We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Eastland 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 could bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures start 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 larger problem too if you don’t plan for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are things you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner work correctly 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. Check the area regularly to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have piled up through the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, placing a cover over your air conditioner might 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, possibly meaning damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Eastland will probably fluctuate up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the chance of weather that can alter the performance of your air conditioner.
