We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Alliance just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with 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 a professional out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall can 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 keep a high-efficiency system from running 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 work correctly 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. Check the area regularly to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have piled up 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 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 Alliance will more than likely fluctuate up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the possibility of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner.
