We haven’t completely made it through winter in Kingsville just yet. Mother Nature has given us a few nice days, but she’s always prepared 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, hindering its performance when the temperatures start to 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 steps you can take as a homeowner to help your air conditioner run 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. Walk around the area routinely to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have accumulated during the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, putting 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, leading to damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Kingsville will most likely swing up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the possibility of weather that can impact the performance of your air conditioner. At Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC in Kingsville, we are always available to inspect any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re related to air conditioner service or purchasing a new system.
