We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Macon just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always prepped 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 could bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures finally 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 things you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner operate properly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the approaching days and weeks.
- Ensure you have a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Walk around the area frequently to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have accumulated throughout the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, putting 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 Macon will more than likely go up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner.
