strikes in full force.
  • Clean the Outdoor Unit – To ensure your AC is ready for the warm
    weather, take the time to clear away plants, dirt, and any obstructions
    around the system’s outdoor component. Additionally, you should
    vacuum out the cage, removing leaves and debris.
  • Inspect Ductwork – If your ductwork is full of holes, it might be
    leaking your expensive climate-controlled air into the ether. For best
    results, have these cracks and openings sealed by a professional AC repair
    person and ensure all connectors are airtight.
  • Test Your Unit – As Florida residents ourselves, we know how hot
    the summers can get in this part of the country. With that in mind, we
    recommend that homeowners test their ACs now when providers aren’t
    as busy. If something goes wrong, you will have plenty of time to arrange
    for service before the heat hits in full force.
