We haven’t completely made it through winter in East Bernard just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always ready 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 can bury your air conditioner in the snow, diminishing its performance when the temperatures begin to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can inhibit a high-efficiency system from running 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 preparations you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner operate as it should even though snow has fallen or could fall in the approaching days and weeks.
- Keep a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Walk around the area regularly to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have accumulated throughout 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 may 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 East Bernard will most likely swing up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can alter the performance of your air conditioner.
