We haven’t completely escaped winter in Middletown just yet. Mother Nature has given us a few nice days, but she’s always ready to remind us that she’s the boss. 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, diminishing its performance when the temperatures start to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can keep a high-efficiency system from operating as such. The situation could become an even greater problem too if you don’t prep for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are preparations you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner operate properly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the approaching days and weeks.
- Ensure you have a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Walk around the area routinely to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could 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 can be inviting for rodents looking for shelter from the weather and start to call it home, leading to damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Middletown will more than likely fluctuate up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can alter the performance of your air conditioner. At SchagrinGAS Company in Middletown, we are always available to take a look at any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re related to air conditioner service or purchasing a new system.
