Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still fluxuating in Wheeling, it’s about time to think about preparing your air conditioner for the off season. Whether it’s with air conditioner service or by taking a few basic steps before the temperatures drop one last time, you can help make sure your air conditioner is prepped to perform correctly when it heats up again.

  1. Now is the time to consider scheduling regular air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Wheeling. Setting up a Precision Tune-Up now can help you handle a variety of crucial air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, like the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and swapping out your air filter —just to name a few.

  2. Ponder adding foam pipe covers for any of your unprotected exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers may be a big help in preventing your pipes from freezing when the temperatures go down.

  3. Clear the area near your air conditioner to make sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could diminish the performance of your air conditioner or the technician performing your air conditioner service. This is something you can do throughout the year, so aim to keep two to three feet of space around the air conditioner free from debris.

These are just a few tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for less work this season. With seasons changing, it’s important to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you start utilizing it when it heats up.
