Snowstorms and Air Conditioners

We haven’t completely made it through winter in Englewood just yet. Mother Nature may have 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 professional out for air conditioner service.

Heavy snowfall may bury your air conditioner in the snow, diminishing its performance when the temperatures finally warm up for the season. Not to mention it can keep a high-efficiency system from operating 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 preparations 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.

  1. Ensure you have a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Inspect the area frequently to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that may have piled up throughout the winter.
  2. Contrary to what you may think, covering your air conditioner may end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner could 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 Englewood will most likely fluctuate up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the chance of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner. At Symbiont Service Corp in Englewood, we are always available to check any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re in regards to air conditioner service or buying a new system.
