We haven’t completely made it through winter in Belton just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with 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 may 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 keep a high-efficiency system from operating as such. The situation could become an even greater problem too if you don’t prep for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are things you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner run properly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the coming days and weeks.
- Keep 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 may have piled up through the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, covering your air conditioner might end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner may 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 Belton will probably go up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can impact the performance of your air conditioner.
