We haven’t completely made it through winter in Savage 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 a professional out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall may bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures finally 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 larger problem too if you don’t prepare for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are things 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 upcoming days and weeks.
- Maintain 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 might have built up through the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, covering 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, causing damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Savage will more than likely swing up and down over the last few days of winter, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can impact the performance of your air conditioner.
