Getting Your Home Ready for the Florida Heat

How HVAC Pros Prepare Their Homes for a Florida Summer

Florida’s summers bring sweltering heat and intense humidity levels, causing your air conditioner to work overtime. Before the full force of summer weather hits, follow this checklist from the HVAC experts at Iceberg Home Services. These steps will help you prepare you home so that you can stay cool and comfortable at an affordable rate.

Your Florida Summer HVAC Checklist

1. Change Your Filters

Your air conditioner already works hard enough to beat the Florida heat, so don’t make it work even more due to dirty air filters. If you don’t regularly change your air filters, they can become clogged and dirty which worsens your air quality and lowers the efficiency of your HVAC system.

2. Clean Your Ducts & Vents

Give your vents a good cleaning to ensure dust and dirt aren’t impeding your airflow. You should also schedule professional duct cleaning services every few years. Your ducts accumulate large amounts of dust, dirt, and debris, so a professional cleaning service before summer hits can ensure that your HVAC system runs more efficiently.

3. Open Your Vents

This may seem like a simple step, but it’s an easy one to overlook. If you’ve closed your vents or even accidentally knocked them partially closed while cleaning, it’s time to reopen them. Open vents allow for easy airflow throughout your home so that you’re not wasting the cool air your AC produces.

4. Inspect Your Outdoor AC Unit

Take a look at the outdoor unit of your air conditioning system. Is it dirty, covered in debris, or blocked off? These issues can all cause problems with your air conditioner, leading to higher cooling costs and a higher risk of needing repairs. Clean your unit off and ensure the area immediately around it is free from debris.

5. Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance

Regular tune-ups are the best way to prepare your home and your air conditioner for the summer weather. At Iceberg Home Services, our highly trained technicians provide thorough air conditioning maintenance services that will have your unit in top-notch shape.

Scheduling a professional AC tune-up before the summer hits allows our technicians to catch any issues with your system early on. This way, you can prevent these problems from spiraling into costly repairs.
