Snowstorms and Air Conditioners

Cooling
Service

We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Muskogee just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with 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 may bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures start to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can inhibit a high-efficiency system from running as such. The situation could become an even bigger 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 operate correctly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the upcoming days and weeks.

  1. Maintain a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Walk around the area routinely to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have built up throughout the winter.
  2. Contrary to what you may think, placing a cover over your air conditioner may 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, causing damage to the system as they roam about.

While the weather in Muskogee will more than likely swing up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the possibility of weather that can alter 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 related to air conditioner service or adding a new system. Keeping you and your family safe and comfortable is our highest priority. Give us a call at 918-534-8286 to receive more information.
