We haven’t completely escaped winter in Dresden just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always ready 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 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 hinder a high-efficiency system from operating as such. The situation could become an even greater 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 operate properly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the coming days and weeks.
- Ensure you have a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Walk around the area frequently to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that may have accumulated throughout the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, covering your air conditioner may 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, causing damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Dresden will more than likely go up and down over the last few days of winter, you can’t count out the possibility of weather that can alter the performance of your air conditioner. At McFadden Heating & Cooling in Dresden, we are always available to inspect any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re about air conditioner service or buying a new system. Keeping you and your family safe and comfortable is our top priority. Give us a call at 1-866-781-0111 to receive more information.
