We haven’t completely escaped winter in Circleville just yet. Mother Nature may have a few nice days, but she’s always prepared to remind us that she’s in charge. 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 could bury your air conditioner in the snow, diminishing its performance when the temperatures begin to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can inhibit a high-efficiency system from operating as such. The situation could become an even greater problem too if you don’t plan 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 make sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have piled 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, possibly meaning damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Circleville will most likely swing up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner.
