We haven’t completely escaped winter in Buellton 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 can 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 running as such. The situation could become an even larger 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 work correctly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the upcoming days and weeks.
- Maintain a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Walk around the area frequently to make sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have built up during the winter.
- 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 may 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.
While the weather in Buellton will more than likely swing up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the possibility of weather that can impact the performance of your air conditioner. At Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning in Buellton, we are always available to check any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re in regards to air conditioner service or adding a new system.
