Winter HVAC Maintenance Tips

air conditioning repair davie fl

It may be a cold winter season for many parts of the United States, but in Florida, the warm weather carries on regardless of the month on the calendar. In Davie, FL the temperatures still manage to go up to 80 degrees, necessitating the use of the air conditioning system. To help you get the most out of your HVAC, Air Pros’ air conditioning repair techs compiled a list of helpful tips that will maintain your AC in great shape. Read on to learn how you can care for your HVAC this winter while also maximizing its benefits. 

How to Prepare Your Home This Winter

Unblock the Vents

Are you wondering why the airflow is seemingly inexistent? Maybe you have any plants, furniture, or decor blocking your vents.  We recommend removing those pieces away from them. Doing so will help support good air flow from the AC unit and into your home. 

Sometimes, airflow doesn’t come through whether the vents are blocked or not. If that is the case for you, you may need to contact an air conditioning repair tech in Davie, FL. They will check for the following problems: 

  • Clogged air filters
  • Low refrigerant fluid levels
  • Broken blow motor
  • Downed AC capacitor

Don’t hesitate to reach out for help for a direct solution to any airflow problems in your HVAC system. If your AC unit is blowing hot air, find out the possible reasons why on our blog. 

Check Your Thermostat

One of the best practices to adopt before the start of any new season is to check the thermostat to ensure that it is supplied with a fresh set of batteries. There’s nothing worse than to find yourself with a downed ac unit simply because of a thermostat that is out of batteries. These types of things always happen on particularly hot days when you are expecting company to arrive any minute. If your thermostat has a fresh set of batteries but won’t turn on, you may need to contact an air conditioning repair service in Davie, FL to help resolve the issue. 

Clean the Area Around the Condensing Unit

The condenser, or the outdoor AC unit tends to be a catch all for toys, debris, dirt, and other various items. We suggest cleaning the area around the unit and ensuring that nothing is standing within two feet around it. If any debris gets into the unit, it will impede its ability to produce quality air and the appropriate temperatures to cool the home. 

Cleaning the outdoor unit of the HVAC system is part of a regular HVAC maintenance schedule. If you haven’t had a maintenance check up for your unit this year, contact an air conditioning repair tech in Davie, FL today.

The outdoor unit consists of four main parts that create the cooling magical air for the home. Learn about these parts on our blog. 

Check Doors and Windows for Drafts

For the sake of efficiency, we also recommend checking the doors and windows for drafts. If any outdoor air is seeping into the home, your AC will have a harder time creating the desired temperatures. This is mainly because the AC is designed with sensors that pick up on any temperature disruptions and trigger the unit to respond to those temperatures. 

Very frequently, this results in a worn out system whose lifespan can be decreased as a result of the additional strain. If you’re interested in learning how to prolong the lifespan of your HVAC, check out our tips on our blog. 

Change Air Filters

Another important winter HVAC tip is to check your air filters at least every four to six weeks. If they seem too dirty, you will need to change them. This step will help you maintain a good quality of air in your home and maintain proper air flow from the AC unit. If air filters aren’t changed in a timely manner, they may impact the performance of your AC and decrease its efficiency.
