Covering your Air Conditioning Unit

We have seen in some parts of Florida that some homeowners do cover their Air Conditioning Unit during the rainy season to avoid getting debris blown into the unit.

This is not the wise step as we have high humidity around us in Florida & doing so you are trapping in the moisture which can lead to mold, rust & rot. It is vital for your Air Conditioning Compressor to have air circulation. It is best that you don’t cover your Air Conditioning Unit & keep it uncovered.

Lightning & Hail

Heavy storms & rain sometimes bring hail. Although it is not visible in the Sunshine. Hail can damage your Air Conditioning Unit.

It is always a good option to call for experts to look after your conditioning unit.
