We haven’t completely made it through winter in Wisconsin Rapids just yet. Mother Nature has given us a few nice days, but she’s always ready 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 may bury your air conditioner in the snow, hurting its performance when the temperatures finally warm up for the season. Not to mention it can hinder a high-efficiency system from running as such. The situation could become an even greater problem too if you don’t plan for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are things you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner run as it should even though snow has fallen or could fall in the coming days and weeks.
- Ensure you have a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Inspect the area routinely to make sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have accumulated during the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, placing a cover over 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, causing damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Wisconsin Rapids will most likely fluctuate up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can impact the performance of your air conditioner.
