Have your AC system checked by a certified professional

A licensed contractor can provide maintenance and check for things like low refrigerant, dirty coils, clogged drains and more.

Change your Air Filter

Even though you were away, Sunset Air suggests changing that filter right away. Dust and other particles from the air collect even during limited activity and this will help add to the efficiency of your system and provide cleaner air for you and your loved ones.

Mold prevention

Dealing with moisture is among the number one Seasonal Resident AC Tips! Moisture and humidity are at an all-time high in Florida. That hot, humid, salty air can cause a multitude of problems for your appliances, furniture, fixtures and more.

Make sure all your exterior windows and doors are sealed up tight to prevent the spread of additional moisture that could cause mold and mildew. Remember to check other places that moisture could seep in like vents and chimneys. Also, leave those interior doors open to encourage air flow.

Thermostat Settings

Sunset Air suggests leaving those thermostats to run a few hours a day when you are gone. This will allow for air to flow throughout the system and help prevent moisture from building up. A programmable thermostat is more energy-efficient and most effective. You can set up alerts on your phone, too, for easy monitoring.
