WINTER HVAC TIPS FOR FLORIDA
We’re so thankful that Florida winters are never too severe. It’s one of the many reasons we enjoy being in Bonita Springs. But there are those days that can get pretty chilly in the wintertime. Below are some tips to keep in mind as we near those colder months.
- Have one of our certified team members do a routine maintenance on your unit before the cold weather hits. It’s never too late to be prepared.
- Prepare your home for the winter months. We’d recommend removing window AC units (if you have them) or covering them up to prevent drafts.
- Add weather stripping to windows and doors to stop drafts.
- When turning on your unit for the first time it is important to know what to expect. Sometimes when units are first turned on it will smell like something is burning. Usually this is dust burning off of the heating coils. The smell usually lasts 10-30 minutes. If the smell does not go away, turn the unit off and call Haines AC in Bonita Springs to take a look.
If you have any questions about your AC system in Bonita Springs please give us a call at 239-992-1551. Since winters in Florida are not that cold, you could even go the whole winter without turning your unit on, the plus side is energy savings!
