Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still dropping in Saint Charles, it’s about time to think about preparing your air conditioner for the off season. Whether it’s with air conditioner service or by taking a couple basic steps before the temperatures drop for good, you can help make sure your air conditioner is prepped to perform properly when it warms up again.

  1. Now is the time to consider arranging regular air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Saint Charles. Setting up a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take care of a host of crucial air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, like the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and changing your air filter —just to name a couple.

  2. Think about adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers could be a big help in preventing your pipes from freezing when the temperatures go down.

  3. Clear the area near your air conditioner to make sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could diminish the performance of your air conditioner or the technician completing your air conditioner service. This is something you can do throughout the year, so work to keep two to three feet of space around the air conditioner free from debris.

These are just three tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for less work this time of year. With seasons transitioning, it’s important to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you commence utilizing it when it gets warmer.
