Spring means warm weather, fresh fruits and veggies… and of course, spring cleaning. Here are a few house and HVAC-related responsibilities that the team at Del-Air recommends you complete each year before the start of summer.

Air Conditioner

Spring is a great time to make sure your heating and Tampa air conditioning equipment is in good working order. Before summer starts, take a few minutes to check and replace your air filters. Additionally, you should examine the drainage hole on the base of the cabinet and use a wire to clear out any debris. Finally, you should remove your dehumidifier from its casing, vacuum it out, and allow it to dry completely before replacing it.


Want to get your bathroom in good shape before summer? Use spring cleaning as an excuse to clean out your bathroom fan. Simply shut off the power to the fan and then wipe off the blades and wash them with soapy water. Finally, you should assess your toilet flappers for leaks and clean and de-rust the handles on your faucets.

Windows and Doors

Spring is also a smart time to check the weather stripping on your windows and replace any holes in the screens. An easy fix for small screen tears is household cement. Simply place some cement over the hole using a toothpick and Q-tip and say goodbye to your screen problems.


Of course, there’s nothing more important than your family’s health and safety. To keep your loved ones secure, be sure to change out the batteries in your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector. You should also test them to be sure that they’re working properly and vacuum out any dust.
