We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Mankato area just yet. Mother Nature has given us 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 us for out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall can bury your air conditioner in the snow, hurting its performance when the temperatures start to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can inhibit a high-efficiency system from operating as such. The situation could become an even bigger 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 upcoming days and weeks.
- Ensure you have 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 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 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.
