The heat is starting to come back, and with the state of the world right now, Floridians may not have the ability to enjoy the weather outdoors like we normally would. If you’re cooped up indoors this summer, your air conditioner needs to be in tip-top shape to deal with increased demand. Here are some tips to help your air conditioner not only cope, but thrive during the summer!
Replace Your Air Filters
Air filter replacements are the most vital part of your normal HVAC maintenance. This should be done every month, if possible. Your air filter not only helps your indoor air quality, but it helps your system stay functioning and healthy. Accumulated dirt and grime can harm your HVAC system and make it more likely to break down. If you haven’t replaced your air filter this month, do so to keep your system running well!
Clean Your Condenser Coils
Condenser coils are located externally and dissipate the heat that is leaving home. It can’t do this job well if it’s covered in dirt and grime. That causes a domino effect of keeping heat trapped inside and overworking your system leading to a higher chance of damage for your AC.
Check the Refrigerant Levels
Your AC requires refrigerant to do its job. Unfortunately, this isn’t safe for DIY inspection. Refrigerant is a chemical that is very toxic, and even if it doesn’t harm you, it can harm the environment. Call a professional to check your refrigerant level if you suspect there is an issue with your system.
The biggest issue you have to worry about is a leak of refrigerant since it is so important to your system, and it is toxic to the environment.
