We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Pflugerville just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always ready to remind us that she’s the boss. 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 could bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures finally 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 larger problem too if you don’t prep for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are preparations you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner run as it should even though snow has fallen or could fall in the approaching days and weeks.
- Ensure you have a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Inspect the area regularly to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have piled up throughout the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, covering your air conditioner could 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.
