We haven’t completely escaped winter in Kutztown just yet. Mother Nature may have 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 repairman out 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 bigger problem too if you don’t prep for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are things you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner work properly 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 routinely to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that may have built up through the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, putting a cover over your air conditioner may end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner could 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.
