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

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

  • I tell my family members up north that my southern state doesn’t easily have more than 2 seasons.

We get slightly colder weather between late Fall & early Springtime, however it rarely drops below 40 degrees even at evening. So as a result, the people I was with and I don’t deal with snow & ice during the Winter time months. It’s almost savor the weather a northern state would get in late November or early October, however instead thrown occasionally in random weeks. In other words, the people I was with and I never get an entire month of non-stop cold weather; instead, the people I was with and I get a single month of cooler weather followed by a month of overheated weather. When the people I was with and I finally get to May, there’s an drastically fast transition from Winter time into summer. It’s hard to say if the people I was with and I even experience a Springtime season here at all, & if the people I was with and I do it only lasts for more than one weeks at most. Naturally, I run my a/c a lot more here than I would in most other regions of the country. Even if I keep it as high as 70 degrees indoors, the a/c seems to cycle frequently. If I drop it to 74 degrees, it will run even longer. With more a/c use comes more condensation on the surface of the air handler. Thankfully, most Heating & 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 & into the pan. Just make sure to disinfect them at least once a year, as mold will grow overtime with subsequent exposure.
