We haven’t completely escaped winter in Huffman just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with 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 a professional out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall may bury your air conditioner in the snow, hurting its performance when the temperatures begin to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can inhibit a high-efficiency system from performing as such. The situation could become an even bigger problem too if you don’t prepare for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are preparations you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner work properly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the approaching days and weeks.
- Maintain 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 built up during the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, placing a cover over your air conditioner might 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 Huffman will most likely swing up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the chance of weather that can alter the performance of your air conditioner.
