We haven’t completely made it through winter in Zelienople just yet. Mother Nature may have a few nice days, but she’s always prepared to remind us that she’s in charge. So when she does finally let up and it starts to warm up, read below so you won’t want to have to unexpectedly call us for out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall may bury your air conditioner in the snow, hurting its performance when the temperatures begin to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can keep a high-efficiency system from performing as such. The situation could become an even greater problem too if you don’t prepare for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are steps you can take as a homeowner to help your air conditioner operate as it should even though snow has fallen or could fall in the upcoming days and weeks.
- Maintain a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Walk around the area regularly to make sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have accumulated during the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, placing a cover over your air conditioner may end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner could be inviting for rodents looking for shelter from the weather and start to call it home, possibly meaning damage to the system as they roam about.
