We haven’t completely escaped winter in Troy just yet. Mother Nature has given us a few nice days, but she’s always prepped to remind us that she’s in full control. 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 inhibit a high-efficiency system from performing as such. The situation could become an even bigger problem too if you don’t prep for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are steps you can take as a homeowner to help your air conditioner run correctly 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. Inspect the area frequently to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that may have piled up through the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, putting a cover over your air conditioner could 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, possibly meaning damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Troy 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. At Edington Heating & Cooling Inc in Troy, we are always available to inspect any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re in regards to air conditioner service or buying a new system.
