Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the environment is still changing in Saint Charles, it’s about time to prep your air conditioner for the off season. Whether it’s with air conditioner service or by taking a few basic steps before the temperatures drop for the last time, you can help ensure your air conditioner is prepped to perform properly when it warms up again.

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

  2. Think about adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers could be a big help in protecting 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 clear 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 critical to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you commence utilizing it when it warms up.
