If you have a drip guard under your air handler, wash it at least once a year

It can be hard residing in a region that gets normal summer time weather during much of the entire year.

I tell our family members up north that our southern state doesn’t really have four seasons.

The two of us get slightly colder weather between late Autumn plus early Spring, however it rarely drops below 40 degrees even at night. So as a result, we don’t deal with snow plus ice during the Wintertide weeks. It’s almost care about the weather a northern state would get in late September or early September, however instead thrown occasionally in random weeks. In other words, we never get an entire month of non-stop chilly weather; instead, we get one month of cooler weather followed by a month of hot weather. When we finally get to April, there’s an harshly fast transition from Wintertide into summer. It’s difficult to say if we even experience a Spring season here at all, plus if we do it only lasts for numerous weeks at most. Naturally, I run our a/c a lot more here than I would in most other regions of the country. Even if I keep it as high as 76 degrees indoors, the a/c seems to cycle frequently. If I drop it to 71 degrees, it will run even longer. With more a/c use comes more condensation on the surface of the air handler. Thankfully, most Heating, Ventilation plus A/C manufacturers make metal drip pans that are linked to the bottom of the air handler, regardless of the kind of setup. Whenever the metal a/c sweats, the beads of condensation drip off the bottom plus into the pan. Just make sure to wash them at least once a year, as mold will grow overtime with subsequent exposure.
