It’s still warm but our version of winter will arrive before we know it. The reality is that no matter how mild the weather is during “winter,” people in Florida still need heating because we will experience lower, cooler temperatures.
Here are ways on how to maintain your air-conditioner during the winter season.
Install a thermostat in your home
A thermostat is a huge help in maintaining a cool temperature since there are times when you tend to forget to adjust the settings. The newer, smart thermostats do all the work for you.
Check and clean the exterior of your system and also the outdoor space around it
Plants and branches can block the exterior parts of your HVAC system so check to make sure nothing is blocking it. Dirt can also damage these parts, so clean the area using a hose.
Change your air filters frequently
The filters in your air-conditioner act as a barrier against pollutants that can damage your system. Such pollutants include dust and particles that can accumulate in your unit. It is important to change them from time to time.
Hire an air-conditioning professional to do a maintenance check
Thankfully, we specialize in preventive maintenance and our services include the following:
- Check refrigerants
- Clean coils
- Grease bearings
- Replace air filters

This was a quick run-down on why you should get your HVAC ready for winter weather long before those Halloween decorations start to go up. So if you’d like more detailed information, we have a page with more important information.
