We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Ronkonkoma just yet. Mother Nature has given us a few nice days, but she’s always prepped 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 repairman out out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall could 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 keep a high-efficiency system from running as such. The situation could become an even larger 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 run properly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the upcoming days and weeks.
- Keep a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Check the area regularly to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have accumulated through 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 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.
