We haven’t completely made it through winter in Muskogee 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 us for 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 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 preparations you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner operate 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. Walk around the area regularly to make sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have accumulated 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 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.
While the weather in Muskogee will more than likely fluctuate up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the chance of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner. At Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. in Muskogee, we are always available to take a look at any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re about air conditioner service or adding a new system.
