We haven’t completely escaped winter in Safford just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always prepped 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 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 prepare for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are steps you can take as a homeowner to help your air conditioner work 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 frequently to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have piled up throughout 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 may 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 Safford will most likely go up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner.
