We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Lake Worth just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always prepared to remind us that she’s the boss. 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 professional out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall can bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures begin to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can inhibit a high-efficiency system from performing 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 steps you can take as a homeowner to help your air conditioner operate correctly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the approaching days and weeks.
- Maintain a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Check the area routinely to make sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have built 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 can 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 Lake Worth 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 alter the performance of your air conditioner.
